Hmm...depends on where it broke. If it left the pads on the board you're in 
luck, but it's trickier if you ripped the pads off the board. A photo might 
help if you can get a good clear one.

Given the questions you're asking it may be beyond your current abilities to 
fix yourself. If you can find a good local phone repair place they might be 
able to fix it for you. Having the schematics and component layout will 
certainly help them!
