You'll get your collections back when you sync your new Kindle but without the non Amazons books, though.
It could have been a lot worse, mate. Just be glad Amazon's CS is so friendly, and you'll get a new one.
Edit: Like bZkindle said don't tell Amazon that you opened it up. But it would be too late for them anyway since they already did send you a new one. Don't sweat it.
Yeah, I'll put the back back on and I don't see how they would even know that I took it off at one point.
