    Default *TEAR*...yep i dropped it

    I dropped my baby today in a parking lot face down, okay I have dropped it a lot but this time I really hurt it, and the screen cracked from the left corner at the top down to the bottom right corner. The bottom works, but sadly, the top didn't make it and doesn't work to touch. I was so saddened, I just left the store where I was going and went straight to the AT&T store which they gave me a number to call. Oh and I happened to drop it again in the AT&T parking lot.

    I called AT&T and submitted a claim. They will review it and get back to me within 24 hours. Then send me a new Z10 overnight. Sadly that is a $200 deductible... Hey, that's how much I paid for it originally.

    Oh and totally my fault for wanting my phone nekked. I am not mad at BlackBerry. The new one however, will be protected.

    That's a doozy of a deductible for a phone.

    You're so right. They go by the retail price, not the new contract sale. Still ridiculous though. They are just going to take my phone, fix it, and resell it. It's a win win for those greedies.

    Switch to tmo and get Jump. Or get the screen fixed and do a warranty exchange. It's not the most honorable thing to do but then again your dealing with the darth vader of the cellphone companies

    It would might be cheaper just to go to your local cell phone repair shop. They can do amazing things in getting your phone back to prime.

    Asurion is 130 for the z10 but 175 for my wife's note 2. Needless to say, her cracked screen Is still cracked...way too much work to replace the glass. lcd and digitizer still work. Gorilla glass2 they say -_-

    Report lost n use old phone as spare parts. You didn't hear it from me. They won't lock phone either. Same deductible.

    This is my second one z10. My first one fell off my lap onto one of its top corners & cracked it's screen & the only thing that worked was the top button.

    I had it for like 9 days.

    I was arguing with my girl at the time. I started to blame her lol

    $150 insurance deductible

    Too bad to hear that, Erin. Good idea on adding protection on the second one. I got mine protected with a screen protector, a transformer shell and a seidio holster.

    Maybe you should get a protective case with a hand-strap!

    I have dropped mine a couple of times but the transform case has done a good job protecting it.

    I recommend a transform case and a screen protector to preserve the naked feel and get good protection

    That's why.. I lost it.. sell it on eBay. Will cover most of your deductible. Someone will gladly take it, fix it up, and sell it refurbished.

    Blame Blackberry. Perhaps if your phone were much less beautiful, dare I say, ugly, you'd want to cover that thing up with a case. This could've been avoided. In fact, where's the guy that starts all the petitions? I've got one for Blackberry ... Who's with me?

    No shame for wanting it naked. I purposely got only an impact resistant screen protector for it.

    Best of luck with getting it replaced soon!

    Just an FYI for those suggesting this: DO NOT report your phone as lost and then sell it to someone else, it WILL be added to a negative list and the other person will be unable to activate it on ANY carrier.

    Not to mention that, ya know, it would be FRAUD and all that rot...

    Well at least you don't have to pay full retail price so that's good. What are you using until you can replace it?
