    Hi folks,

    I have a dying 9650 and I need to do one of two things:

    1) insurance claim with Verizon
    2) Use my early upgrade and get the new blackberry bold touch screen

    I *know* that I want to get a new blackberry soon, as the 9650 is pretty slow running OS 6. I'm completely sure I want to stick with blackberry. What are your thoughts?

    Your phone is insured against dying?

    I did an insurance claim on 9650 last week and was sent a 9930. I have no idea if this was an accident or if insurance gives you the newest model. Had to pay $99 but happy to get newer model.

    That's awesome! That's the second one like your story I've read on here. Hope you get the 9930, OP! Let us know.

    Hi guys,

    Now that I got the Bold 9650, I really want the 9930. But I have early upgrade pricing now and will lose it if I don't wait. Is it worth upgrading now, or should I wait for the new bold to come out after this (whenever that may be?)

    If the phone is just dying (not physically broken) insurance (at least on VZW) also extends your manufacturer's warranty so you can get the device replaced for free (no deductible).

    It's probably the closest thing they had available at the time. They were replacing Tours with Bold's for a while after they came out at least for a while.
