    long story short- i dropped my phone while getting out of my car and the screen cracked. all i get is a white bright light with a whole bunch of lines. worried that the phone was gone for good, i connected it to DM and everything seems to be working fine. i also got a miss call but i didn't get the ring, just the red blinking light. my question is, should i get a replacement phone(my 4th, and i only had this for 2 weeks) or can the techs and verizon store help fix for a minimal charge? and also, if they charge, how much? or should i just get a replacement for 50$?

    I think it would be easier to replace it, I know its 50 bucks but it would probably take away some headaches.

    thanks! that's what i was thinking, too. i'm just afraid because vzw keeps track of phone records and this is going to be my 5th(in less than 6 months). first two were replaced because of screen clicks, 2nd and 3rd due to dust under the screen. wow...

    **edit**
    to make my situation worse. vzw doesn't fix screens so i'm forced to get a replacement. for those who are wondering how much replacements are, its no longer 50$, they just charged me 69.99!(whats insurance for anyway?) just came in effect last sunday...DONT BREAK YOUR PHONE!

    I thought you could only make two claims a year with Asurion?

    $69.99 w/ Asurion for any pda devices. With Asurion u can make up to 2 claims a year, after the 3rd you will be charged for the actual price of the phone. It's done now, i got charged but luckily with fedex 2day delivery i will have it by Wednesday.

    $70 for any PDA?? It must be different for different carriers. I filed a claim on my daughter's RAZR 2 when i was with Alltel and i had to pay $95 for that POS.
