    No insurance = screwed

    VZW will not take it back with a cracked screen, insurance is your only hope

    No just tell them you cracked your screen accidently and if they can send you a replacement, but before that make sure they cover physical damage or what insurance covers.

    i am not sure within how many days you can add insurance, but most companies allow 30 days, so call verizon and dont say anything about cracked screen and see if they can still add insurance for you, if they do then wait couple of days before you claim it.
    I do have insurance... got it the first day i got the phone... i was asking should i tell them i cracked the screen or should i say i lost it? not sure they will send me new one for admitting cracking the screen

    If you have insurance they will replace it no matter what you did to your phone.
    I think there is a $50 charge though, even with insurance.

    Yes, your insurance covers a cracked screen.

    If insurance won't cover it, the screen is available at cnn.cn for a c note.

    I am glad you did the correct thing. You shouldn't ask people if you should commit insurance fraud.

    When I lost my phone I had to call the local PD and get a case number or something. If you haven't lost your phone, I wouldn't suggest that route. I know you got a replacement phone but this info is for anybody reading who may contemplate saying they lost their phone instead of just saying it was damaged.

    That was a few years ago. Maybe their policy is different now for lost phones but it was a pain when I had to get a new one through asurion. (but when I've damaged my phones, it's been nothing but easy to get replacements through asurion)

    I dont understand, why even bother with the notion of saying its lost???You have insurance thats covers exactly what you did , cracked the screen. Why would you "lose" it?

    I (my wife) lost my phone in November. (Before I had my Storm). I had to file a police report and get a case number. Sounds like they still do this to deter fraud.

    I cracked my screen in my girlfriends chair, and Asurion sent me a new phone in box, and only asked me to return the old phone with no battery or charger. So, I paid $50 for a new phone, and double the accessories I originally had.
