    I dropped my Storm, and cracked the screen. I don't have insurance on the phone, and was wondering if anybody had any advice on how to either get a replacement phone or new display. Any info is much appreciated..THANKS

    (Yes in know I should have had it in a protective case, and should have gotten insurance...SHAME ON ME!!!)

    With Verizon you have 15 days to add insurance after activating the phone.

    You could always call in a bogus software issue and have them replace it for that. I know of a few people who did that and Verizon never back charged them when they got the broken phone back.

    tell them the truth..you can't see the screen clearly and battery pull didn't help.

    They get it back and complain it's cracked?..Those Fedex guys!! you really should talk to your survisors on creating a stronger return box.
