    Take it to a corporate store and have them look at it. Once they verify the problems, they'll send out a new one. Otherwise, call #611 and swap it out through them.

    i was wondering just this the other day. my storm is getting pretty worn as well. Before the storm, I traded in my LG every other month or so - i wasnt fond of any scratches. Anyway, I'd love to do the same with my Storm.. maybe not quite as often, but i have an original and it's pretty worn...

    do you need to have the insurance do swap it out with no charge if there is wear problems? Or do they do it out of courtesy and keeping consumers happy?

    There is a $50 deductable if you use your insurance. And I think you can only use it twice. Not positive though.

    If you have dust under the screen and the buttons are falling off, these are both manufacturing defects and are covered under the warranty.

    I called the VZW Blackberry Support line and explained I had dust under the screen (obscuring my view of the text). They confirmed my address (this was on a Saturday) and I had my replacement Storm on I think it was Wednesday. They included return postage in which to put my old storm!

    They asked me if there was any water damage or physical damage - this was to ascertain whether it would be a warranty replacement or an Insurance replacement.

    The warranty replacement is free, but there is a $50 Deductible on the Insurance (as other posters have stated).

    My buttons were coming loose. Went to Verizon store and they replaced it with a brand new unit. No questions asked--even when they noticed I had OS .99 in it!

    I wouldn't recommend hiving them any excuse to mess you around. I wiped the leaked OS from mine before returning it

    this is sort of true - $50 deductable is right...

    you can only make 1 claim in a 12 month period. If you make a 2nd claim less than 12 mos from the first one, they drop you for a year...

    then you just keep your fingers crossed until you can re-up LOL

    Lies! I've claimed 3 times in one year! They just make it harder each time. Like for instance the last time I had to print a form and fill it out and send a photo copy of my drivers license

    What happens if you claim it lost or stolen and they send you a new one...can you ever use the old one again if you find it?
