    Hey everyone,

    This scratch started off really small and grew till it reached the edge of the phone (like a windshield when its cracked). If i run my fingernail along it i can only feel an indent where the scratch originated from. Does anyone have any advice in buffing it out? i dont want to make it worse...also do you think having a screen protector will help conceal it more?

    Thanks


    attached is what it looks like

    If you got insurance on the phone, you can get a replacement for $50 instead of dropping $100

    I know the deductible for new BlackBerries on Sprint is now $100 or will be very very shortly. What is it with Verizon? Have they gone up yet?

    I don't know a lot about buffing....but I have a good feeling buffing a screen like the storms is going to be to difficult...I would either put in a claim or pay for the new screen.

    He knows its not a scratch. Seems like either he is a joker or another Troll looking for attention. Getting any high priced smartphone and not get insurance is totally crazy.

    The storm has a 1 year warranty unless i am mistaken, whereas most verizon phones are 30 days. I didn't buy insurance because of that warranty, and went to a verizon store when my storm started having touch screen problems (no screen proctector, not even oem one) and they replaced it no questions asked.

    My experience with asurion has never been good, yes they have good customer service, and are very quick, but every time i have dealt with them the refurbished phone i got never worked as well as the original and in most cases didn't last longer than 3 months. Honestly i feel like asurion takes the broken phones they receive and wipes the data and re-installs the phones OS. Then they just put on a new case over the old broken internals
