    Wow hate to hear that. The only thing I can think of is to get a insurance replacement.

    If its just a cracked screen they may do a 50 dollar replacement if you don't have the insurance. Good luck.

    That has to be a tough thing to deal with. Insurance or full replacement.

    I dropped mines today after it popped out of my holster and landed face down. I checked for any damages and there were none, thanks to the Innocase II I had on. Even the case itself showed no signs of damage or scuff marks.

    Next time, I better make sure its securely locked in my holster.

    I just dropped my Innocase I protected phone and surprisingly the case popped open and the phone fell out.

    Luckily the drop was from a desk and the floor was carpeted. Hopefully this isn't typical of what I can expect from this case in future drops.

    I believe 30 day replacements fall under defects. Your incident falls under accidental and you will probably need to claim your insurance.

    Damn that sucks. I dread the day that happens to me. I neglected to get the insurance and was outside of the 15 days in which to opt in. Now I have $500 dollars earmarked for if and when I ruin mine.
    So sorry to hear.

    Dropped mine with Innocase I and the case EXPLODED off but there was ZERO damage to my phone. So happy with it.

    Hence my comment about it being Ablative Armor. Not sure if this is a good thing though. Kind of wish it would remain in the case during a drop.

    If you paid with an American Express card, they'll reimburse for damaged or lost items - I believe up to 90 days from purchase.

    i dropped mine from about 3ft in a protective case - now the screen rattles and is loose - same thing happened last week on the first Storm I had - flimsy, flimsy, flimsy
