Asurion, Verizon's official smartphone insurance provider, has been at the center of attention as of late. Ever since Verizon announced the Droid 1 was to be discontinued, the question arose: Would Asurion be able to replace a Droid 1 with a Droid 1? And the short answer was, no. On Asurion's website, the only replacement options available for the Droid 1 was the Droid Eris, LG Ally, and Droid Devour. And who wants one of those, honestly?
That was until today. Droid-Life got word that Asurion plans to provide Droid Xs and Incredibles at some point this summer as replacements for the Droid 1. Although Asurion cannot guarantee either at this point, the company plans to eventually have both the Droid X and Incredible in limited supply. This was likely in response to a slew of complaints and insurance cancellations by Droid 1 customers. So, the moral of the story, think twice before you cancel that insurance; if your aging Droid 1 kicks the bucket, you may be in for a nice surprise.
