Well I waited a week or so to see if there was a widespread problem with the phone's screen and have only seen about a dozen posts. Hopefully it was a fluke. Anyway, I submitted an insurance claim today online and I already have a tracking number. If I hadn't just gotten the phone I may have waited to upgrade or if prices went down I've bought a new one. It cost me $99 for the deductible and they are shipping me a brand new Galaxy S3 Blue 32gb phone with free overnight shipping. I think the insurance is about $7 a month and I'll keep it for a year since I can still file one more claim. My next phone I will be full retail with coverage by my credit card since I was grandfathered into unlimited data. Which is a plus since Verizon can no longer block tethering apps from the market. I also get to keep my charger, sim card, battery, and cover. So I guess If i had to buy them new I would be spending almost as much as the deducible. They will also charge me $300 if I don't return the phone in 15 days... Hopefully I don't have a similar problem with the new one.
