    Hopefully this becomes something that forces a recall, I've seen a few posts about this happening however I've not seen other phones with issues like this.

    This is specifically why i buy from best buy, their insurance is awesome and would cover this in a heartbeat. Sure list and stolen isn't, but everything else and no deductible. For ten a month, i was sold.

    I don't see how it's stupid it may just be a phone but it's still 600$ and if everyone who broke there phone did this they would be out of business or phone insurance will cost even more than it does now. and they do give u a certain amount of time to add the insurance but if it's broke then that's a different story.. And yes I believe the OP that it just broke glass does have defects but that's a samsung problem not a insurance problem!

    Last I heard you could not file a claim for 45 days after placing the device under warranty unless you got it when you purchased the phone.

    I had a battery issue with my S3. I called and they told me that I had to pay for a new one which the price was 283$ and when they got the phone back the would pit the money back into my account. Did you try calling Verizon or did you just go into the store. I was get a lot more help when I call them. And if I do not get the answer that I am looking for I hang up and try again. Verizon will work with you.

    I'm not so sure it's fraud....it's a generally accepted practice that you can "add insurance now and make a claim". Obviously they have some sort of system worked out to accommodate this. Maybe they realize they will keep insurance after this good faith effort, maybe Verizon eats this cost from asurion....one things for sure, this happens all the time, and if fraud took place they either don't care or already have it worked out.

    It's a generally accepted practice that you can not pay premiums, break something, then add insurance and make the insurance company foot the bill? Do you understand what insurance is?

    wow..

    in·sur·ance/inˈSHo͝orəns/


    Noun:
    1. A practice by which a company provides a guarantee of compensation for specified loss, damage, illness, or death in return for payment...
    2. The business of providing such an arrangement.

    Verizon offers a 14 day grace period correct?

    Definition for grace period:

    Web definitions:
    A grace period is a time past the deadline for an obligation during which a late penalty that would have been imposed is waived. ....

    therefore if anything happens within that 14 day grace period you are fine... you buy the phone, don't get insurance and two days later you run it over with your car you then think to yourself... maybe I should have got the insurance... that is why there is a grace period, to allow you to add the insurance. I'm pretty sure after the 14 days you cannot add insurance and you're boned if this happens.

    so though it may technically be fraud, which btw

    fraud/frôd/


    Noun:
    1. Wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.
    2. A person or thing intended to deceive others, typically by unjustifiably claiming or being credited with accomplishments or qualities.

    it's more likely that asurion realized they will get more customers by allowing said 14 day grace period.

    at least it's not like this http://www.cellular-news.com/story/31423.php

    Very weird. The verizon reps obviously didn't want anything to do with you. My case in point...

    I had bought a new droid x and my wify was all pissed at me for spending the night with my "friends". When I got home she was pissed off at me she took a hammer and smashed my phone to bits. Its only been 3 days since I had it. I went back to verizon and they switched it out for a new one no problems. Who ever you went to suck balls. Have you tried another store?

    That Idk but my opinion I thank they definitely use something different then Moto. I've still have not scratched my OG Droid or Bionic but I know on the Nexus they used "fortified" glass and it scratched easy and now people talking about scratching their S3s so easily and them breaking randomly. Idk, this ain't a favor for Moto I just thank their using something different.

    So is gorilla glass a company or is it a type a glass several companies make?
