Got any pics? (wife or the phone)
Dude, 5 bucks a month extra and you'd only be paying $80 for a brand new one...I NEVER buy new electronics without getting some kind of insurance or extended warranty, it is SO worth it...sorry to be all "I told you so," but..well...I told you so. What'd she smash it with just out of curiousity? What were you guys fighting about?
You should take the cost of the replacement out of her allowance. She does have an allowance, right?

It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.
I'm 24 years old, and have been buying electronics on my own since I was 12, and I've never purchased an extended warranty. I could do the math and go back and see how much money I've saved, but I'd feel bad rubbing it in your face.
People are different, and there's no blanket correct answer to anything involving electronics....
Yea same, never bought insurance, never needed it, when my voyager broke 3 times, glass after I sat on it then dropped it.. anyways.. I took it to a store each time and paid $50 and got a refurb, 1st 2 times I didnt pay anything but that may have been under the warranty.. but it is an individual decision, if you feel better with it, get it. Some peoples lifestyles are different and they may do things that puts extra risk to their phone, ie: certain jobs, activities etc etc.. so its whatever you feel better with
