    Destroyed Droid

    Right after I upgraded to Froyo, my wife and I got into an argument and she smashed my phone.

    Went to two VZW stores, plea bargaining, to no avail. Didnt expect much, and didnt get much. Dude told me some crazy stuff like "we can add a second line on your phone and get you a $200-some-odd price."

    I'm looking online and Bestbuy has Droid for $99 with "new 2 year contract." I don't plan on going anywhere but verizon anytime soon...so that really does bother me. My question is...is this a true price? Or is new 2 year contract only for new verizon wireless customers?

    Is it is truly $99 for me, an existing verizon customer, how the heck are Best buy able to charge so much less?!?!

    Thanks!

    You should probably contact Verizon. I dont mean to make an example of you, but I dont understand the propensity to verify things they read online with anyone but the retailer making the offer...

    Also, you might want to consider some marriage counseling.

    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.

    Either at a VZW corporate store or at Best Buy, you'll be buying a phone with a 2 year contract. The other thing would be get a new Droid at one year pricing...and GET INSURANCE on it. So, if Wife 1.0 throws the phone and smashes it again, you won't be extending a contract.

    When I read these stories, I know right from the title that the person didn't have insurance so it's easier to say VZW sucks than to say "I know I should have got insurance now I have to pay the price". The O.P. didn't really come out that way, but it would have been much easier to deal with.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    But Verizon does suck. They just happen to have the most robust wireless voice and data network in the US. Besides that they clearly suck dog bollocks in terms of customer service and rapacious pricing models that clearly don't apply to employees. Like you.

    So just what is the policy on replacing an uninsured phone, amigo?
