    physical damage is not covered by the standard warranty.

    was thinking a few things...one i have this girl at costco whos gonna hook me up but they get like 3 phones every 2 weeks and i cant wait any longer...also my new plan is i called verizon b*tched about the lost data bug(which is true that i have its driving me nuts) and after all the troubleshooting the guy said that after the factory reset we did he will call back ina few hours if it happens again they will send me a new one and i send them the old one...i was gonna beat up the return package and send the phone back n be like what u mean it wasnt broken when i sent it...now two things would they really try to screw me over the broken screen? andd/or i bought it at the verizon in costco would that matter bc when i was troubleshooting the guy said nothing about costco to me just i bought the phone less then 14 days ago

    And we wonder why we get charged so much by wireless providers... It's because they have to CYA for losses due to people like the OP...

    The only thing faulty in this situation are your ethics.

    Your thought process is hilarious. You sound shocked that people disapprove of your plan, why? Don't be upset, you'll get no love from the forum.

    You think your actions don't affect all of us? You and thousands of others doing this exact thing over the years is exactly why carriers charge a premium for devices. It doesn't matter that they're a faceless corporation, you're messing with the economics. You screw them, they screw us. Thanks!

    Lying, cheating, and hustling will only get you so far in life before it bites you. So, good luck with that...

    And just an fyi, the risk isn't worth it. For many marks and missing paint, they won't do much. But for a cracked screen, I can guarantee they'll charge you full retail price, especially if unreported. I doubt they'd care if the box was beat up. I do hear they don't always charge regardless of damage, but remember you only get one chance, and if it backfires, you're out another $700. Best thing would be to sign up for insurance ($8/month or something) pay the deductible (probably $100) and get a new one. If you do this you'll be set and if it happens again all you have to do is take it in, no more fees. Pay $110ish or have $700 withdrawn from your account. Pretty much your main options

    Admitting to return broken merchandise and lie about it is fraud. And these types of discussions are not allowed in this forum.
