    Yep. It happened today. So, I'll have to make an insurance claim. The screen cracked all the way across. It works at the moment. I may keep it a bit before I file my claim. *sigh*

    Oh! Wanted to ask what's best way to back up all my apps, data, files, etc. before swapping phones? I am rooted, mostly so I can tether once a week at a school where there is no wifi.

    Titanium backup pro or my backup root. I use titanium backup pro. Do a batch backup or the individual apps you want to save and it will go to your sd

    Just to add on, titanium will backup apps (app and data), but only data for system files, not the application itself.

    Why not just make a nandroid back up and save it to a pc. Then just flash the back up on your new phone?

    Also a good call. Prob better than my suggestion. I guess it all depends what you want. If it was me i would probably do both the nandroid and the titanium backup, just in case

    I would also suggest a otter box defender. Makes the phone look much larger but I accidently threw my phone across the bedroom when I was straightening my bed cover, straight into my dresser. Thought it was going do be wrecked. Not a scratch even on the otter box.

    She. My name is Amy.

    And no, I am not putting an otter box on it. I pay for insurance so I can be free to use my phone like I want to without fear.

    Why would you throw around a $500 phone like it meant nothing. Unless you had a good bit of money to blow. Just saying preventive measures are always the best. Sorry for suggesting.

    Oh yea and you eventually end up paying for insurance claims o. Mobile devices. If not straight out, little by little through your bill. If you think im full of it look at the statement which you claimed your damages on. But obviously you have the money so have fun.

    I have put cases on phones in the past. I decided that I like my phone better without it. Insurance is worth the extra price to me.

    I didn't throw it, though. It fell face down on asphalt when I got out of the truck. It's the first time it's fallen that way. I've dropped it plenty of other times.

    So putting on a case allows you to throw a $500 phone around?

    I've had a D1, DI, X and a TB, never a case on any and all are still like new.
    IMO it's called be responsible....

    I backed over my Treo once. That was loads of fun. Other than this incident & that one, I have rarely lost/damaged any phone. So, twice in 15 years isn't a bad record.

    Well, I got around to filing my claim tonight. They don't have Xs anymore and Moto isn't making any more. :/ I'm getting an X2. All I really care about is having a big huge screen. And it looks like the screen is the same, so no problems there.

    You are getting a better bargain because you are getting a upgrading dual core phone at the price of your deductible, which I'm sure is a lot cheaper then the discounted upgrade pricing.

    Why am I not using my TB you ask. My droid needs some love too.
