    Ok so I dropped my nexus perfectly flat on the front and cracked the screen laterally/midline. I Have verizon and insurance on the phone. How do I approach the verizon gate keepers about getting it replaced. Do I just go in and say its cracked and hope they dont hassle me and replace it or say it was stolen or something alone those lines. Also I have had some random reboots which isn't a big issue but might help the selling point of getting a new replacement. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

    If you have insurance it's covered, no need to lie about what happened - you'll end up paying $100 for a replacement and assurion should have it to you within two days :)

    I had to replace a phone before, the first hours were kinda stressful until I realized things were going to work out easily :)

    I feel so much better. From my moto droid on I will never get a smart/superphone without ins. Too costly of a mistake plus I cant have nice things.

    Exactly why insurance is an option:)

    I personally don't have it, but if for some reason there's a day where I wish I had it, I'll get it from then on.

    Now let me pose this. I have the incipio case and thinking otterbox defender. I dont see too much of a difference but you think there is any stock in it protecting the phone better?

    I have the otterbox and it's tough but I think a fall at the right angle could be disastrous with any case

    I think you only have a month to get insurance.

    If you pay for insurance why would you need to lie about what happened to your phone?

    I think the Defender could hold up to just about anything. I've watched some youtube drop tests and man, this thing is tough!
