    It's a generally accepted practice that you can not pay premiums, break something, then add insurance and make the insurance company foot the bill? Do you understand what insurance is?

    wow..

    Verizon offers a 14 day grace period correct?

    therefore if anything happens within that 14 day grace period you are fine... you buy the phone, don't get insurance and two days later you run it over with your car you then think to yourself... maybe I should have got the insurance... that is why there is a grace period, to allow you to add the insurance. I'm pretty sure after the 14 days you cannot add insurance and you're boned if this happens.

    so though it may technically be fraud, which btw

    it's more likely that asurion realized they will get more customers by allowing said 14 day grace period.

    at least it's not like this http://www.cellular-news.com/story/31423.php

    Very weird. The verizon reps obviously didn't want anything to do with you. My case in point...

    I had bought a new droid x and my wify was all pissed at me for spending the night with my "friends". When I got home she was pissed off at me she took a hammer and smashed my phone to bits. Its only been 3 days since I had it. I went back to verizon and they switched it out for a new one no problems. Who ever you went to suck balls. Have you tried another store?

    That Idk but my opinion I thank they definitely use something different then Moto. I've still have not scratched my OG Droid or Bionic but I know on the Nexus they used "fortified" glass and it scratched easy and now people talking about scratching their S3s so easily and them breaking randomly. Idk, this ain't a favor for Moto I just thank their using something different.

    So is gorilla glass a company or is it a type a glass several companies make?

    I am pretty sure its only made by corning ands its a registered trademark so nobody else can use the name. Of course, I have been wrong before..

    Keep in mind that this a "second generation" gorilla glass. It supposedly has some flex to it and is half as thin as standard generation one gorilla glass.

    One thing to understand the S3 glass is not totally flat. I believe that it has a slight curve and that could be an issue
    that they did not count on!

    The Nexus has more of a curve then anything but I guess if this new generation isn't as thick it could be a issue. Sounds like gorilla glass 2 needs to go down the road lol

    U have a point but thin or thick, that doesn't explain the easier to scratch.

    I hope people who have experienced random cracking will contact both Verizon and Samsung and file a complaint. If this is a manufacturer defect, more than one or two people need to publicize this to have them really make an effort to see what's going on. It could be a bad batch of glass, or a bad design that is causing this to occur. I hope someone looks into this.

    In the meantime, those who have been going "b@lls out" with their devices might want to reconsider their stance on SPs and cases...

    I have never purchased insurance for my tablets. I bought one at best buy and they are forever trying to sell you insurance and/or a protection plan of some kind. To avoid the long explanation, I simply ask "how long do I have to purchase it?" Whatever they tell me 15 or 30 days, and they always say "you have to bring the device back in so we can inspect it before you can buy insurance."
