    They may offer you a refurb to buy at a reduced cost... but generally they won't replace without insurance.

    I'd def give *611 a call and see if there's any options. They are pushing out all the "Droid" branded phones at free or nearly free (w/ new 2yrs) right now so maybe they'll be able to offer you a reduced (from retail) price.

    There's always craigslist and ebay. :(

    Oh man, sorry to hear that.
    I'm sure vzw will work with you on an exchange. Although not sure about them giving you a new phone but most likely a refurb.
    How did the drop happen btw?

    Even with Gorilla glass if you drop your phone the wrong way or it hits the ground the wrong way there's a chance it can break. Sorry to hear that happened to you. I can't tell you how many time's I'ved dropped mine and never had anything happen.

    As Martin says you might get lucky and get a sympathetic person to help you out but that's why people carry insurance on their phone. Good luck to you. If you have some good news or even if it's not please let us know.

    Where are you guys getting that the X has gorilla glass? Gorilla glass doesn't mention it on their website as one of the products that has it.


    Nevermind. They even state that not all products are listed.

    You're going to want to head over to MyDroidWorld and located the 2.3.340 Full SBF before you do anything with verizon.

    Do you think I could still enroll with a broken screen. Thanks for posting too. :)

    I agree on the slivers they've been rough on my hands
