    That's what insurance is for.

    They will make you pay the deductible which used to be $50 but I would bet its more on the Droid.

    Got to love that you could just buy a new droid for less than the deductible cost for a used one.

    ;) BINGO!

    That's one of the reasons why I didn't buy insurance when I bought my Droid in January!

    I figured, if something catastrophic happened to my Droid, I would be able to buy one for around $150 within about 6 months time when prices dropped.... little did I know, the prices are LOWER than that within 3 months of my purchase! :p

    Note the difference between the 2 year contract subsidized cost and the unsubsidized cost however. VZW still shows an unsubsidized cost of $559...

    You can't get those prices with your current contract. About as cheap as you can get is 350.00 on eBay.

    although I always make sure I have the insurance, I dislike it. You get a refurbished phone, and the two times i have used the insurance, the phones still had issues...would be fine if you got a new phone...but ya dont

    Yes, but a refurbished droid is better than no droid at all. :icon_eek:

    You can get a new droid for around 100 bucks, trust me. Plus, it's ridiculous that they give you a referb when the phone has defects anyways. I spent 300 bucks on a refurbished phone that still has issues.

    Sorry but there's no way your buying a new Droid w/o a contract for anything less then $350 unless they fell off the truck haha If you can prove me wrong i would love to see that.

    what about those amazon $20 droids with contract renewal that would be the way to go. I DGAF about being locked into a contract if I want out bad enough I'll pay the termination fee

    Already covered above. You can't buy them unless you're eligible for renewal.

    You can't get a replacement for less than the deductible. I'd love to be proven wrong with a link. "I can get a new one for $100" doesn't mean a thing without backup.
