    No need to unroot as it's not covered unless you have insurance.

    yes you have to file a claim through assurion and pay the $50 or $80 or $90 deductable and they will have you phone to you the next day. you just send back your broken droid in the padded envelope they provide

    I would unroot just to be on the safe side before you take it to verizon and try to negotiate some deal. You don't want them to notice and then screw you over.

    edit: they beat me to it

    unless you are with in your 30 day period I would not even bother with Verizon... even then YOU BROKE your phone why should Verizon take the hit for your carelessness with the precious.
    go here Asurion - Your Technology Protection Company type in your info , pay the deductable, and get a new phone the next day. a cracked screen DOES qualify for a damaged DROID. DO NOT DROP IT IN WATER thats useless and you can't use the phone in the mean time until your replacement shows up
