    The screen (near the menu button) cracked and broke off my Eris exposing the circuit board. I am sure in no time, it will quit working or get worse and since I use my phone for business and pleasure, it has to work all the time. I did not purchase insurance on the Eris. The Eris is about 13 months old and I am on a two year contract.

    I stopped by the Verizon dealer at the mall and the guy told me he could offer me a one year extension plan, sell me the Droid X for 299.99 and I would get a 100.00 rebate.

    I then came home and called Verizon on the phone and the nice lady told me that all she could do was sell me a phone at full retail 529.00 or something with no contract extension discount.

    Dose the local Verizon dealer offer sound like the best bet, or should I try a different approach?

    We have two phones and three numbers (one is an Onstar number) with Verizon and have been with them for about five or six years.

    Thank in advance

    I'd do the deal with the mall dealer in a heartbeat. You won't get any better for a phone that just released and is already back ordered until the 3rd.

    Thanks,

    I wonder why the local dealer would have an option that was not available over the phone or online with Verizon? :confused:

    Exactly that reason, he is a local dealer able to make decisions. The people at the "tech help center" are trained to only offer full retail

    Do your research, the DroidX will be un-rootable and has eFuse installed. eFuse "bricks" the phone if you try to install "unauthorized" ROM's.

    If you like to tinker with your phones, it's probably not a good idea.

    The Eris itself was released in November 2009, your phone is no older then 8 months old.
