    So i decide to go out to a bar on Friday and as i was taking money out of my pocket for the covercharge out comes my phone SMACK screen first on the cement ground. I was praying to all that is holy that i could have one pass but NOPE screen broke to holy hell. I wasnt to mad since i had TEC insurance on it....or so i thought. I forgot that i figuered that i would never drop the phone or anything and save some money. Of course within a month of having my beloved TB it freaking breaks :mad:. So now i have to use the certified preowned replacement program. But of course TB's are not part of the program (or the dreaded iphone). So now i will prob rock the Droid X which i know is a good phone to but DAMN. I will be damned if i pay full price. My weekend was great.

    How much is the insurance on it, if you did get it?

    That's why I'd never skimp on insurance. While you may do everything in your power to not drop it, Murphy is an asshole, and his laws reign supreme.

    Hope you can get another TB sometime!

    Does it still function at all? You could use another Thunderbolt and download the square trade app and put it on your phone. It's $149 for two years of accidental protection, and it doesn't matter if your phone is out of the 30 day purchase window.

    The only thing is idk if it can tell if you are on YOUR thunderbolt or not, but it's worth looking into.

    I believe insurance was like 3.99 a month. Now saying that makes me feel even dumber. 4.00 to replace a phone is not bad at all CRAPSICLES. I might just get the X and i am due for an upgrade next year. I figure by that time the whole 4g thing might be fixed and there might even be a TB 2. Think positive lol. Also if i get the X i can renew my insurance and it will be on my contract for now on.

    iAstonish - Nope dosent work at all. I might try ur idea out though. Thanks for info.

    CyperPitz - Yeah Murphys law is a bitch

    I'm gonna have to change my name too :( lol

    Did you at least get some action after the bar? If not, then your weekend was a total fail.

    Last time i checked there is open enrolment for insurance. Check out your local verizon dealer and they maybe able to add it on there or if your under one month you can still add it on. Sorry to here it good luck

    That seriously sucks. I dedicate one pocket daily to my TB and nothing else goes there except the phone, because I could see myself getting a buck or something and dropping it as well.

    Go to SquareTrade.com and buy insurance on your phone.

    They will most likely just say its too expensive and replace it.

    Do you mean the warranty that costs 99$? Not that its a problem but i dont want to get the wrong one. I see also in their fine print that the plan only works on phones purchased in the last 30 days.

    I went on the TEC insurance website and applied for the insurance but now i have to wait 5-10 business days to see if they will accept me or w/e. So now i have to play the waiting game. The wait is killing me already.
