    Hello gonefishin.

    Your carrier is under no obligation to support your device, other than to allow its activation with their system, if it was not acquired from them, unless a valid warranty or insurance policy was transferred to you in some way by the seller.

    Well, present your case to them.. offer the floor rep a smile and lunch, then you can say you did your best.

    Most likely (if you are activated through verizon) they will exchange it for a fee. The phone technically is only available through them, so they did sell it at some point. If they do help you you will probably have to pay something...

    Bought my phone through BestBuy. Replaced it through Verizon. No problems there.
