    Hey everyone. If anyone could be of any help it would be most appreciated. I dropped my phone today. It was actually exactly like you would see it in the movies. I pull my phone out of my pocket and it slipped out out of my hand. It was juggling up in the air a few seconds, no joke. But i could not get a solid grip on it.But alas, in the end I missed it and it hit the NYC pavement. The screen shattered down by the launcher pro dock. I've never broken a phone before over all the years so I never purchase insurance. Obviously I cannot get asurion insurance through verizon because it is more than 30 days. I've had the phone for almost a year. Are there any other companies out there that have no restrictions on when you can sign up? I still have another year on my contract so I would prefer to just get a replacement from insurance if possible. Any help would be awesome. thanks everyone.

    The only other insurance provider that comes to mind is SquareTrade.

    Please be advised though that what you are asking falls into something of a grey area. Some could see this as an attempt to defraud an insurance provider since insurance is normally purchased "before" it's needed...

    Yep, technically that's insurance fraud. You need to have insurance before you break it.

    The only advice I can offer, if you have homeowner's insurance or renter's insurance, check with them. Sometimes they will also cover your cell phone.

    Sorry, based on your OP, it sounds like you are trying to find insurance AFTER you damaged your phone and hoping the insurance will offset the loss. This is insurance fraud, something we don't condone.
