    I have had cell phones for 15 years and never lost or destroyed one. I did spill water on my first Blackberry pearl, but was able to save it.

    Well I left my Evo on the step of my work truck on the 26th and ran over it, and apparently a few other cars did.

    Of course I had to do this with a phone that's mostly sold out, backordered with Asurion etc. It's been only a few days and my old BB Tour feels so lame in comparison.

    So now I'll probably have a Refurb instead. So upsetting.

    Hmmmm if it's under the 30 days and you have insurance can you just return it and walk away?

    I think I just died a little bit.

    At least that's proof for all the iPhone fanboys that the EVO does have a glass screen.

    I wish ! That's only for Manufacture defects :p

    Sprint claimed to be out of stock too. Updated their site yesterday as having them. Best Buys site said "Sold Out" too.

    I have another line of service I could upgrade with, but holding out to see what Asurion gives me.



    Yup. My Screen protector is holding it together. Kick stand and battery in perfect shape. Woohoo :rolleyes:

    Dude - I feel your pain. This was all that remained of my iPhone only a week after I got it. It fell out of my pocket while I was mowing and I ran over it with my garden tractor - I heard a thump, and saw plastic and glass being ejected out from under the mower - poof!

    Looks like you were just trying to fix the screen separation issue.

    See if they will let you keep the battery! :)

    Sucks...but it's only a phone. Even if it is the coolest phone.

    Update (if a little late) July 8th I got my replacement. A Brand new version 3 (had a 2)

    I'm not sure if I got lucky or just killed my Evo at the right time(is there such a thing ?)

    Sent my crushed one in . Maybe next time I'll get that back....lol
