    I got a pretty decent crack in my eris screen last night. And we DO have the insurance I believe. If my belief is correct and i decide to go in and do something about it, what will the guys at Verizon do? Do I get an eris still or is EOL gonna screw me or help me or anything? Its really just sort of a visual screw up - I haven't touched the functional screen YET so I'm not in much of a hurry thus far.

    Thanks!

    P.S. I guess I haven't looked to hard recently - is there any functional 2.2 for eris here or on the way?

    The rumors of EOL have been greatly exaggerated... There is no such thing.

    This statement has been Verified by Verizon

    I think it would be a refurbished Eris.

    Damn I was hoping for like a better phone since I heard about that EOL stuff. Well any news on that 2.2? That would be huge for me. Only complaint I have with the eris is the lag.

    I think in the case of the cracked screen, he would have to use his official "insurance" and not his warranty. In that case, it would be a new unit, but he'd have to pay the $50 deductible.

    2.2 sounds like it isn't coming to Eris.

    That may be true. I think it's a matter of bringing the phone to VZW and finding out what kind of customer service represetative you draw.

    This could be fun, perhaps I walk in and be super nice until I find out what they say then I can start 'shopping' for a rep haha. Well I'll wait awhile anyway since my phone still functions fine. Thanks for the replies!

    i wish verizon handled insurance differently. it would be nice to be able to just get a credit for the broken phone and pay the difference for a new phone (such as the incredible or droid 2 perhaps ;)) but then there would be those people that intentionally break their phone and mess it up for the rest of us honest people. :/ *sigh*

    It's a $90 deductible, actually.
