    eh gads! Was going to the store, incredible in my hand; then while parking, put the incredible on my lap, completely forgot, and when I stood up to go outside, the dinc fell outta my lap and hit the asphalt!

    no scratches on the screen, but on the top right corner near the earphone, there was a small crack of the case, that isnt noticible. thought I dodged a bullet there

    however, on the corner near the power button, there is a huge crack/indent. oh man, my dinc is scarred and looks ugly

    luckily, i called up verizon and said i just purchased the dinc online but forgot to add insurance, so the lady added it and now im paying $6/mo, so in a couple months i'll make a claim and get a new/crackless phone

    phew!

    at first i thought insurance was for suckers cuz at $6/mo thats $72/year wasted...but for a phone this expensive, and powerful, its worth it now!

    Buying insurance after your accident seems sketchy

    Yeah i added insurance last week a couple days after i got it. I figured since i'd be carrying it alot more than my last phone that you never know. And i want to keep it for the full duration of my contract (2yrs) and do not want to go back to my old dumb phone, so a little extra per month to insure i don't get stuck if something does happen is worth it. I absolutely love this phone and can't imagine being without it, so alittle protection is nessissary imo.

    Its within 30 days so theres nothing stopping him from doing it. I don't have a problem with it, not sure why you do.

    The plan to make a claim after x months in order to get a cosmetically better phone is in fact sketchy.

    I agree, it's probably sketchy and probably a bit dishonest.... That being said, I'd probably do the same thing, so I'm not going to judge.

    ^^^ Well how about this...I won't make a claim unless I drop the phone again and it becomes more than cosmetically damaged? And I promise I won't drop it on purpose.

    I will probably get slammed for saying this but it's your phone, do what you want. If you want a new phone get one.

    OR you could "LOSE" it. (hopefully the battery doesnt get lost with the phone and you then have an extra battery) Hopefully you wont lose it.;)

    I don't care if it's sketchy or not. I'm not going to judge anyway. Perhaps the OP was just trying to warn us not to bypass insurance if we love this phone as he does. I've been on the fence and I think I just got pushed off it. One thing to remember is that not only must you pay $6 / mo but also $89 replacement fee.

    The deductible pricing structure has changed - it is $89 to replace the Incredible.

    Old news. I had a BB pearl that I dropped in a bucket of water. (toilet) I was paying $5 / mo and paid $50 for a new one. The new contracts are $6 / mo and $89 for a new one. At least by me. But that's for smartphones, not LGs or regular phones.

    Yeah I've got the insurance just incase I loose it, or do something stupid or screw my phone up when root becomes available lol, My biggest thing is dropping my phone in water or jumping in pools with my phone still in my pocket , done it a few times. But luckly maybe it's the fact that I'm almost 30 now but it's been about 2years since doing anything to any of my phones.

    technically you can add insurance up to within 30 days of getting the phone so I really wouldnt say youre being dishonest. circumstances just made you realize that you should get insurance, and luckily that fell within the 30 day period.
