    Hi all. I will be brief here. I messed up my indulge, and happen to have the metro guard insurance. I called in my claim and was told by Asurion that because the indulge is discontinued, I will be getting an Attain for the same deductible.

    99 bucks for this upgrade is a great bargain ;-). Though I obviously don't condone cheating the system, if something did happen to go tragically wrong with your indulge lol... brand new attain for cheap :-D

    Don't ask for an attain, they will offer it. They may offer an esteem if you don't specifically ask for the attain, I don't know.

    Food for thought.

    What do you mean by messed up the indulge? Did it fall? was it a software related issue?

    I want to do this, but I didn't understand you.

    My indulge was physically damaged yes. It has to be physical to use the insurance, otherwise they tell you to send it back to Samsung.

    I thought the deductible on the Indulge was like $120 or $130? Or did they lower it back down to $99 again because it's discontinued?

    Actually, the esteem, connect, indulge and attain all carry $99 dollar deductibles. Here's the link to the metropcs deductible list.

    OMG thank you so much for this info! i recently dropped my galaxy indulge, which i have been wanting to get rid of for a while now (i'm sure we all know why) and cracked the screen. i just read your post and called the insurance number, and what do you know they don't carry the indulge anymore :), offered me a galaxy attain. i talked with them about how i bought it when it was new for 400$ and been a loyal customer, she then put me on hold and told me she was able to upgrade me to the LG CONNECT! IM UBER STOKED considering i was about to drop 200+ on a new phone! i wasn't going to pay the insurance fee's when i could put another hundred or two down and get a better phone!

    You are most welcome, and lucky! I said the same thing you did, but they wouldn't budge on another phone other than the attain. I'm happy though, its a good phone,especially compared to the indulge lol. And dev is finally amping up.
