    I slipped on the ice and it went flying and landed face down on the pavement. Now the screen won't turn on. That broke a lot easier than I expected. My insurance should cover a replacement, but I'm pretty disappointed.

    Sorry to hear about your phone but that's the funny thing about electronics. Sometimes they can take a real beating and other times if you sneeze on it thats the end of it. The one thing I hate about the insurance is the deductable. $100 for a refurbished phone when I paid less than $37 to get a brand new one but what are you gonna do? They get you everywhere. I wouldn't mind so much if you can go to the Touch, now that would be nice but nah, that would mean making a customer happy. Good luck on your new phone and hopefully you didn't get hurt during the fall. Better your phone than you bones. :D

    I had Sprint insurance but cancelled it when their Surcharges got out of control for my state.

    Please update with how much they charge you for the deductible.

    They didn't charge me anything. I was confused because at first they said there's a $100 deductable for a replacement, but then after unsuccessfully trying to fix it, they said it wouldn't cost me anything.

    I'm not complaining though. I still have to be without a phone though until they order a new one. They said it'll probably be ready tomorrow.

    Actually, i was kind of impressed with my samsung epic. I kept it on my slimpy jacket pocket. I sorta tripped and it rammed on the icy stairs. Had like a tiny tiny scratch on the screen. I was impressed...No system breaks or anything...

    Yeah. I've dropped it before on the cement and it was fine. I guess it must have landed just the right way. I now have my replacement and everything is working smoothly.
