    Well last night I went to see Band Of Horse, it was a great concert btw. Upon leaving I got challenged to a "heel-click" off by my girlfriend. Not wanting to ceed victory I gave it my best and my phone flew out of my pocket and cracked on the sidewalk. Im not too upset I have insurance via sprint (assurant or something like that)...they seem really nice, they said they would send me a new Evo overnight all I had to do was pay my deductible (100). Unfortuantely this morning I cut my hand pretty badly picking up the phone which I thought was funny...so if you shatter your screen be careful!

    Screen protector is needed to keep the screen from breaking into sharp pieces and cutting you. And what is a heel-click?

    I shattered my screen 3 days after getting my replacement that I had lost. The screen comes apart really easily, I have definitely cut my hand on it.

    Question, Can I claim my phone again on insurance? Do they have a limit on replacements?

    Evo can also be used as a deadly weapon. Just shatter the screen.

    Justs reminds me of a possible drunken bar scene. Instead of breaking a bottle or beer, the drunk hits the evo on the counter and points it at the other. Oh shame...

    So im driving to work. I made a quick call and put my phone on my lap. i get to work, forget that my evo is on my lap, and get out of my car. *crash* I freeze, with my phone laying on the pavement face down. Im thinking "No no. I have a screen protector on. It would never do that.." I lift it up, and there it was. My screen was completely shattered. Luckily everything still works fine. But im going into sprint tomorrow to get a replacement. I cant believe this, I have had this evo since 7am on release day, with not one problem, EVER. I know that with my luck the replacement evo i get will have all the defects you could imagine. But, yea, thats my horror story. Hopefully I dont get stuck with a refurb..​

    Sorry about your situation, can't imagine how upset I would be [dropped my pre on day one and was furious with myself]. On the bright side, you made it 6 months and in another 6 months you can upgrade to the next new device [Premier status... correct me if I'm wrong]. Hopefully your refurb won't have any issues [pretty sure all replacements are refurb] and will work like a champ as long as you have it.

    Wow sorry to hear that... I had the same situation happen with my Incredible but I was lucky enough to kind of kick it as it was falling to soften the impact, now she has two little scratches on the screen but its better than completely being shattered

    Good luck getting your new EVO :)

    They may be able to replace just the screen instead if the entire device

    If it is any consolation, I got my refurb today and find it as good as my new one I had to send back.
