good luck I dont think they said it was unbreakable I think what they said was that it was harder to break. 30 times harder than plastic or something like that. Maybe you will get lucky with it.

yea you arent going to get it. not even worth a try honestly. no one else would get the phone replaced for something thats their fault like that, so why should you? sucks, but thats life.

After seeing horror stories like this, I just ponied up the dough and bought coverage through Squaretrade. It was only $99, which isn't bad. For those who preordered, you only have a couple of days of eligibility because you can only get it within 30 days of your purchase.

These threads make me want to hug my cases and SquareTrade. Not that my Barely There case would help in that sort of drop. Ouch!

Good luck!

I hope they laugh you out of the store if you even attempt to get it switched under the unbreakable clause. Show me a link where they specifically state the glass is unbreakable in all circumstances.


Your a ****bag huh? Why not wish the guy luck even if you think their not going to help him?

You must be new to the site. I have warnings and points on my record and I'm proud of it. So yes, I am.
