Well, It finally happened. After having my naked white Lumia 900 since launch, I finally managed to break the screen. The cracks aren't that noticable but it still bugs me. I contacted at&t to see about using insurance to replace it, but turns out it would cost $120 for a new one. I was pretty frustrated because the phone was pretty much free and new customers can have it for a dollar! I'm not due for an upgrade until November 2013.
What do you guys think I should do?

So uh let's do some math. If they allow you an early upgrade you pay a fee. Then you pay activation fee. Then you pay for phone. So when this is over your spent over 120 bux anyways. So what's the issue?

Good point, I didn't really think about all of the fees. But if I'm going to pay $120, I'd rather spend it on a 920 instead of a 900. I just wish people would just give me things.. Why can't I just have everything I want? My life is so hard, guys.

The early upgrade for me was $250, but I got them to waive the fee. You have to call and have them put it in the notes and go to a corporate store.

Same thing happened to me.
I bought a 920, got the early upgrade and never looked back. I loved my 900, but there was NO way I was going to sink $100+ into it to fix the screen when the 920 was right there in the store making bedroom eyes at me. LOL

Haha, still carrying around a cracked phone... Been looking around for 920's on craigslist. I'd rather keep my upgrade because I'm sure there will be a bigger and better Lumia by November 2013.

retail insurance/extended warranty is a crock. Just take care of your stuff and when accidents happen you suck it up for the one time it happened. ie: If you damage one out of every 3 phones, then was it worth getting the insurrance on those 3 phones to pay for the one? If you can't afford $200....seriously you can't afford this level of phone.

I canceled the insurance on my 900 for a couple of reasons. AT&T charges anywhere between $100-$150 for repairs. That's not too far off from used prices. Plus, the price of used 900s continues to drop because the 920 is out. Also, Nokia's 1-year warranty still has several months left. I'd rather have Nokia fix my phone for free than pay AT&T. Finally, if I break the device outside of Nokia's warranty then I'll probably just pay to terminate my contract and re-sign so I can get a 920 on the cheap.
