I think that I am finally going to go naked with my EVO. Everytime I go to BestBuy and see the Evo that they have on display, I marvel how good it feels without a case. I already have insurance on it through BestBuy with no deductible. I'm a little nervous about it, but I am wondering why I am spending so much money on protecting my phone when I also have insurance. It should probably be one or the other.
Is that definitive though? That a loaner phone is provided?
Back when my wife's EVO got wet, I contemplated doing up there and filing a claim for a replacement. That was until my wife's EVO came back to life. When I'd talked to Best Buy, they asked me if I had another Sprint phone available to use in the meantime and that if I didn't, I'd be SOL without a phone for at the very least two weeks.
BB offers loaners on a case by case basis and it usually requires a $100-200 dollar hold charge on your credit card. Short answer is, as of now if you break your EVO be prepared to be without it for about a month be it through Asurion or BB.
I've been naked pretty much since June 4th... won't even put a screen protector on it. I picked up a white evo from best buy on the 7th of July...and same thing. I have the case..and some screen protectors, but nothing feels as good as the phone naked.
I'm actually carrying insurance from best but and sprint... although im not sure why. LOL
I really, really want to use mine without a case. But it's too easy to ding up the phone. I already got a small nick in it before I got the HTC case. Maybe I care too much but I don't want it falling to pieces. Unlike the Pre I intend to keep the EVO for a while.
I want to carry around my EVO without a case so bad but can't do it because of the potential for dust to get between the gap around the screen. There are already several posts on this forum from users that got considerable amount of dust under the screen.
I am not a fan of cases..why make the phone larger then it is. I carry mine in my pocket 24/7 since release date and its fine. No screen protector..although I did do the carbon fiber skin on the back and a screen protector for the camera lens...but nothing around it.
I'm thinking more and more I want to take the gel skin that I picked up off. It feels so different without it and doesn't get stuck in my pocket when I pull it out. I have a screen protector though, I don't know if I could ever handle not having one on the phone.
I saw a few posted that there was a week wait with Asurion. I put a claim in Saturday and had my replacement Evo (black) by that Wednesday. This was a few weeks ago and Sprint paid half my deductible as well (long story).
I use the one piece snap on case from Sprint, with the faux white leather on the back. It works pretty well, and doesn't add a ton of bulk. My is broken on the bottom corner, so I ordered a case from DayDeal
