    Default Are they friggin kidding me?

    Are they friggin kidding me?-asurion-online-claim-center-.png

    They want to give me an LG Lucid or an LG Spectrum for a damn replacement for my Galaxy Nexus? WTF are they insane? What is the point of having insurance???

    Obviously I selected backorder but this is total BS, when there are clearly still plenty of Verizon Gnex in stock that Asurion can acquire if they need units.

    Has anyone else here gone through this backorder process with Asurion? How long does this take?

    not sure on the time frame for back-order...but i would call them up. that is rediculous.
    i actually just read on another forum how someone is in the same situation, but they gave him a black S3 16GB. I wouldn't settle for a Gingerbread phone...let alone one of those LG phones. (maybe the new LG phone though)

    i would push for the new LG or an S3 or at the VERY least a RAZR MAXX

    Thanks for the info. I don't know how I feel about going to a Non-Nexus phone though. I love my Nexus enough to turn down even a Galaxy S3!!! Am I crazy?

    Nope. Although the black S3 is sexy, I am more than happy with my Nexus running 4.2.1. The software is what makes me want a new phone and since the Galaxy Nexus is first in line, then I am happy. Even if I have to wait a little bit longer until some one make a flashable ROM for the Verizon version.

    not in the least bit. it would be tough for me to give up my nexus, but if insurance threw me a black S3, it would be very hard to turn down. Root and ROM it with CM10 and i would be a happy camper. its has better specs across the board....my only issue is with that silly home button. but i am pretty sure you can add on screen buttons to the S3 if you want to.

    Come on! They all have bluetooth, video capture and a camera. They MUST be comparable.

    I personally know two people who were able to get S3's in exchange for their Nexus devices. Ask for a supervisor and try to be professional and polite during your pleading for a reasonable device exchange.

    My Galaxy Nexus was acting up Monday morning. I went to the Verizon store and they couldn't fix it.Said they would send me another one. Got a replacement Tuesday afternoon by Fedex

    Well I guess Asurion likes to roil people up because at 7pm last night I received an e-mail already telling me the Galaxy Nexus was available. I had to log in and pay the $99 deductible and enter shipping info. Phone has already been shipped overnight and should be here today. I can't really complain about the service since it's been great.

    I'm just thinking how cost effective it really is to have insurance nowadays, especially for the Gnex? The deductible is $99 and I pay around $7 per month. I guess it's still reasonable considering I'd have to pay around $250 for a used one on eBay and have to take the chance that it's banned by Verizon or is in poor condition. Verizon is still smoking crack and is selling them for $550 new.

    Still something to think about...

    Wow tracking says it was delivered this morning 9am. WTF? How could it leave Tennessee last night at 10:30pm and be in RI by 9am? That's fast....

    When I cracked my screen and got my replacement it was on backorder but for less than a day. Seems they don't keep a lot in stock but they get it in quickly when they do. Mine was new.

    $84 a year and $99 to replace is definitely better than $550. I hope it's a good one, when I had to replace my OG Droid, Assurion sent me a nice one.

    Sent from the red headed stepchild of the Nexii.
