    So for last Week I have been sick and was pumping gas on wed and was on my phone when I started having a coughing fit and next minute I know my phone is slowly falling from my hand landed on it front glass and then had the audacity to flip once on it back and turn so I could see the screen shattered 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬. Thankfully I purchased the accident protection from Google so 99 dollars later and they sent me my replacement. Now it was supposed to be here next latest by Friday didn't come in until today so I was going to call and ***** but when I opened the box they sent a brand new pixel XL 2 so woohoo. But what was really interesting was that when they were replacing it they called it a HTC pixel XL 2.

    Great story with a happy ending!
    Your story makes me feel good that I too purchased the $99 insurance with my Google Store purchase of my Pixel 2 XL 128.

    Forget the fact that it's illegal and not trying to tell you what to do, but are you aware of how dangerous it is to pump gas while on a cellphone? Glad you're getting your phone fixed.

    I see what you you are saying....I'm sure they stock them for Verizon but question is would they issue one. In your case you have the Google insurance so it's sort of irrelevant.

    Didn't even think about the Verizon one I just called the cheaper place I think asurion wanted like 150 for the deductible

    I don't know where you live, but in California its not illegal. Plus the gas pumps exploding due to cell phone usage is an old wives tale that isn't true. They even proved it wrong on an episode of Mythbusters. How about you just stick to the topic at hand rather than berate someone next time.

    It's not an old wives tale....though rare, its been documented and I wasn't berating anyone. It was mentioned in the post so it's not off topic.

    Are you talking about the preferred care? I just paid $129 for it about 2 weeks ago.. did they send you a full replacement device or did they just repair the screen?

    He said brand new from what I can tell. Google seems to send brand new devices for just about everything.....even normal warranty issues. Not sure what happens a year and half into the warranty for defects but I'm quite impressed so far.

    That's pretty cool, I thought I would've had to take it to a ubreakifix here in NYC in the event something like that happened as I believe they're an authorized repair center for google. Obviously a new replacement device is always better.

    Yes preferred care that is what I went through but It was just $99 no taxes and they sent me out a new one. But they did say I was going to get a refurbished but luckily I didn't. I also had the choice of of getting it repaired but it was too long of drive.

    Yes I believe $99 is the deductible, I've yet to use it but purchased the preferred care when I purchased the device two weeks ago for $129.

    To my understanding Google isn't sending out refurbs yet for their pixel 2 devices.

    It's still a good deal, however the Pixel 2s normal warranty was extended to two years shortly after release. I was in a hurry when I pre-ordered mine so I didn't get the warranty. Didn't realize I couldn't add it later.

    The only phone I ever broke was several years ago when I got in to my car and the phone slipped out of my pocket as I sat down and fell to the pavement. I didn't notice it happened and proceeded to back up and smashed that sucker flat! You talk about a cracked screen! And I had full replacement insurance with a carrier at the time and walked in to the store with my flattened phone and they just smiled and handed me a new one. I've always made sure to add replacement insurance to every phone I've purchased since!
