I won't expect headphones but I was pretty much expecting to get screwed with all the horror stories I had read of used phones with third party parts coming back to people.
Actually verizon forced the insurance on me.
Last year I had five phones that were faulty.
On the month after the manufacturers warranty I had a screen that wouldn't light up on an htc Incredible2.
I elevated the complaint to verizon corporate and they gave me an s3 for the new contract price but said Insurance was mandatory as part of their compromise (wasn't upgrade eligible for 11 months.
So the verizon corporate relations person told me asurion sends new devices back in august when that transaction happened and it seems he was right.
ONE WORD OF CAUTION
If your damage happens over 30 days ago, just tell asurion it happened yesterday or today.
A verizon rep told me that asurion will deny claims with old damage but you can tell them anything you want to as to when it was broken.
Mine broke in January, then sudden death two weeks ago.
This isn't fraud in my eyes. I'm sending the broken one back.
