    Brother Cracked screen

    Today my brother dropped his phone down the steps and i guess his "scratch" screen didnt protect if from cracking, the phone dialing out and accepting calls still works but you can barely see the screen, you can only see the left hand side if you push down on the screen a little bit. i tried researching on here what to do but everything i found was over a year or more old, i just bought him the phone like 2 months ago and dont remember if i got the coverage plan, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks guy.
    p.s.
    we have verizon and hes got the q 9m model. (not sure if that matters but just fyi)

    I would do a search for screens as well as call verizon first thing in the morning, this way you can be prepared.

    Im Pretty sure I added it to mine after the first 30 days (first bill had already come in). I was at a store when I added it but they didnt ask to see it.

    Wow 15 days? I got lucky then. I had it added at a verizon store in the mall. The fact the staffing was outsourced might have had something to do with it...

    So you guys think i should have my brother call them and add insurance to his phone? and than go there in like a day or so and tell them that he stepped on it and just deal with the phone for the next day or so?
