So I dropped my phone the other day and now a whole bunch of the pixels are blacked out. However, I notice that the pattern looks different sometimes. That leads me to believe there is a way to fix it. Any ideas? I was thinking of taking it to the Verizon store and saying the pixels died because there is no visible damage. And no I don't have insurance.​

Just call verizon and get them to send you a replacement. They sent me 5 Motorola DROIDs no problem for miscellaneous problems that were obviously my fault. The worst that can happen is they say no.

How long did it usually take for them to send it to you?

I'm pretty sure it was overnight shipping. If it wasn't then it's only 2 days. No costs for anything.

Replacement from asurion (insurance) or Verizon should be overnight shipping for free. My phone took a bath Thursday night. I did the rice trick to no avail and filed a claim Friday morning. Had my replacement phone Saturday morning.
