Hello Verizon world, Up until today you had a very happy customer who actively referred you to anyone who would possibly listen. A member of my family plan has a brand new Galaxy S8 (less than a week old). from the minute he got his phone he has had a case on it, not once has it been dropped, gotten wet etc. He simply put the working phone in his pocket, took it out 5 minutes later, black screen. We have talked to support on how to troubleshoot it. Now where our problem is, we are leaving the country in pretty much exactly 24 hours (vacation to Vietnam). We are on a "corporate/government" plan. We have been told that despite multiple stores having piles of S8's that they would happily exchange for us, they cant because they can't access our plan and they cannot help us. So we call Verizon customer support. They tell us there is nothing we can do and we have to talk to the people we have our plan through (my old University). The problem there is, they are open 8-5 EST and when I have had them replace a phone in the past, they send it in approximately 2 business days. We are driving from Detroit to Chicago at 1 PM EST tomorrow (6/29/2017). Some solutions we would be happy to do to help make this work: - Pay the full cost of the phone at a Verizon store and then be reimbursed once the old non-working phone is returned - Pick up a replacement device anywhere between Detroit and Chicago - Ideally, someone who has access to our plan at Verizon simply makes a call and allows a store to replace our phone Please, I understand we can take our old, barely working S3, but we are going on the trip of a lifetime, bought a ton of S8 accessories and he planned on using this as his primary camera. I've read numerous other similar issues where Verizon's biggest unnamed rival replaced the phone no questions asked. Someone here can help us, please do the right thing Verizon. Thank you for your outstanding customer support in advance, Ryan
