Dropped my iPhone 5 (not s or c). Had protective glass but it still intact, iPhone glass broke underneath protective glass. Are there still any original iPhone 5 available?

If you have insurance, you can find out here:  Mobile Protection Insurance - Technology Warranty Support | Asurion  If you do, then you pay the deductible and get a replacement iPhone 5.  If there are no more in stock, you might get a 5S.  There is no such thing as a free phone, remember that if you decide to sign up on a new 2 year contract with a 5S and pay $40 a month in access charges vs a device payment plan and $20 a month access fee. If you opt for any trade in offer, just know that your phone is not eligible to trade in.

You won't find an iPhone 5 (not s or c) at Verizon anymore.

 Oh no sorry to see this has happened to your phone. Do you have insurance on the device? If so, call Asurion and file a claim at 888-881-2622. The device can still be purchased directly through us if you do not have coverage. What gb do you have currently?

How does one buy a phone from Verizon that is not available from Verizon, at least one that is not available for purchase on the Verizon sales website?

My thoughts exactly.  I haven't seen a new iP5 in a long time. And even if you could find one new...it'd probably cost more than it's worth.  I'd try eBay or some other place if I wanted just that particular model.

I will be going to the Verizon store tomorrow! Not sure if I have insurance but they can tell me. Also eligible for upgrade. They offer me free upgrade for 5s so assume 5 is free as well. Anyone know what the difference is between the 5s and the original 5? Don't want the 6 cuz it too big for my pocket!

I just purchased an iPhone 5s yesterday (Sunday) on VZW website. So, you can purchase through them.

iPhone 5, NOT 5S.  Read the OP's headline.
