I resisted temptation 3 times now to respond to this but I guess I just have too...
First the easy part, the rebate. Try what I'm going to do. You don't get to use the phone til the rebate form is in the mail. That's one way to ensure it gets done quickly.
Now, the Other Part... <sigh>
I realize it's your phone and you can do whatever you want with it but WHY would you "accidentally on purpose" destroy a phone if it was in working order? There are several charities that will take older phones and recycle them.
Better yet, sometimes even Ebay works in mysterious ways. I just sold my 2 Droid Xs. They were bought by a lady in Colorado who is a single Mom with not a lot of disposable income and her 2 kids phones were stolen out of her car. She got two decent replacement phones for Cheap and I got a good chunk of $ to go towards my new Spirit.
If nothing else you could have kept it for a back-up in case you accidentally on purpose destroyed your New phone.
