    Yesterday I was setting up the tarp for my in-laws pool when I was walking backwards and didn't realize the step was behind me, I went in fully clothed Eris and all.

    My replacement will be here Tuesday from Asurion, I was told out is a brand new one and not a refurb.

    I did get mine working last night. Got all the water out and opened it up, took the screen and all out, I think I will just use it as a back up if something like this happens again.

    Aren't you supposed to send your old one back when you get a replacement? Otherwise you get charged full retail price for the phone.

    Yes, indeed you must return the original phone to the insurer. I have had two Asurion replacements when I had my old Treo 650/700 phones, each time they included an RMA label and instructions to ship broken phone (minus battery) back within 14 days or face full charge for price of a new phone.

    what if you lose it or gets stolen and you have the Asurion insurance

    do they still replace it.

    yes, they will replace it but you are likely to have to provide a police report of some sort to prove it is stolen. Here is a page from the my Asurion brochure telling about lost property.

    Well I got my replacement refurb insurance phone Tuesday. Problem is, that phone was obviously taken apart. Light coming thru from around the screen, trackball loose. So I called Asurion yesterday to inform them about it and asked for a replacement for my replacement, and they were very happy to accommodate me. I asked for a brand new Eris and that is exactly what I got. Brand new in an Eris box, everything sealed and wrapped. :) I have it charging up now and will start it up tonight. It will be interesting to know if it will have 1.5 or 2.1. My guess, 1.5.
