    from my understanding, i can send in a broken phone and get a replacement for free through the warranty. i have been wanting to sbf to froyo and install rooted GB, but my phone is a POS and will not sbf, i always get an error and ive tried all of the option, but noting works. (please don't help me with sbf'ing, i know what im doing) so im trying to find a way to "break" my phone so that I can send it into verizon and get another one for free (warranty). so i need to figure out a way to break it without voiding the warranty. ive already tried shorting it out with a 9 volt, but all its done is turned the phone off. anyone know of a way to make the phone inoperable or bad enough so that i can get a free replacement?

    Warranty only covers manufacturer defects FYI.

    That would probably be considered fraud and is not looked upon highly here.

    First thought when I read this. I don't like seeing these kinds of posts.

    Sell yours, buy a new one. Done and done. Please keep stuff like this out of here.

    This is why Verizon is starting to look closely at phones being turned in for warranty issues. Also why Assurion is hiking up their prices. Do some research on you phone. I spent a good two months reading posts on all of the forums and it paid off. Knowledge is power, but a little knowledge is dangerous.
