    Hello Everyone!

    My Evo V died this past Thursday. My husband and I decided to ditch Virgin Mobile and signed up for T-Mobile. We got a new Samsung Galaxy S3 Unlocked.

    Thank You for all of the support given.

    Sincerely,

    Richard Sequeira Firouzeh.

    Good luck with the new phone, don't forget to get a warranty replacement for your evo, you can always sell it or just hang on to it but part of the price was for the warranty so you might as well go for it. :p

    I would do this. Do you think this will be an issue since the account is now closed.

    Absolutely not, the phone comes with the warranty, even if it was never activated on Virgins service. :p

    So all warranty claims for the first year are handled by VM and not HTC?

    Yeah, all phones that VM sells goes through them for warranty claims, that's why I never understood getting the insurance for $5 a month plus a $100 deductible. :rolleyes:

    That covers damage...and perhaps loss, or even theft. At least, with Asurion and Sprint, those are also covered.

    However, with this being a $130 phone now, paying $100 deductible and $5/mo is actually a bad idea.

    I know, my point being if you really need or want insurance you're much better off with Best Buys black tie protection, it's a one time payment of $35 and if the phone is no longer available you can apply the full purchase price to a different phone, plus you get a brand new phone right in the store instead of waiting for a refurb. :p

    This sounds very interesting lol. Once I get ready to move on with this phone I'm going for either the nexus 4 or the next nexus if it's out.

    I went with the black tie myself. It covers everything but loss.
    I can't imagine putting a $100 deductible on a $130 phone.
    If I was under contract, it would make more sense, but that's exactly why I don't do contracts anymore. :D

    Not exactly, HTC offered a repair if I sent the dead mobile.

    I still think that you'll have an easier time by going through Virgin for the warranty claim, I know for a fact that being rooted isn't a problem with them. :p

    Before my HTC Evo died, I backed up text messages and they were saved to my microsd, is there a way to transfer them to my new phone?

    Move the SD card over to the new phone.
