    Seeing how the dhd isn't being made anymore, if I were to claim on insurance / whatever, like give it to Orange with a problem.... Would I be getting a Sensation?

    I heard of someone being offered the choice between a Sensation and one of the Sony handsets... think it would depend on who you spoke to (be that Orange or your insurer - assuming that you don't have insurance from Orange)

    There are issues with it... But nothing overly bad, and i can sorta live with em.
    The question is really for information and reference...

    Edit : or in case things start going bad... Already getting a lot of restarts etc

    Going back to what DURX was saying, what kind of Sony could i be looking at?

    There is no telling if you would get a different device. Just because the DHD is no longer being manufactured doesn't mean that the insurance agency doesn't have some still in their stock.

    Intentionally damaging your phone so that you can make an insurance claim is insurance fraud. Not saying that's what you're posting this for, but we see threads asking things like this every so often, and it's usually because people are weighing the pros and cons.

    If your phone's not broken, then you wouldn't be looking at anything... it really would be down to who it was you were speaking to/what they had if your phone was broken though.

    I really don't know what it was that was offered... I just remember someone saying that they had sent their phone off for a repair and, when they couldn't repair it for him, he was offered the choice of a Sensation or something from Sony.

    Ok, thanks everyone. I'm not gonna damage anything on purpose, I just wanted to know..
    Also so i can stop buying accessories which won't fit a different device.
    But I'll see how it runs : random reboots plus sometimes not charging may get worse... And then ill update you guys on what happens

    Just had a look on the Orange website : of course the DHD isn't there, but neither are any other devices but the One X, S and desire C....

    Question is, if they don't have any more DHD's, would they have Sensations? If not, could I get a One S :-D

    Ah, I see. My apologies for insinuating anything worse. It's just not guaranteed you will get anything but a DHD, however.

    You could probably talk to your carrier and see if they would help you out, as well.

    They might not have any new DHDs for sale but they keep refurbished stock I believe.

    Oh :-( would've liked to get a shiny new one s....
    But a friend was given a Sensation as a replacement so not all is lost :p
    Although, that was on Vodafone.......

    Edit ; fyi just had another random reboot, so I'm beginning to think this is a problem... WiFi is getting worse every day as well :-(

    Your problem sounds like general wear and tear. Not many insurance policies protect you against wear and tear.

    I have copied and passed this thread on to my brother-in-law who is a loss adjuster for all the major phone companies to see what he says.
