    This is a topic about how Asurion will no longer issue replacement Droids to Droid owners, and instead downgrade them to either the Eris or Devour (or Incredible if you're "lucky")

    So, why is this important to you? Because your phone may be next. Here's my post in that topic:

    Also; yes, I posted this in the Eris forum. Felt you guys needed to know this info too.

    ally is all around, however, how long can you say that with it nearly having a guarantee that it wont receive OTA updates.

    well the devour is in the same boat as far as the ota updates are concerned, at least with the ally it seems they have an active community trying to bring custom roms to the device, so lg may not update it but the hacking community sure will.

    I presume you're in England (the law is different in Scotland and the US). Although the insurance company has given an undertaking, this is not a contract so they are not bound by it. However, the Financial Markets and Services Act requires insurance companies to treat their customers fairly and you have grounds for complaint.I suggest you write to them pointing out what has happened. That way, it will be dealt with by the insurance company and not by someone in a call centre on a different continent.
