    I got my M8 from tmo and am on that plan where I will own it in the end. But we are about to switch carriers this weekend because we're simply tired of tmo's bull and also want to try and save some money on our plan.

    My phone has been locking up and just hasn't been acting right for a little while now and I called tmo to have it replaced. They are working on replacing it under the factory warranty, but the problem is they don't show it as coming from them! (yet another reason we need to switch) I don't know how long this is going to take for them to replace this phone.

    So if we do switch carriers, will I still be able to get my m8 replaced under the warranty? I was thinking I could sell it once I get my new phone, but I won't be able to get anything for a defective phone.

    Are you ending the T-mobile contract legally and amicably, like the account is paid up-to-date and paying the ETF? If the warranty is still current, and the phone is actually yours, then yes, I think it should still be under warranty. But might be best to check with T-mobile or HTC first though.

    I can't remember the name of the deal, but it's the one where you pay a certain amount a month and at the end of a year or two you own the phone. We're about 6 months away from paying it off. So when we switch we're going to have to pay the balance owed on the phone. But sprint will pay us what tmo charges us when we switch.
