    Attention whore here :)

    Anyways in the spirit of not starting pointless threads I had a few questions...

    Earlier today while taking pics of myself and friends i want to edit the pics, like i normally do. Make them a little brighter, black and white and such...

    i went to search for picsay pro and couldn't find it...only picsay

    My first question is

    1)Is picsay pro available in any of your market's(both 2.1 and 1.5 users)

    as well as ringo pro

    2)Does the insurance policy we have on our phones cover like lost or stolen phones. my eris is fine and perfectly okay but i wanted to say it's "stolen" or lost
    and just pay the deductible instead of buying yet a brand new eris for 400-500 bucks(only to spend another 400 or 500 bucks when the nexus one/incredible comes out)

    Idk...I like 2.1 and all but I haven't seen some or even most of the problems some are complaining about(YET) and the delay in pressing talk when calling/answering calls with that vibrate is kind of annoying

    and to be honest, i actually forget i can pinch zoom menus
    so i am thinking i want to go back to...dare i say, 1.5

    last question...

    3. Does my hair look better if i dyed it...lol nvm sorry i'll save that for right forums :)

    anyway, I thank you for all for the future answers and any sarcasm I may get :)

    Thanks,
    a 17 year old Diva who has no sense of reality and seeks attention :)

    *P.S.-Though this contains sarcasm, I was being serious about the first question*

    You do realize that if you report your phone lost/stolen, and it's not really lost/stolen, that's insurance fraud right? Also, you might want to know that the insurance will replace your phone with a REFURBISHED SAME UNIT. You will not be able to pick what you want, and if your device is not available, THEY choose what you get.

    insurance fraud? really? i dont think so i mean the technical definition sure but it is not a felony in this case like it would be if you used your friends medical insurance. it is not actual "insurance fraud". Can we say Drama Queen?

    and they will give you a refurb unless you specify you want a new one. its one of those things they will try to slip by you.

    and the eris is definitely available. ----for now anyway

    No, she is right. It is in fact insurance fraud. How stiff the penalties are or how much trouble someone could get into, I have no idea, but it is fraud.

    Definition: Insurance fraud is any act committed with the intent to fraudulently obtain payment from an insurer. I never said felony. I never said misdemeanor. I said insurance fraud. And it's part of the reason rates are higher than they need to be.

    For the record, I'm all for a nice hearty debate. What I DON'T appreciate is being called a "drama queen". You don't know me, and for you to presume such is out of line.

    Come on, this is a phone not a car. It's not like you're setting your house on fire and claiming the insurance. If you lose the phone, whether or not you lost it on purpose, you lost it. They don't ask questions as to where or how like they do if your car is stolen. Can you imagine being prosecuted because you lost your phone? Felony, 10 - 20 in the big house due to an Eris 2.1 upgrade.

    Definatly insurance fraud. Pretty silly to come on a forum with your real name and say you're gonna do it too.

    Well don't call her a drama queen(trust me , i know how it feels to be attacked or called out in a forum for no big reason)

    But Eric(or anyone) what do i say....Hi, my name is Carmen and I lost my phone....

    I like 2.1 but ehh idk...

    i have these other 2 refurbished erises(if you get 3 refurbished devices in 90 days then you have the option of getting out of that whole phone and getting into a new phone of your choice) that i could use...BUT...I have to return two and i can't return this one

    Not only did I trade for it on craigslist i upgraded the OS to 2.1 and that is non-existent...at least on verizon phones
    lol

    Crime punishments are usually related to the monetary value related to the item in question. In this case the full retail value of a new eris. Prob not a felony but def a misdemeanor.(depending on state laws)

    okay so what if i really do just lose my phone(although technically it wouldn't be lost since i know where i left it) but you get my point..

    i really don't want verizon trying to take me to court over an outdated phone but i don't see how this would be a biggie...

    I tried 2.1...ehhh 1.5 doesn't seem SO BAD now

    i'll probably buy one off ebay...it's a couple of hundred but at least i don't have to pay 500+

    Ha, I couldn't care less. Just playing the devil's advocate. Some peopel seemed to get real worked up over that. I hope they never break any laws, like speeding! omgz. Anywho, I say just wait it out. I don't think it'll be that long before it's released officially. This week I'm sure they'll be working at it hard. Since the "leak" has given them so many more testers and bug finders.

    lol @ people arguing on an internet forum and calling others a drama queen.

    As for just saying your phone was stolen, that kinda sucks for the rest of us. They don't just eat those costs on the phones they're losing. They pass that on to us, the customers. The ETFs went up because people were signing up for data plans, getting a $500 phone for cheap, then cancelling and then selling the phone for a profit. The carriers got ticked, and stiffed the rest of us with a $350 ETF bill. For the sake of what is right, don't dye your hair.

    lol i am not going to dye my hair lmfao...
    that was sasrcasm you obviously didn't read
    the 'I'm back' thread that started this HUGE
    POINTLESS argument

    well i dont want to make any1 pay for my decision to go to 2.1
    I am going to wait it out and pray that it will get better.

    It's not that bad.

    The irony of the situation is...with 1.5 my phone calls connected
    as soon as i hit talk but when I hit end it took forever for it to end the call

    now on 2.1 it takes forever for my phone call to connect when i hit talk but it ends quickly

    shhh!!! lol i am not going to do it.
    Lol you guys got me scared to do it now haha.........

    I'm actually using the pinch zoom now on the homescreens so i guess i'll just deal with it...

    Although I did read in another thread someone said this rom would expire in a few weeks...excuse me if that was sarcasm or a joke....but i hope that wouldn't happen

    I apologize if that was a dumb statement(i am not as tech savvy as Caddy, OTD or some of the others)

    but is it possible that this rom is temporary?
    I wish i could find that thread....

    re: insurance fraud.

    Here are some quotes from this thread:
    2)yes. happened to me once. they will just give you another one.

    call verizon or go to the store and say my phone was stolen?

    kind of figured that. I know it's wrong but i mean how would they actually know if i really lost it or not.

    the stolen i can see but the lost...how would they know

    insurance fraud? really? i dont think so i mean the technical definition sure but it is not a felony in this case like it would be if you used your friends medical insurance. it is not actual "insurance fraud".

    Come on, this is a phone not a car. It's not like you're setting your house on fire and claiming the insurance. If you lose the phone, whether or not you lost it on purpose, you lost it. They don't ask questions as to where or how like they do if your car is stolen. Can you imagine being prosecuted because you lost your phone?



    Wow ... grow up people. It is insurance fraud - no doubt about that one. But more importantly - IT'S JUST WRONG. Remember how your parents used to teach you about the difference between RIGHT AND WRONG?
