A few months ago, my mother soaked her Droid ERIS in beer. It would not turn on and we had the Assurion insurance plan set up so we just filed a claim and said we lost the phone (I put the phone in a drawer) and we got a replacement which she is currently using. Now I just happened to pick this thing up and press the power button on it. And for some reason it powered up and is working fine, after being in the drawer for months (the weirdest thing is I'm quite sure the battery would be completely dead since it's been in there, but I guess not). My question is, is there any way that VZ or Assurion will be able to see that I turned on the phone and it is working or track it in any way? I turned off GPS satellites, for what it's worth. Also, it appears this phone might still be activated still (though I don't know if they stay activated if we filed a claim for a new phone). Is there anything I need to do to make sure this thing is de-activated? I was going to just keep it incase her current ERIS ever dies, but is it possible they have this phone blacklisted so it cannot be activated again? BTW if it matters the only reason we said we lost it (rather than saying it was dropped in beer) is b/c we knew for sure the insurance plan covered lost phones, and we didn't want to give the company any chance of finding a loophole not to cover us, we thought it was just easier to say that.
