    THink right now you have a 50/50 chance of one or the other. Just luck of the draw. some people say they got a new phone and others have gotten a refurb one.

    Most likely a refurb at this stage of the game. Usually within like the first month of a phone being out you'll get a new one, at this point prob a refurb. But that's not a terrible thing, they're all tested and worked on to make sure everything is working correctly. So I wouldn't worry to much at all.

    I would say that it was lost, beacuse if its stolen you have to go and get (pay) for a police report.

    I actually had to replace my thunderbolt a few weeks who, and I did get a brand new phone from asurion. Not saying that they don't have any refurbished ones in stock, but they may not have many. It went pretty quick and didn't take long for me to get it. Good luck.

    I lost a phone like 2 years ago and had to get a police report and it didnt cost me anything. Y would it cost u money to get a report? The pain in the arse part was getting in touch with a cop.

    Anyways i wouldnt tell them that it was stolen either it just inherits more steps to get ur phone back.

    It's not so much the cost of getting the report. Its the pain to go down to the police station (esp. in NYC they are overworked) and filling out a whole report.

    BTW Thor what is the status of your bolt? Did the insurance company replace it?
