    With asurion warranty does the replacement phone come with a new sd card? Reason I ask is my phone went for a swim and after that I cannot get my sd card to be recognized by any device, computer,other phones, and mp3 players. Thanks

    If they will replace your phone for dumping it in water, why wouldn't they replace your sdcard?

    Well I didn't know if they classified it as non covered equipment and didn't replace it or if I need to specify that I need one when I call.

    BTW: has anyone used the Asurion service yet? When my son and I got our droids I was sure to inquire about and buy insurance for them since they are expensive phones. When he dropped his and I called to inquire about using the insurance I was informed that it would be $90 to actually get a replacement...does this sound correct?

    My understanding was it was $70.

    GUESS WHAT! If you're an existing customer (previously using Asurion Insurance with a more dumb phone) and you get the droid, your pricing doesn't change. We're paying $5.99 for TEC and have a $50 still even though we have the DROID...we verified it on our bill (which has only been charging us $5.99 since we've had this phone) and verified it by Asurion's online site.

    We also had a replacement through Asurion recently, they only charged $50 for DROID but the rep commented it was "unusual".

    My friend, who also has the DROID, is experiencing the EXACT SAME PRICING and she previously had LG enV2.
