    I usually get a text in a week or so. So maybe they did catch on but I am not going to pay if they charge my account for retail. I'll just tell them to send the phone back to me and I'll buy a phone on Craigslist. But thanks for the heads up. Hopefully everything goes well. When you looked at the phone you couldn't tell there wasn't any water damage to it. I let it dry out for 3 days. So I dunno.

    OK...simple. take it back and get a new one. If they charge you for new one, argue the marketing of the ' nano coating'. If they still denied, contact bbb for help, still denied, call lawyer and sue for false advertising.

    It should be able to withstand a cup on the pocket from what all hype is about the freaking nano thingy. Love how so many people cry about fraud and false claims. What you people think they'd do? They will try to cover their ass...you should try to cover yours.

    Maybe you should offer to pay the legal costs on this one. Serious? I am in the insurance industry. Do you know why your rates keep going up every year? Yup, a good chunk is because of fraudulent insurance claims.

    Well my new phone arrives tomorrow. So after reading these post, Talking to Friends and family, and speaking to verizon about how this will all go down I have decided the risk is as follows.

    1)Send in phone, verizon sees no problem and I get a new phone at zero dollars (awesome)
    2)send in phone, verizon detects water damage some way that I dont know about, charges me 600+(hold crap)
    3)call insurance and claim water damage, Pay deductable of 99 bucks and get a new phone.

    Odds are verizon would not be able to tell. Based on my inspection and higher then average knowledge of electronics and circuitry I think it would fly, but based on the small deductable and knowing there is no chance for me to be screwed i think i'll just file the insurance claim and be done with it. Im to old to be sitting around worrying about this kinda stuff and pulling scams. big red is one big rip off so i would not feel bad in the least but its just not worth the hassle IMO. thanks to all for your comments.

    If it was mine..yup. but its not, so that'd be up to him.
    No fraud here though. Legit claim. So insurance would be used as it was intended to be used. This could also be warranty due to the so called nano coating failing to do as states.

    Insurance is for sure to be used when paid for, but not abused as most end up doing. This nano coating is a repellent to attempt to make water roll off the device, it does not make the phone waterproof. These phones are not sealed up water tight like other waterproof products, so if a large amount of water is introduced it can find it's way into the circuitry.

    Attachment 49736

    This example is on P2i's website, showing indeed the material is designed to make whatever it is applied to water REPELLENT. Bottom line even if the insurance would have covered water damage, the warranty was voided when the back was pulled off the device. Again if the insurance company is made aware of all the factors in the situation and they still want to cover it then great, if not take the loss.
