White LED of death on a rooted phone--can I get a warranty/insurance replacement?
I plugged my rooted Razr Maxx into a car charger the other day, and it zapped it. I tried plugging it into multiple other chargers and it would not turn on at all. Plugging into a PC USB port gave me the white LED on the face of the phone. Researching this finding led me to believe the phone is toast. Verizon store rep couldn't get the thing to turn on either, so she had a replacement shipped to me. Phone was under both warranty and covered by the insurance plan.
I haven't sent back the dead phone. It's rooted and flashed to the leaked 215 version, and since it won't come on, I can't go back to stock.
Here's my question: Can anyone guess whether a phone with this problem (won't come on, white LED of death) can be ID'ed by Verizon as an altered phone? What are my chances of getting a nasty letter and billed 'up to $500' for sending back an altered phone? Will they be able to tell?
Also, if they do bill me, can I demand they send back the bricked phone?
Thanks in advance.
