    X fell in toilet.. Water damage indicator is still good.

    The question is.. Would verizon swap it out as a messed up phone since the water damage indicator did not get wet? i really dont want to pay the deductible with asurion.
    Also, is there any way they can tell the phone is rooted? the phone turns on but the screen is black and you cant see anything? I know if its rooted it voids my warranty. What do you guys think?
    please dont flame me for trying this. money is tight.

    I know rooting ur phone does void your phone. But, I did read on a thread that theres a program to un root them so VZ doesnt detect it. As far as water damage goes u can try sending it but they might charge u if they do find water evidence or make u pay the $50. This is just from my experience anyway, with Vz for six yrs.

    Do the right thing. Its not Verizon or Motorola's fault, don't make them pay for it. Not to mention, Verizon may not be able to tell if its rooted but, Motorola can...and they reserve the right to charge you full retail for the phone if they do. I understand money being tight but, I'd rather fork out the $89 deductible than almost $600 for being dishonest.

    That too! There are also moisture indicators on the inside of the device as well (can't get to them without breaking the warranty sticker). I know it sucks because I've been there too...I no longer take my phone in the bathroom!
    Motorola can read what programming is on their phones so, they can tell...without the screen displaying anything at all.

    You gonna pay for it if he got caught?? I'd recommend against telling other members to be dishonest.
