    What exactly does this mean in terms of getting a new phone? I've searched and seen people say that bricking your phone will "void it's warranty", but I can't really find any more info. Does this mean that I will have to purchase a brand new phone from verizon at the non-contract price? Or will the 6.99 I pay to Asurion every month allow me to pay the deductible and get a new phone. Suppose I were to brick my phone, and then "accidentally" run over it with my car, would I be able to file an insurance claim then? Thanks for any info you can give me.

    If you bricked your phone, honestly you could say anything because they wouldn't know what happened to it cause it wouldn't work if you bricked it. But, since it is almoe=st impossible to brick a Droid, you're referring to the fact that rooting will void your warranty. And it will void it, which means you would have no coverage on the phone and Verizon wouldn't replace it for you. But, since the only way this would happen is if they knew about it being rooted, then you're good. You can always unroot if you would ever have to take it in to get it serviced....

    un-rooting will bring your Droid back into the state covered under warranty.

    Intentionally running over your phone for an insurance claim is called insurance fraud.

    Cool thanks for the info. And I would never intentionally drive over my phone. I said if I accidentally ran over my phone could I file an insurance claim. Thanks again

    The insurance covers accidents. You didn't/wouldn't have bricked your phone on purpose? Isn't that an accident?

    if you have asurion, you will get a new phone and all that good stuff BUT they make you return the old broken phone when you get the new one in the mail. you have like 15 days to return it and if you dont return the old one they charge you anything up to 300$! i know this cause my phone fell in the sink yesterday.. and i had to do all the good stuff today. so in all that if you brick your phone and you have to return it than there gona find out and see that you bricked it and will void your warranty
