    So this morning on my way to class, I decided to listen to some music. After finding my song, I proceeded to put the phone beside me. After a few seconds I looked down to see it in my cup of water, upside down. The screen is dead, and so is my OG Droid. What a tragedy...:icon_ owned:

    This is the second one of these threads in the past two weeks - so sad - hopefully it was insured and they can offer you a suitable replacement

    Does insurance cover water damage?

    As yet another Droid passes we want to take a moment and remember all those that have died in this horrible way... Thats too bad though hope it was insured.
    Insurance = a Clone or possibly an upgrade.:)

    So, obviously, as any smart Android user would, I have my phone rooted and ROM'd. Should I go through the trouble of flashing the SBF and unrooting even though my screen has yet to come on? There's really no way they can tell, is there? Most Verizon employees use Blackberrys anyway.

    Insurance covers anything - and I don't know if Assurion cares if your phone is rooted, as I said - insurance covers everything...now for warranty purposes concerning VZW and Moto - it makes all the difference, but this is no warranty issue

    Suddenly I feel hopeful! As much as I love my Droid, a Droid 2 would be pretty cool. Most people that get replacements for their Droids these days end up getting a 2, right? 1ghz stock apposed to 1ghz overclocked sounds like a good thing.

    no, but it does cover theft.... dancedroid ..... not that THAT has anything to do with this thread.... just letting people know if their phone is stolen, it's covered.

    Sorry about your phone

    That wasn't to obvious now was it. :rolleyes:

    This seems like a good time to make sure everyone here knows DF does not condone insurance fraud. So lets not even think about it. ;)
