    So my options are do the rotten thing and keep my droid, deductible and then the money after i sell.
    Or do the right thing and send it back basically rendering my deductible lost thus losing money. o_O
    I hate it when it comes to Ethics/morals..... I have no choice really. For some reason don't want to go to hell I guess. :( losing money sucks though. Ill call VZ later on. :icon_evil::icon_evil::icon_evil:

    You won't get anything back. The phone is on a permanent 'lost-stolen' list and can never be activated as a phone. And don't worry, you can turn it on. Use airplane mode and then turn on wifi and it's now the Droid equivalent if an iTouch! ! Use all the functions; multiple emails, market to download apps & games, mp3 player etc. if you call Asurion, they would say send the phone back; but they have no way of checking the phone exists even if you turn it on. Verizon will never be able to activate the device on the phone network.

    It can be removed from lost/stolen list, and esn restored. So what did they tell you when you called?

    Once the phone is reported lost, and you have the replacement from Asurion, that 'lost now found' phone is permanently on the lost stolen list. The ONLY time you can reactivate it is when you report it lost, do not send off for the insurance claim, and find it: then you can just long on to your My Verizon online and UN-LOSE (lol) it. The phone is now just a Droid version of an iTouch.

    Since the phone is not longer able to make calls or connect to the 3g cellular network, no one cares. You can use the phone on Wifi only and it's now the Droid equivalent of the iTouch!
