Need cell phone advice regarding warranties and what not. I have had a Motorola Droid since November of 09. I can upgrade in July. I can actually use an upgrade on a family plan if need be but the phones I want won't be out till early, mid summer (Bionic) so I would really like to avoid that. BUT My Motorola Droid took a spill today. Nothing cracked, but the screen doesn't work. The soft touch buttons light up, and based on memorization of where certain things are on the screen I can still tell it works based on the feedback vibration when I unlock the phone. Just the screen doesn't turn on. I have insurance, called and talked to a guy on the phone. Here's where the situation gets murky. I have two choices apparently. Use my insurance policy thing but that has like a 90 dollar deductible. Not bad but its more then the 50 I've paid before. But the guy on the phone went on to say it could be covered under my extended warranty. He had me check the battery, no water damage. The keyboard is fine. No cracks on the screen. He said that shows no sign of user abuse (he knows I dropped it). He went on to say he will overnight me a new phone and I will have to send back the old one. They will check my phone and make sure there is no user abuse. Great..... then I realized... my phone is rooted. That voids the warranty. He was telling me that if they find user abuse I get charged 300 dollars for the new phone? I don't even have the choice to say "No thanks, here's your new phone back I'll take my broken one back." I actually think he sent the phone. I should probably get it tomorrow, but I am afraid to send my phone in.. Maybe just send them back the new phone if you guys tell me they will discover my root. With the screen broken do you think I am at risk with the phone being rooted? Will they discover that since they can't see the screen? When I get the phone on Monday should I call them and say " Whoops, my old phone started working! I don't need that phone anymore!" and then find a different route? Or do you think I will be cool?
