    I must have had cereal on the mind as I actually poured a bowl after I shut down. So its the same principle. If someone has no respect for life, why would you respect theirs. Ill wrestle with the moral issue. In the meantime, does anyone have any insight on the probability of them becoming aware just through the rebate?

    Raisin Bran Crunch all the way!

    Either way, I think you are entitled to your rebate. You purchased the phone and deserve your rebate.

    The fact that you broke your phone, are mad because Verizon won't help you and want to "get back at them" for that is a whole other story.

    So let me get this strait. You ordered a phone and had them bill it to your account then on the next bill it was credited back and your wondering if you send in the rebate if theyll 1) honor the rebate and 2) If they do will they catch on and try to charge you back for the rebate??

    He didn't pay for the phone. He is not entitled to anything.

    I know that to most I'm sounding like a horses a$$, but I'm sick of "situational ethics". It's ok to steal if the company from whom you steal is "bad". And you get to define "bad". In this case the op defines "bad" as a company that is only interested in profits. Let me say this real loud: PROFITS ARE NOT BAD, THEY ARE GOOD. Verizon is not a bad company and the op does not have a right or entitlement to steal from them.

    I don't think I am mad at them. I was just explaining my "pettiness" to Bayou. I broke my phone and I accept it is my fault. I am just questioning whether to submit the rebate or not. It is a $100 rebate for risking getting charged for the phone again. What if I didn't catch the credit back to my account? I would have submitted the rebate anyway and wouldn't have this question. Again, just wondering the probability of them becoming aware of the credit to my account while honoring the rebate. However, your opinions are welcome.

    I don't think I can be swayed away from sticking it to big business. All big business's take advantage where they can through loopholes or idiotic policy just to get ahead. So I will continue to take advantage of them as they take advantage of others.

    I think what people are saying is that its completely up to you whether or not you want to steal. If your looking for someone to encourage you to "stick it to Verizon" and steal I dont think youll find that here, (with the exception of that one person). I mean you got lucky and got your phone for free dont you think you already "stuck it to Verizon"??

    I'm not looking for justification at all. Someone else brought up the moral issue. I just want to know if anyone has any knowledge about their rebate system.

    Yes you probably would get the rebate. That doesnt mean your not stealing. And whether or not they would catch up to you about it is niether here nor there. Karma my friend karma.

    Thanks for the replies guys. So if they will probably catch the mistake eventually, should I submit the rebate before it is too late?

    Is the rebate still good? They do have a expiration date on them.
    Might as well get the rebate if you can that way you'll have part of the cost of the phone when they finally do charge you for it.
