    Aftermarket 7135's: Warranteeable? How?

    I worry that, if I buy for instance a 7135 elsewhere, even a new one, it may prove unreliable (have seen a lot of talk about exchanges here) and I will be out of luck with my "aftermarket" phone.

    What options do I have if I buy one and it goes bad?

    When my 6035 went out, the insurance told me they wouldn't do anything because it had not been "damaged". Seems to me when I first signed up for the policy, it also covered nonfunctioning, but then they never put anything in writing.

    So I need a phone. Any suggestions?

    Thanx.

    I bought mine in early March on eBay. I activated it on Verizon and now I notice on my Account Maintenence page that I have a one year warrantee. I'm guessing from what I've read here that they would honor it if something happened. Kim

    BTW: I only paid $80 for it after shipping. Who needs to worry about insurance at that price? Kim

    I can get every part for the phone except what is crucial. That is the mainboard that houses what seems to go bad in these phones. without us having a way to get this mainboard we will soon be out of luck.

    ROM degradation etc.

    SO exactly.. I've got 2 from ebay just this week - a brand new one with no service programming yet and one that was already programmed but it was with the lower grade phoneware and palmware nonetheless it has a new aluminum faceplace and battery cover and has just been upgraded to 29/44 or 44/29 however er peeps write it. NOw it's just like 2 brand new phones.

    Soon all options will run out - I'm studying my second phone now and I can already tear it down completely and rebuild it within 15 minutes. all parts but the mainboard are currently replaceable and I have access. These are not aftermarket parts so they will run out - but not before a few of us get serviced by them.

    "Lower grade phoneware?" "Palmware?" What does that mean?

    If I buy a boxed & sealed phone, is there a way to find out what I'm getting? Didn't know there were grades to any of this. Hard wired in?

    Thanks.
