    I think the program is a bad idea. My hinge broke after 4-5 months, and they replaced it free of charge. I didnt' need insurance.

    The replacement program is probably most useful for situations that occur outside ofthe warranty period - I took mine in (bought in August) due to the power connection on the bottom not working, and they sent me a new one. Didn't need the replacement thing, but I was still under warranty...

    Now why would you say a thing like that? When you travel as much as I do it's just par for the course to lose things. Leave it on a plane, in an another companies office for the LAN Admin to find and keep. Fraud is what Lobbyiest due in government.

    To answer your question, I used the replacement program twice and both times my phone was upgraded. I do not remember what the first upgrade was but the 2nd was a StartTAC dual band to the Tri-band in color. So I figure with all the talk of new TREO's I might get lucky again.

    I plan to dump my Treo after the warranty period runs out. Of course that when my Sprint contract runs out as well and I can get a new discoutn for signing up with them or someone else.

    I used to think it was a great idea. But its a rip off, because they only replace your phone in only two incidents. At the second time you lose/break your phone, they cancel your insurance, so their liability is extremely limited, and even more less if you consider you have to pay $35.00 for each incident.

    Sorry but for $48 dollars a year, I find that to be a rip off because normally you use the phone for two or three years you end up paying $144 dollars, and if you add $70 thats about 20% of the liability (if you consider the phone to be worth $500, which nowadays is much less)!
