    Here's the scoop:

    I've got a replacement Pre coming tomorrow or the next. I've patched and tweaked my phone a lot, customizing since I got it on launch day. Just a few days ago, took a trip to the Dr. and have left it stock since.

    Seeing as how I'm going to be replacing a phone here soon, I've decided that it's probably time to test out some stuff that *might* be hazardous to the hardware. Any suggestions?

    So your looking to inflict intentional damage to the device before sending it to the insurance company?

    Top of my head....shove it up your **** and sick your finger into a light socket. That should do it.

    Hardly...I just find the notion of intentionally damaging equipment that you are supposed to send back to the insurance company in good faith to be deplorable. I was a teenager once too but come on.

    Have you personally test the light socket trick?
    Does it supercharge the phone?

    And in regards to that suggestion, I likewise tell BOTH of those companies for replacing my otherwise perfect phone with something that also had problems - but has been *fixed* - to put their important parts in a bucket of water. I don't think it's right that they replace the phone with a refurbished one that may or not be in worse condition than my previous one. It SHOULD be brand-spanking new, not pseudo-new.

    And I'm not sending it to Palm insurance. SPRINT insurance - it's their problem. They take it and it goes into cell phone oblivion with the rest of the busted phones with cracked housing. It's never being used again.

    I walk out of the store with my partially new phone - that's the deal. I wasn't asking for knee-jerk negative comments like that - very childish, I must say.

    It's probably not about intentionally damaging the equipment as you are thinking. I'm just referring to patches or tweaks that people are scared to try or are curious about, and would be interested in a firsthand account of how it works by someone with a phone that really has nothing to lose.

    You feel that Sprint has done wrong by you so you want to destroy the phone before you give it back to them? If I'm wrong just tell me. If not I feel that is a poor position for you to take.

    I don't feel anyone has done me wrong like that, and my goal is not to intentionally DESTROY my phone per say, but rather try some stuff on it that I (or others) have been hesitant to try for fear of bricking or hurting their phone.

    It's more about advancing the line on what can safely be done on a phone. Do you consider alpha and beta testers to be destroying phones? Just a thought.

    Oh, I see your point now. I think that's cool to try. No biggie in that case IMO.
