Asurion claim

I knew this day will happen... I broke my TP2, the screen is shot. I blame my dog but lets not go there.

I have VZW and the Asurion people are offering me the Samsung Omnia 2 for 89 dollars.

I been doing lots of research on the phone and I do see some good and some bad.

Bad, The lack of good roms and lack of RAM speed.

Good, 8gb of memory better camera...

My VZW 2 year upgrade is not in till Nov 11th 2011.

I want some input on what you think about the Omnia 2.
Any feedback will help

thanks.

I'd take it but I don't use the physical keyboard much on my TP2.
Too bad they don't have any more TP2s.

You could get the Omnia2 and sell it or trade it for a used Verizon TP2.

Re: Asurion claim

Not that it's much help but I had the original Omnia and it was a great phone. There is also potential other ROM's at other sites, not just here, not that I'm telling you to go elsewhere for it, but there is that option. I personally would grab it for $89, it doesn't mean you're signing up for a new contract, and then try to trade/sell it for a TP2 like HD said.

Re: Asurion claim

Thanks guys for the help... I will think about the selling aspect of it. But I will give it try and see how I would like it. I did find some ROMS but much to choose from. I will miss the Energy's ROMS the most. Ether way Its been fun hanging out in the TP2 forum.

Re: Asurion claim

under the category of curiosity killed the cat, has anyone tried saying that since the TP2 is a world phone with a keyboard that either the Droid 2 Global or Droid Pro should be eligible replacements?

You make a very good point. I should of thought about that before I committed to the Omnia 2.

Re: Asurion claim

no way they'd do that.(replace tp2 with new R2D2s) and by the way its conditional tense so its would instead of will. i thought the omnia 2 had the same specs as the tp2 (almost)

Re: Asurion claim

They tried to give me a different phone saying they had no more TP2s left. I told them no. 2 days later I had a refurb TP2.
