Re: How to Brick a Titan

Blah blah blah, wah, wah, wah. We all know the truth about the Titan. It WILL die. Its just a matter of time. I am on Titan number 5 and am just waiting for the next problem. There is no doubt in my mind that it will have problems. All you people that are pointing fingers and standing there all righteous are whiners. Just because he is being proactive in preparing for another phone problem you guys jumped all over him.

I had a Titan that I could not find an "actual" problem with but it was amazingly slow, horrible keyboard response time. No amount of new ROMs or flashes fixed it. I intentionally bricked it and returned it to VZW. The fact is that they should have recalled the phone due to its poor performance, screen issues, and overall lack of video drivers.

So, again, wah.

EDIT: For the record, I have Asurion as well but have NEVER used it. I use VZWs warranty replacement.

Re: How to Brick a Titan

This is something like the third post on how to intentionally brick one's PPC in just a few weeks. What gives?

I know, maybe the phone gods are demanding a sacrifice?

Re: How to Brick a Titan

Why do people want to ruin a phone. Claim it lost, then you can keep both...

He's not being proactive about a perceived future failure of his current phone, he's asking what is the best way to commit insurance fraud

Instead of bricking your phone, you should have just called and explained to them the fact that it was "amazingly slow" and had a "horrible keyboard response time" in comparison to other 6800s you've seen/used. You most likely could have gotten a replacement for it without actually having to brick the phone and tell them that it's dead.

i hesitate to call it insurance fraud if the company knows ahat youre doing. a few weeks back an unnamed member called in to inquire about the replacement he would receive for a vogue. told them the vogue was running slow and he was thinking about upgrading to a diamond. he then told the insurance company that if they are replacing vogues with diamonds, then he would go through them and pay $50 instaed of $350. they said they would be sending a ppc 6950 (diamond) if he filed a claim. what do you think he did? did he lie, no. unethical? no. the replacement is your for WHATEVER reason you want. its just risky to use for reasons like this cause you may actually need it for a legitimate replacement. but hey, thats why you get 2 a year.

I tried in two different stores to have them replace it and they denied me. "Does it still make calls?" To which I replied, "Barely." "Then I'm afraid we won't be able to replace it." So, in order for me to have a piece of equipment functioning at normal capacity, I had to force the phone to not make calls.
