How to Brick a Titan

I want to know haw to brick my Titan. I want to be able to take it in to Sprint and try to talk them into replacing it with a TP but I cannot fidn any problems with my Titan. I have tried everything I know to brick it and none of it seems to work.

I know I was able to do this with my PPC-6700 pretty easy and Sprint could never figure out how to get it fixed. Thats how I got upgraded to a Titan in the first place.

Why not just buy the Touch Pro and sell your 6800 on eBay or Craigslist, instead of trying to go about getting one so unethically?

Re: How to Brick a Titan

Right now Sprint is only giving out refurbished Moguls. The only way to get a Touch Pro is thru Asurion which handles physical damage or lost and stolen. So, you can go to Asurion and tell them the phone is lost so you don't have to bother with sending it back or you can say it's damaged. Either way you will have to pay them $100 deductible.

And yes, we all know this is insurance fraud because he is trying to intentionally do something to his phone. I'm just letting him know his options since he obviously is too lazy to search, lol.

Re: How to Brick a Titan

Why doesn't any have any ethics anymore. Don't commit fraud. ust either buy it or get a replacement upgrade because of a natural failure.

The worst part is, after committing the insurance fraud. They will be the first to complain about why the insurance cost is so high.

Re: How to Brick a Titan

Keir333 is right on.
One reason most things cost so much is that companies have to cover the cost of all the fraud that occurs--who pays for that? They don't have magic "Money for Fraud" Trees out back--they pass that on to all of us. I'd be interested in knowing how much of the cost for a shiny new TP (or any other) phone would cost if everyone were honest. You want Sprint, VZ and whoever to be straight up with you??? Goes both ways.

Re: How to Brick a Titan

Don't damage the phone, don't "lose" it either. Just call asurion, say its not working right and pay the deductible to get your new phone. Insurane fraud? WTFE! You pay almost 100 dollars a year for insurance, plus the 100 dollar deductible. Thing is, insurance companies MAKE money. Thay make money becuase they don't do as many replacements that are theoretically possible (ie everyone with insurance, filing a claim). However, if a lot of people do this, it will inevitibyl lead to higher insurance premiums. But, you get 2 repacemnents a year for a reason...

Re: How to Brick a Titan

Didn't Sprint make an $8.4 billion dollar profit last year? I think they will be ok. They choose to pass on whatever costs to the consumer so they can keep making billions. But yeah, this is insurance fraud and is wrong.
