Firstly, I spent FIVE years with a Samsung clamshell with the red dot turned red after the first week! I am one of those people who create a 'personal rainstorm' just walking across the street in clear 40 degree weather. Add to that working in attics in Texas summers, and I guess I had a 'miracle' phone. The ONE time it quit working was when I got caught on a roof in a drenching storm with four bolts left to tighten...2 hours on the defroster in the truck and all was hunky-dory! I just don't believe the hype.
Secondly, when I acquired the HTC Inspire 4G I'm using now, I made sure (BEFORE I signed) to READ the warranty and what it covered for the measly monthly pittance they charge...it's covered. I take --very-- good care of my tools, and this is just another tool. Albeit a tool that will cost me $300-500 to replace IF I don't !
I'm not saying accidents can't happen, that's what I pay the insurance for, but I don't take my phone for granted!!!!
