Just go ***** to verizon, that always seems to work with this peice of shit phone lol. Say you got a replacement and the damn thing is having issues already within a month. BTW you could force the thing into a bootloop or I could send a build that gets it stuck at the M to say its having hardware issuessixstringedmatt said:Hey guys,
So apparently Asurion doesn't cover buttons being depressed/stuck. First, anyone have luck with third-party shops being able to fix this? I am only a month in on this Asurion replacement and I no longer have a warranty, and I don't want to pay the deductible. Any idea how successful they are in fixing these issues?
On the other hand, I am going to look into rerouting the function of a power button to a different button altogether. Since I boot into recovery, bootloader, etc. would this work still? For instance, if my camera button is power, would I hit power and volume buttons to get into Bootloader? I realize I can just pull the battery out and put it back in too, but this is for convenience.
You can stop and help here or continue reading if you want to submit your 2 cents on other issues.
UNRELATED: I am eligible for an upgrade soon. I am going to hold on to this thing as long as I can, but the HTC Vigor (Incredible HD) is around the corner and has sparked my interest. Anyone in the similar boat? I still can't believe Asurion would ASSUME buttons getting stuck is a user-related issue. I am honest in saying the phone hasn't been abused, I can't see how they automatically write off the manufacturer and couldn't possibly fathom its their fault. Talked to a supervisor about it, got nowhere too. Bleh.
