HTC Incredible :: Did Void My Warranty?

Sep 5, 2010

I updated my phone to the 2.2 through a link i found on a thread here. There was no disclaimer on the link saying this will void my warranty, so i went ahead with it. No that I am doing more research, it seems the I might have voided my warranty due to my impatience :/

Can anyone confirm or deny this? If it DOES void my warranty, how does verizon know that I did a downloaded update rather than an OTA update.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: De-brand Warranty Void?

Nov 10, 2010

I briefly spoke to SE UK on the facebook page and asked about de-branding the phone, I was told that was would void my warranty but the only explanation given was that 'thisis classed as tampering. It is also not something we would recommend as this could damage your handset'

I followed up with a couple more questions but have recieved no reply so thought I would bring it over here instead.

First up, de-branding the phone does not involve rooting it so the process of rooting can't be the reason for the void.

I want to know why updating the phone with an official, SE approved update voids the warranty?

I also want to know why Sony themselves don't provide an option of just updating the phone with the generic update instead of making us wait for the networks to release it?

Or is this all simply about money, are Vodafone etc paying SE a healthy amount to not let us de-brand and remove the useless unused app's that they put on?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: When Update To The 2.1 My Warranty Is Void

Oct 28, 2010

My carrier told me my phone comes with the 1 yr warranty from Sony, but once I update with the 2.1 my warranty is void. Even though it is Sony who is putting it out. They said it voids it because that is not the way the phone was sold. I still have 11 1/2 months left on this warranty so I am not sure what to do.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Says My Warranty Is Void By Installing Third Party Software

Feb 9, 2010

I am sorta shocked, only for the fact that he freakd out that I had installed a new custom boot screen and told him that rooting doesn't neccessarily remove anything sprint puts on the phone. I guess more shocked that he knew what it was.

Regardless, if I own the phone, I am going to do what ever hat I want to it even if it voids the warranty because that shouldn't be an issue.

Motorola Droid :: Rooting With Macbook - Worth The Warranty Void?

Apr 18, 2010

Ok. First things first, I am simply in love with my Droid. I learn new things everyday. For example, yesterday i took a picture on a trip, and on the ride home, went to look at the picture in my gallery, and under the picture it read Dayton, Ohio. It knew where I took the picture!

Anyways enough of my droid love, i've got some questions for you droid gurus.

1. I want to root my phone so badly. Im afraid of it bricking though. But the thing is, ive done a lot of research, and it seems bricking hardly ever happens. I want to overclock and i really want some kick ass ROMS! Should i do on pc or my pro?

2. My screen, when closed, when you tap on the screen near the lower left corner, the screen taps. Like the screen is loose. I wanna take it to verizon. But i wanna root. But i want my warranty still usable.

HTC Incredible :: Best Buy Warranty Process

Jul 26, 2010

can't take the phantom swipes any longer. i bought the $10/month warranty through best buy when i pre-ordered, so i'm going to take it in and get a new phone. has anyone been through this process? from what i understand they take my old incredible and i will have a new one mailed to me. i have a few questions:am i safe in assuming i will have my phone in hand in 2 weeks? my plan is to back up internal and sd cards to memory and then factory wiping it, any other suggestions?will it be any use bothering them for a free pack of screen protectors? it wouldn't be a big deal but they are relatively expensive, and now i need to go buy a new pack because the phone they sold me was defective? What kind of a temporary phone can i expect from best buy? do they have guidelines, or is it just any smartphone they have available?

HTC Incredible : Scratch On Screen Voids Warranty?

Aug 6, 2010

I've been lurking while waiting for my Incredible to come in the mail- it's finally here,

I went to my local Verizon store in CT today to get a case for my phone. The sales assistant tried to push me into getting a screen protector too, but I'd rather buy them online so I declined. She kind of snootily replied that if I end up scratching the screen because I don't have a protector, it's considered physical damage and that voids the warranty on the phone. Does this make any sense to you guys?

Android :: Getting Variable Out Of Public Void

Apr 21, 2010

I have this code:
hubSpinner.setOnItemSelectedListener(new OnItemSelectedListener() {
public void onItemSelected(AdapterView<?> parentView,
View selectedItemView, int position, long id) {
final MediaPlayer mp2 = MediaPlayer.create(Textbox.this, R.raw.hero);
mp2.start(); } public void onNothingSelected(AdapterView<?> parentView) {
} } );

(The code basically runs when a new item is selected of a spinner and then plays a song, which later will be a variable based on what was picked, but I'm fine as it is for now). And I want to be able to use 'mp2' out of this public void, (I want a button which pauses it). How can I do this?

Android :: Returning A Variable In A Public Void?

Apr 20, 2010

I'm a bit new to programming Android App's, however I have come across a problem, I can't find a way to make global variables -unlike other coding like php or VB.NET, are global variables possible? If not can someone find a way (and if possible implement the way into the code I will provide below) to get a value from the variable 'songtoplay' so I can use in another Public Void...

Here is the code:.............

Basically, it gets the value from the Spinner 'hubSpinner' and displays it in a Toast. I then want it to return a value for string variable 'songtoplay' -or find a way to make it global or useable in another Public Void, (Which is will a button, -loading the song to be played)

Android :: Void Activity Destruction (orientation Or During Incoming Phone Call)

Aug 3, 2009

I have a requirement where I have to read/parse some data from the server(using HTTPConnection) and then display it on to the screen. To avoid ANR issue I used AsyncTask to perform the above. Now in order to avoid application crash in case the activity gets destroyed(either by OS or if orientation changes or say on any incoming call-->where user stays on the phone for long and for some reason OS destroys/recreates the activity). Currently, I hols the reference of AsyncTask in my activity and then provide a callback(the activity itself) to AsyncTask so that I can pos back message to activity(like closing progress dialog box).In order to avoid memory leaks on onPause I nullify this activity reference in AsyncTask.Before onPause I save the AsyncTask instance using onSaveInstanceState method but I have to use putSerializable for that. I have read on the forums that serialization method is slow, so my question is should I use parcelable approach(and whether the converting AsyncTask to parcelable will be same as creating any other object parcelable). or both these approaches are totally wrong i.e...............

HTC Hero :: Regarding Warranty And Various Regional Versions

Sep 21, 2009

I am very interested in purchasing a Hero but am not sure if I should wait till I move to Taiwan in a few months or do it while I am in the US.How does the purchase location of HTC devices affect their warranty? Does rooting really void your warranty? Can't it be restored before returning to HTC if it's bootable? Some places (like Amazon) have the "international version with no warranty. What's that about?Can someone please explain the different "versions" that are available. How do the languages and input methods differ? What about app availability in the different regions? In Taiwan, the hero is 20000 TWD = $617 USD from the HTC store. It's about $580 shipped from Expansys.I'd prefer to buy it while in the US because of the ability to receive extended buyer protection via an AMEX or other credit card. But if it breaks, I wanna take it to HTC in Taiwan. Am I dreaming?

HTC Hero :: Repairs Under Warranty - Charges

Aug 2, 2010

I am sending my HTC Hero (Orange UK) back to HTC for them to tinker with it as it has had absolutely terrible reception for pretty much the entire time that i have owned it.

I had been waiting with each new OS to see if the problem would be fixed. The problem is that the signal fluctuates wildly without manipulating the phone, it will cut out whilst i am on the phone and just resting it on a table it will lose signal for perhaps a few minutes each half hour.

Spoke to Orange on the phone and they said to send it in for repairs to HTC.

Now, my phone has a two cosmetic bumps on it - one graze on the top corner and a tiny gouge on the bottom corner. These are purely cosmetic and I am sure that these have nothing to do with the problem, as it existed before those accidents.

I guess what I am looking for are your experiences with HTC repairs - are they the sort of firm who look for any excuse to claim that you caused the damage and void your warranty?

If they do claim that the signal problem is my fault, is the burden on me to prove that I did not cause it, or them to prove that I did?

HTC Droid Eris :: Voids Manufacturer's Warranty?

May 3, 2010

first off, let me say "Hi". got my Eris about 3 months ago and been lurking ever since . i've enjoyed reading just about every single page of all the stickied threads -fascinating stuff. you all seem pretty Knowledgeable (OTD, Caddyman, etc) and look forward to reading you thoughts on this. Here's the scenario:i have an Eris and my girlfriend has an EnV2 she will soon be upgrading to the Incredible. she suggested we swap phones once she gets the Inc, since she doesn't really need all that extra fancy stuff -i reluctantly agreed so yesterday, just for kicks, i brought this up to a store tech and she said that wouldn't be a problem, but once the phone comes off the original account it was activated on, the manufacturer voids the 1-year warranty ergo i wouldn't have a warranty on the Inc, nor would she have one on the Eris post swap. does this sound crazy, or is it just me? secondly, would it really be as simple as i imagine? just swapping phones & switching ESN's on our respective accounts once her Inc is activated?

HTC Eris :: Root Rolled Back And Warranty

Apr 21, 2010

So you know how when you root, you void your warranty. But then they got developers that had 2.1 root rolled back to stock 1.5. Does that mean that the voided warranty is no longer void? Or is it still void?

Nexus :: Headphone Jack / Warranty Repair

Mar 5, 2010

My wife has been complaining about music switching randomly while she's playing it through the headphone jack in her car. I mean, it's so bad that if you touch the N1 it will skip to another song. I finally figured out that something us up with the headphone jack. Loose I guess? Plugged in my N1 and it was just fine. No skipping. SO, now I've got to do something that I just really can't stand going though, and that is getting warranty repair or replacement. Anyone know how long it takes for a repair? I really don't want to hear her complain for a week when she doesn't have her phone. If they go the route of sending me a new one, I know I'll have to pony up my debit card number but do they actually "hold" the funds? As in not available to me? Or do they just take the number in case you don't send the dysfunctional one back?

HTC Desire :: Screen Has Cracked - Covered By Warranty

Sep 23, 2010

Last night i noticed a thin crack on my screen about an inch long. You cant feel the scratch on the outside. This morning the screen had gone really dull an cloudy and is basically fudged, you can hardly make anything out. I hav'nt dropped it so can only think there must have been some sort of pressure on it.

My question is what are my options?
I am about 5 months into my contract with vodafone and dont have insurance with them.

Would this be covered by the warranty?

My other option is obviously to pay for a repair if thats possible?

Or maybe claim it on my house insurance.

Samsung Captivate :: Couple Of Rooting & Warranty Questions

Nov 14, 2010

I just have a couple of questions:

1. What is the risk of bricking my device really? Has anyone here ever had a problem with it before?

2. Does rooting absolutely void your warranty no matter what?

3. If it does void your warranty, can they turn you down if your phone breaks for something unrelated to rooting? For example if I root my phone now, and then 4 months later I drop it and it breaks will they fix it?

4. How do they know if you rooted your phone? If I brick it accidentally is there any way for them to know that it was rooted if I don't tell them? I mean it could have just as easily been a manufacturing error, they wouldn't know until they've restored it to it's original state.
