Motorola Canada repair services (Futuretel)
Woke up this morning, check texts on my G which works fine, pocket it (front left pocket, screen facing my leg, nothing else in there, loose fitting pants), go to work, check it about an hour later, can't undo my screen lock, touch screen is acting all wonky, I'm not even touching it and I keep seeing wrong input over and over... so I turn it off and back on, but I still can't use the touch controls on the left part of the screen (the left and center row of the lock screen doesn't respond, the right most one does, and the very bottom emergency calls does).
So I carefully inspect my phone, there is not a single mark on the screen, bezel, back-plate... the phone is in pristine condition, I take good care of my electronics (or so I thought). I start checking the screen against a light at various angles and on the bottom, slightly under the lock screen dots, I see a very thin line under the glass but above the screen, starting at one edge and going about halfway across. Like the touch sensor is partly cracked, but nothing else is?
So I was wondering, does this count as physical damage? I don't see how it could. As I said, the phone is pristine and I can't imagine how I could have damaged the touch sensor without leaving a mark on the glass, bezel or screen.
But I'm still worried that Futuretel, which is where the Motorola people are telling me to send the phone will call it physical damage and have me fork over 150$ for a repair I could do myself for 50~60.
And I would do it, had I actually broken my phone... But I didn't, so I don't feel I should pay for this at all.
