I wouldn't worry about insurance replacements. Assurion doesn't even check. Are you returning it to Verizon though or doing an insurance claim?
I also wanna know if there is a way to get s-on back or a modified hboot that says it's s-on. I have a front camera issue and am getting a CLNR.

You'll be fine...Just make sure everything else is stock. They don't seem to care about S-Off. Some devices slip through that are already S-OFF'd right out of the box.

Firmware: 1.54.401.10 - Rooted
Kernel: Stock
Recovery: Stock
S-OFF
