Default Warranty Replacement, Brand new phone! What to ship back?

Ok so in the past I've always gotten refurb's and was instructed to just send the phone back. Well as we all know the Note 3 comes with a few accessories that are not required to be sent back "battery, backdoor, stylus".. Well I have had one replacement already and it was a refurb that came in the white box and I sent my old one back while retaining my old hardware, no biggie.. Well this time around they sent me a brand new phone (i called and bitched about 4.4.2 and it's issues) but I'm kind of at a stalemate with the return process.. Do I keep the new battery, backdoor, charger, usb cable, and stylus and just send my old phone by itself back..? That is what the instructions say to do but that would leave me with 2 of everything, and I don't want to get billed for keeping that stuff, but I'd also like to have a backup of everything lol.. I think the instructions think I was sent a refurb but I'm just inquiring to see what others have done in this situation.. Thanks..!!

The same thing happened to me with my Note 1. I called and they told me to keep everything. Made my conscience feel much better.

My conscience is telling me that for the hassle they should just let me keep it since it's pennys to them lol.. But I'll call anyways just because I'd hate to be billed for non compliance or something haha..

All they want back is the phone. Send the phone. Nothing else.
Note 3 is dead

There... I helped by editing your statement. See above.

Anywayz... on a serious note, sometimes that stuff gets misplaced or lost, since they are going to move your broken phone from bench to bench. Or they may just have a box sitting with no name on it... and soon as they get yours they put your name on the box and walla, a replacement.

I used to have a conscience about this kinda stuff but I learned as I got older they have millions of the accessories and would just send you one for the heck of it, if you called and asked nicely. True story... I have done this a lot.

Just send the phone. Keep the pen, battery and back cover.
