Thanks guys. I took the green machine to Sprint and just told them it turned green and showed them. So was honest . So as mentioned it is only 35 bux so hopefully I pick it up today and they actually fixed it.

Green monster has been vanished. Back to my color friendly Epic. Sprint fixed it and it seems like they replaced something. Because the dent that I had on the side of my phone is gone that I got when the GM was unleashed. I know they didn't replace the phone as a whole because there is some scratches that I remember are still there. Now I'm debating if I should get insurance Sprint asked me and I have 30 days to decide.

Well, TEP costs $8 a month - or $96 per year. If you have to replace the whole phone...

To me it is a justified expense, and one that I've had to use several times over the years.

especially if your flash-happy like I am. I can't tell you how many roms I've tested that, in retrospect, I probably shouldn't have, lol. my local sprint store thinks my apartment has electrical problems and is surging the phones into bricks... let them think that
