So... my girlfriend decided to spill water on my Droid 2 and thank god It did not have a battery in. I let it dry for a couple days and everything works perfectly fine but it seems that some liquid seeped into the glass screen and when it dried it left blotches that are covering the screen and annoying.

What I want to know and do is how to permanently brick my droid 2 and if my thought process is right.

Brick the phone, call VZW, get a next day air replacement, send the brick phone back. Everything ok?

Uh, you're thought process is very wrong. And technically that is fraud.

You're a real idiot to post this on a public forum. Especially one as well regarded as XDA developers.

1.) Slap dat hoe you call your girlfriend.
2.) Think about what you're trying to do(does it seem unfair, retarded, or just downright illegal?).
3.) Get the **** off of XDA.

Frauding cheapo.

What you are talking about IS considered fraud (as stated above), and XDA does not condone fraud. Please seek advice elsewhere. Thank you.

Besides, they can still tell there was water damage. There is a little dot near the sdcard that should be white with red x's. When it comes in contact with water, it turns completely red. If it does, your warrenty is completely void, even if the phone is bricked.

Your might be right damn. Guess I should change my name from komputer freek so it does not match my bill when I call them...Wait. They won't know it's me.

Phone still works perfectly fine. Just a blotched screen. Touch screen is 100 percent effective and nothing else is wrong. A cosmetic issue. Your right, hmm paying full retail for a phone does make me cheap.

Installing rom's voids your wArranty too huh? But anyway, never got to the dot that shows water damage.

So when people brick there phones and send it back like the countless topics have told them on this forum, where is this outlash calling fraud?

In 10 years of owning a cell phone I have never lost, broken or spilled anything on it. So in my case, insurance for the most part would have been a waste. Also, insurance, unless it covers loss, is a fraud within itself.

My friends have never purchased insurance and have just strolled into the stores (VZW) and exchanged for a refurbished make.

But, yes, I should have gotten insurance.

Also, to the people who are claiming fraud, don't throw stones if you live in a glass house.

This is for all other purpose a phone modding/hacking forum. For god sakes there are stickies saying how to activate wireless tether for free.

Now to the butthurt people above me, I sure hope you are not using any of those patches or tether apps because "THAT IS FRAUD".

Examples :

Illegal. You should pay VZW to provide you with the 3G hotspot tether app or wifi tethering. But yet you are telling people to use the free one, huh?

Hmmm, so when you posted that in another topic, to the original poster, there was no problem to you, with him getting free wifi from his phone without paying?

I don't see why you're trying to defend yourself, what you're doing is commiting fraud, regardless of what you do you will be caught because of the cosmetic issue, now stop coming through the forum acting all high and mighty when you're doing something illegal, we don't want your kind here.

Oh, and voiding your warranty is not the same as commiting fraud, ones illegal, one isnt, now gtfo
