People like you guys are the reason phone manufacturers can get away with denying a perfectly valid waranty.

I suggest you read the OP thoroughly before posting again.

It suggests deliberately damaging the flaps on your phone then deliberately damaging the phone with water to make a warranty claim when the phone is bricked by user error.

Clear fraud.

Yes, I wrote that, although I haven't done it myself, so I can't really tell that it will work. But right now, I can guarantee you, that you will do the same thing, if your phone gets somehow bricked or damaged. Just because you dont want to pay another few hundreds. This may help a few people, so I though why not sharing my experience. If you just want to acuse me of fraud or something, don't even reply, because I haven't cheated sh*t. I'm just giving you a guide on how to cheat the Sony Service Center (ppi-etc here in slovakia)

LOL. You're recommending fraud. The end.
I've reported the thread now anyway, so a mod will decide.

If you hard-brick, that won't help you. You can throw phoe right out of your window.

While not against the rules this thread is morally questionable to say the least.
