Thumbs down my dog ate my pearl

Please Login to Remove!

My boxer chewed up my pearl! sucks! he's usually not the type to chew things like phones or remotes but I think the rubber skin reminded him of his other toys.. the damage isnt that bad but none of the buttons no longer work.. I am guessing it is from the slobber? oh well.. I guess I gotta order another

anyone know of any good uses for a partially working pearl?! lol

Well, it is good for parts. What a drag.

My cat seems to be attracted to my Best Skins Ever screen protector. Likes to lick it. Annoying. Causes me to wonder what the Skin is made of.

Another time she was looking at the backlight and all of a sudden batted the phone to where it went flying across the room. Luckily it landed on carpet.

Sidenote: I try not to think of what pets cost me in terms of damage they cause. E.g., I have a $5000 1950's Herman Miller chair that the cat decided to use as a teething device while I was away at the office. Did not notice the handiwork for about a week. Chair is now worth $100. What a drag.

Pardon me, I have to go beat the cat.

Yeah, it was all original wood and leather. But for these beasts being so innocent, loving and faithful, I would have recovered the chair with her hide.

Default Get the $5.00 insurance plan and get a new phone free

Call em up and be like my friend just told me i can get a insurance plan for 5 beens a month and it'll cover anything on the phone is this true and the rep will be more then happy to assist ya.And they could give a rats ass the real reason your calling.
then just wait a few days and presto "glad i got that plan.WINK WINK "

When i got my pearl the rep at t-Mo took one look at my previous phone and said theres no way im sellin you this phone without the insurance plan on it .And then asked me what the hell ive been doin with my phone lmfao .I work at a steel plant (where BETHLEHEM STEEL used to be)if anyone knows it ,and ya i can be pretty brutal on a phone. ive gone through 4 in the 7 years ive worked there.

My brother is with T-Mobile and I'm sure he would be interested in the extended warrenty coverage. What does the warrenty actually cover? With Rogers here in Canada they only offer the standard 1 year manufacturer warrenty on parts/labor. Though some of their authorized dealers offer extended warrenty protection which basically extends the standard warrenty coverage to include liquid damage and battery/charger replacement with in 3 years from activation. Here it typically cost around $110.00 for the extended warrenty. If though for example a dog chews your phone or you run it over with a car then the warrenty doesn't cover such accidents.

Read the fine print on the insurance though. The you still have to pay a HIGH deductable to get your "replacement" phone.

I gave a couple old 62xx blackberries to my pitty. She loved them and they actually last longer than most of her other bones.

Dogs must like blackberries. And I thought they are carnivores...

That MIGHT work...but in some cases, the rep will need to make a test call to the device to ensure that its working. If you go in to a store, you might need to show your device to ensure that its not damaged. This might vary from carrier to carrier

TMo wont insure your phone if you have owned it for longer than 14 days.
