I got a blackberry Bold. 2 weeks ago. My first Blackberry Im a huge WM nerd, I never had a phone that isnt windows mobile. so it was awkward for me making the change but i love it.
a week after i got it. I got my phone stolen in the gym. i called asurion which is the AT&T provider for my Phone. and they made me feel like crap. Accusing me of fraud. denying my claim. then finally they said okay but we'll charge you 200 for the deductible. Now i was pissed
spening 300 on the phone plus 200 (+ tax). a total of 500 bucks. oh well my fault for not taking care of it.
but 2 hours ago . a staff from the gym called me telling me they found my phone. now after spending a lil bit over 600 In just the bold and getting called a liar and theif by both att and asurion. I would hate to give it back to them and not get atleast a sorry. but i dont want to be a bad guy here and sell it for profit. can i keep it ? as a backup? or no. i mean dont want to commit fraud here but with the service they gave me. idk.
and i herd AT&T doesnt blacklist lost or stolen IMEI's like some other carriers would do. what should i do?
It's probably been blacklisted and is all but useless. I'd call them back and try to get it reversed. And who cares what a bunch of dooshbags at an insurance firm think? They're nothing more than naval lint themselves, so laugh at them.
Here's a question....have you put your SIM card into your "recovered' phone to see if it's been blacklisted or not?
I think it all depends on your conscious. If you feel guilty about it, give Asurion a call, let them know the situation and tell them you are sending the phone back to them and would like your money back. If they pitch a fit, you pitch one right back. Ask for supervisors, for anyone higher up, as much as you can. In most cases, when that happens, they try to appease you because the theory is no one will have that much of a fit unless it was legitimate.
If you don't want to go through the trouble, keep the replacement and sell it or use it as back up. Even though this could be considered fraud, you didn't intentionally commit it. Proof of that is the fact that the gym called you to tell you they found the phone. Whoever made that phone call to you is a witness that the phone was legitimately lost and recovered.
