Three weeks ago, my dad ran my phone through the wash machine. We put it in the freezer and now it works fine. Stupidly, today I went into my subscriber telling them I accidentally broke off a button, so I could get a new phone. I didn't realize that they'll charge me the cost of my phone when I send it in and they see the water damage indicator where the battery was. What should I do I don't have to send in my battery just my phone. I have a blackberry 8130, Thanks!

Here's an idea... How about taking responsibility for the situation instead of trying to defraud the carrier?
Great first post, BTW.

The indicator they're after is NOT on your battery. Send it in - or not - they will still know you dunked your phone.

I bet your Dad said he's not buying you a new one because it's not his fault that your phone was in your pocket?

Perhaps it's time to step up and start doing your own laundry.

Is there something I can do to change the color of the red indicator?

You won't be able to cheat the system.. (This time)

Water damage has some tell tale signs..

And why may I ask did it go in the freezer?
(Don't we have a post somewhere partaining to water damage)

I'd be arguing with father, he broke... (But my BB rarely leaves my side)

How expensive in the 8130 these days anyway? 50-100 bucks tops..
