    Question Rooted? Beat the voided warranty system? Get a new nexus one without forking out 550?

    ok well heres a thought, and a sure way to get a nexus one without mailing back and paying 550 when they find out that its voided.
    all you have to do is have insurance and warranty. report your phone stolen or lost, insurance only makes you pay 130.00 for the new one,...they never find out if its rooted because u no longer have it. get your new nexus one factory the next few days, ...keep or sell your old one,...and you just paid 130 for a n1 instead of base price and back to factory........that is if your unhappy with rooting and wanna go back. ....
    question?...is this wrong?

    it has a gps built in they'd figure it out in a second. also you could always go back to the stock rom even though it's rooted. most likely if it's hardware they don't care if it's rooted only software. i could be wrong on last part. also it's really hard to brick your phone you have to be an idiot.

    i know it has a gps, but if u lets say sell it....and report it lost or stolen, its no longer wihin your range of gps....it still counts as lost or stolen...even if its in a mile within your range. u still lost it, or someone simply stole it.....right?...there fore your insurance covers it and they send you a new phone for 130.00

    What you're talking about is insurance fraud and illegal.

    The phone having GPS is irrelevant for a number of reasons: the phone could be powered off, GPS disabled, indoors, etc. Plenty of phones have GPS and are lost/stolen daily. Phone companies will not aid you via GPS in tracking down your phone.
