    Warranty is through HTC:

    How long does the warranty cover the phone?
    Your warranty coverage depends on where you live:

    • European Union: the warranty coverage extends twenty-four (24) months from the date of original purchase.
    • All other locations (including the United States): the warranty coverage extends twelve (12) months from the date of original purchase


    What kind of things are NOT covered by the warranty?

    The warranty does not cover physical damage to the surface of your Nexus One, including but not limited to cracks or scratches on the screen or camera lens. The warranty also does not provide coverage for issues related to third-party applications you've installed.

    What kind of things can void the warranty coverage?

    Here are a few examples of actions that void the warranty coverage:
    • rough handling of the device
    • exposure of the device to extreme conditions
    • tampering with the device, including removal or defacing of the serial number, IMEI number, or water indicator
    • unauthorized opening or repair of the device
    • tampering with or short-circuiting the battery
    • unlocking the bootloader using the fastboot program

    For a complete list, refer to the warranty card included with your Nexus One and also available below.

    Squaretrade.com will insure and replace the phone. But there are some catches.

    * Only pays out $399
    * $50 deductible
    * Does not cover loss or theft

    So basically you would be into a replacement Nexus one for $181.

    Not such a good deal if you ask me.

    I Think everyone here needs to email google about this. Because no ins option is crazy. So basically were screwed out 500 Bucks say we drop it in water or it gets stolen? I mean come on accidents happen. Here's the link to googles email page General questions - Nexus One Help

    I think that's the one. I'm on my BB so I can't make it a hyperlink

    Edit* nvm it auto links it for me

    Ok so I called T-Mobile and then I called Asurion.

    Basically since it's an unlocked phone they cannot send you a new Nexus One if you loose it or damage it. They will however send you a comparable Android device like the MyTouch. She couldn't tell me which device it would be tho.

    So it seems that we are SOL.

    I am going to remove the insurance from my account and see coverage through a renters policy or third party.

    The case back is very nice! The over all construction is very solid and high quality. But it doesn't mean it won't scratch if you drop it.

    I would LOVE a really nice and thin metal or plastic/silicone shell.

    Not having a option of insurance worries me.... AKA WE ALL BETTER BE CAREFUL.

    Either that or there's a bunch of third party mobile phone insurers out there I think..
    Dunno about you, but I'm pretty sure my deductible is $500.

    This is all pretty depressing news.

    If this comes out on Verizon with no insurance, I'll just stick with my Droid.
