    Can I cheat cricket?

    As some may know, my mercury broke once (the screen cracked) cricket refused to exchange my phone because I didn't have insurance (which I did but somehow someone at cricket screwed up and turned out I bought it and the same day it was taken out) I couldn't do anything. For about 3 months I had a brick. I then replaced the screen, and connected it. Due to it being disconnected so long I needed to get a new number so I did. My friend is already on his 3rd mercury. all exchanged from cricket for 20$ (1 screen broke 1 signal problems and rooted when turned in) I feel this is not fair.!!!! So my real question is, if I manage to make my mercury look as if it was never opened, can I go to stock and brake something on purpose, un root put stock recovery and then complain for a new phone? Also I once lost my phone buy found it, before I found it I reported it lost. Seeing how it's still under the same account but different number can I pay the 20 for replacement and "cheat" even though they owe me ? -___-.
    I really want to do this because I LOVE music but my speaker is going out. I can't jam while I shower anymore

    Hey bro you can install my "gingerbread" rom on my thread, it's stock everything. Once installed edit the build prop to change the version and build to whatever a stock merc has then when your done just replace the recovery to stock and your good to go.

    Completely fool proof. They won't be able to tell the difference since its not rooted and itll look exactly how te firmware is when you first buy it.

    warranty exchange is ~$25 we charge a $15 restocking fee. warranty covers only manufacturing defects. we send the phone to china (huawei) give you a loaner phone, and you get yours back and only fixed if huawei says it's within warranty terms. the insurance claim cost is $125+ shipping from
    www.thesignal.com



    now since this is how our store works and we follow cricket's rules i can't imagine how your friend magically got 2x replacements for just $20. . and since this is also corporate policy on warranty/insurance. if you have opened your phone up huawei will know, and they will deny your warranty claim.

    My mercury stopped working 3 months after new about a week ago. I took it in to a cricket Dealer store. They replaced it with a brand new phone now questions asked . There was a 20.00 charge . Also in the past about a month ago my second cricket phone a sanyo zio 3 Years old was lost (NO Insurance.) I called cricket to have the line shut off . They said they would replace the phone for free . so i was sent a brand new in box ascend 2. I think you guys have abused there service not always paid on time or maybe new customers or something . They have always done right to me .I have the ability to go to any provider . I had big time issues with at&t over a broken phone.

    thanks for hearing my experience with cricket. the above is just a guess nothing more
