    I saw a picture on a blog that said September. I've been looking for this picture for the last few minutes, but I can't find it now!

    Oh. That's considerably less exciting than I originally thought.

    If I rooted my phone and bricked it and it needed fixing. What if I dropped it in a bowl of water and sent it off for repair? Would they know what happened to it? Btw, my warranty with Samsung expired but I have gadget insurance for students...

    Water damage will not be covered by your warranty. There are tabs inside the phone (and battery I think) that indicate whether or not there has been substantial water present inside your phone.

    I dropped my S2 in water last year and got it replaced by my insurance company... It cost £25 though...

    That's nothing to do with the warranty though

    As G8D said, warranty doesn't cover water damage, or in fact accidental damage of any kind. If you have a manufacture related hardware issue then they should repair it even if it's rooted. As far as I am aware, they can't reject the warranty unless they can prove it was caused by rooting.

    If you have insurance then yeah they'll probably pay out.

    Though that is usually called insurance fraud.

    Well assuming it doesn't cover 'purposeful damage' its the phone equivalent of having home insurance and committing self-arson to get them to pay out.

    Hoping someone on here can help me out.

    I ported my t-mobile no. over to Talkmobile on the fifth. Sim card arrived today and I've bumped it into My samsung Galaxy. However, there is a sim card icon with an exclamation mark in the top right hand corner. Anyone know what this means? I can't send texts etc so I'm guessing it's to do with a sim not recognisable or something?

    Also, my galaxy is asking for a network code. I thought the phone is network unlocked when your previous contract runs out?

    For crying out loud, that sig is creepy. I might have to add it to adblockplus.

    lol

    What model is your phone? You should be able to get an unlock code from a website like unlocking.com (which I used for my venerable Hero), or from T-Mobile, but they'll most likely charge a lot.
