    So I was wondering how the insurance filing works with AT&T. My question is that if I do buy insurance from AT&T and report my phone broke, ( Dropped from 2 stories etc...) When I receive my replacement will AT&T completely block the other phone? So will they block the IMEI from there database, or can I just go get Straight Talk or something and pop that sim in or maybe T-Mobile since they offer Nano Sim. Thanks for your responses I really appreciate it !:)

    So basically, when you committ insurance fraud you want to know if you can use the proceeds of the fraud with a different carrier???

    If so... yikes...

    First off, your reply has little to do with the I5, but instead would apply to all iphones - and pretty much any phone.

    I think you are asking if you can PRETEND it is broken and get a new one.

    I am not going to answer that and hope this thread gets closed.

    Get SquareTrade instead, it's a much better deal. They posted a link on FB today to save $35 too.

    You have to return the broken iphone, if not they will charge your credit card.
