    Just finished reading this whole thread. So basically after the 15 days "Grace Period", even if you return your "lost" phone, the insurance company will not return the $185 deductible? Therefore leaving "NO INCENTIVES" whatsoever for us to return the re-found phone.

    From what I read, it seems pretty fair not to return it. You're better off trying to get back your deductible by selling the phone yourself on eBay or Craiglist.

    There's only two options:

    1. Return the newly found phone and lose $185 and a phone (maybe another $300). Assurion 2 | 0 Customer

    2. Keep the newly found phone, since they won't return back your money anyways and only lose $185. However you still have a chance of making that money back by selling the phone. Assurion 1 | 1 Customer <-- EVEN!

    Option 2 seems like the fairest to me. Keeping in mind the fact that this service is NOT FREE, we pay a monthly fee for the insurance policy to Assurion. Plus there's no damage done, both you and Assurion are happy, since assurion has no idea that you found the phone anyways. No damage done.

    For those of you guys that pick option 1, please feel free to do so and I respect your choice. However don't judge me if I sit back and laugh while you lose $500 - $600 for been so righteous.

    Cheers.

    I think you're confusing which phone the deductible is for. The deductible is for the replacement phone not the "lost" phone that was found. The insurance company has no obligation to refund the deductible (for the replacement phone) just because the "lost" phone is turned in. You're supposed to turn it in anyways per the guidelines.

    My only problem with that is, I had a note 5. The only option they gave me was an S7, which is better... but I bought the note for a reason. The only reason they have the s7 s so available is because they bought them for about 10-15 a piece when the batteries were overheating and are pawning them off for 150 bucks a piece. I wanted my note back. I can't get it, even though it's a better phone. So I lost my phone weeks ago, longer than I'm able to get a refund... if I find my phone, I feel like I'm within my rights to give it away, for the theft of my original note, which asurion did not give me an option to replace because they received so many s7s in bulk due to the battery overheating.

    Welcome to iMore, Peter! Sounds like you're kinda stuck. Maybe you can find a way to upgrade to the new Note 8 when it comes out later. Or, perhaps switch to an iPhone. You might like the 7s Plus or the "Edition" model when they come out. Good luck to you, whatever you do.
