Cingular states that it is unable
to return my original phone
after the phone is exchanged.

Cingular states that replacement phones may be reconditioned.

FYI, that's common practice with consumer electronics.

Do you think that's fair?
I don't think so.
I bought my Motorola Model V400 GSM brand new,
out of the box, I still have the box, with Cingular stamped
on the upper right hand corner.
I did pay $200.00 for it, I gave up on the Cingular promised rebate.
I didn't buy a 2nd hand phone, so why should Cingular replace
their cellphone with a 2nd hand phone.
It is their warranty.

I do notice, that the cellphone they sent me doesn't have to be
charged as often as the brand new one I bought.

I think it's quite reasonable as long as its disclosed in advance.

It's actually a Motorola warranty. If you prefer, deal directly with
Motorola.

My experience is that the quality of reconditioned products is often *better*
than new products -- they tend to be subjected to more rigorous quality
control.

Because your 7 month old problematic phone was not new.

You mean Cingular sells its customers 2nd hand cellphones?

Because I bought the phone brandnew from a Cingular Authorized Dealer.

If you buy expensive phones like a RAZR or Blackberry you will not have
this problem. (snicker)

Really? I'm guessing the RAZR has the same warranty program as other Motorola
handsets.

Warranty yes but no insurance on the RAZR maybe in March you can get
insurance.

No John, What I meant was that you cannot get the insurance policy on
any of the phones that are reasonably expensive.
