Hi all,
Son has given my wife's Okta Touch a "bath" - have it in hot water cupboard with rice etc to try and save but not looking good.

It's a business phone and has insurance on the plan, what will be the likely replacement?  It's the Windows Mobile piece that was key for her and the touch screen was nice, but I doubt Telecom is going to fork out a WM touchscreen as replacement given that I can only see the TouchPro2 that fulfills that!
Is it likely to request an HTC Snap be provided, or do they have defined equivalents?

Thanks.

depends on who you have your phone insurance with? Does Telecom itself do the insurance for your business phones, or a private company (like AMI/State/Tower etc)?

I'm sure Telecom will find another OKTA Touch to replace it with.

Thanks muncher12, yeah insurance is the Telecom one.  Didn't realise they still had the old CDMA phones lying around tbh.

So she can spend $800 on a new XT phone then - might be the goer really, move over to new plan

Telecom suppliers still have loads of Okta Touch mobiles. They are $749 I think.
