If your first pearl was from somewhere like ebay, even then wouldn't it still have the one year warranty or is that void after selling it online?

Per carrier info the warranty does not pass from owner to owner, so through cell phone carrier it is not likely to happen. Possibly you could go through manufacteror but that also is not a sure thing b/c if the IMEI has gone through them previously on an exchange they will either send the defective phone back to you or charge you an OOW fee.
