Replacing a few chips is not more costly than giving away whole new board, they don't scrap them after replacement. Especially such a big board as Voyager voice, which also requires time consuming calibration.  Surely that's how you do it - replace customer's board first, but then all faulty ones get repaired and can be used for next warranty or post-warranty replacements if not new installations. They are repaired at factory or certified service shop, so there's no risk or damage, and after all tests it can be used as new.  This is more common in telecom, when one board can cost $30k. You get replacement first and then send back the faulty one.

I'm confused Michael, are you saying they wouldn't have the capabilities  to de-solder through-hole IC's? Or that the fact that they weren't  originally socketed is what caused their demise?   The problem isn't the capability.   The problem is the labor involved and potential risk.  Removing  soldered ICs is labor intensive and the work can damage PC board pads  or traces.  It can be far more economical just to replace the board,  especially when it is under warranty.
