So I bought the Motorola Droid v1 the weekend it came out and replaced it a few months later due to the headphone jack becoming loose from the circuit board and any slight movement of the headphone cable would either interrupt the music with scratchy sounds or pause it or start the media player (I usually listen to Pandora or Rhapsody).
A few months later (late October) I replace the phone again due to the same problem. By this time, Verizon no longer has any new Droids and I am stuck with one of their "re-certified" pieces of crap. Anyway, this new unit doesn't last long and I replaced it again last week and asked for it to be shipped to my house. I get the new one Monday, back up and replace it that night. I barely use it at all on Tuesday, go to the gym Wednesday and then when I went to turn off my music at the end of my workout I find that the LCD screen won't show anything. The touch screen still works and the bottom buttons light up, but I can't see anything.
So I replace it again. This time I don't mind receiving the in-store model since I already had everything backed up.
Now with this new model, the built-in keyboard's letter "A" is broken which I pointed out to the tech in the store and she was like "Oh you just have to press it really hard." Ok? I don't think I should have to press it hard, it should work like the rest of the buttons do. But that's the least of my problems since I rarely use the keyboard.
The main problem is that I barely have used the phone and already the headphone jack is messing up. Should I stick it out for a few more days or a month or two before getting a new phone? And when I go back (which will happen), should I demand a new model?
Just curious as to what everyone would do, and even if Verizon would upgrade me to a new model. Also, my upgrade eligibility isn't up until July.
