    ETA for droid problems

    If you had a problem with your droid and had to exchange it, when did it occur? Was it right away, a few days into it or had you had the phone for close to a month before something went wrong? Just wondering when you knew if you had a lemon or not. I just got my droid 4 days ago and noticed on the box it was dated november 23 2009 which is close to the first launch bunch. Until I have had my phone for 30 days I am going to be noticing every little blurp to make sure its not one of the unlucky few that got a bad seed in the first generation. By the way this phone is amazing and has been great for me so far.

    Release day here--no problems--two battery pulls after lockups--that's it. Use it & enjoy it.

    Sounds like you haven't had the pleasure of owning a Blackberry. Specially the Storm. I think previous owners of the Storm tend not to dwell so much on little things, as we already realized that technology is not perfect and have come on board with an expectation of minor issues from time to time.

    Not that I'm saying things are just fine, there are always room for improvements but if you are looking for something wrong you will find it. It's the nature of the beast. These are phones, not computers so you might want to drop your expectations down a notch.

    My box says Oct 6, 2009 - bought the phone on Dec 6, 2009. Had to do one battery pull, think it was the second night I had the Droid. Went to turn the screen on to call the GF but it was just frozen on the black screen. Haven't had a single issue since. Could even have been a bad app, not to mention the unimaginable amount of processes that must have been running from the previous 24 hours of messing with the poor thing.

    it's not the box that makes the phone, it's the build date on your phone itself. pull the batter and look for the 39/09 number. the first number is the week that your phone was manufactured, the second, the year.

    you have 30 days to exchange your phone for a new one, with no questions asked (for the most part). after 30 days, you are subject to the manufacturer's 1 year warranty. vzw will still work with you during that time, but you are very likely to receive a refurbished (re-certified) phone if an exchange were to occur.

    you can also buy additional warranty coverage through verizon.

    Amen Hookbill! I couldn't have said it any better. Can't believe I put up with mine for a year.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    This reminds me of when the xbox360 came out. Some people had problems and had to get 3 to 4 xbox exchanges while others like myself didn't. It's weird how that happens.

    Hook, never had the pleasure of owning a storm. From what I have heard though, that was not a pleasurable experience. lol. I know you were being sarcastic, just being sarcastic to.

    I know the Droid is not perfect, I'm just talking about the major problems that occur. I consider it a major problem if viperboy has told you to exchange the phone.

    640k Ill take a look at the battery when I have to pull it. Don't want to do it before I need to otherwise my phone will think its ok to always act that way.
