    Exclamation WARNING for new Motorola Droid users!

    FedEx just dropped of my Droid!

    I just opened the box to find out I had the box turned around the wrong way. The Droid fell to the floor...hardwood floors.

    It now has a dent in the bottom part of the phone.

    So my warning is to every new user, BEFORE you open the box, sit on the couch. Open it up over a pillow. Whatever, because of the way the box is, you can't tell which way is up!!!!

    It's charging right now and I'm afraid to turn it on. I'm going to let the battery charge up all the way and then turn it on. I'll let you guys know if it works or not!

    Same thing happened to me. Luckily I was sitting on my front seat in my car and it just fell on my lap.
    Sorry to hear about that bud

    Maybe a little bit of Bondo and touch up paint.

    Seriously, that is a real bummer. Thanks for spreading the warning to all.

    Good Info, But...

    One should probably care a bit more care when opening boxes anyway.

    I suggest: Only opening packages on a flat surface (as I always do).


    Happy DROIDing

    I normally do. I was actually in the kitchen standing over the counter. For whatever reason, I leaned far enough back for it to miss the counter and fall directly to the floor.

    I feel for you, I really do. I know what I'm like when it comes to getting new things, I want them to stay looking that way for as long as possible.

    I guess the upside is though it looks like it is only cosmetic, maybe you can get some sort of case that will cover that up and you won't even see it anymore.

    take it into the store and say it was delivered like that and you want a replacement.


    dont tell them how it happened just say you opened the box and it was that way.
