    Droid 1 replacement

    General question, my droid 1 has been acting up with double duplicate sms. Its gotten so bad that every single sms I get will double. I'm going to call vz about a replacement, but don't know if i should reveal I'm rooted or do they not care anymore. I remember reading on the forums somewhere someone said they brought their rooted droid 1 in for support and they fixed it or replaced without caring if it was rooted or not.

    So if i have to bring it in, should i unroot before or leave it rooted?

    i'm gonna be the first, and probably not the last, to say that's a software related issue. Dunno how that would be hardware related.

    I'd backup everything and slowly reinstall all apps, testing sms in between. Could be radio related too. Try *228? or a new baseband?

    My baseband is current, but I reflashed the most recent one from Petes site anyways and the dups have gotten a little better. Let's hope the trend continues in a positive direction.

    I've tried the * 228 and that didn't help prior to reflashing baseband, but don't think any apps are the problem

    Thanks for the suggestions
