Who has cooked their Droid 3 in the car dock.
I ordered the car dock and the charger was missing. Motorola sent me a P513 generic charger. This charger is not the correct charger for the car dock. It is only capable of charging the battery when the phone is idle. The Droid 3 needs to have the P617 charger to work properly. The P617 has 2 power sources running to the phone. One to keep the battery charged and another to run the phone independently from the battery. Even the cord that comes with the car dock shows a picture of the correct charger attached to the end of the cord.
Mine got so hot it burned my thumb taking it out of the car dock and I dropped it, no screen crack. I put it in my pocket then the screen cracked against my thigh, probably from rapidly cooling down. The screen cracked in 2 distinctive spots where I had 2 tiny scratches, it was so bad it looked like someone had hit it with a sledge hammer, hundreds of fracture lines.
After overheating, it no longer recognized my computer, Motorola's remote repair site couldn't recognize the phone. They told me to send it in for repair under warranty. They voided the warranty because of the physical damage to the screen. After complaining that the screen damage was due to the extreme overheating issue they did a heat evaluation in a car dock using the correct charger. Guess what no overheating and the billed me $122 for the repair. Why didn't they test the phone with the wrong charger like the one they sent me?
PLEASE REPORT ANY OVERHEATING ISSUES TO MOTOROLA AND VERIZON
There are a lot of complaints about overheating with the X2 and the Droid 3 with enough complaints maybe Motorola will fix this issue.
Please be careful with what car charger you use. If you have the car dock you have to use the P617. If you don't have the car dock you have to use the P510. Any other charger will cook your phone like it was put in a microwave oven.
Good luck everyone,
