I bought a new Droid Razr earlier this year and have absolutely loved it. Until about a month ago, when the ear-speaker stopped working. I could make calls using speakphone or with a bluetooth device, but I couldn't hear anything if I just used it like a regular phone. I took it to a Verizon store, they checked it out, tried safe mode, etc, and declared it a hardware failure. They ordered me a warranty replacement.
I got the replacement, and quickly found that it was in worse shape than my original. GPS never worked and the screen would randomly stop working (wouldn't wake up from sleep without a reboot ---- which is tricky to do when you can't see the screen). I again took it to a store, they did a factory reset. Still didn't work so I called Verizon, and they sent me warranty replacement #2.
Warranty replacement #2 arrives and I think all is well. GPS works, screen works, speakers all work.
Until last night, when the ear speaker quit working. Seriously? I can't find evidence of this being a common problem. I haven't dropped it or mishandled it in any way. I have only had it about a week. I called Verizon and warranty replacement #3 is on its way . . . . but what are the odds of this happening again? What are the odds they sent my original back to me? Anyone heard of this? Any ideas? Verizon couldn't find any issues with settings or apps . . . but this seems too big a coincidence to me. I would love ideas.
