the main question is at the end of the post if you don't want to read about my adventure with the pothead Verizon rep that I forgot the name of and will call billybob.
IRRELEVANT PART THAT ISN'T REALLY ENTERTAINING:
my phone was experiencing several issues for a few days, still don't know why, it would just have HORRIBLE signal for no reason at allll, even through sbfing. it wasn't just my service since I compared my friends equivalent phone signal to mine in the same area. anyway, I decided I wanted to go to the Verizon store and use my insurance to get another one. so, 25 miles later I'm there, spent about 10 minutes waiting, then billybob approaches me with bloodshot eyes and asks questions, I replied and told him my problems and all that jazz, even made up the fact that my phone crashed constantly to be able to exchange it, he takes only three minutes of my time, installs ATK on my phone without asking me and says that reboots are normal for droid xs and to keep this installed and I should be fine. obviously he was wrong, but I couldn't tell him that he was an idiot, so I parted ways with billybob.
two days later, nothing has changed, I cursed billybob for being so silly and I decided to drive back and try again, in hopes of using my insurance this time for a new phone, I walk in and wait again for about 10-15 minutes, then all of the sudden, out of nowhere, billybob appears AGAIN with his bloodshot eyes, I told him that atk did nothing and that the phones signal was worse than usual/I kept crashing, he used the most bull excuse ever by saying that RANDOM REBOOTS ARE COMPLETELY NORMAL FOR A DX AND THAT HIS DOES IT OFTEN. I knew I was stuck with a clown that had no idea how to use a DX after that statement.
so the relevant part, I asked him about early upgrades, without taking two seconds he said that they no longer existed, even though a rep I talked to over the phone said they were not going to do them anymore soon, but I still had over a week. I asked him again to double check and then we parted ways again. billybob seemed very rude both times I was there, so I don't know if he was rushing me out, ignorant, or high. but I keep seeing all these posts about early upgrades in this forum, so im really curious, did I get screwed?
yayyyyyyyyyyy for venting.
