Got my phone yesterday. $375 on swappa on V's unlimited grandfathered plan. Awesome phone comapred to the RAZR. no slowdowns whatsover no matter what i throw down it's gullet. Beautiful screen with much better battery life than the RAZR too.
On my second DNA, First one was great for about one week, then I kept getting a Sim card lockout message and the phone would lock up. Only solution was to power off remove sim card re-install power back up worked for about five days and then did the same thing, decided to contact support and they suggested a new sim card, Well that didn't work also I have the otter box on it and was having issues with poeple hearing me talk unless I held the phone on my lips.
Two days ago Verizon sent me a replacement, no problems with the sim car so far or anyone hearing me talk, however The navigation (google) i think not verzion doesn't work and also it won't find my location , yes mobile data is on, wifi is on, The little sattelite thing comes up, then it goes back to the main screen. Sucks as i really like the navigation! Love the phone fast, easy just one problem after anotrher so far!
I believe you have to disable the verizon location services and just use the three google services. I had the same problem and someone on this thread mentioned that verizon's data conflicts with googles. Ever since I disabled the verizon service it shows my current location and weather for my home screen. I never use the verizon service except for navigation.
Just got my Droid DNA today - we switched from T-Mobile to Verizon. I had an HTC phone, so liked the brand. I'm having a hard time getting used to it, it's very different than my MyTouch Slide. One big problem is I can't figure out how to get to my "files" that I put on the phone via USB connection. I see them in the folder, but once I "unplug" from the computer I can't find a place to get to my folders. So if I copy a PDF (or any file) onto my phone, how do I get to it? It is a nice looking phone, and can't believe how much thinner it is than my other one.
FLRN, to see your files you need a file manager like ES File Explorer from the Play Store. Once installed you can look at all the files on your phone.
Current: LG G2 white

Purchased mine yesterday at Verizon. I originally purchased a Nokia Lumia 822 (after only having Android phones in the past), and the Windows experience was not for me. Went back and exchanged that for the Droid DNA (at extra charge of course).
First impressions: I can see how the phone lives up to its hype. Crisp quality on the interface, 1080p cameras built in, equally crisp audio, excellent built-in settings not included in the Windows phone (Windows didn't even have an option to lock the screen from auto rotating when turned on its side?).
Would change: having a removable battery and fixing the 'mass storage' communication between certain USB devices and the phone (devices like my MP3 receiver in my car look for the 'mass storage' ID on flash drives and similar phones I had in the past).
Just got a DNA yesterday, came from a galaxy nexus. Hardware wise this is an amazing phone. Software, I'd love to get rid of sense completely so I'm hoping someone gets the bootloader unlocked on the newest update. For now nova launcher will solve most of my sense woes

I got mine recently about a week ago. I went from a Thunderbolt. So far I love the dna much better in every way compared to my previous Thunderbolt. I have the stock Verizon case/holster for $9 shipped from eBay also ordered a Zagg type front and back invisible film protector. Everything looks and fits great!
Now my only recent gripe is with the screen sensitivity. When scrolling through Web pages etc. I keep opening up unwanted links and apps even though I'm lightly touching the screen. It's getting frustrating and I don't want to hit a drop down menu and accidentally hit a delete button and screw things up for me. Anyone else having some screen selection sensitivity issues with their DNA phones?
