The thing is, I don't even care about people trying to get free upgrades..garabge CLNRs or not, it sucks that one person gets a brand new upgraded phone when everyone else gets a refurb. But its the way people try to go about getting one that shows how stupid they are. First off, Verizon isn't as oblivious as everyone thinks there are and it didn't take them long to realize people were just trying to get free upgrades. Yet all you guys are instantly making it harder for yourself by demanding a phone right away, trying to call corporate, etc. This clown here says he had to take 3 days off work (who knows why) to get one. If you were at are all smart, you'd realize all you have to do is be patient and play stupid. Don't ever hint towards expecting a new phone because thats a quick way to kill you chances. I got a replacement, screen was looser than my original, so I got another, same thing. When the third one came - also looser (my original droid had a perfect slider) - I went into the store and asked if Verizon had any other Droid phones that didn't have a problematic slider (pretending as if I didn't know what else was out there) that maybe I could get as a replacement instead. They suggested a Droid Incredible and had one shipped out to me 2 days later, with a brand new battery and door just like you.
Bottom line is that it took me about an hour across 3 phone calls and 10 minutes in the store, without having to make any demands or complaints or get a manager involved. Go ahead and brag about having the balls to demand what you "deserve" but things are a lot easier when you don't make it obvious you're trying to exploit the system...

Flamer end point.
Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!
Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)
Proof you want more proof I worked for Cingular now AT&T Wireless for 5 years so before you go opening your mouth know that I know first hand what refurbished equipment is, it is garbage. You call me a clown LOL you played their little game till they felt sorry for your sucker ass and gave you what you deserved the first time your phone was replaced. Yes I did take three days off they were paid for so your point is?
But please go on and continue to brag about how you dominated Verizon and made them cave to all your demands, it must make you feel real powerful.
Not so regretfully we are going to close this thread. It was bad enough IMHO with the people who had the entitlement thing going, now we have flaming going on.
Discussions about the "best" way to get a D2, all of these things make it just a bad thread. So we will close this at this time and if anymore pop up about the "best way to get a D2" we will shut those down in the future. If anyone sees it, report it and we will take care of it.
