    hey i have a interesting fix for you guys.... its not pretty but it works if you are just playin with your og droid or dont care about appearence.
    dont blame me for any problems
    steps
    1. pull out battery (just incase)
    2. pry phone apart at power button area
    3. slip something under the power button and pop it out... it will prolly break a bit you arent going to use it so who cares
    4. then look at the area there is a square with a cirular silver things on there pry it off (the whole square)
    5. now you should be looking at the ribbon with nothing on it just some gold connector points
    6. take a piece of aluminum foil place it crumple it in a square shape (not to tight)
    7. place it in the power button void
    8. put a piece of black electrical tape over the area
    9. put battery in
    10. press power button it works for me
    basically you are replacing the silver disk that would turn on and off the connection
    hopefully this helps some people. i did this on my old droid which my daughter who is 2 uses for angry birds and so on.

    if any one is truly interested let me know and i will take some pictures

    If your date is Feb. 24, try to give verizon a call. When I have been within a month, sometimes more, with any of my phones, and had a problem, they are usually willing to get permission to upgrade a little early.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention that also. My date was Feb. 22 and my OG Droid finally bit the dust for good on Jan. 27th. Went to verizon store and they gave my discounted upgrade with my credit, and matched internet pricing on a new Razr.

    As a customer care rep, I can back this up. As long as a customer is not past due on their bill, my own supervisor will approve us doing their upgrade early if they are within a month. Call and ask. I can't speak for every customer care supervisor but I've never had it be a problem to do an upgrade for a customer who is a month away or less.
