    So went to home depot today as I am attempting to remodel..I get maybe 3 aisles in and realize my phone isnt on my belt and panic, altho I can still hear music thru the blue tooth ... so I start walking around till it fades then go back to where it has a stronger signal, to the point I coud have been standing on it, this is in the lobby in home depot ..home depot people calling it, cant hear it ringing ... so I know Im close, still hearing music.. so frustrated I see a trash can, lift off the top of the trash can and go thru tons of gunk.. and, at the very bottom, I see the back of my leather case and am rejoiced.. I pulll it out, feeling great, until I turn it over and see this..

    Needless to say, Im now the proud owner of a droid 2 .. which isnt as bad as I thought it would be except having to buy an extra window mount..

    sigh...cant win

    No Idea... im guessing guy outside was jusw sweeping stuff up and caught it in the sweeper and crushed the trash can when it was full but to me it looks like it was run over cause its literally bent in 1/2.

    Missing the big picture here. The Droid was still playing music in that awful state. Through bluetooth no less. My hat is off my friend, you had a good phone.

    I'm on the Droid 2 as well, love it!
