    If they offer the Droid 2 when it is released then this would not be so bad but neither the Inc or the X are anything close hardware wise due to the keyboard... will be a lot more careful with my Droid 1 now thats for sure I like my keyboard... but more importantly I like my root and Cyanogen :(

    I wouldn't mind an X, but I prefer to have root access & total control over my property.

    The X has been rooted and I am sure people are working on how to load up custom roms and we will have it shortly.

    I'm probably one of the few who loves the physical keyboard. I like playing games on my phone and on-screen controls just don't cut it. Theoretically, i could pull the "must have lost my droid, need a replacement", get an X and keep my D1 as a mini PSP, but honestly this phone has been too good to me to just abandon it for a bigger screen and some minor hardware upgrades. But for a D2...

    if there is a battery issue with a phone and it keeps dying is that a reason for a "replacement" wife has the devour and likes it but the battery keeps dying she doesnt need anything high powered she likes the ally, think its possible to file that claim due to the battery? i've never filed through asurion before but i've had the coverage for years.

    An X would be a nice replacement, that would make the insurance seem worth while again

    This is interesting news. My deductible is only $50. At least when I go to the website that is what it tells me. My Droid 1 has a loose screen but I don't to want a lessor phone as a replacement. But a DX sounds nice especially if I can get it for my deductible price.

    I bet this limited supply they speak of will only be offered if the customer complains about an eris or devour. I knew a few people who already got Incredibles as a replacement but only after contacting the main office. I'm sure they sill happily hand out their supply of eris's as long as the customer doesn't complain.

    Honestly though, imagine driving a Porche and paying mondo premiums and then totalling your vehicle only to have it replaced by a Taurus...because the insurance company considers the Taurus comparable because both cars have four axles and four wheels and both run off a gasoline powered engine. I bet a lot more people would be complaining then...

    I'd make a big stink if they tried to give me an Eris or Devour in replacement for a Droid.

    Makes me feel a whole lot better, i would of gotten a D1 on ebay or craigslist over paying $90 for an eris. But i would settle for the DX or Dinc. I still prefer the D1 cause it is still an awesome phone (now that I finally rooted to froyo dancedroid )!
