    It's easy hook, you hit that little phone lookig icon on the droid .... then punch in some numbers at random. :)

    Lol, yes, this isnt the iPhone where you have to wait till the second or third generation to make phone calls and send picture messages.

    I have gotten some very cheap accessories for droid, but considering how cheap they are on Amazon, I suggest going through them instead of e-bay. I got a data cable for .99 plus 2 shipping, a car charger for 1.25 plus 2 shipping, almost everything I've purchased so far has been under 10 a peice. I suggest always looking for the term Motorola OEM, Verizon tells you not to use them, and they don't support them, but thats because verizon wants you to buy the $25 dollar car charger from them, not the $3 OEM that amazon sells.

    I picked up a stand alone battery charger from Verizon. The product number was P323 (OEM Motes) and it comes with a micro usb charger to plug it into. It was around $21.

    $10 is $10. I'd file the complaint. What's the worst that can happen...you don't get your $10 back and you're in the same place you are now?

    Have you tried the monoprice chargers? USB Converters
    I can't tell you how well they'll work as far as charge speed and making the screen go crazy (reviews go both ways) but monoprice has great products for the price with very reasonable shipping (especially when buying numerous things) and some of the best customer service I've seen.

    Maybe it would be more appropriate to say "Burned by a seller on eBay" since this isn't eBays fault.

    Although I fail to see how you have been burned. It looks like they are willing to help you resolve the matter.

    I got one of those chargers with a battery in yesterday. From what I can tell, it only chargers the knock offs... it doesn't appear to work with the OEM battery but it charges the ones they sell.

    No, but I thought about monoprice. I'll bet they have them there.

    Update: I managed to get both chargers working. Now I have two more on the way.

    I had to fiddle around with the battery to get it to recognized it needed a charge. Hopefully these other chargers are different. If not I'll do a paypal complaint on both people and get my 20.00 back.
