    While watching a college basketball game I let my 7yr old listen to music on Droid she's a great kid so it was hard to say no... I had it charging and the headphones have about a 5ft cord...
    next thing I know she's up dancing around and she had Droid, I told her to put Droid down and turned around to watch more of the game... ai bout a min passed and then it hit me my heart sank..... was she going to try to put the charger back in? As I spun around there she was my worst nightmare.... she was trying her best to get that Jack in..
    I snapped I yelled for her to hurry up and get out... she took off running and crying... I had the phone in my hand and a tear that never ran but made my sight a lil blurry... those end pins looked like an acordian... I almost vomited, I had it charging cause I was down to 20% power... I asked myself "is this how it ends?"
    I sulked for a good hour then I called VZW hoping that all I had to do was get it repaired... this phone is sentimental to me, it arrived on my bday ( a day I took off of work only to spend the entire day tracking down the fedex dude) anyway they're pretty much just gonna replace it... I can't keep this one...
    before giving up completely I sucked it up and grabbed a paperclip untwist it and went to work... after a bit I had the pins straightened out enuff to take a charge.. if you pull the charger to the left a lil bit.... it charged!!!!! I know my time with this phone is short but I'm gonna keep it as long as I can... may get a week at best before the pins snap.... one thing tho, if I put the charge in to the right a bit it makes Droid reboot...

    I know ill like the new one but, that's not the point

    Btw go easy on my lil girl... don't do her like we did dude's stupid cat...lol. she'll never touch the new one... maybe once since I damn near traumatized her.

    Sorry to hear that. I don't have kids but if I did I seriously would not allow them to play with my phone.

    I think maybe you learned your lesson? : )

    Well hey look at the bright side: unless you've done stuff with root or a few other things, most of your info will be saved to gmail so you can get most of your information/apps automatically on your next droid.

    Daughters are little angels from Heaven. You've been given a message. That Droid had it's destiny planned before your little girl ever touched it. So, when you get your replacement, hold it just as tightly as the embrace you give that little girl of yours while explaining to her she did no wrong and you love her more than life. Because there just ain't no insurance in the world that can ever replace her... :) cuskit

    I have a 7 year old girl myself and have come to realize one of her most important job is to break my stuff and cost me as much money as possible. It's well worth the cost for priceless memories like that. I hope you both enjoy your next Droid.
