    I was so excited to get this phone a few months ago. Now I don't want to go near it!!! I'm not sure if I did too much research and spooked myself but I do NOT want to deal with the sim card issue or dropped calls or screwed up contact lists...etc. I have found thread after thread of folks fighting numerous issues with this phone. I would love to believe that it is only a handfull of bad phones (and unlucky people) out there but goggle "sim card issue on DNA" and its a little scary. I am on call 24/7/365 and cannot miss calls/texts during the overnight hours.

    Conventional wisdom says choose another phone or stick with my Commando (no issues except painfully limited) but then the inner child kicks in and says "maybe I'll get lucky"

    All those out there who have not had issues, please put my mind at ease by responding and lettting me know there are a lot of you out there

    No I'm not "trolling". If my post came off as such, then I must not understand what forums are for. I thought it was pretty straight to the point, maybe I'm too old as stupid language such as "trolling" is actually annoying and juvenile to me. If it offended you move on.

    There's always going to be a couple of lemons, especially in the first batch of new phones. Some people are just "lucky" enough to get those lemons. If you have those issues then Verizon should be more than happy to replace it for you with a CLNR (if they even have CLNR DNAs right now).

    I've had the DNA since the first week it became available. Never had the SIM card issue until a couple of weeks ago.

    I popped it out and put it back in A's no issues since then.

    Whodunit, you have a good point and this is a legitimate concern. I wish I could say I have not had the SIM issue but it has happened to me a couple of times. What seems to help is to remove and replace it. I am not too concerned because I think it may be more an issue with the card and not the actual phone. If I continue to have problems I will take it in and have Verizon give me a new SIM. But I can surely see your concern if you need the phone to function 24/7. That being said I have yet to have a phone that didn't need some issue addressed and I have had the Droid 1, Droid X and Droid X2.

    Had the SIM card issue but like others have said once I popped it out and put it back in the issue went away. Have not had any other issues and would genuinely buy the phone all over again if I had to.


    Don't forget....people generally will only post complaints and theres some people who will always have a complaint no matter what. I thought this was the best phone on the market leading up to my purchase and my experiences with it have only confirmed these thoughts.

    Do yourself a favor...when you do get it, purchase a wireless charging pad with it. Its one of those conveniences that I could never neglect now that I use it daily. There's just something about being able to charge your phone just by setting it down and having it available for immediate use without fumbling with a cord that is amazing.

    One thing to remember is forums exist for trouble shooting as well as other aspects. Since the Google search is based on hits you will have to dig down to about page 27 of your Google search to find positive reviews, sites, etc because most owners that aren't having problems tend to not post their lack of problems.
    I'm not trying to sway your decision either way, just want to add that the deck is stacked against positive reviews once a device releases and finding a place you trust the answers you get is the best course of action.
    Had I stuck with a Google search only I'd have not gotten my Rezound and would've steered VERY clear of my Incredible 1, both of which have been stellar for me .
