    My wife has been through six (6) Droid 1s since last June. Verizon just keeps sending her used Droids with the same issues as the last. Anyone know what Asurion is sending out for replacement? If it's a Droid 2 or better her phone may take a bubble bath or go rock climbing soon :D

    If you plan on committing insurance fraud, it probably isn't wise to tell everyone about it.

    He never said he was going to commit insurance fraud. I'd honestly do the same thing if I kept getting phones with the same issues. Anywho, just because they discontinued the Droid 1 doesn't mean they don't have any in stock. I believe that they keep a certain amount of phones for that reason. You may want to double check though.

    Proximity sensor. Constantly puts people on mute and hangs up on people. The people at Verizon look at me like I'm practicing sorcery when I say "proximity sensor". One guy actually asked what that is. Embarrassing.

    I had this same problem, and sent back 5 of them... the 6th one they sent me was a D2... not one problem at all with it (aside from the bootload, but now that is remedied.

    Yeah I was wondering about that. I know they are out of the DX and are sending out DX2s so I figured they would have to be out of the original gangsta droid. Thanks for the advice.

    You realize insurance claims aren't free right? I would have to pay. Good luck at your next boy scout meeting though.

    I just put a claim in a couple weeks ago for a D1 and I got a D1. The guy said they had plenty. I was surprised too because a few months ago you couldn't get one as a replacement.

    Probably from lots of people upgrading to the "newer, better" phones...my customized D1 still beats most new stock phones lol

    So when you want a new car, you just drive your old one into a lake and pay a few hundred $ deductible for a newer one? You're the one that said you'd throw your phone into a bubble bath if you could get a newer model. Intentionally damaging an insured item to get a different/newer/better item is insurance fraud.
