    So I got my droid replaced today with a new one. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up about the headphone jack. When I'm playing music it cracks and pops and the headphone jack was loose so they gave me a new one :)

    Mark my words, this will be one of the number-one causes of Droid replacements over the long-term. I got my Droid on release day, and after a couple months, I'm noticing some subtle play that results in static/crackling if disturbed. This stuff could be avoided if manufacturers would epoxy the headphone jack to the system board or completely isolate it. One or the other, but not a couple skimpy solder connections.

    Also it seems like their where some very small design changes in the qwerty keyboard it doesn't seems so flat anymore. But that might just be me.

    Is this done under warranty or with the optional insurance?

    What is the length of the warranty, I got mine Nov '09

    wow i thought i was the only one. and to make matters even more annoying, when i have a headset or cable connected to the jack voice calls are mute after removing the cable. I have to re-insert the cable into the jack to be able to hear on the other end of the call again.

    thinking about taking some two-ton epoxy to the top of it.

    that folks, is alliteration.
