    I recently have bought a droid 2 and am looking to sEll it because I can't return it back to verizon since it is my second exchange. I'm selling it on craigslist list and it is either a droid Eris in good condition plus 120$ or just about 260$ cash. And then with just that cash I would buythe droid Inc but is the droid Eris a pretty nice phone? I mean not choppy or terrible battery life or anything right? Lmk what you guys think the best deal is

    If it is within 30 days you can still swap it for another phone. Don't let the store tell you otherwise unless they can show in writing that they don't swap more than once or twice.

    I would take it back to them and tell them that you want to get put back in your old phone and find another agent/dealer. Any agent/dealer that isn't willing to help their customer isn't worth doing business with.

    That is my opinion, as we let our customers swap out as many times as they need within the 30 days.

    Is this a Verizon Dealer? Call customer service, explain the situation to them and how you feel about it. They will overnight you a phone. If you find a CSR that doesn't want to play ball, call back and get another one. Tell her you've already spoke to one CSR and you're not happy.

    You will get what you want.

    That is a lie. They can remove contracts. I have done it at our location. Is it an agent or a dealer your dealing with?

    By the way OP the Eris isn't available anymore. At least I don't think it is.

    Eris is a low end device...which won't be getting any more updates... I wouldn't waste your time, but that's just my opinion.

    OP, what about the Droid 2 dont you like? Maybe we can use this to guide your decision.

    Also, having to return a defective phone does nothing to your 30-day return policy. Go to another Verizon store, or call.

    You can get the Eris off craigslist. But it says on the receipt apparently only one exchange is alowed and that I'd have to pay a termination fee to get out of my contract

    Did you return the phone because you didnt like it, or because it didnt work?

    Again, what was the last phone you exchanged? What dont you like about the D2? What about the Eris do you think will make you happy?
