    Just like the D2 sent out globals after a while, will the D2G asurion insurance send out D3's?

    It'll be a while. I think they still have D2G's in stores to sell.

    end of line...

    With the number of problems I've had with my Droid 2 Global (large amounts of dust under the screen, terrible battery life at times, and some other issues), I've been waiting it out, spending a lot of time fixing things myself when I can.

    I guess if I do decide to return it under my insurance policy, I can try to hold out until they hopefully start giving Droid 3's as replacements.

    At the moment I'm fairly happy with it though, aside from some of the problems I mentioned earlier.

    I don't know that they will ever decide that all globals will be replaced by droid 3s. The reason they did it with the droid 2/ global is that the global was a direct replacement for the d2 and they then phased the d2 out completely. Now there may still be times that they run out of globals and are forced to give you an upgraded device, but the d3 is significantly better and newer than the global so I really don't see them making it the permanent replacement. Also remember that even after a phone reaches eol, they still keep a back stock for situations like these.

    Yeah, I did an insurance replacement of my Og Droid the other day and they sent me another one. If they still have OG Droids you can bet they'll have D2G for a while.

    Well i just turned my og droid in for warranty replacement to assurion and they sent me a brand new Droid 2 Global as of Thursday. Once i saw i could get cyanogenmod on here i had to finally part ways with my og and now i have a brand new phone running exactly like my old one with more memory and speed... i figure ill keep this for 6 months do another warranty replacement get a new d2g if they arent giving out d3's by then and then in another 6 months or more they should be giving me a brand new d3.... im not saying what im doing is right but they get me for every penny they can so i intend to do the same lol

    If you replace under insurance, does Verizon offer the option to pay the difference on an upgrade?

    I doubt it, but it would be nice.

    I did the same thing with the d1 and they gave me a d2g. So I still have my upgrade. The phone im waiting for is the atrix to move to verizon. I heard it a few months ago. Id love to get an atrix reflashed for verizon. Is this possible since I have a sim?

    i don't think that would be possible because of the differences in their internal radios since they use different tech for both 3g and 4g. however isn't the bionic essentially the verizon atrix?

    Atrix 4G isn't 4G, it's your regular GSM/UMTS/HSPA+ phone, and as such is completely incompatible with Verizon.

    People doing this sort of thing is what jacks the prices up on insurance...just saying.

    Exactly. That's why it bothers me that certain sites report when the insurance companies are out of a certain phone.

    No, my phone is actually broken, but I can hold off until the D3 comes.

    Such a scanner...its people like you that abuses the system that ruins it for a lot of us that uses the warranty insurance like its supposed to be: replace a damaged phone (water, cracked screen, etc.) to lost or stolen phones. I hope they keep track of people that do these scams and bar them from using the insurance to get a better model phone

    If its not Boeing, I'm not going! Team Boeing ROCKS!!!

    Did you replace under Verizon insurance?

    My Droid 2 Global now has a problem where the bottom of the screen has some kind of material that appears to be swelling up and covering some of the pixels.

    Droid 3 or not, I really might have to replace it soon.

    Had that happen on a warranty replacement Droid 2. I called and *****ed at Asurion they ended up sending me a new D2G as replacement. Mine came up until a certain point little bit little everyday covered up scroll bars and what not. Was annoying.
