    I barely got this bionic a week ago. I THINK i like this phone but there have been a few <somewhat> minor issues but I'm concerned that a month from now they won't be so minor....so since I'm within my 14day return period (praise God usually i would find issues month or two later lol) i was thinking of taking it in for an exchange and try another bionic only with a little more experience than i had with this one... Do i call it in or go argue with a store? Either way, will they send a new one or try to give me refurbished? Can i get any advice how to handle the conversation (they all say pretty much the same things lol)? I just feel like it isnt performing like it should and maybe i expected too much but I'm too tech-dumb to really know how to handle the reps when they say policy this and we don't exchange for a new one -when i know they do...it all makes me nervous and i hate the feeling I'm being swindled and end up going home with something that isnt gonna hold up for two yrs -which is all a sista is askin for lol!!

    Thanks! :)

    As long as you're within your 14 day return period you can go into a store and have it taken care of. Should be a simple:

    "Hi I got a Bionic on *insert date*, and I'm having *insert problems here*. Since I'm within my 14 day return period may I have a replacement?"
    "Let me check a few things *asks questions, you answer*. Be right back *grabs Bionic, and sets you up*"
    "Thanks!"

    I've heard more success stories through calling. Depending on the store, sometimes they really grill you on the questions. For the record I went through 2 CLNR for my OG Droid and my local store never gave me a hard time.

    If you are in within your 14 day period, you are going to get a new phone at a store. Although you can request this via CS on the phone, they will most likely send you a refurbed one.
