    My original Droid's mic died, so I couldn't hear anyone. Received a warranty-replacement refurb Droid. It looked identical to my original one when it first came out of the box. No issues here with the refurb.

    If you get it through VZW you do need to keep your old battery and battery cover.

    Most likely your refurb will be just like new... except it really isn't. It's an idiosyncrasy of mine, i can't stand used electronics. The though of someone using it before me makes it feel old and battered.

    With refurbs, it's really hit or miss. Before I got my Droid, I had a problem with a particular Samsung (dumb)phone that had a knack for locking up into an unfixable boot loop. My first refurbished phone was very laggy and I couldn't use the T9 because of it. Second one was faster, but the lights were dull and couldn't see it too well during the day. Third one was half decent, but I never did get a replacement that resembled the brand new one...

    My third one works perfect. It is in mint shape physically and internally.

    Like it was said here earlier, watch out for the proximity sensor. The first two they sent me had bad sensors. I dont know if they check that when the go through their quality control check. So make a call and make sure your sensor works.

    I'm on my 3rd moto droid. Their okay "like new"! Lol I had a charging problem with the first one, and the second... my keyboad was acting up really bad! I couldn't even tex for a while there. I recommend you personally driving out to verizon and exchanging it there. The ones that usually come thru fedex are the ones with the problems! Think about..... how many handlers does it go thru before it gets to you?? And whose to say they treat your package with care! When I first bought my droid I bought it online thru verizon. Even new I had problems! Till I finally took it in myself, and now it works flawless. I got one.
