    Will there be a point when there are no more available droids and they have to replace it with something else?

    Got mine early December. The third day it completely froze while I was trying to check a text message. Tried a battery pull and a new battery but it wouldn’t turn back on. Took it into Verizon, they tried the same things; it still wouldn’t work so they gave me a new phone. Haven’t had any problems since. I hadn’t added any apps yet or dropped it or anything so I don’t think it was user error.

    had mine since release day and havent had a single problem any of these people have had. the only thing happening now is the battery door is getting a little loose, but i wont need a new one for a couple more months im sure. people just arent smart when it comes to taking care of $500 phones...they expect it to magically take care of itself.

    same here, no problems even though Ive had my processor as high as 180F for a few minutes!

    I totally agree. If you're going to get something that's really nice and expensive, it would behoove you to learn how to use it properly to get the full potential out of it.

    Reading these posts reminds me of a Driod I saw last weekend...

    It looked like it dropped from 30,000 feet and rolled down the side of a mountain!

    The shell was dented and scratched and I MEAN dented and scratched, looked like someone took a ball-peen hammer to it! The screen was cracked and the kid said it still worked fine!

    I should have taken a pic of it:icon_eek:

    The problem is probably that after the first phone breaks the new refurb phones are crap and they need to be replaced too.

    I'm still on my first phone though, I try to take good care of it.

    $90 to replace a phone with a refurb that most people paid $50 for to get it new? That's a bit ridiculous though the alternative is to buy a used one for 300$+ and still be stuck on a contract.

    Plain and simple answer?
    user error

    Slightly more elaborate answer?
    While I acknowledge that I'm sure there is a small percentage of people out there that truly received a malfunctioning device, the majority of problems can be attributed to user error :biggrin:
