    Actually if you do research you will find all batteries especially nickle hydride (most memory resistant batterys made available) will develop memory over time if you don't deplete them completely prior to recharging. Search Google.

    Well I was able to perform some surgery on my droid to get the slider from being so loose. It still has a sizable gap between the slider and physical keyboard but it's not nearly as bad as it was. I decided not to get a replacement because my droid has been very good to me. I can overclock it to whatever kernel I want with no reboots. I have really had zero of the issues most people talk about with their phones. I like to droid2 but I would NEVER expect to get one in return for a droid1. I am too worried if I get a replacement it will ruin my luck with the droid1. So I will deal for another 6 months till I can upgrade to hopefully one of the new 4g super droids!

    Actually one of the best answers I've seen about battery "conditioning" is the following post:

    I was not so lucky as some have posted.

    My touch screen on the Droid was not working at all. Everything else was working fine as far as the buttons and all but its pretty hard to navigate just with the buttons.

    So I took it in and they sent ordered warranty replacement.
    They said they didn't know when I would get the replacement because it was on backorder. I asked if there was no way to find out? He said no and that I might just get a free upgrade to a Droid 2 since it was backordered.

    I was kind of excited but didn't want to hold my breath. Good thing I didn't because I just got a refurbed Droid.

    didnt notice this post till today, but a few days ago the "news" app widget showed some thing that this was happening. I have "droid" as one of the news topics. mind you, nothing is wrong with my droid. it works fine, but if theres a way to get a D2 for free, well hell im all over that. today I called and said when I slide the screen open it goes black. I talked to the VZ guy for a while and he made me reboot yada yada. asked when this all started and I said 2 weeks ago(around when 2.2 went live) a few minutes later, he goes well sir. good news. because your bill is always paid on time and your still under warranty we can offer you a refurbished droid or the D2. so.... now I get a D2! =)

    pretty stoked about this! so, guess now I need to start researching how to root a D2 and so on.

    Anyone who received an email that said how to activate your A855, and ended up with a Droid 2?

    I received a D1 when I called in with charging issues and my head phone port was nothing but static when you plugged anything into it. The D1 they sent me was TERRIBLE, the touch screen would CONSTANTLY go out, I would receive calls and just have to let them go to voice mail because I could not unlock the phone, I called in and for the trouble of getting a defective replacement phone they sent me a D2. dancedroid dancedroid dancedroid

    My wife had a Eris that was locking up a lot too, it got to the point to where if she had over 30 or so text messages she couldnt text anymore or send pictures, I called in on that expecting to have them send a refurbished Eris, I was surprised when the Verizon support asked if I would just like a D2 instead... Hell yeah! dancedroid dancedroid

    Almost forgot, they even sent the extended batteries and backs for both the D2's.

    Was this recent, or in the end of August when others were receiving D2s?
