    I was having a few issues with my Droid X today and took it to Verizon rep who after checking it out ordered me a new one.

    It is being replaced under manafacturer warranty, is this new phone "new" or refurbished.

    If refurbished should I worry about anything or keep an eye out for something?

    Only DOA (first 30 days) are replaced with new phones. The rest are Certified Like New Replacements.

    Being that they are using a DX, kernels won't matter (stupid locked bootloader! Haha!).

    The Droid X refurbs seem to be ok since they haven't been "cycled" as many times. I can't say the same for the OG Droid and Incredible. I went through 4 Droids and 3 Incredibles which were all bad in one way or another before they gave me a DX.

    I just got a replacement D1 and so far it's fine. Only my weatherbug widget isn't working (I can press on it and it brings it up, but it's not on the screen).

    I got a replacement d1 a fee weeks back and my weatherbug widget is screwed up as well. Very annoying!! Sometimes it won't even show up in the widget menu

    You'll get a refurbished phone. I haven't had any issues with my refurbished but there is always that chance.http://amzn.to/dTGKOZ
