    My phone has had all sorts of issues recently, and verizon said they would ship out a replacement.. I am running BB 0.4 and imagine all I need to do for making a backup is go into recovery and make a backup (like usual) then when new phone comes, root it, go into recovery, and load backup??

    Also, after I make the backup, and I want to unroot and restore the stock froyo, how do I do that? I just want to make sure verizon doesnt see my root.. thanks!

    Yes, just make a nandroid backup. then when new phone comes use link 3 in my sig to root and then restore your backup

    To unroot your old phone use link 2 in my sig. Option 1 then Option 5

    I wonder what kind of "issues" you are having ?

    Depending on your answer, restoring your old back-up on your replacement phone might be bringing your problems with you

    I figured I would take and attach some pictures of the keypad beveling, as I havent seen any posts about this happening..

    Some of the earlier D1s came this way. This past weekend I got to hold a D2 and noticed that the keys on the D2 are raised in this fashion as well. So be aware that this may happen again or you may receive a droid that has the raised keys. You may have to get used to them. :blink:
