    Vulcan is right and so is this person. It really makes me sick to see people who do what you do get something they don't deserve. All you should have got was another refurb, that's all you deserved.

    No. One of the great rules of life and the internet is if you have a question or problem, it's almost surely not the first time someone has had that same question or problem, and it has most likely already been discussed somewhere on the net, and usually it's already been answered.

    Obviously that rule may not always apply when dealing with a specific issue with a just released device, but you'd be surprised.

    Most people are industrious enough to use google with some modicum of efficacy, and those people sometimes take offense when it's obvious someone didn't take the time to even bother searching before posting.

    Here's a great trouble shooting guide for most tech related issues:

    Sorry for the semi-OT rant.

    Wow... This seems really rude.

    HOW DARE YOU ASK OPINIONS ABOUT WHAT DROID PHONE TO GET ON A FORUM WHERE PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THEIR PHONES AND OFTEN GIVE ADVICE!

    I don't know what you did to get jumped on like that. And it didn't look at all like "sticking your tongue out" or gloating about scamming vzw to me at all.

    Sounded more like "wow guys, I finally got someone at the phone co I've been loyal to, to take care of the issue I've had with faulty devices, as a bonus they are even letting me get a better model. Thinking about the tb, or do you guys tthink I should wait?"

    Granted, it may not have been in the right area, but I don't think the harsh snarky comment was necessary.

    Lol@ it makes me sick.

    Seriously? I'm pretty sure the company rep decided he DID deserve it.

    I'm willing to bet he didn't call and say "GIVE ME THE PHONE OF MY CHOICE FOR FREE OR I'M SHUTTING THE COMPANY DOWN."

    Jeez, I haven't posted here in a while and this is first thread I go to and there's a bunch of people bashing on this guy. He's just happy he got a good deal, who cares? Unless you're just jealous and are like "you don't deserve that cause I never got that deal". If you like flashing roms and stuff, you should probably just go with the thunderbolt, except it has really bad battery life. The Bionic should have a locked bootloader so you won't be able to do much with it. I might get bashed for this post too

    Vulcan, I didn't see it so much as gloating as excitement. I could be wrong though. I say congrats to him.

    One thing you might want to think about is that CLN phones might not be available as soon as it's released so you may have to wait a while after the phone is released to get one. Just something to think about.

    Ok, that's cool.

    This thread is going to stay open as long as the rest of the discussion on here stays on track and pertains to the O.P. figuring out which is the best device for his CLNR (certified like new replacement), present or in the future.

    This came up in the recent topics on my droidx app....I agree that in no way did you come off as being rude or mocking anything. I went through two fascinates before I got my droid x as a refurb replacement. I took it as you were excited after going through bum phones you'd be able to get a tb. Id be excited too and trying to ask others as to whether or not to get a tb or wait. I don't post much on here but was suprised at how people take things so out of context. Good luck at I hope your next phone is a keeper no matter what you get!

    I'd go with tb.

    But I've never had a motorola. I loved my htc eris. I like my fascinate too.

    I think I should clear somethings up for the haters.
    1. The replacement phone I have now does work, it just has a really loose usb port and I cant get it to charge sometimes

    2. I have a replacement (#3) coming in.

    3. I can use my free certified new phone offer on any phone from now till six months.

    4. The rep offered it to me, I didn't ask for it.

    5. I'm sorry if I came off like a bragger I'm just extremely excited.

    6. I made the thread because I wanted advice. I wanted peoples opinions on a big decision I'm going to make.I wasn't looking for negativity.

    I apologize for not being clear.
