    So, I dropped my Droid last week. The phone still works (rings when called, notification sounds still play). The screen does not work - the backlight comes on, but nothing comes on the screen.

    I was only a week away from my new-every-two, so I got the Droid X (which I love). dancedroid

    The question is, is there any inherent value to my old Droid? I'll probably keep the 16GB Micro SD card (worth ~$25). I don't know if the battery has any value - still works good, and was keeping my Droid running well over a day on a charge. Is there a market for the parts?

    Be honest with the damages and put it on ebay - it will definitely sell...you might even get fifty bucks for it

    Yeah, I bought a broken droid 1 on ebay for $40.00. Had a good battery in it, the screens good. I bought it cause I figured it'd be handy to have if my droid with tu. I'm sure somebody will buy it.

    I don't remember the name of the company but there is someplace out there that will buy the phone from you. You may want to google "Buys Droids" and see if you can find it. I hear they pay pretty decently.

    check out

    Check out Buy and Sell Electronics, Sell Cell Phone, Recycle Electronics - gazelle.com. They offer a descent pay out for electronic items! I estimated my current Droid 1 (which is fully functional) and they offered something like $112. But I've never actually used them because I love my D1 so much! dancedroid

    You can see how much they would offer for your fallen soldier! GL!

    Thanks for the feedback. I sold my Samsung Omnia to Gazelle when I got my D1. Maybe I'll see what will happen on ebay.

    I agree, unless it has a meltdown, I have been very pleased with my D1. New ones come out everyday but it will have to be a significant improvement to move away from the D1
