    I went to wake my phone and realize my button is broke :( Its like it was pressed down to far or something. If i press real hard it still works but its like it's not a button. Anyone experience this or any suggestions to fix??

    I'd use the "still under warranty" app. :)

    seriously, take it in and get a replacement. I doubt you'll be able to fix it without disassembling the phone and voiding your warranty.

    cool and thank you!
    i just called verizon and they said that motorola is closed at the moment. i'm guessing that what verizon does is contact the manufacturer and then settle the issue.

    did you send in the phone after you received the replacement, or before?
    also, the activation process of the phone works the same way, correct?

    I was concerned about the power key with all the bootanimations that I was tinkering with and really thought that it would be the key to break... but for me it was the volume up key.... I had the extended warranty with VZW and they were supposed to send me a refurbished replacement, but I ended up being sent a brand spankin new one, and they told me to keep the SDCard!!...

    Anyways, it's better to call than to go to a store, you'll have a better chance of having it overnighted to you quicker.... well in my experiences it's been the better way to deal with VZW CSRs...
