    Well guys I was wondering what y'all think I should I do... I got a D2 that is able to be ovetclocked to 1.35ghz ULV and the camera is bad. The camera is very grainy up close and far away and with all diff settings. Think I should get a replacement through insurance or keep my D2 that has a pretty stable cpu and just put up with the camera? Any opinions are appreciated

    Edit

    This is on the stock rom and liberty rom

    That would depend on if you actually use the camera..... from what i understand most of them have a fairly stable cpu but its a toss up on if the replacement one is as stable.

    I use the camera moderately from time to time. That's the only thing I fear is gettin a bad phys keyboard or an unstable CPU. I like the performance of 1.35ghz

    I would swap it, 1.0ghz to 1.35 isnt the end of the world. The new one will be overclockable, even if its not as much...its not that much of a difference at all IMHO.

    Heck, my DX running at stock 1.0ghz and then to 1.45ghz which I normally run it at....isnt a mind blowing difference anyways, its just a little snappier.

    It could be fine either way. My D1 is actually faster at 900MHz than at a higher speed. It'll handle and run at 1.25 though. My boy got an extended life battery for his DX and moved his minimum speed up (between 600-1000) with the max still being 1000 and that thing is stupid fast!!

    If you end up opting for the replacement, get it through Verizon's warranty for free instead of having to pay your insurance deductible. They'll cover a bad camera as long as it doesn't look physically damaged.
