    I recently went to verizon because of my phones camera was defective, well they told me they were going to send me a certified like new Droid, I was like, are you sure? Its going to be like new and no defects? They were like Yes, certified like new. Well I got the phone yesterday afternoon and come to find out it was a horrible replacement, the screen is loose and the keyboard is flat. The phone that I currently have has a firm screen and not loose and does not do the clicking sound when pressing the bottom left corner of the screen also the keyboard isn't flat like the one they sent me. Can I go to Verizon and tell them to just get me a phone out of the box? or ask them to send it in for me?

    Of course you can. :) You can do whatever the hell you like. Will you get the result you'd like? I dunno. I'd think they'd at least get you another replacement. Just depends on how nice the person is feeling that day. Good luck!

    Lol, wow. My suggestion is to take your phone to verizon and show them the problems with it (if it is really bad) Or *HUGE MAYBE* This is just me, maybe you could wait a couple days and see if they start replacing D1 with D2... This is just my suspision becuase they stopped making D1. To me at least, id think they would just throw you a bone and upgrade to D2....(i could be completly dreaming here though)

    Lol, that would be awesome if they would give me the D2 as a replacement. Yeah the new replacement is just horrible, it's like the first batch of Droids that were made in November.

    They have the loose screen and flat keyboard, the later batches the keyboard wasn't flat and the screen isn't loose even after taking off the backing from the back of the screen, like the one I currently have.

    HAHA thats untrue. My keyboard is bubbly and has always been. My screens not loose either. I have 4 other droids to compare to (MOM, DAD, 2 sisters) and all of them have flat keyboards. (i do confess the keys do press easier though) The screens arent loose on any of our phones.... I got my droid first the day it came out, Then My mom a month and half later. Then my dad and sis in may, now my other sister in july. All 4 of their phones have no difference...(all flat)

    No way they will replace D1 with D2. Most people haven't had them for even one year so they could say almost anything is broken and get a replacement based on manufacturer warranty.

    Bestbuy might do this but I don't see Verizon doing it
