    Some how my droid got 3 scratches on the screen and now my droid is possesed. When I say possesed I mean the screen moves around on its own and random things are selected. It also butt dials people when I try to use the phone. Any suggestions other than getting a new phone?

    Get another phone. I'm not encouraging fraud here because it doesn't make sense that scratches, which is pretty hard to do IMHO can cause your Droid to go act up.

    Exercise your warranty and next time if you put your Droid somewhere don't put it next to a diamond, diamond dust, or sand. ;)

    I spoke to Big V and the customer care rep didn't really believe me, but I ended up getting a cpo htc eris. I wish I knew how I got the scratches because; I droped the phone before on concrete and didn't have a problem with nothing on the screen. Then just recently the scratches appeared.

    You made a huge mistake there, accepting an Eris as a replacement. The Eris is nowheres near the phone that the DROID is. Granted, the way VZW can be at times you may be lucky you got that; but I know I would have raised a hell of a stink.

    Scratches aren't a warranty issue.

    Something harder than the screen rubbed against the screen. You don't have to drop the device to scratch the screen.

    Scratches aren't covered but he is also having software issues which are covered so he should've asked for a replacement droid instead of an eris.

    I've dropped my Droid on the concrete several times and as tough as the screen is, I still received one or two tiny tiny barely visible scratches as a.consequence. The only time I can see the scratches though is when I look very closely at the screen in direct sunlight (I can't see them under normal lighting), so it doesn't bother me at all. And that was the result of multiple drops and one of those drops resulted in the Droid's screen falling flat on the corner of a brick. I suspect that that was the drop that scratched it.

    You want to see a video about the glass on the Droid. Go to You Tube and type in Droid Glass, next, click on Motorola Droid Scratch Test. Watch this guy hack at his Droid with keys, and guess what? No scratches. Finally, here is what everyone needs to see on You Tube regarding your Droid. Type in Gorilla Glass Test, which is made by Corning, and you will be surprised. After my research about the glass on our Droid, I am now a firm believer that the screen protectors are money makers, and don't serve a purpose. I have been without a screen protector for over a year, and not one scratch, and I don't have an office job, I have an active job (911).
