    I'm glad someone was able to help you. I also got my upgrade date changed in order to get this deal. Granted i was going to be able to update on the 21st of this month, the day the promotion ends but I didn't want to risk them running out of stock.

    Here is my suggestion on the case and screen protector issue. With these newer phones with full almost edge to edge screens it makes them a little more apt to possibly break. Gorilla glass is pretty strong stuff. So it is still smart to get a case. And it is a good idea to get screen protectors. There are so many styles of cases out there for really cheap. Depending on which style you want. I just got a holster case with kick stand for $10 dollars and got 6 screen protectors for 3. In the least get a case that gives a few millimeters protection from the screen hitting a surface. And the styles are cool on some of them.

    It took me about 5 trys to find someone to help that could help me and I did have to send him the link for the promotion . But he did with no issue change my upgrade date so I could participate with the offer. From what I read this is a very good phone. A few cons but what doesnt have a few cons. The price is right as well.

    Just got mine today. Successfully upgraded from my droid bionic while retaining my unlimited data. I'm loving this phone so far.

    Got this at best buy for free back on the 26th of July. Trial period ends after tomorrow, but there is nothing I would want, unless theIPhone 5 or S4 was free, kidding. DNA is very impressive. Love that its quad core and that it competes with the S4 and HTC one anyways. Hope everyone is still enjoying their DNA. Peace

    My only complaint is that I'm unhappy with the battery life. I don't get through a full day without having to recharge - and that's
    doing anything special. Also, Google Navigation disappeared, and the only GPS that seems to be available is Verizon Navigator which
    you have to pay for monthly.

    Hello,

    A while back, just after getting my new DNA, I posted about, among other things, Lookout Plan B to secure your phone if it ever gets lost or stolen and you didn't think to set up something like Cerberus or Lookout in advance -- or if a thief disabled whatever you had on there.

    Well, I've since been informed that Lookout Plan B only works with phones up to Gingerbread (specifically, up through 2.3.7 these days).

    Got a phone with ICS on up (or for that matter a tablet with Honeycomb*)? Take heart!

    I just found out about Android Lost:

    How to find a lost or stolen Android phone [Android 101]

    It's all the way at the bottom of the article because it's a "last resort" -- only because it's so generally reliable it works where so many other solutions fail.

    As long as you've got Froyo 2.2 on up, you're good to go even after the fact. Though I have no personal experience with it, it sounds worth a try.


    [*] Yes, this works on tablets too, albeit obviously minus certain functions.

    Good luck!
