    I am planning on doing an annual upgrade to a Droid X from a Moto Droid. When I sign the new contract, can I simply factory reset my Droid and sell it on eBay, or is there anything I have to do to unlock it or ready it for de-re-activation, or anything?

    All you have to do really is a factory data reset. I would also format the SD card just to wipe that.

    Here's the thing though. The X has a 8 gb SD card. Wouldn't you like to put that 16 gb SD card in your X? That's what I did with my D2.

    Why yes I would like to use my old SD card, haha. It won't mess with anything reusing it without formatting? Also would some settings carry over for some games/apps if they are backed up on the SD card?

    Also this is an Asurion insurance replacement. Will that affect anything, besides me stating it in the eBay listing?

    Official site says 16GB SD card pre-installed.

    ""8GB Internal memory for emails, texts, and apps
    16 GB microSD card pre–installed on–device — up to 32GB microSD supported""

    I'm pretty sure the internal memory is not 16GB

    If you are going through Asurion to replace a damaged / lost phone, the ESN of the original device you reported lost or damaged will no longer be valid for activation. Asurion requires that you send back a damaged phone, and if lost, that it be returned if/when found. If they catch you trying to sell a phone they have a claim processed on, you may be billed for the entire cost of the phone.

    If you are selling the phone they sent you as a replacement, that's fine. It's only the original lost / broken phone that you are not permitted to sell.

    Hope this helps.

    It's the replacement I am selling, sent the broken one back. Wasn't sure if it would have any hitches getting it reactivated on someone else's account.

    Thanks for the help

    The replacement is yours. As long as you sent the damaged one back, there should not be an issue.

    Sorry for starting the controversy on that guys. I thought internally the X and D2 were the same and the D2 has a 8 gb SD card. At least I was told that, I'll have to double check myself. Maybe I replaced my 16 gb card with a 16 gb card.

    I didn't think it made much sense to give more memory to the phone and take it away from the SD card. I'll have to double check my own phone. If the X has a 16 gb card for the OP then just format the existing card on the old phone. That will clean it all up for you.

    I have confirmed 24 total gb on the X 16 SD and 8 on the phone. D2 only has 16 total.

    Ok, I'm more curious about how everyone is getting annual upgrades. Big Red always tells me it's a two year wait. I'm in no hurry cuz I still love my Droid 1. It's a power house.

    D1, MIUI, 800Mhz

    Mine came up exactly 1 calendar year after I activated my Droid. I am the primary on a two line account, $119.98 monthly access before insurance/taxes.

    I think the way upgrades work is: You get $x after one year and $2x after you wait two years to upgrade....
