    It was a Droid 1, of course..

    Right out of the box it has a lopsided slider, nasty purple hue over the capacitive buttons on the front, and a weak vibration function.
    The power button doesn't even work right..
    Should I call them and raise hell again? This is unacceptable..

    EDIT: just now finding out also, the WiFi doesn't seem to be working.
    This is also my third one.

    They're sending me another ****ING REPLACEMENT.
    I demanded a new phone and he dicked around and told me some crap about how he can't do that because it's insured with the MANUFACTURER and not Verizon or some crap.

    Wow. I'm pissed..he's making the store closest to me ORDER ONE to send to me. I've never been screwed so hard by Verizon in my life.

    I would just cross your fingers... alot of people were told they weren't getting a droid2 and then ended up receiving one... even those who argued relentlessly with Verizon and in the end were told they were getting a still droid1 and yet got the D2

    At this point, I would go to one of the stores and talk with the manager. The person on the phone didn't exactly handle the situation to your satisfaction and the fact that the phone you have sounds refurbished... This is presuming you ordered a new phone, not a replacement. In either case, the manager should see what he or she can do to satisfy your issues.

    He made it very clear it was gonna be a certified like new replacement, like the lady did yesterday..I guess when I get the email with the shipment number I'll type it in FedEx and see if it's more than a lb...if it's not I'm going to assume it is a Droid 1 like I was correct in assuming yesterday about the last shipment.

    This is ridiculous though... if I don't get a Droid 2 I AT LEAST want a Droid 1 that works correctly..

    I'll be doing just that if the new one I get has any issues.
