    There is some good news for those that might have to seek warranty replacement for your phone. According to a recent post on Droid-Life.com, Asurion has offered to replace some customers using the Motorola Droid and HTC Eris with a Motorola Droid 2 or HTC Incredible.

    Wow! Talk about a free upgrade there. Kinda like what happened to me except I upgraded to the X through a new line but CS cancelled that line for me for free and let me keep my individual plan. :D

    I had to get mine replaced yesterday and it was a straight swap for a droid. It's not unusual for them to give you something better if it has broken a few times.

    Got my replacement yesterday via UPS and it was a might D1. Nice surprise was after the activation it notified my of an updated. 5 minutes later I was also rolling with 2.2. As a side note all 90 apps automatically downloaded and installed. Haven't had a single issue.

    I had a loose screen and messed up audio jack. I called today and a rep said I'd be getting a certified like new replacement by Monday. Hope they finally get it rite this time. My wife had to get her droid replaced twice and now the same for me.

    I called today after hearing this, talked to supervisors and everything the most they offered me was an early upgrade due to me having 4 droids replaced. They said they didnt have any refurbished droid 2 devices. My scheduled upgrade isnt until dec 24 2011

    I got the OTA update last night, come to find out that update somehow disabled my Android Market. Everytime I try to download an app, it force closes. So VZ has to send me a new Droid. I tried talking to Asurion, they told me they didn't have any Droid 2's.

    They did that, they forced closed it, even reset the factory settings, didn't do anything, still kept force closing. It wouldn't let me download anything.

    I have to admit, I am intrigued with the DX. IT is already rooted and possibly getting Froyo 2.2. I went to the VZW store today because my keyboard is loose, that I could live with, but my power button is stuck. It is hard to power the phone on and off. They are sending me a replacement D1. Thinking about selling it when it comes on Monday and buying the DX with an upgrade. If the DPro is just a World Edition of the D2 and we won't see any LTE phones until 2011, the DX might be a good look for this year.

    So you have to call them if you want to shoot for an upgrade? My droid took a quick dip in the pool and I filed the claim online. My new droid original is on the way. Honestly how many people have received these supposed upgrades? It all seems like rumors to me at the moment.
