    I'm calling VZW to give them a piece of my mind. I plan to get a replacement soon as my Droid is giving me some issues. I will NOT settle for ANYTHING less than a D1.

    I hope so. I really don't care about the X or D2. I just want the SAME phone I bought.

    I probably should have been a little more clear...you can, FOR NOW, still get a D1, BUT it's on backorder for a minimum of a week. Eventually the Devour will take over as the replacement. They didn't say when though.

    I called VZW last night. They are going to get me a replacement Droid 1. The rep told me that the D2 will take over the 1 for warranty replacements. This is though VZW though. Asurion is another matter. The rep acted like if they offered me a lesser model then I could call VZW and they might beable to force asurion's hand.

    They didn't by chance give you any idea as to when this was gonna happen did they? Cause if they are gonna be replacing the d1 with d2 I might see if i can get a replacement before my warranty runs out...

    They didn't know. Lets just say this. My line is (self) suspended til mid October. I was trying to get VZW to send me a Droid BEFORE that time because I didn't know if the D1 would still be carried. I guess when Motorola stops making the D1's then they will supply the D2's. That's why I'm acting now. I want the D1 NOT D2.

    Really... I'm sure this has probably been discussed in another thread, but why wouldn't you want the newest? Are there any reasons the D1 is better than the D2?

    2 words. "Locked Bootloader". With the D2 I can't have SPrecovery.
    No Nandroid backups. So I want to keep the D1. Besides the D2 is the SAME as the D1 except for the faster processor and improved keyboard.

    Ouch... but couldn't the bootloader be unlocked? Hrmmm... Nandroid has saved my ass on more than one (hundred) occasion(s)... but that processor is 2x the original... thats a tough call...
