i just got my 2nd droid replacement (3rd droid total). it has like 7 specs of dust under the screen and the back button lights up a lot fainter and a darker color than the other 3 buttons.
these things bug me. is this too picky? should i just let it go? or should i ask for a replacement?

as a side note, i once asked a verizon employee about dust and he said not only is it not covered by warranty, but that it could void it. is there truth to EITHER of these statements?

thanks

I don't think you're being picky. I would request another droid.


really? that makes me feel better. will they give me one?
i almost feel bad about bugging them for something like this, but its annoying especially because it came like this

dust?... i am really not sure how to comment except by saying just chill. You're wasting Droids. I know they are refurbished and all when you return them but seriously... dust?

I've got a few specks on my original, so I know how you feel. VERY annoying!

I think the rule of thumb here is never trust a VZW salesperson. The dust advice sounds doubtful. On that note: I used to visit Motorola's Droid owner page, and the mods there would give you an absurd lecture about "not putting it in your pocket." Of course, their point about static electricity (and attracting dust) was a good one...

Maybe you were holding it wrong!!!:icon_ banana: If you held it right and didn't put it in your pocket, it wouldn't have dust under the screen.

Now that was fun!

But on a serious note, if the dust migrated there naturally why in the world could you not blow it out with some canned air?

could that work? i feel like that wouldnt get the dust out. and since it came with dust, i dont know if it did migrate there or if vzw tech got it in there when they were refurbishing it.

Its alright, dont worry about it.

I would personally call them and make them replace the phone. Not only should there not be dust in the screen. The backlight also is not functioning correctly. If the phone is remanufactured it deffinetly wasn't done properly and should be replaced with out any hassle.

No. And they wouldn't even question it if there are the few things wrong like you have mentioned. The phone will just be refirbished again.
