    We’ve gotten reports that Asurion’s stopped replacing broken Motorola Droids with non-broken Motorola Droids. Instead, they’ve been replacing them with the HTC Droid Eris, the Motorola Devour, or the LG Ally. I’ve never been one to be wary of device insurance – surely they must have enough stock to cover you should your investment ever [...]

    I've said time and time again...just insure through your regular insurance company.

    The guy who started the thread on the Droid forum said that after he called the corporate office, they gave him a Droid.

    Yeah-I just had a battle with Asurion over a wet Motorola Droid-they first said they didn't have any-tried to offer lower end device-when I quoted the paragraph out of their brochure about picking up replacement device at Verizon, they suddenly found one-how amazing!

    I had to call today and I had no problem getting a new droid replacement. I asked if i was getting the exact model that I currently have and the rep said yes. I mentioned about hearing news that they were no longer offering a Motorola droid for a Motorola droid. The rep said a few days ago they were having problems getting new Motorola droids because they are no longer in products, but they just received a new shipment the other day. We will find out on Monday!

    I've noticed that if you raise enough of a stir with Verizon, they'll find a way to work with you. With the X out and the Deuce moving in on the 2nd of Aug, you shouldn't have too hard of a time convincing Verizon reps to back you up if you threaten early term.
