    I went into a Verizon store today to play with a Droid X thinking I might trade up my Dinc for the X (more on that elsewhere). I asked the sales rep if they had a working X on the floor and he said, "No.", they had not put one out and sold all 20 they got on launch day with a line at the door.

    I said I was considering the X over the Dinc (didn't tell him my Dinc was in my pocket) and he said:

    "Oh, yeah, we can't get any incredibles because there is a problem with samsung screens -- they keep falling off of the phones".

    I said, "Pardon me?" as I was sure I mis-heard him. He reiterated that the screens are FALLING OFF OF THE PHONES. I just said "wow" left...

    Absolute moron...

    He must have the Dinc confused with the Evo and the light leakage issue.

    Yeah ditch your inc before the screen falls off and buy the x. Just overclock the x real quick and you're set

    Wow, I hope my screen doesn't fall off. Does anybody know any way I can protect it?

    No, he just got it backward. The logos are falling off and the screens are falling behind.

    Well, he could be right. Samsung MAY be facing this problem while in production. It makes sense to me but we never know.

    Yeah but this is a VZW store rep, most barely know which direction to wipe.

    No offense to any employees out there :D

    Duct tape fixes anything! Time to start a campaign for Samsung and HTC. Send them a roll of duct tape to help with the screen manufacturing issues.

    Interesting. I'm in Boston, so this is apparently a nation wide thing with some reps. I honestly haven't heard a single case of this happening, but if a VZW salesperson says so.... ;)

    I should have turned and walked away as soon as I entered. The thick, bushy uni-brow was a dead give-away that I had just walked in on cro-magnon man.
