My first had the high-pitched teakettle noise in the background of some calls... NOTHING else was wrong with it. (manufacture date: 39/09) My second also had the high pitched noise, and it turned itself off or rebooted two or three times a day. (manufacture date: 42/09) I haven't made enough calls on my third phone (manufacture date: 44/09) to hear the teakettle noise, but I noticed that it would randomly fire up the GPS when I didn't expect it to (I haven't even tried to reinstall Locale, yet, then I'd expect it)... but we just spent a couple days in downtown Chicago and, just for kicks, I used the GPS to figure out which way we should walk to get to our next shop/restaurant/landmark. It had some troubles pinpointing our exact location, sometimes it was a few blocks off, sometimes it though we were in the middle of Lake Michigan... and just now, on our return drive from downtown Chicago out to the suburbs, it thought we were in Kentucky... I left it on, to see if it would figure itself out, but it didn't... it had our direction and the amount of distance we were traveling correct... but it thought we were offroading through the hills and mountains of northern Kentucky. I tried restarting the phone a couple times. It still thought we were in Kentucky. I removed the battery for a minute, it locked into the right GPS and located me correctly. I know that if I call Verizon support, they'll just tell me to exchange it. They're very nice, but if you're within the right amount of days, they just tell you to do that to avoid escalating the problem. I wish I could've just solved the teakettle noise on the first phone... then I'd be happy. My other two Droids never did this... is this common? Is it a bad sign? Should I move on to my FOURTH droid? Do the android gods hate me?
