    I now have my 7th replacement Droid on the way, should get here tomorrow. Hopefully this one will be one that works.

    1st Constant reboots and locking up even after hard factory data reset
    2nd Constant changing time zones and alarm going off randomly
    3rd MAC address changing whenever WiFi turned off then on (maybe previous owner rooted and Verizon didn't get everything cleaned up?)
    4th Speaker started sounding like cat being put through a paper shredder
    5th Verizon put the wrong address on the box and got shipped to who knows where (not the phones fault I know)
    6th Won't connect to WiFi unless you are within 10 feet of the antenna.
    7th (Who knows what my issue with this one will be)

    I asked if there was any way they could send me a different device (Droid 2, or original incredible) and they said that I was SOL. It is stupid that I can't get a phone that can last the entire scope of my contract.

    How have other people been able to get Verizon to send them other model phones without having to use their upgrade?

    Guess you bought the insurance. At this point I wish I had. :(

    I'm on my 3rd original Droid. The touchscreen failed last week. I had the same issue with every other one I had. They won't do anything for me but sell me another phone at full price when I still have 6 months on my contract. :mad:
