    What's your manufacture date? It's behind the battery I believe, it will look like "45/09".

    Just curious if Verizon has a newer shipment in their stores because I want to go exchange tomorrow and want to grab the latest manufactured, hopefully some "xx/10"s.

    Some people have had luck asking the rep to specifically replace their return w/a current production week.

    wouldn't that require verizon to open the battery thing and remove the sticker to view the production week thus basically 'opening' the product and not being able to sell it brand new? i was considering asking them to give me a certain date but didn't think it would be possible for this reason... i mean wouldn't they have to open several boxes and phones to find a date? i dont see that as reasonable, unless there is another way for them to find the 'date' besides opening the phone(s) and searching?

    :thinking:

    Is there any differences that the date effects? I had a 49/09 and my muffle voice problem got a lot better. Now this iis a 45 and the voice thing is back. Def. Regret swap.

    Order replacments through Asurion if you pay for insurance. You will have a brand new device shipped to you overnight everytime, with the Asurion Advanced Devices Warranty. And incase you were wondering, yes they handle manufacturer defects under the warranty, too.

    In constant pain.
    You aren't serious, are you? I've had plenty of replacements from Asurion over the years, and everyone has been a refurb.

    100% positive. I do not have the blue refurb sticker which is typically found under the battery. My replacment Droid also came in original factory packaging (not a CPO box), with an "improved" battery door, original stock charger, and another 16GB SD card. There was nothing in the packages I recieved to indicate that it was a refurb.
    I do know for a fact that all replacments ordered through Verizon Wireless directly are CPO devices.

    Give it a go. From what others are saying though, they're not getting new devices through Asurion. Not sure why I was particularly lucky?

    But if you use Assurion, aren't you subject to the $50 deductible?
