    Does anyone know if Asurion has started to offer the DX for the droid because Im not exactly enjoying the whole overclocking but destroying my battery to the point where instead of doing a mini charge around 7 pm to doing a full charge around 1. I even underclocked to a 800 mhz kernel. I also use setcpu to keep it low when not in use. So yea... anyone heard anything about that cuz this aint workin.

    Asurian supposedly has an adequate supply of Droid 1's now. You wont be getting any other phone from them.

    Don't overclock your phone then. Insurance isn't there for you to get a replacement phone whenever you feel like it.

    If you are a heavy user, overclocking the phone will drain the battery faster, it's that simple.

    Making a fraudulent insurance claim to get a different phone is not the solution.

    i feel like it is the solution because I failed to state that I have a replacement droid and dont feel like going through 10 droids like this one guy did

    and we all know that replacement droids more often than not have problems

    Insurance can only be used for certain things and being dissatisfied with the battery life of your phone when overclocked is not one of them. It's not even a valid reason to exchange your Droid for another one.

    If you are within the 30 day period where you can give the phone back and get another one that would be one thing. If you just want another phone because overclocking - which is not even a supported function of the phone it should be noted - kills your battery life, then you don't have a leg to stand on.

    As far as I can tell from what you've said so far, your problem has nothing to do with it being a replacement Droid and essentially you just want a newer phone that is faster without having to overclock it.

    I really don't understand this attitude of entitlement so many people have.

    How certain is everyone that a lost droid would be replaced with another droid? I have had my droid for 9 months and am debating removing insurance from my monthly bill because I am afraid that I will get a phone I don't like in return.
  9. You wouldnt get an X anyway maybe in a month or so if they have no more droid 1's left then you could get a droid 2 but they wont give you an X for the droid
  10. All depends on what they have in their wearhouse. I know there for awhile alot of droid 1 users who used the insurance only had the choice between the eris and the ally

    True, but people who barked enough eventually got Droids (or Incredibles). I haven't had to use the insurance yet, so I don't have personal experience. The screen on my brother's phone has gone out twice now (he's on his 3rd Droid), but that was considered manufacturers defect, so it was done through Verizon.

    To the OP, people abusing insurance is what causes prices to rise IMO...

  12. I agree i have had insurance for years and only used it one time when my phone fell in a toilet. These prices are beginning to become ridiculous because people abuse it

    Yep, I've had insurance on FIVE (yes, my account that I pay for has FIVE phones on it, 3 are smartphones). We have NEVER used the insurance either. I'd love to cancel it, but I know with my luck the moment I do a phone will get lost/stolen/broken (physically) and then I will be screwed. I guess I'm screwed either way though...lol...
