    I bought my Droid 2 last week, after trading it in from an LG Ally. It's quite awesome!

    But little droidy is sick ): The screen is constantly banding and flickering, sometimes at different strengths. At points it's hard to look at the screen and hurts your eyes. I heard this happened with the Droid X's as well. Sadly, the day after I got my Droid 2, my 30-days (I got it at best buy) to exchange the phone ran up :<

    Is there anything I can do so they can exchange this? They sold me a defective product for $200! D: I think they should listen and give me a working model. Amiryt?

    Also, I'm curious if anyone has any insights as to why this happens. THANKS! :D

    The phone has a 1 year warranty, if there is something wrong with it take it back and they will give you another one.

    I've taken my Droid 2 to at least 5 different Best Buy's and none of them will take it back! They all tell me they're out of stock and to try a different store. None of them can tell me if they'll be getting any Droid 2's in soon..

    My 30 days is getting closer and closer. Is what they're doing right? Is there an alternative? I'm thinking of going back to my old LG Ally. This is just ridiculous.

    I took my Droid 2 that I ordered online into a Verizon corporate store for the same issues. I was within my 30 days, but had to fight tooth and nail to get a replacement. The "technician" said that this was a known problem, a software update is in the works to fix it, and wouldn't exchange since all others are subject to the same issue until the fix is released. I finally spoke with a manager and got a replacement. That's been my experience, for what its worth. Left a bad taste in my mouth. Thankfully, no probs with the replacement.
