    I think the author thought better of it and retracted his post, but this whole thing started because someone said:

    I'm sure the DX will be rooted soon. Once they figure it out, it'll open up the D2 as well. They won't sit back and let it just stay unrooted.

    Well I had some luck on getting a brand new Droid but that's it. AHH well. Using the old BB curve until it comes in and lemme tell ya: this thing is ancient.

    Ah, I did see that but didn't place it with scamming for a Droid X because, as I understood it, he meant he did it to get a new version of the same phone with every phone he gets. I agree that that is not a good move, and probably a big part of why phones are so expensive with the phone companies having to figure in the cost of a larger percentage of warranty claims than they really should.

    On the other hand, I did do this once with my ATT Tilt. Something was wonky with the phone and it would either receive emails or be able to use the web but never both at the same time and to change from one to the other I had to reload the ROM. I was informed by three different techs that "working internet is not covered by the phone warranty". I had to take matters into my own hands at that point :mad:

    I got a droid 2 as a warranty replacement couldn't get me the incredible, I thought I wanted the incredible since i have no use for the keyboard, but the droid 2 is fantastic, so many things are better on this than the droid 1......(probably not regarding rooting as I don't care much to root)

    If you have a droid from November and it was replaced with a Droid X or INC would they up your ETF or would it remain the same?

    So I get my replacement Droid and was looking around on craigslist for fun. Someone wanted to trade a Dinc for a D2 because they wanted a keyboard. I thought it was a longshot but I offered her my brand new refurbished D1. You can see where this is going.

    Proud owner of a brand new Dinc!

    Oh happy day!

    I had problems with my Droid, took it to Verizon (on Thursday) and they ordered me a replacement. Got it today (FedEx)...it's a refurb, but looks new to me. It's downloading 2.2 now, we'll see how that works out.
