I need to vent - while also asking for help. First - I am stuck in a never ending loop of defective "Certified Refurbished" phones to which Verizon praises. Several have been bad out of the box while others have had issues that I had to live with for a week or two until I could have it swapped out yet again. Problems have included bad proximety detectors, Wifi Radio, Bluetooth Radio, defective touch screen, noisy/destorted handset speaker. (Oh, and my first one on launch day was one of the ones that rebooted without stopping and was replaced.) Three weeks ago I received a replacement and out of the box, it had issues that wouldn't hold a WIFI-Connection for more than 5 minutes, while having aweful noise in the handset speaker (but not bluetooth or speakerphone) incoming only. So Friday knowing I was headed home for the week, setup a replacement. (I believe this is #5 or #6 - depending on how you count) Late Friday - my unrooted and unforced Droid received its 2.2 update, and it lost its 3G service. So Saturday I spent time talking with the 800 #, visiting 2 stores, basically begging for help - since I am now dataless until Tuesday. Several reps indicated I should ask for a NEW Droid, and at this point I agree. However, no one I could talk too including store managers would/could authorize this, even with the history on the account. Finally I did get someone who would send me a new Devour or Alley(?) but both appeared to be trash compared to my Droid. I was told the only comparable phone is the Droid 2 - which after looking - would work, but really don't want Motoblur/etc. If a Droid 1 was absolutely impossible, I would do a 2 if it meant the end of the refurb hell. One more piece of background - to those who are alert may notice that I have been taking part in the "Alarm Clock / Multimedia Dock" complaint. I administer a business account (I am an IT Manager for a small business). Of the bosses, we do have a rooted phone - and a forced update, so I was very familar about it. So here are my questions: 1. Anyone have ANY SUGGESTIONS for restoring my 3G? (I have played with data settings/airplane mode and it sometimes will return for 2-3 minutes) The phone is freshly factory reset (dozens of times over the weekend). 2. Anyone have suggestions on where I should proceed regarding my endless refurb hell - or should I just pray I finally get lucky Tueday? I really value the collected knowledge here, and would appreciate anything suggested. If the rep I worked with on Saturday (S**n) see's this...yes, its me with phone number xxx-xxx-3275. I appreciate your efforts too!
