    Damn you...lol I was just getting ready to share this. Yeah...this is popping up on a few different blogger sites apparently. I'm still looking into it.

    Like I said...we were never told this was a scavenger hunt...everyone just assumed.

    Damn I'll be angry if that's all this is though...

    I think the most confusing part is, if they are just shipping it out to random VZW customers, than what was the point of even setting this up? How would they know if they are following DroidLanding or not. I don't know, it seems a little weird, and it seems a bit off.

    If true, then it may make sense. I did not sign up as I own an Incredible, and just wanted another phone through the contest. Can someone confirm/deny this?

    Houston, we have a problem.

    I would be a little mad as well. I did see the tweet to go to DroidDoes.com and entered my email in. If it shows up on my doorstep that would be AWESOME! (Not counting on it)

    OK, well doesn't the latest clue kind of give us some info that they AREN'T just randomly shipping them? I mean, if the "problem" is FINDING them, why would they ship them to a person?

    It means Houston, as in "Houston, we have a problem". Another NASA/Space reference.

    If I remember correctly, that was actually someone's guess as to where #10 would be too (the phone in question in the picture).

    Yes, I signed up when I first started following DroidLanding. I got an Email confirming my sign up to confirm my entered Email addy was real. But, I never remember submitting a mailing address.

    Yeah, normally I wouldn't sign up, but I wanted to stay as up to date as possible because I really need a new phone.

    I'm wondering if maybe DroidLanding is a mix of both. Sometimes it says hunters and refers to finding things, but other times it says "droid landed" like it arrived somewhere.

    Here's to hunting.
