    Do you think they *MIGHT* replace it with the Droid 2? And also, I leave for vacation shortly so I'm hoping they will have Droid refurb in stock....

    Nope, you'll get a refurb most likely. Why would a bad power button warrant giving u a new d2?

    I doubt their shortage is so bad that they'd do that. You'll probably get another Droid.

    It's the insurance, Asurion, that will most likely upgrade you to a Droid X or a DInc because of their shortage on the Droid replacements, but I haven't heard much on that lately so....

    I had mine replaced with a refurb for the same reason and the refurb has worked great.

    I asked (mostly jokingly) if they would replace it with a DX and they said they would be happy to for an extra $500!

    Read my new thread---because they did give me an X as a replacement turns out for free...

    The flat keys break in with use and become bubbled up keys. I have seen this on many droids including my own. If you never use your keyboard it will always be flat and if you use it a lot it will be bubbled in less than a month.
