    My faithful Droid got ruined at work (fell in a deep fryer). So I got another one (original Droid) through Asurion (insurance). Works great.
    I rooted it, and (after trying some Gingerbread ROMs that I couldn't get working right on my old Droid), I restored the backup from my old phone via Clockwork Mod / Nandroid.
    Everything works. It still sends and recieves calls, and I have texts and 3G. But is there any other issues with restoring to a different phone than the original one the backup was made on? I guess I'm worried Verizon will think I'm still using my old phone when I already sent it back...

    You are fine, I have done that same thing when I recieved a refurb. as far as verizon seeing your phone, the system uses the MEID number in the phone. this number is not effected by rooting, in fact its against federal law to change MEID numbers in cell phones.
