Re: Verizon refuses to replace Droid X

Miembro

I am on my 3rd replacement Droid X. If you take the refurb and have new issues, the sooner you call the better. The 2nd refurb they sent me had a dead pixel out of the box. Called up and they didn't ask anything else, didn't transfer me, just agreed to send another refurb that day.

 

Now, this 3rd refurb is having Push email issues.  Other Droid users in the office had similar issues temporarily, but appear to be fine now.

 

Motorolla's forum shows that these issues we are all seeing are common.  Check there for more tips.

Keep getting refurbs as often as needed and it will increase their warranty.  The more it costs to keep us in refurbs, the greater the chance they will either fix the problems or upgrade us earlier.

**UPDATE** Re: Verizon refuses to replace Droid X

Novice

I think I just got the hard {word filter avoidance} at Verizon yesterday - a replacement was setup today without any type of troubleshooting, which is what I wanted all along. I guess they flagged my account with the notes highlighted in RED "DON'T MAKE THIS DUDE TROUBLESHOOT!"

 

She even fixed a problem from last month when I was supposed to get a $35 credit for activation that the previous rep never gave me that said I would be receiving.

 

Lets just hope this is the last of the problems I'll encounter for awhile.

Glad it finally worked out for you.  However, I wouldn't like my account flagged - as you think yours might be; you might now be labeled as a "troublemaker".   I had some trouble with my Droid X at first, and had it troubleshooted (troubleshot?) many times - even had one replacement due to frequent reboots.  I recently had some battery issues and went to different VW stores several times to no avail. They suggested I might need a new phone, but I didn't want that.  I get my work email on the phone, and with every change of the handset, I have to put in another Service Request at work, and it's almost an "act of Congress".  I kept trying to fix the battery issue, and it has resolved.

I too have had the same issues and more. I signed my son up on my account and we both got the Droid X. While at the store the salesperson was putting the screen saver on when they noticed a bad spot on the screen-they got another brand new one and switched phones #1. A few days later my daughter and her husband also got on my account and they too both got the Droid X. Before they even got home they found that my son-in-laws phone did not ring, they took it back the same night and were issued a new phone #2. A few days after that my daughters would not get the 3 G network so back to the store they went and got a new replacement #3.  Within a few days of that my sons new phone (replacement #1) the speaker stopped working so he took it back and got another new phone #4. Within a week of that my phone started making calls by itself, playing music while sitting on my desk, the screen was freezing, and the phone would power off by itself. Another trip to the store and my phone was replaced #5. I might add that another person was at the store at the same time having the same problems while both salespeople were saying "I have never had anyone have any problems with the Droid X". Then 3 days after the "30 days" passed my sons new phone, after replacement #1 and #4, the phone would not charge. Switched his battery with mine and my phone could charge his but his phone would not charge mine. Back to the store again and this time they sent out a "refurbished" phone#6 as it was past the 30 days. The "new" phone would not link up and had to have tech support to link the phone and regain the contacts. So here is a "new" phone supposedly one of the best on the market and within a little over 30 days the original 4 phones have been replaced 6 times. If the phone has to be replaced within the first 30 days shouldn't the 30 days start over at the time of possession, not from the day you signed the contract? I think Verizon should be addressing these issues instead of dodging the issue with "you signed a contract that we would give you a refurbished phone after 30 days". Yes a refurbished phone after 30 days with the "current" phone.

Loyd when u said about flagging Acc's. Verizon can an will Do it. An it Doesn't matter how Consistant you are on your monthly Bill payments. if U have Enough Returns on a phone Down thru the Years say for Instance you had a V3m you Loved the Phone But it kept having issues an so you returned it. An the next one U got it to had a issue an when all said an done u went thru 4 phones

 

an the issues with them was not ur fault but because u returned it to the store it's considard a Neg. Return. O they'll say it's ok you returned them. but in that little area in your Acc. is the returns u brought back.  An if U was with a company that Ver. Bought every thing on your Acc.that was with that Company is Now with Verizon I Mean Everything.:  As i had one Rep. tell me He said ah

 

we have a few Spiders in the Closet an I said What do u mean he said we meaning me you had a quite many returnes on this paticular phone an i said wich one are you refering to. An he said that V9m an I said u mean to tell me A phone that I haven't had for 5 Years.:  an that So many people complained about even the reps that had it an said it was a peice of Junk. Its still in Our Acc. an showing up after 5 years Have Past.  He said yup an said  I'll show Ya an since there wasn't very many paople in the

 

store he showed me what was transfered from the Cell phone company we was with when Ver. Purchased it. An it shows Every thing Loyd. At the time that happen i had a BB that Had a Problem an with the Mgrs Ok i got a new one an i asked the mgr i said why would that stay on our acc. if its been that long ago an she said thats how the company u was with done there Acc.s. It didn't matter if u was with them a Year or 10 years its all on there an Now We Have it.  An We can use it to Our Discretion on how we Look at your Acc. with Us. That's what She said.  I said in a Freindly Gesture thanks for Enfo. An Went on my Merry Way.!

Has anyone noticed the pattern here, CS and tech support chooses to replace a device for issues that could be resolved if they understood more about the devices and in most situation so many users see the device being a issue device when it isn't, I have had a few issues because I was still working on figuring out how android was designed and any time I asked a question at the store they wanted to send me a replacement device but I refused and chose to figured out that a few items I noticed to be a issue was part of the phones design.

 

Now since I understand the device and OS more I can work past a large number of issues that came from software, configuration or simply user error.  My point is I haven't experienced all the issues that has been reported about the Droid X and tech support isn't helping but to give Droid X a bad rep because when they simply change out a device because of a simple issue that may not be hardware related to avoid attitudes from customer...  Now I am not saying that there isn't a few obvious hardware issues but not everything merits a hard reset and a device replacement but CS are not prepared to commit to a hour long troubleshoot session and this is understandable but instead of being so quick to want a replacement try to identify that it is in fact the device causing the issue.

 

This is just a opinion of what I have viewed from a number of post.
