I'll try and make the back story short.
Upgraded to a "certified" Droid 2 in January (2011). A few weeks after I received it, the phone started getting extremely hot. I took it out of my pocket and set it on my purse to cool (I was indoors anyways). Came back to it 30 min later and it was still hot. All of the sudden a message warning about the temperature came up, and I had to shut down the phone.
Took it to a Verizon store and they said they had never seen/heard of that happening. So they order me another "certified" device. I get that phone, and a day or two later when I tried to use the camera the screen was black. It was like the shutter was totally broken. I take it back to the Verizon store again. They order me yet another "certified" phone.
Since I have had that one, the phone still gets hot. A few weeks ago, I left my phone to charge overnight and the next morning the phone had not charged at all! I tried the charger in different outlets and even on the car charger. NOTHING. So I make a stop on my way to work, come out 15-20 minutes later and plug it in to the car charger and it starts to charge! THE PHONE WAS TOO HOT TO CHARGE! I took it to the Verizon store and all they could do was order me another "certified" phone. I refused and wanted to talk to someone who could do something more. They ended up giving me a new battery.
I then installed an application to monitor battery temperature. With some use (not heavy), the battery has gotten up to 114 degrees! I don't know, but I don't think a battery should be getting that hot. Also, the phone is starting to reboot itself randomly. Sometimes I have to tap several times on the screen to get an app to open up. The phone freezes and I have to shut it down and turn it back on.
And over this weekend, a new problem has come up. At the top of my screen it gives me the little icon that text messages have not been sent. I've deleted every text message, and as soon as I go back into it the icon comes back up again.
All Verizon will do now is send me yet another "ceritfied" phone. Either that or I can go through the manufacturer. I have told them I do not want another one of these devices since I've had nothing but problems with their "certified" phones. I was also told that I could do a "trade-in" on my phone, which is only $72.00. I would still have to pay full price for a new phone.
Anyways, the point of all this is has anybody had problems like this with a Droid 2 and/or one of Verizon's "certified" phones???
