Motorola Droid 2: Free Handset from Verizon – Find out how

We have some good news to report now, as it has been confirmed that some Verizon Wireless customers are receiving a free Motorola Droid 2 handset, as a replacement for faulty Droid 1 devices.

The question is though – has it happened to you? We know it is definitely happening, as Droid-Life has posted the very letter that Verizon are currently sending out to customers, which apologies over shipment issues for the original Droid.

Here is what Verizon are telling customers: ”We apologize for the inconvenience as you have waited for your replacement Droid 1 (A855) to arrive. Due to a shortage in supply of the Droid 1 replacement devices, we have upgraded you to a brand new Droid 2 A955 device.”

How exciting is that? We’d love to get that letter from Verizon in the post. Just don’t go braking your original Droid on purpose, okay?

Can any of our readers confirm that they have received a free Droid 2 from Verizon?

Then he gave me a speech about how I should never install android updates lol I was like ok sir. So they are shipping us two new devices. He said it was of courtesy to… Read more »


I've been having problems with my Droid, so I just went to the verizon store today to see if they would replace it for me. They said I would be getting a refurbished Droid in 2 days. Think there is any chance I'll get a Droid 2?


Yes. I received a new Droid 2 with that letter on August 31 as a replacement for my faulty Droid. I had gone to my local Verizon store on Sunday, and at that time they did not tell me I would receive a Droid 2, but said that due to stock outs at the warehouse that it would arrive in 4-5 days versus the normal 2. So I was very happily surprised!


I received my new DROID 2 with the same letter yesterday. I had only waited 4 days for the replacement.
