hi Allied. i started to have the very same problem last week with my droid 3. Now my phone does not work at all. this seems to be an ongoing problem within the droid 3 community. i have read many people complaining of the same problems. it seems that Verizon is not acknowledging this wide spread issue. I'm looking to get a replacement but i do not want to get a refurbished droid 3 back because whatever the issue is not being fixed. i just want t know if their are any other phones that can be sent as a replacement instead of receiving another phone with issues?
