Asurion Out of DROID Incredible Replacements, DROIDX is Your Best Bet

Might want to be extra careful over the next few weeks with that DROID Incredible of yours, Asurion appears to be all out of replacements.  That’s right, a number of readers who have filed claims over broken devices, have been told that the current option for replacement is the DROIDX.  Now, both devices are favorites of ours, but the experience from one to the other is night and day.  Sense vs. Blur?  They are even comparable, so I’d suggest taking care of that sweet little DI or you may be in for a Hummer with a locked bootloader.

Cheers Robert and everyone else!

    Since Dincs are no longer in production,does that mean they won’t be receiving Gingerbread?:(

    Unfortunately the HTC Droid Incredible was retired by Verizon Wireless, impacting available supply. Asurion is utilizing the Droid X as the closest comparable replacement option. While there are differences in the interface, the two models are very close in features, which our customers have indicated is highly important in their replacement phone.

    I just went into a Verizon store about a week ago cause of an issue with my screen and the shipped me a certified like new D’Inc 1…got here last Tuesday. So this must be a recent thing or these came from somewhere other than Asurian. Oh this was a warranty replacement so idk…

  • http://twitter.com/jdomann jdomann

    Still have my DInc, this one being an insurance replacement for one I lost in an accident literally a week after I got it on release day. Looks like if something happens to this one, I’m buying a phone at retail price :/ I refuse to have a phone with a locked bootloader ever again.

    the droid incredible is made out of cheap plastic unlike current htc phones. If I had one right now and broke it I would gladly take that droid x.

    Waiting for them to run out of droid x’s so that they can give me a thunderbolt.

  • LionStone

    Whoa, my Dinc just went up in value! :) I bought it in Dec. ’10 and used it until March 17, ’11. It’s in perfect condition and just sitting in my drawer…if you are interested in it let me know…

  • Frencha

    I bet the greedy bastards still have OG Droids lying around.

  • http://AndroidTaskForce.com Chris Gustafson

    So basically (If i wanted too) i can get a DROID X for $99?

  • Starhelius17

    Funny–I just had Asurion ship me out a replacement yesterday. I’m not sure if it’ll be a DX or a DI, but either is fine with me. As this would be my SEVENTH DI (it only came out one year ago), I don’t have any special attachment to it, and since I don’t root anyway, I’d be all set, especially if it has better battery!

  • Anonymous

    My original Incredible is still going strong, and no way i would trade it for a Cheezy DX anyway!

  • http://profiles.google.com/bigdaddy2351985 Young Gotti

    Well i guess im lucky. I have a Dinc with a bad speaker and i refuse to get another dinc as a replacement bacuase im on my 8th in 1 year. Verizon representative and I exhanged emails, so once there is a certified like new dinc 2 he is going to contact me and ship me one. Only thing i have to do is buy a battery and back cover. O and I still have my upgrade. CHEA!!

    • Gordon Bombey

      Re: speaker issues… you working around metal or metal shavings? That seems to be the typical issue… tiny pieces of metal gettin’ all up in that.

    • medwa

      I replaced my own speaker with a nokia 6300 speaker off of ebay. It only took $3 and about 5 minutes, and now my Inc sounds better than ever.

        Really? i’ll have to look into that. Thanks for the info.

    Droid X over Incredible any day. Battery life / call quality is far superior on the DX over the Incredible. Only downside is locked bootloader for DX :( so no cyanogen mod.

  • Tootsie Roll

    I had this happen about 3 weeks ago. My droid inc got dropped and the inside screen shattered so I called asurion and they said they had no more droid incs so they sent me a brand new droid x. I put it on craiglist and traded straight up for a Thunderbolt.

    • Lmrojas1990

      Say what??? I can trade my pos DROID x for a bolt?

      • Tootsie Roll

        I guess I got lucky but yea I traded striaght up for a Tbolt. The guy said he liked the X better. Which was fine with me because I hated having that locked bootloader and blur.

        • Lmrojas1990

          Do you know if the insurance will still cover the bolt im putting mine up if so.

            No, they will not cover a phone that you purchased or traded for privately.

  • Anonymous

    And my DI has been on the fritz for weeks now. Darn. Grant it, mine is an original one, but would have been nice to maybe see it replaced.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

      That would be granted, not grant it….

  • Machete

    I can confirm that they are indeed out of stock on the Droid Incredibles. I submitted my replacement and could only get a Droid X. I like it so far :)

  • shamefulzero

    Thats crazy that they are sending out DXs instead of D2NC for the D1NC. i wonder how long before they start using D2NCs. i’d love one.

    • Captain SarcASStic

      I bet I can guess what’s going to come after D2NC…

  • The Stig

    WTF? Wouldn’t the Incredible 2 be the best replacement?

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MUEVW5YGUFS7CPQIUU7B36HSN4 brandon peters

      no way, not a new phone.

    • Rt

      No because compared to prices and hardware the DX is the best replacement than the DI2… it also can be a ploy to get everyone to a locked bootloader type phone… But who knows since all people care about is money…

      • The Stig

        OK but that’s like replacing a Blackberry with a Palm. Total BS!

    • Jamerson90

      Nope. See, spec wise, the DX is comparable to the DI. The DI2 has a front facing camera and a few other upgrades, so it isnt seen as the same.

      Asurion replaces phones with other phones they had and fixed. They dont have any incredible 2′s yet, so they cant replace the inc with inc2

  • Sacchinthms

    Do you know if they’re out of the OG DROID? I just filed a claim today. Is it unless they mention any different, they still have the phone in stock?

    • Anonymous

      the last customer i had to help get asurion to replace their D1, they were given the Droid Incredible and that was 2 months ago.

      • Miketomlison

        I just filed a claim with Verizon, not Asurion (I am unsure if Asurion fills Verizon claims), to replace my OG Droid as the touch screen went all bananas over the weekend. The Tech told me they were sending me another OG droid… I hope I don’t give plucked.

        • Sweetfeld28

          I’m in the same boat. My Droid Inc has had, email, WiFi, and Android issues, twice before. Hopefully this replacement will be a DX. However, the VZW rep I talked to didn’t say where the replacement was coming from, or what the replacement would be.

    • Angry Turd

      yah, I want them to replace my D1 with a D2 while I wait for new phones to come out and I use my upgrade. My D1 is getting pretty buggy.

    • http://profiles.google.com/drftsld David Alvarez

      i was just wondering the same thing. i can’t upgrade till november and my droid 1 is becoming unusable. when u get your replacement please let us know.

      • Sacchinthms

        I got a D1 again

        • http://profiles.google.com/drftsld David Alvarez

          thanks for the reply. i wouldn’t mind a droid 2 or x as a replacement. guess i’ll wait till my upgrade.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=10215724 Raj Bhatt

      I called last night, the D1 is in stock according to the Asurion rep I talked to. Let us know what you end up receiving… anuraj(dot)bhatt@gmail(dot)com

        I got a D1, so its all good
