Clamshell RAZR Owners Get Instant DROID RAZR Replacements

If you own and still use an original Motorola RAZR–that popular, thin clamshell phone from Motorola a few years back–you might want to make sure that it is visible whenever you’re anywhere near a Verizon Wireless representative these days, as you could get lucky, just like the folks in Verizon’s new TV ad who had their original RAZRs replaced with the “reinvented” Motorola DROID RAZR.

Verizon recently ran a sixty-second ad on YouTube showing a Verizon representative showing off the neat new features of the new DROID RAZR to owners of the elder RAZR, and then drops the bomb by  telling them that they get to keep the device for free. Talk about free, on-the-spot upgrades.  This isn’t saying that Verizon is giving every RAZR owner a new DROID RAZR, but who knows what might happen if a Verizon rep spots you with your old RAZR, right

The DROID RAZR boasts of a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED touchscreen protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and Kevlar-coated back cover, making it almost invulnerable to”accidental” scratches and drops.

Verizon also bragged that, since the DROID RAZR runs on its 4G LTE network, the device will have 10 times faster network speed than 3G. The device also packs an 8-megapixel camera onboard and a 1.2-GHz dual-core processor while keeping the device thin at 7.1 mm at its thickest point.

With the recent launch of Verizon’s dubbed “payload” commercial, it seems that the company is willing to shell out the DROID RAZR at affordable prices while keeping the competition at bay. Wouldn’t you be surprised if Verizon suddenly shows up and offers you an enticing new phone?

    My Motorola Razr V9m which broke on Oct 26th, went into a Verizon show room, was also traveling in Arizona from Oregon. I had a complete replacement insurance on the phone. Verizon could not do anything, the Insurance would not do anything, I finally got a hold of someone at Verizon that would replace the phone with a plastic LG phone worth about $19. I said yes and when it arrived I refused the delievery from FEDEX. I since had my phone repaired at a 3rd party and did get a new Droid Razr on Nov 10th. But if I could I would sue Verizon for having me pay a replacement phone insurance policy for a total of 5 years when in fact they cannot keep their agreement. They should notify you when they can no longer replace your phone with what you paid for………….
