Lost my Droid X :( Now what?
Anyhow as the subject says I just lost my droid x at the airport today. I called and filled out the forms on the web hoping for a miracle but in my mind its already gone. I am glad I at least of a keylock on it but my pics will end up in the hands of someone. At least the pics are just general shots of family etc (no, nothing x rated )
Anyhow I had it since October and has been by far my favorite phone (ugg no insurance).
So I am now torn to I get a refurbished one VZW which is almost the price of a new one or go to a different model such as the thinderbolt or wait a little bit until the bionic comes out. Sigh. - where i currently live 4G isnt available but where I am moving to is. Do i simply hit ebay and get a used DX ?? Ughh no wi am undecided... Anyhow my bum luck is now your laughter..
p.s. I did call VZW and suspend the account... gosh I am soo -ooo bummed.
anyhow.. Your thoughts?

My son lost my phone yesterday....we were at an event I was photographing and he took it to watch a movie, put it down and left.
I went nuts on him (he's six) Someone else who was in their 60's picked up because she just got a dinc and thought it was hers.
I would say buy a used Dinc from someone on here and try and wait it out. Between the battery, the screen, etc. I would say the TB is a bit of a letdown.....

Well I hope I am not premature in posting this but the Droid Drama has a happy ending.
Hertz called me and apparently have my droid x as I left it on their shuttle bus. The woman on the phone explaining it to me was not cell/smart phone savvy but I described my phone to her and she replied with all the right answers and also had a funny way to explain my solarwinds live wallpaper on it. So they are shipping it back to me via fed ex and will have it soon. I am just hoping nothing is cracked on it or it has its battery or memory card harvested from it.
Just so that all of you know as I did bite the bullet when I exhausted all avenues on calling the lost and found of the airlines and hertz with everyone telling me "no we have not seen anything and nothing has been turned in.." I went to VZW to purchase another DX yesterday as I needed my phone and number - since I suspended my phone people that tried to call me were gettign the "this number is not blah blah..". Yes I did, I didnt care about the $$ I just wanted my DX. I love that phone.. I didnt think I was going to see it again.
p.s. I did add insurance. Also since I am well within the 14day return I will get socked with the restock I am sure but all in all I am hoping for a happy ending on this. The restock is nothing compared to the full price...
Lesson learned thats for sure.
Thanks for reading and replying......
