    I'm on my 3rd pearl, upgrade eligible in January. Half of my keypad lights are going out, right of the trackbal just flicker when I press trackball or certain keys. I am wondering what if any the chances would be in getting it replaced. This one is less than 2 months old. Does Verizon still issue replacement pearls? I don't want the 8220 at all. Curve would be nice, your would make my day. So what kind of chance do I have? Snow balls chance in he!!? Or better?

    You might want to check for an early upgrade. Log into MyVerizon & go through the motions to upgrade your phone. The prices will appear for you there. Or a call to 611 would work, but nine times out of ten, your best price is online.

    Also, if you're on VZW, you DO NOT want an 8220 - that's a GSM phone.

    They still should have refurbs for awhile and be able to replace your pearl

    Cut your losses, fork over the $ for a Tour and use the Pearl as a doorstop.

    Or get the pearl replaced again before you upgrade to whatever phone you choose. So at least you can craigslist that hoe.

    I was thinking getting a replacement and taking care of it until I upgrade, then trying to get a few bucks out of it...or sell it right away and get the storm for 99, or something...thanks for the helpful thoughts.
