Default The Horror! Oh the Humanity! The Pain! *Crys*

The speaker blew out on my atrix! Now *sniff* I'm going to have to get a refurb from the warranty department *sniff* because I am outside my 30 day return period.

Please kill me.

Ok all drama aside, this will be my third atrix. Sadly it will be a refurb, but at least I know I will still have a solid battery.

It was the ear piece speaker. It just one day started crackling and popping. I had hoped it was just my imagination and bad connections, but turns out the damn thing really is blown.

Practically brand new means grubby little hands have touched my precious atrix. Maybe I'll get lucky and they will be out of refurbs (I'll just tell myself that) and I'll get a brand new one.

I called AT&T and they sent me one, then they had a follow up call to see if they were working and it didn't so she sent me another one/. That didnt work so I call a different time and got a different person, and he sent one out. So now I have four total

I am going to have to try this. You can never have enough extra batteries. But didn't they ask for the other ones back?

Definitely going to try this right now. How long did you tell them that the battery lasted for?

This is what I told them... sorta:

"I have a Motorola Atrix. From what people have been saying on websites and forums like XDA. The battery is suppose to last a solid 24 hours with heavy usage. It also states this on Engadget's website. For me, it only will last 5-8 hours of heavy usage. So what can you do for me? Could just have a new battery sent to me, because I don't want to have to transfer all of my apps and saved items?"
