It's sad to see it go, especially after putting so much time (and money) into repairs - and especially after being proud of keeping it alive.

You should get the new Galaxy Nexus - auto syncs all photos you take to picasa (and G+!) :)
 
+1'ing Dana on that one. 1 more month with the OG Droid...
 
Sorry to hear that, Mark. You made a valiant effort.
 
Didn't your first iPhone go swimming also?
 
Aw man, that was a slow, slow death. At least she's out of her misery. You going for the 4s?
 
Verizon has the iPhone for $99
