Great to hear! My old Motorola gray box could fry an egg on top. I live in southern CA, and it's in an AV cabinet, so the heat from that thing is a real problem. I unplug it during the day in the summer while I'm gone at work, it throws so much heat.
What method / process did you use to get your swapped with the proper model?

I also heard this from a VZW rep the other day, he said the new boxes were supposedly going to be widely available "next month". Many grains of salt were taken of course, but it seems the internal info being passed around is that Jan 11 is the timeframe.
