    It is up to you. If you are still happy with your OG Droid, then stick with it as long as you are happy with it. At least until a device that comes out that has a feature you want/need or one that just wows you.

    I don't really agree here. I mean the D1 was amazing....but to be honest the D3 is just as amazing. It is the very best "successor" phone I have ever used. Meaning it is the best "next generation" of a device. The D3 is light years ahead of the D2 and D2G....we wont even start on the D1. I loved my D1 but wouldn't ever consider it again now that I have this D3.....especially when we get root.
    Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.

    I'm still on my D1 too. I've been able to upgrade for a week or two now but have not. I'm waiting on the Bionic but I won't get it the day it comes out. If it doesn't live up to the hype I may also just wait to see what else is around the corner. My phone is responsive, makes calls, and I still get to check out new apps on it. The battery makes it through the day, and it is currently rooted and overclocked.

    Those with a D3 or have other upgraded phones from a D1....what "extras" are you enjoying? Bigger screen? Faster web browsing via 4G? Apps you couldn't run before? The joy of something shiny and new?

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    Enjoying the bigger screen, better keyboard, better battery life, its faster and more responsive, and just seems better built than the D1 in my opinion.

    I'm in the same boat as the OP, except I already have a spare battery. My rooted and overclocked Droid 1 is fairly fast, has wireless tether and does everything I need it to do.

    I've got an upgrade to use, but nothing really stands out so far. I'll check out the Bionic, but if it doesn't live up to at least half the hype, I'll pass.

    Yea I have my eyes on the Bionic too but I haven't read anything that makes me want to jump up and get it.

    Same here. I got a 2nd battery a year ago and switch them every month or so. Both are going fine. I was excited about the D3, but after playing with it for a while at the store, I don't think that I can stand Blur. The keyboard is great, even better than the one on my wife's Ally, with the extra of the numeric row. However, the keyboard doesn't make up for the crappy Blur for me. I'll play with it some more, but I'm not encouraged so far.
