Okay, please read my preface BEFORE reading the rest and starting a flame war. I do not want iphone bashing on this, just other discussions about people have a similar experience like me. Also, keep in mind, I have owned the Droid since day 1, it was the first stop I made on the way home from the airport.
So, I went to the NCAA tournament here in Spokane today, the first session, about 4 hours long (showed up late). Well, this is downtown Spokane, and I have had no other issues in the same arena with using my Droid. Of course I am in several ncaa pools so I wanted to keep tabs on the other games since the scoreboard in the arena blows. (and keep tabs on the 2.1 update thread, hehe)
My phone will NOT switch to 3G, kept on 1x the entire time. I did the battery pull, tried *228, took 4 times for it to work, everything. So, not only can I barely access the internet, my battery dies about 2 hours into it because it was trying so hard to do anything.
To make matters worse, my wife had no problems on her garbage Envy 3, 2 bars 3g. Even worse, one of my bosses was on her Blackberry the whole time without a problem. So yeah I am pi$$ed.
But that is not even my main point of aggitation. The whole time I had a picture in my head of CBS showing a person watching a live game on their iphone during the Husky game in San Jose the night before. I already know I can't get that with the Droid, but burning me more was the perception that Droid service is vastly superior to the iphone.
Okay rant over, thanks for listening and please share your similar aggitations. Trying to take my mind off the 2.1 update! LOL
