Bald Faced Bucket of Dont
Interesting to see how long the Motorola Droid forum police will take before they remove this post.
I returned my Droid to Verizon last weekend after 2 weeks of workarounds and frustration.
Biggest issue is failure of this phone to support Bluetooth voice dialing. It just DONT.
Oh and while we are talking about Bluetooth - DROID mysteriously decides to ignore a paired device for no reason. It DONT do bluetooth nicely. After almost every call, I have to turn off and turn on the bluetooth (Aliph Jawbone Prime) and then sometimes (not always and not reliably) it will transfer a call to the headset. I don't know about you but holding a DROID to my ear makes my hand and arm hurt and looks weird 'cause it is so big - a headset is a must when talking on this paperweight.
Email client is really weak - sets up OK but then mysteriously decides to stop polling for new messages - and there is no controls to handle scrolling of Inbox or switch to other folders. It DONT do email.
It also DONT do attachments. Had a WMV file in a message - DROID DONT have flash and the app I downloaded for WMV required a file but the email client would not let me access the attachment to download it to the SD card.
Alarm clock - DONT have ringtones. Default app has 6 crummy ringtones you could find on a decades old cell phone. Why bother providing such a weak app by default. Notably the APP market does have some nice Alarm apps though.
The virtual keyboard has no scrolling capability - it DONT scroll. I was told you have to touch the screen to move the cursor. Try doing this with 240lb man fingers in a userid or password field on a web site! Also when you are done entering something where is the Done or Enter key?
How about that browser - it DONT do HTTPS. I was able to get a few sites with the Opera mini download but could never access my remote DVR programming site. I could do this even on a dumb phone before.
Good thing I don't use Rhapsody because Droid DONT do Rhapsody.
Tried to use the Google map to find something - it found it fine (this IS a great app) - but when I asked to navigate all I got was a message saying - FINDING GPS. OK this could be related to a cloudy night but my old navigator program (VZ Navigator) never failed to locate GPS on my dumb phone.
After spending 2 hours on the phone with Support on these and other issues - for which there was no resolution - the support rep said I should get a Blackberry. I did and so far I have none of these same issues.
