    Farewell to the Droid and the forum.

    Hello, I didn't post much here, but after 4 droids with all different issues from faulty phone internals, 2.1 bugs, dropped calls, random restarts and many other issues I have made an agreement with VZW where I avoided an early termination fee and gettig another 'like new' droid phone.

    VZW fumbled my address for the third phone and didn't send it right away leaving me with 4 days without a working phone.

    Anyway, they made me a deal and I had a choice of three phones which were free and no charge for the battery. I had the choice of a Droid Eris, an LG of some kind and a Blackberry Storm 2.

    I took the Storm 2 4 days ago and see the differences right away, I will miss the crazy app numbers and speed of the droid along with the turn by turn maps, but the email push is highly important to me and this is what Blackberry is king of, it works great and many apps availible in the droid market are also available for the Storm too.

    the browser is nowhere near the speed or technology of the droid, but for the sake of having a working phone, I am not here to compare handsets, i just refused to drop the droid for some refurbished phone or a phone at retail.

    This forum is great and I learned alot about how to fix bugs, use great apps and make the most of the phone when it worked for me.

    Thanks for the help, maybe in the future, i'll have an android phone, its still the most open and fastest OS out and will be for years to come it seems.

    Cheers!

    lol QFT. I dont get ppl and the "I dont want a referb phone..wahh wahh wahh". They are perfectly fine and yes some have issues...but even brand spanking new phones will have issues sometimes. Its not any different. Ppl are just funny sometimes.

    I didn't know I was going to get this deal, I do not want to keep getting phones constantly after the last replacement phone would not turn on a day and a half after I got it.

    I made a quick decision on the phone, was planning to walk out of vzw so considering the choices, I think I made a good one. the Droid Eris is no great invention either, it's on it's way out.

    after 6 visits to the local store over 2 weeks, 2 replacement phones within 9 days and 8 calls to tech support as the employees saw on record, I think i got a fair deal instead of being out of whatever the early termination fee was and a phone.

    It's a phone in the end, a phone doesn't define it's user unless the user becomes immersed in it. In this case, it was more of a motorola or phone issue than 2.1 or android although not having constant force closes and non responses is nice.
