    The Droid Failure

    This is a list of basics to Mobile PC that CAN NOT be preformed with the Droid:
    1) Can't view a Tiff file
    2) Can't save any type of file (except jpg)
    3) Can't cut, copy & paste sections from an email or browser
    4) Can't access SD card (except through a computer)
    5) Can't call a number if an extension or description is written next to number (e.g. xxx-xxx-xxxx direct) results in Verizon can't connect call.
    6) Can't access call log history or other applications while in phone conversation, must use "only speaker mode" to enable changes
    7) Can't make "one touch" calling (no phone tags); no key assignments
    8) Can't tether (update expected 1st Qtr 2010)
    9) Can't leave a voice note
    10) Can't send a self recorded "wav" file by email.
    11) Can't attach a file for sending
    12) Can't connect my bluetooth "Think Outside the Box" portable keyboard. It will pair but won't connect.
    13) Can't call Motorola US for help, outsourced to 3rd world & difficult language barrier with no solutions.

    As a personal device assistant (PDA) the Droid is a comfortable, slick piece of equipment that has potential to be the Verizon "iPhone" replacement but as yet it doesn't appear to even be close. So, I am returning my Droid, going back to my sad old PC Mobile technology & wait for the "iPhone" to be released by Verizon in the 4th Qtr of 2010.

    I may not have as much fun using my old "smart phone"; but at least I will be able to "work" productively. COMMENTS?

    Just find apps for things, most things i said IDK for probably has an app for that.

    The phone has an app market to do a lot of stuff and me customizable and let you do anything you need it to.

    Farewell...we need an army. Not a democracy full of infidels.

    Some of your points are actually faulty but there is no use discussing.

    3) Hmmm... I can, so I know it can be done.
    5) This is a VZW issue, not a droid issue...I had the same problem with my BB Pearl.
    7) I made shortcuts for "direct dial" on one of my home pages, so I have one-touch dialing.

    I can't speak to the other issues you've listed though...

    So...you signed up to this site and make this your first post? I'm sorry but guerilla tactics will get you nowhere with me as evidence by this hit and run post. I bet you won't even stick around to see the follow up posts. Name the perfect phone for you that does EVERYTHING you want on it. No such thing.

    Personally, I love mine. Like LordKastle said...no use in discussing the inaccuracies in your post. We all know you'll be secretly coveting this phone...

    See ya!

    Or he is simply A. a troll... or B. on the payroll of AT&T or Apple to help submit propaganda to various forums and internet hotspots.

    and btw Who said Verizon is getting an iPhone, not likely IMHO, but there are a lot of rumors about it, and there always have been and will be.

    jmrome, I'm pretty sure most of what you're saying can't be done is incorrect - I'm doing it myself. Rather than go into detail on each one, I would suggest you poke around in this forum and learn. But if you don't feel like doing that, that's OK, too.

    If the device is not for you or does not do what you need it to do, you are free to use what you like...

    The Droid will not be for everyone...

    I found out one thing you can't do on your Mobile PC....spellcheck, the word performed is spelled as I have spelled it not as you spelled it preformed.
