I see the whole locked down way of thinking to be how they figured out how to make a buck off the tethering and stop people from doing it for free on the new phones.....except it is moto that is locking it down, not Verizon. Any word on a Nexus 2? Especially in light of the fact that moto has said that if you want a phone where you can mess with the system, and not just apps, to buy a Nexus. That statement is enough to make me pretty sure the Droid 2 will be just as locked down as the Droid X.
I fully expect my droid, that I got last November, to still be functioning this time next year. My guess is it won't just up and die. It will either become retired one day, or I'll do something stupid and kill it by accident.
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.

My Droid is 30 days old. I'm still learning how to use it and add stuff to it.
This forum is great for learning about my phone. I learn something new about it everday.
I really like the google voice thing to search for stuff. Works everytime! Well… one time I was showing a friend how the voice search works and he asked me to search for Art Rooney Drive (Pittsburg Steelers) and the msg came back, “are you retarded?” and Google maps came up and showed me to the closest Mental Hospital……..we both fell over laughing…….
I have 16 months left on my contract and won't upgrade this phone till I'm certain there is a rootable replacement with a strong dev community behind it. I don't own, nor will I ever get insurance...I take care of my phones and they take care of me. I just don't see the issue (for me personally) as eventually the community will move on to other devices and I will folllow gracefully and fashionably late as my droid has the potential to keep me happy for a LONG time (at least in the phone worlds space time continuum.
