Consider this official notification to NOT get the holster combo that Verizon sells! The POS belt buckle on it is responsible for dropping my Droid into a puddle. I got it out within 5 seconds, ripped the case off, disconnected the battery, got the outside with a paper towel, and tossed the phone and the battery into a tupperware container full of rice.
Welp. It's two days later. Phone seems dry.
I put the battery in (it wad dead, anyways) and plug the phone in. Salvation! The droid logo comes up...
and stays up....
and vibrates a time or two
and goes black.
Yank the battery and try again..
The camera LED comes on
Goes out again.. then.. nothing.
Currently, my Droid is completely inert if plugged in while the battery is inserted. If you try with the battery out, the white led next to the usb port flickers on and off about twice a second.
I take that to mean this phone is toast, and unrecoverable?
Welp. That leads me to my next question.
I'm in the market for a new android phone. I less-than-three the Droid, it's my favorite phone of all time. I'd buy a new one if necessary.. but I thought I'd ask if there are any newer ones out there that people recommend.
I've eliminated a few of the obvious choices straight off.
* Droid X
* LG Ally
Screwed up keyboard (Z X C V -space- B N M). Why couldn't they have lengthened the phone by a couple of centimeters and added another row!?
Basically, I *need* my keyboard. Half of the games on my droid are emulated through Gameboid and the like, and having a touch screen only isn't going to cut it. Even swype isn't quite good enough.
Any ideas, folks? Thanks!
