So I am heading to the VZ store tonight to check it out. I can get a new phone through my upgrade plan, so the D1 might get retired tonight.
I have rooted, overclocked, run gingerbread....pretty much done it all with my D1. At the end of the day, and after months of playing, I always end up with a default rom (or just a skinned rom) with all of the fancy tweaks disabled (although I do keep it slightly overclocked). I also have my D1 stuffed into a huge thick otterbox to keep it safe when I am biking/hiking etc. I have owned 2 Casio rugged phones in the past and have always loved them, so when I saw the Commando I fell in love.
I have to play with it a bit first, but I may have finally found my new phone. The fact that I can root, de-Bing, de-verizon app, and have a mostly stock android phone that can handle a fall and some rain is awesome! (I hate motoblur/sense)
