Sorry for my first post not being more upbeat, but I'm facing renewal/upgrade time and am really wondering what to do.
I bought a pair of Droid 855s two years ago and have been plagued with problems from about 6 weeks into ownership. The cameras got fuzzy, the touch screen stopped working, the device wouldn't charge, or overheated. I've been through 9 replacement phones - yes, 9. Of course the battery life has always been miserable, and I have taken to carrying not 1, but 2 spare batteries with me.
Unfortunately for us, Verizon is the only carrier with even marginal coverage in our area. We can pretty well forget 4G - it just is not going to happen here.
So I'm looking at the Droid3 as a potential upgrade, and have a few questions.
Do any of the docks/mounts from the Droid A855 work?
What do you all think of the Droid 3? From what I've read, it seems to be riddled with the same troubles as the original Droid.
I have a pretty significant investment in mounts, cradles, and spare batteries for the A855, so if none of those are compatible with the Droid3 and the Droid3 is no big improvement over the A855, I'm thinking of just getting an external antenna on the house with a repeater inside, and going with an iPhone on AT&T. Of course the downside to an iPhone is that the closest Apple store is 50 miles away.
I'd like to hear some very honest opinions about the Droid3.
Thanks, and again, apologies for such a depressing first post.
