I am an owner of the original Motorola Droid. Best phone I have had to date. Upgraded from a Blackberry Curve. The Curve was great but the Web browser was very primitive. My wife has a Droid X and loves it. We share a gmail e-mail account and calendar and it works extremely well. I do a lot of web browsing using the Droid as well.
I've found good success with the Handcent SMS app as an alternative to the native SMS app that was bundled with the phone.
I am eligible for an upgrade but since my original Droid is working fine I plan to wait a little while until some additional phones are offered by Verizon, such as the Droid Bionic and Samsung Function.
I enjoy reading the posts in this forum. Thanks for the opportunity to join.
