New to the forums... New to the Droid. I've owned an iPhone since "iDay" a few years ago. Bought a new one the day after their initial release, upgraded to the 3GS the day they came out... And finally dropped it for the Droid. I was with AT&T for years without any real phone issues... But slowly realize that their service wasn't that great. I had one small (or no) bar(s) in my office, no 3G unless I went 30 miles south or 45 miles north, etc.
A coworker talked me into the Droid. I was thinking of holding off for the Nexus One, but really like the Droid and the fact that it still has a physical keyboard.
So... I picked mine up over the weekend from BestBuy. They had the best price around that I could actually pick up and walk home with, ported over my number, and started syncing contacts via my GMail, Google Voice, etc. I love that everything Google related pretty much mates to the phone without a lot of hassle. Added my 2 other personal e-mail accounts, and "rooted" it.
I'm still a little unsure about the rooting process. The thing that I loved about the iPhone was the simplicity of jailbreaking it, and adding 3rd party apps... I guess that's where the fun of Linux comes into play.
At any rate... I'm glad to have found the forums. Seems like the best out there for the Droid that I've been able to come across.
