I purchased the phone via Wirefly. My contract expired and Verizon kept sending me emails on how I'm eligible for an upgrade. They offered the Droid for $199. Then I went to wirefly and it turns out that I can get it for $50. Weird. Anyway, it should be here on Thursday.
I would also like to point out that I'm a previous iPhone 3G owner. In fact, I owned three iPhones 3G. All were replaced within a 6-month period. 3G was non-existent, even though I live in Chicago where, according to AT&T, my 3G experience should be perfect. Long story short, I couldn't take it anymore. The iPhone use to piss me off beyond belief. Aside from countless dropped calls (AT&T's fault), the damn phone would lock up or freeze on me all the time. No amount of rebooting or resets helped. Half the time, I wasn't able to pick up a call. Needless to say, I broke my contract with AT&T and got slapped with a $175 termination fee. But I came out on top anyway. I sold the iPhone on eBay for roughly $450. When all was said and done, I ended up getting back the $200 that I paid for the phone.
For the past two years with Verizon I had the little Motorola w755. So, I'm happy and excited to give the Droid a try. It has great reviews and looks like a solid piece. I hope that it was worth waiting for.
