    Talking The day has finally come!

    Hi there!

    Been lurking for quite some time now. Today is the day we were finally able to upgrade our phones. Something about paying $500+ for a phone wasn't that appealing to me. So I ordered a moto droid for myself, one for my wife, and some other phone for my daughter. Ordered them from wirefly and went through bing first, so today the droid's were $19.99 each (They were $49.99 yesterday) and my daughters phone was also $19.99. In about 6 weeks or so, I should be receiving $150.00 from Bing. So when all is said and done, someone will have paid me $75.00 to take the droids off their hands.

    Not a bad deal if you ask me.

    Our previous phones were Samsung Jukes, and we've never owned a smart phone of any sorts, so I'm kinda excited. I don't know how I'm going to be able to do any work at work tomorrow, and I definitely won't be working Friday... I'll be too busy playing with the phone!

    They're currently in FedEx's hand and it says they'll be delivered by 4:30 tomorrow.

    I've read about some nightmares where wirefly has screwed up peoples accounts when they upgraded through them, but it looks like it's going to be a smooth one this time.

    We currently have the Nationwide Talk & Text SharePlan 1400 but when I ordered the phones, they didn't have that option, just the the Nationwide Talk 1400, not the talk and text. (However, there was an option to add unlimited text for some $, which would've been more than we were paying now) However, after I ordered the phones and verizon approved it, there was a hold placed on the order. Verizon requested additional information, so I had to call wirefly. I talked to some guy named "Ian" who suspiciously had an indian accent, and when he asked who I was, I was this close --><-- to telling him my name was "Ashraf", but alas, I held my tongue. They just wanted to know if I wanted to keep the talk & text plan we currently have... Absolutely!

    So now I must wait. Wait. AGGGH!!! Ok, I can do it.

    First order of business will be to get our exchange server hooked up to the droids, or vice versa, however you want to look at it. I'm thinking touchdown, or that other one I can't think of the name right now... Yeah, that one!

    Oh, the agony of waiting...

    We almost held out for the incredible's, but 200 bucks... sheesh...

    Anyway, just wanted to say hi, I'm here, and almost have a droid!

    Thanks! I don't know how many times in the last couple of weeks we were somewhere doing whatever and wanted to know something... All I could say was, "If we had our droids, we'd know, right now!"

    ...and I already changed my mind. First order of business will be getting the phones working with the car. Then I can worry about getting them hooked up to exchange.

    Welcome, and I wish someone paid me to have a droid

    My first SP too and love every minute of it. Wish I was able to get one for my wife but had to settle for the eris. This sucks because when she asks me questions, I don't always know where to look.

    Enjoy your time here... it'll be a lot!

    Welcome, Kias! You'll find this to be a very friendly place full of great people and information! The possibilities are endless for customization for that Droid. So read, read, and read some more. You'll be amazed at how much you can teach yourself by reading the threads here in the forum! Enjoy that new toy when you get it and try to remember to eat and sleep every now and then!

    Here's a great thread about app recommendations.

    Forget the top 5, list ALL of your apps

    Kias, welcome to the world of Smart Phones, glad you chose the Droids and will love them. I must throw out a huge caution to you though. You might want to look at the small print with Wirefly. Lets say you hated the Droids, hated the VZW network (well you already have VZW), but wanted to turn them in under the Worry Free Guarantee. We already know about the 30 day WFG with VZW. How about Wirefly? They have their own rules. Let's say you were 3 months into your new contract with the Droids and something happens and you decide to cancel the phone line(s), and pay the Early Termination Fee with VZW. Read the fine print with Wirefly, you might be shocked to know that they just might have their own ETF policy ON TOP OF the VZW one. Please read carefully because, although on the surface you got a great deal, but read the fine print and see what the consequences could be. I worked in a VZW call center too long to know about unhappy customers who didn't read the Wirefly, or other 3rd party retailers policies.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    Well, here I am at work, not working as promised! My phone just flew into Detroit Metro about 40 minutes ago, and is making it's way to my house.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone. Feels like I've been here a while, since I have. Come here every day since I found it last year sometime. Finally got an account in Jan as I needed to see some pictures someone posted. Just reading and soaking in info until I could actually get a droid.

    I just confirmed that there's $150 sitting in my Bing account under a pending status, so that's cool! Just have to wait the long six weeks until I can actually get to it. (They should pay me interest during that time!)

    Thanks for that link Annedroid! That's an awesome list of apps!

    ...and to my fellow 1600 engine rider (I have an '08 wing), the fine print I have definitely read. 180 days with wirefly, no downgrading, pay my bill, no cancelling, etc... No problem there. No problem with Verizon either. Have had them what seems like forever.

    ...and if I'm not happy with my droid, I'll just come here and make myself happy!

    Thanks again!

    Kias - hope you enjoy the new toy! I really wasn't trying to scare you off, just making you aware, in case you didn't see the fine print. Not sure where you're at, but if you're anywhere near eastern PA, we need to go riding. I was wrestling with getting a Gold Wing before selecting the Vulcan. Keep us posted about your progress with the Droid today.

    Wasn't scared off a bit! I used to be in the Navy, and I never ever sign anything without reading all the fine print first! Makes for a long day when you're closing on a house.

    I'm in NW Ohio, smack dab in the middle of the cornbelt! Not a far ride on a wing to the other side of PA, but nothing to do on a whim!
