    Dragging myself into the cell phone age....

    After years of specifically avoiding having a cell phone, I'm finally being dragged (kicking and screaming ) into the cell phone age. When my sweetie suggested we should get cell phones, I told her "only if I get one of those cool iPhones or Blackberry's" so a day or so later, she said "I think I've found the phone you'll want." and showed me the Droid. So now I can't wait to get my new Droid tomorrow. Don't get me wrong about the cell phones - I love technology and have had a GPS of one sort for about 8 years and had a PDA that I wore out and computers and digital cameras and so forth. I suspect I'll use my new Droid mostly for the online stuff rather than as a phone (never like talking on the phone anyway, but I do love the web!).

    Glad I found this forum - it's got some great info on the Droid and should be really helpful as I learn how to use it and solve the inevitable problems and questions that will come up.

    Jim.

    Actually, I suspect the Droid decided upon me....

    I'm being terribly inefficient at work waiting for the hours to pass until I can welcome the Droids into our family.... Speaking of which, better get back to work.

    Jim.
    p.s. Thanks for the welcomes!

    I know how you mean about being inefficient, but good for me i do more hands on stuff, and mainly when things break glad everything is running good.

    Picked mine up this morning, too. Switched over from a craptastic LG Voyager.

    So far so good. Signal strength is excellent at work compared to my Voyager and my old Moto Razr.

    Excited to see what the Droid can do over time.

    Wasn't sure what to expect this morning so we arrived about 6:45AM for a 7AM store opening and found lots of store employees and a security guard, but we were first in line with another customer arriving right after us and maybe one more in the almost hour we were there doing the setup. I wonder how busy other VZW stores were for the Droid arrival?
