    When I first read it I expected it to be negative. So it was a pleasant surprise.

    I'm glad you mentioned that New2u.

    I didn't want to start a flame war in here but since you said it first I'd like to comment on it.

    Yes I do agree. I was quite surprised to see this huge oversight on Google/VZW's end.

    I'm hoping the update fixes this issue or it's going back. It's unacceptable and I was told via all the media outlets that this was a business/commercial device that DOES.

    Very misleading to say the least. I'm very disappointed.

    Everyone needs a good flame thread every once in a while.

    Better let people flame in one thread instead of the whole forum, right?

    And I must say I'm also discouraged from getting my droid now because I have to download an app to collide atoms :(

    Number 19 is an absolute lie. I was cuddling with mine this morning at 5:00 am. I was downloading some apps.

    What, is there something wrong with that????
