    Excuse me folks, but is anyone else upset that things promised have not appeared. Tethering, voice dial from blue tooth, flash reader, basic cut and paste (when it's not in a text field).

    And at times the interface is exasperating. I go to contact info, hit menu, share contact info (via email) and my friend who has a droid can't pull it up on his droid......it says it's unreadable.

    I'm beginning to think that now that they have sold their initial wave of droid phones they've quit working on the product. Where are the updates to take care of the failings of the "droid does" product we invested in?

    You can cut and paste when not in a text field.

    PDAnet (app in Market) will allow tethering.

    Wait, when was tethering promised by Verizon? Are you talking about the paid subscription service or a part of the phone (stock)?

    Who promised you these? I never got this promise... I feel left out.

    But seriously, Google, Motorola, and Verizon are under zero obligation to give us upgrades. They sold us a device with certain advertised features and it does all of those things (everything discussed in their "Droid Does" advertising campaign is feasible with the phone. Plus, it's advertising. It's just a catchy way to sell phones. They never said Droid Does Everything a phone can possibly do"... it's just marketing). It would be completely within their rights to produce the phone and then drop the project completely if they wanted. Despite talk of possible add ons, they don't have to send us anything. And the fact that they are trying to give us upgrades when they don't have to means they can take as long as they need to and include whatever they like.

    pretty silly to be complaining about tethering and flash. tethering was a promise for the future which is already available if your root and flash is and has always been planned for q2, and isn't made by motorola so you can't really say they're giving up on the phone.

    os 2.1 is also coming out soon with many improvements. i don't know about the other 3 issues you mention but they're hardly major problems indicative that the phone is being ignored and for all i know they'll all be fixed in 2.1 if they aren't user error or doable with a market app already.

    You don't need su to have tether.

    PDAnet is free, you just have to pay to keep the https functionality.
