    Newb to these forums, certainly not the Internet. Anyway, I currently have an iPhone 3G 16GB, and ****ty service. This has just happened in the last week or so. I used to have 1-3 bars of service in my house no matter where I went, and 4-5 bars outside. Now, nothing. I live out in the boonies, so that might explain that.

    I am thinking about ordering up a couple DROID's for my wife and I, and have a couple questions.

    1. If I get the unlimited data package from Verizon for $29.99, is that enough to root the phone and do WiFi tethering for occasional Internet use?

    2. Anyone else moved from the iPhone to the DROID? How do you like the DROID in comparison?

    I am soooo tired of the crap service, and the worst part is I can drive 1/4 mile down the street and get perfect signal with 5 bars and full 3G coverage. Very annoying.... anyway I appreciate the input. Thanks in advance.

    Well I decided to go ahead and take advantage of the offer, and ordered a couple Droids today. I hope their service quality far surpasses that of AT&T, in my area at least.
