1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Well folks,

    I am making the move away from my faithful D1 as well. My wife wants Android and the upgrade price/bogo offer on the D3 was too good to pass up.

    I wanted to take a moment to thank all the great people on the DC team (and those in the forum that contribute to its greatness) for everything they have done (before joining Woodyman over in the D3 forum)

    Woodyman - Thanks for everything you've given to the D1 community from SD to DC, it's always been great stuff that ran well. Thanks for answering my questions (no matter how noob they were) and staying in touch with your users.

    Davros - Thanks for everything from Metickmod themes, to GimpSquad to your involvement here. Thanks for letting me beta test your themes and for putting up with my dumb/annoying questions. You don't know how much I appreciate all of this.

    Swallisa - Thanks for everything you do to help make DC what it is.

    others:

    guidot - Thanks for being such a great support person and for all the testing you do for Davros.

    jayR83 - Thanks for your awesome themes and your responsiveness to questions.

    buckmarble - Thanks for your ports. Good ROMs need themes and you're really hooking people up.


    I'm gonna miss you guys, but hopefully one day we'll meet again. Woody, have you unlocked the 3 yet? LOL I'll probably be around now and then to watch the progression here. Plus My D1 is going into retirement with DC on it baby!

    You are welcome my man! I'm not going to retire my d1 until it dies. When I upgrade I'm adding another line($15 with my work discount) and puting it on it. Can bear the thought of not having it!

    I became worried yesterday because my power on/off key feels like it lost its spring. I'm hoping I won't be saying goodbye. What is the typical response from Verizon when a subscriber with a Droid bought on day one does a mechanical death?

    VBHOKIEFAN was your deal only possible because of BYGO? I am assuming that most of us will be able to upgrade soon. When does soon kick in?

    If anyone reading has the same problem I would like to hear what your experience has been with the. power button.

    If you really want to keep your d1 you could file an insurance claim or pick one up off of ebay or craigslist. Pretty sure vzw isn't selling them anymore and the factory warranty will have run out on you.

    Well, it seems to be a sad day in the d1 world. I had to take advantage of the bogo today also because my wife phone got drowned in bubbles. No worries though. Going to keep the support going for themes on my end!

    Don't have it yet. It will arrive Tuesday. Messing around with it at the store, it seems like a very solid phone. Smooth interface and the physical build seems build well. I used the x2 right next to it and it was a dog compared to the d3.

    My thoughts exactly! One of my main reasons I decided to go with it.

    I just jumped on the D3 bogo offer after playing around with it in the store today...$149.99 with my credits and upgrades online. Can't wait to get 'em.

    I'm going to miss DC11... it's set up perfect too :(

    What I did was install Button Remapper to allow me to make the volume down button act like the power button. The only time I need to use the power button is in recovery.

    I also realized that I can access the prior menu (go up one menu) in recovery by using the back button. So the half dead power button doesn't seem to be the death of my Droid.
