    Because of the outage? Not going to bother because I don't feel like messing with having to get a new sim card.

    Keeping mine for now. Wasn't impressed by the Thunderbolt. Waiting to see what the bionic brings.

    Nope. My thunderbolt is coming in the mail tomorrow :D. I've had it with motorola phones. I've had so many problems with my OG and X its not even funny. Motoblur is crap too.MAYBE if moto unlocks their bootloaders ill think about it. Htc sense looks awesome right now. stock android seems too boring and plain for me. but thats just my opinion. Bring on the lightning :D

    The only thing that I don't like about the Thunderbolt is no hdmi out. Other than that there is no comparison. I even like sense. Ha loving this phone

    I had the opportunity to use my OG Droid 1 next to my HTC Thunderbolt for several weeks. Even Rooted with BB and overclocked with Chevy 1.25Ghz goodness, the Droid 1 doesn't come close to the stock HTC Thunderbolt. Now that I've rooted, you couldn't pay me to look back. I get superior reception, bigger screen, similar battery, 5x the speed, I don't have to uninstall apps to save space, and I'm loving the instant camera. 4g is .... sweet too (upload 10+ pictures in seconds instead of half an hour or waiting till I get home on WiFi).

    Droid 1 was a nice phone. I'd have kept mine had the touchscreen not gone out. But the Thunderbolt is a better phone. Encrypted bootloaders, hostility towards rooters, and inability to install custom kernels lost Motorola a customer. Sure HTC may do it someday, but right now, I'm loving this phone.

    I switched from my samsung fascinate back to my droid2. I missed my keyboard and I just like the overall layout of this phone much more

    Actually 40 GIGs haha I still have a computer in my house with windows 95 that has less HD space than my phone haha. I love 4G and the screen. I'm debating whether to root or not. How hard is it to unroot? and how hard is it to overclock or set it to use less battery after your rooted? I have root the OG Droid before.

    Actually I couldn't tell you about rooting, I've always kept my phones stock. Not that I have anything against it, I just never felt the need to do it. I have heard that rooting does help with the battery life though, and there is no way I'm putting that beast of an extended battery on this phone, so I may consider rooting in the future lol. And yeah you're right, its 40 gigs, I forgot about the 8 gigs of internal memory!
