    There are of course "resolutions" for several of the issues you raised, some of which you even mentioned. But on the whole, I think the support rep was absolutely correct; you'll be much happier (at least in terms of some of these issues) with a Blackberry.

    Simply put, there is no single device that satisfies everyone's needs. Nor is there a single platform that does so. Nor, for that matter, is there a device that perfectly fits the needs/preferences of any single user.

    I suppose that posts like this balance the blind fanboy loyalty toward the Droid exhibited so frequently on this board. In the end, though, the Droid is like any device; it reflects the compromises and choices inherent in any real-world design. Some are defensible; some reflect the politics of corporate competition; some are simply puzzling.

    "Interesting to see how long the Motorola Droid forum police will take before they remove this post."

    Must be tough to be the only one to have figured out this Droid fraud AND to have the police after you now that you are the chosen one with the hallowed scroll of Droid Truth.

    Lose the drama dude and get yourself a phone that works for you.
    No worries.

    And hey,if that cross has gotten heavy, you can put it down now. Nobody cares.

    Actually it sounds like a BlackBerry may even be to advanced for you,May I suggest one of these.

    I have none of those problems except the bluetooth things. Other than that it's just sounds like you lack the mental capacity to figure things out. Sounds like your smartphone was smarter than you were.

    You could have at least used "Doesn't".

    Also, say what you will but I've had a couple Blackberrys and they in no way come close to being better than my Droid.

    Oh, come now. It's certainly possible to create a user profile for whom a BlackBerry is far superior to the Droid. A user whose most important functions involve bluetooth dialing, heavy email use in a corporate environment, and extensive scheduling features with business colleagues is far better off with a BlackBerry than a Droid.

    There are workarounds and third party apps for most of the weaknesses of the Droid in these areas but at best it comes off as second best.

    One of my colleagues got a Droid at the same time I did. He worked with it for almost a month and gave it up to return to his BlackBerry. If my priorities matched his, I would have done the same.
