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

    So I just converted to the Droid 2 from a long Blackberry lineage. I was scared at first...I knew the droid would be a great system but I was still hesitant. This past year I have converted blackberry and iPhone users, but couldn't make the switch myself. I finally did my early upgrade on the Droid 2. I wanted the qwerty keyboard. I use the keyboard most of the time. It is a little hard to push the keys compared to the bb's. I was upset the past couple of days with the phone due to battery life. I learned that you can purchase an extended battery that stays alive all day with great usage. I also didn't like how everything is always running. I downloaded task killer for that. I also hated how the phone locked and screen timed out every time I looked away from the phone. I downloaded Screebl and it seems to be doing the job! The one thing I HATE is a phone that doesn't react instantaneously to my actions. I am an engineer and can't accept a slow phone! I'll probably give myself the next 26 days to evaluate the phone before going back to the blackberry. I typically don't care for the "fun" stuff on a phone, but the droid does have a decent email push system and great browser. I'm still trying to figure out the social networking situation. I only do Facebook. It is annoying getting the emails in my inbox, having the fbook app notifications pushed and seeing stuff on the social networking app. duplicate! anyways, I love phones and love phone forums! I can't wait to get the most out of my droid! dancedroid

    :welcome: to the forum aggie. Sorry to hear you're having problems. I don't have the droid2 so I can't tell you if what you describe is typical. I've seen a lot of ppl raving how fast the d2 is so I'm thinking you might have a lemon. Hopefully someone can give you some better insight if you post in the Droid2 forum.
