    Maybe I'm just unlucky, but my Droid is kind of a piece of crap at this point. USB port will only maintain a connection if the plug is in at a certain angle, the wifi has never worked properly, and overall it's just incredibly slow. I've tried different ROMs and it's always the same story. I even uninstalled most of my apps and turned off sync, and the thing is still slow as hell. No idea why it's so bad, as I always treat my phones with care (only dropped it once in two years, and it was on a soft surface).

    Still rockin and lovin the good ol D1. I actually just got an insurance replacement two days ago, I was kind of concerned that I was gonna end up with a D2. Thank god they sent me a D1 instead. I had it rooted with a rom installed in 15 minutes cuz the old stock unrooted froyo just wasn't cuttin it!

    Still living the OGD life. VZW has nothing that I want. Waiting for Vigor or Prime as my next phone.

    I think I'm holding out hop that Verizon releases something that is pure Android. Like I said earlier, hopefully that's the Prime.

    My first D1's screen wouldn't show any image but i can see the backlight and back/home/etc buttons. Just got my new D1 today, rooted and removed some extra bloatware that I never had on my first one. I was expecting to get the Bionic since it broke so close to the release date, but after seeing all the bad reviews I knew it would be a letdown. D1 FOR LIFE dancedroid

    Sometimes I wish I could upgrade this Droid like the way you could upgrade the power/drivetrain into an old classic car. (Big Sigh)

    They will have to pry my Droid from my cold dead hand.

    Verizon has yet to "wow" me with any new offerings. Always lackluster specs on the new bits. Then there's the fact that you can get a phone with a real keyboard, or a phone with 4g...but not one with both...lame.

    I've accepted that physical keyboards are going the way of the dinosaurs, so now I've got my sights set on the Nexus Prime. Nothing makes me drool quite like a phone with a 720p screen. :hail:
