    Wow, lot's of Motorola employees in here... I can't wait to get rid of my droid (it's my 3rd). My daughter hates hers. A guy at work just ordered an iPhone 4s to replace his wife's failing D1 and my best friend can't wait to unload his D2 asap. Go figure...

    I don't understand your reasoning. This was the first "popular" Android phone on the largest cell network in America. Sure, there will be bad eggs but this thread is not for complaining about the ones you've had, but more to respect the device and its historical impact.

    I absolutely cherish my D1, like a mother and father would their only child, but the child is begging me for a sibling!

    Sadly, I put mine out to greener pastures. It had slowed down too much for my hyperactive brain. It was also charging fully in 15 - 20 minutes and only holding a charge (if I only used it as a phone) for 4 hrs max. I tried different new batteries with the same result.

    My bionic keeps up with me and Zumocast rocks.

    You don't need to be a Motorola employee to have a great device. Sorry the Droids fail when near you :) Long Live DROID

    I really like my D1, got it Nov 2009, still works great. It is getting a little slow now, I just got too many apps on it and it doesn't have nearly as much memory as the new phones. But one BIG plus is it does'n have MOTOBLUR on it. I will be getting a new phone soon, maybe, as soon as the latest phones are released and I read the threds and see what people have too say. My main concern is my calling plan, I am grandfathered into verizon with an old AllTel plan. This is my main concern. I currently get 500 anytime minutes, unlimited weekend calls from 7 PM Friday to 7 AM Monday. I also get 5 Friends & Family numbers that I can call anytime and talk as much as I want at no extra charge. I have unlimited data, also. This package costs $65 with taxes. If Verizon will let me upgrade to a new phone and keep my AllTel package I will upgrade, and lock it in for 2 more years. If they won't let keep my package I have now, I will be off contract and maybe just keep using it, if they let me. If that doesn't happen, I will be off contract and shop around.
    Thanks for reading, any replies or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
