    Personally, I'm happier than I was on day 1. This phone was nice out of the box, but since rooting and romming, and installing custom kernels I could never have a phone that was locked down. I never dreamed I'd have a phone I was this attached to.

    Samsung Stratosphere. Granted, it's no Galaxy Nexus, but if all you want is 4g+ a keyboard, you can get one now for $150

    I've got everything moved over to the SD card with app2sd except ROM manager. I had not seen Link2SD before, but it looks like it might do the trick for me. I'll have to repartition my SD card, so will try it when I get home. Thanks!!

    Make sure to back up (copy not cut) your stuff to your computer before partitioning. Goodluck hope it helps.

    Still using my old Droid too. I've got an upgrade available and have been researching newer phones, but I think i'm in the same boat as other here. There is nothing that really blows me away. I bought my wife (who also had a D1) a Droid X and that is pretty cool. I got it rooted and running ChevyNO1's SS 2.1 rom. Think i'm waiting for the Nexus to drop.

    Sprint's $69.99 plan is a possibility, but not as good as the Alltel plan I am grandfathered into. A couple of months ago, I dropped Charter and got AT&T's Uverse for home phone, TV and DSL. While I was talking to the AT&T sales person they asked about cell phone service. I told her I had Verizon for my cell phone and wanted to keep it. Since then they have been carpet bombing my ass with offers for cell phone service. My girlfriend has a Motorola Atrix with AT&T. That is why I am not really interested it the Bionic. Unless I am badly mistaken, they are almost the same phone. Also AT&T's signal is not as good as Verizon's where I live.

    Uggg. Keep your AllTel if you can! I had them for years, but jumped onto the wife's plan right around the merger time thinking they would go away in this area. Only to find out later, our area is one of the ones keeping it due to non-competition and the fact that they deliver home phone/internet to the rural areas around here.
    I preferred their customer service to anyone else out there 100 times over. They once wrote off over $200 after an ex slammed me with excessive SMS messages on a limited texting plan - and they took almost no urging to do it - they were happy to help me out. What they lack in the latest phones first, they make up for in dealing with the company.

    Damn! I can't believe I hadn't heard about this app before!! Thanks for the tip.

    I have a 32GB SD card, gave the second partition 2GB, then moved/linked most, but not all, of my apps to the new partition.

    WOW! 100MB extra internal memory, and these apps seem to load and run faster - and I can run Netflix and other big apps with no problems. Tweaking things a bit more with the Supercharger script helped a bit more.

    It's like I have a new phone. Looks like I'll be keeping the OG Droid for quite a while - don't think I'll need to spend $250 on a Bionic anytime soon. Thanks again!
