    I agree. I hate touchscreen keyboards. The one on the iphone seems to be the most accurate in registering where you touched, as far as being the best keyboard I don't know.

    And I have witnessed the periods replacing spaces phenomena.

    Ill only ever consider full qwerty keyboard phones.

    4" screen, dual-core, slide-out qwerty, and LACK of 4G makes this phone absolutely perfect for me. I'll NEVER see 4G where I live, so it's useless to me.

    Lack of 4G is a deal-breaker.

    Looking at the TB I've been wondering if you can keep it locked down to 3G?
    I've always thought that 3G was fine, the only demanding thing I do is Sirius Satellite radio. Everything else is RSS feeds and texts.
    Amazing how many choices there are, is difficult to keep up.

    D3 looks like a cool phone. If I bought it online and activated it with *228, would that extend my contract?

    Regardless of what the model of this phone turns out to be it still looks too much like an iPhone to me. :angry: Perhaps when I get my hands on a demo unit I'll have a better idea of whether it's a good upgrade from my OG Droid 1. Hopefully the bootloader is unlockable as Motorola did say they were planning on making their bootloaders unlockable... so long as Verizon lets them. 4G currently isn't an issue with me only because I am with Cricket Wireless who doesn't offer 4G.. yet. Some selling points for me will be the internal storage space and cpu type/speed/etc. My only real issue with the OG Droid 1 is the limited 256MB of internal storage.

    I got the OG when it first came out. I gave up my Blackberry for it and didn't look back. VZW has been tempting me with all kinds of early upgrades just so I can use my last NE2. I thought about the X2 and then the HTC TB but I'm holding out for the D3! Hopefully it comes soon!

    No. Buying a phone off contract and activating it on your account does not extend your current contract.
