    Do as I did..after 3 inept phones, sound quality that actually got worse and battery life that was counted in half days I went back to my flip phone...

    Good try Verizon but really, when was the last time you received anything cutting edge from Motorola..

    It's so weird that some people are having so many problems, while others (like me) have none... I've had my Droid for more than a month now, and I'm still loving it. Wonderful phone. For me, anyway...

    wow, sorry to hear. Hopefully when improvements are made you'll go back to Droid, or at least a smartphone.

    Wow that's too bad. Three in a row. I don't blame you but mine (number 2) works beautifully without any glitches.

    I'd like to know exactly why the phones were "inept." The vast majority of people here find the Droid to be a great phone.

    I come from the Storm and I can't see how anybody could not love this phone. The OP said he's going "back" to a flip phone. I wonder if user error wasn't the real issue here.

    11/06/09 no issues, Im sorry I think most of the problems that are posted are user error. Get familiar with your device and stick around this forum and Im sure we can work through any issues.

    This phone is great and I have tried the curve/bold/3gs/G1 and I'm most satisfied with the Droid. Of course this is just my opinion :icon_ banana:

    i've only had two problems in my over a month of owning it. Had the earspeaker glitch and it froze on my during a video error so i did a battery pull, but the video file was bad.

    other than those two small problems and reboots:heart::motdroidvert:

    I've had mine over a month now and had no "real" problems. I've D/L'd some apps that don't play well, but that's to be expected when most weren't optimized for Droid yet. I'd NEVER go back to a WinDoze phone again. An OTA already, another in the wings, and root access. It's a good time to be DROID!!

    I can't imagine not having an Android phone after one month with the Droid. The small issues that I have encountered are just a challenge to learn more about it. I heart my Droid too!

    Nothing personal to anyone here just my thoughts that it is not always the device however the person operating the device that cant/dont understand alot of things nor the patience or skills to understand them. in these cases they really should go back to a standard phone and let the rest of us have a blast with these wonderful toys
    Day one ower here, done update manually, installed loads of apps and games, played in lots of ways with it and loving it, very nice sleek fast super smartphone
    I have owned many windows mobile devices as well as BB and this Droid is by far the best is may ways, some areas need work but hey that is par for the course for a new device. A company could take all the best from every phone and make one super phone but then what would they sell 6 months later????? LOL that after all is the name of the game, put out an electronic device then wait few months and release the "better" version and make millions more........

    Stuff like this really makes me wonder. Not trying to be mean, but from a flip phone to the Droid? Maybe just a lack of understanding technology/advancement in the phone???

    Coming from multiple phones (last being an iPhone), this thing is fantastic.

    Sound quality on my Droid was decent when I got the phone a couple of weeks ago, but it seems like it has improved since the upgrade. Now calls are extremely clear, much better than on my old flip phone.

    Otherwise I had no real problems with the phone.

    After having my phone for almost a month, I can't imagine using any other phone. Mine has worked flawlessly. Sorry you have such crappy luck. :icon_ banana:

    Umm ... I have been looking for root access, but haven't been able to find how to get there yet. Can you point me to a link or tell me how to get it, becuase I didn't think they had rooted the Droid yet? :greendroid:
