    are you looking for guidance? i would say the droid 2 is a better choice than the pro but there are better options out there. unless of course the physical keyboard is a big thing for you.

    Id personally go for the thunderbolt then if you can afford to. The d2/r2d2 has already been phased out in favor of the d2g and both the d2g and dx are very close to their eol dates. Also, I personally refuse to buy another moto phone as long as they continue with current practices.

    @spaz I would advise getting away from moto anyways, even if not the thunderbolt.

    That post made absolutely no sense.....

    Wtf? My parents used to own a mailroom that sold cell phones and they were getting shipments of new phones twice a week. There is no way that's true..... and the sales people have been known to stretch the truth more than a little....

    well you could return your phone and wait or go with an incredible. but again if you aren't in to hacking the phone you could still go with a droid x since that will probably be the best supported phone from moto and vzw.

    why would they stretch the truth to get him to give them less money in both the short and long term?

    I don't know.... they do though..... they also tried to say I had to have a data plan with my old alias (was my moms phone first and she had it for a year so I knew for a fact that was bs)...

    @op about the battery pulls, no you really don't. For the most part vzw people are complete idiots when it comes to droid phones..... look at how many people complain about their phones acting buggy that have said the vzw rep at the store installed an antivirus then when it got taken off it solved the problems. Its kinda sad..... if your gonna tell people something atleast give them the right information.

    I haven't actually used a pro but from what I've seen the D2 has better dev support and is a more solid phone all around.

    that is really just my personal prefference but in actuality they are pretty similar. there is a much bigger base of support for the droid 2 then the pro though and i find that to e very important. also if you feel like you need a phys keyboard i would go with the 2 because down the line if you decide to root and rom, there are no options for the pro
