    Hello
    Well i love my Droid but I seem to have a problem. When I first got the phone what made me get it was that I was told it would work in Malasia. Now I find out it wont plus my gps wont work there either. I am going there for a monh for work. Apparently I can go this weekend Verzon said I could look at the Touch. My question is what are the major things that I will miss that the Touch doesnt have ?I like the the google navigation on the droid I dont know what I can put on the Touch or if its comparable, So if you was me would you stick with the Droid buy a separate gps and get a gsm phone from Verizon and pay the roaming etc fees. or see if you could trade in for the global phone Htc touch pro 2? Thanks for any help.:icon_eek:

    Your GPS on the droid will work. Though you may not get navigation in Malasia and you may have to cache the maps. I would keep the Droid. Are you going to be there indefinitely?

    I'm not sure off hand, but there have been lots of threads about caching maps in case you're somewhere where you don't have a signal. Search the threads.
