    Dear Motorola,
    Your hardware is great but your software is awful. The skinning is not only less visually pleasing, its also buggy and bloated.
    I did not want Blockbuster permanently loaded on my phone. Nor did I want the 20 other uninstallable garbage apps you included that all run at boot.
    I am a Droid 1 to Droid X convert.

    I didn't see your comment. I was too busy crying salty tears all over the social networking app suite.

    The hardware is too good to let go. I doubt Moto will come to their senses so maybe the modding community can find a weakspot in the efuse armor.

    In an overly sarcastic manner I had suggested that you should have checked it out before you bought - something about none of those things changed after you bought it. Even trying to paraphrase it, it sounds snarky. sarcasm just doesn't work in writing like it does in person. In person, I could have made you laugh about this. Oh, well.

    Alas I am an impulsive toolbag. I knew it was skinned, I just didn't realize how badly.

    While you guys talk about software I have to take my Droid X back already due to hardware. They sent me a broke as phone!! When I make calls, all I hear every time someone talks is a blown tweeter type annoying ass sound. The wifi doesn't work either!! I have to wait till they get more then I get to turn it in for a new one at the local store. I'm not to mad but it still sucks. The only cure will be if someone finds out how to root the X around the so called "eFuse" we're hearing so much about. If it doesn't get root in the next 30 days, I'm taking mine back for sure. So much for waiting up and ordering at midnight hey?

    I agree with the op. I bought the phone knowing that Verizon is loading this thing with a ton of crap I'll never use. Doesn't mean I wouldn't think it was a better phone without that junk.

    A lot of people complain about this but I love Blur on my X. Granted I came from the Storm 1 so almost anything is better. I get no lag and love the overall UI.

    I'm liking it, coming from a Nexus using the stock interface. Its much better then SenseUI that HTC phones have.

    Thats 95% of the problem. In my opinion you shouldn't even be sold any Droid until you've owned a Storm (1 or 2) for a year. Then let's hear what you got to complain about.

    I want to see what happens later this year when Google releases 3.0, since they say they have revamed the UI itself, they supposedly are not going to allow custom UI layers placed on top of it by OEM's.

    That, if true, will; be the end of this nonsense (to bad the pun only works with HTC units hehe)

    I'm coming from a storm 1 for a year...and unfortunatly, the reception on the Storm 1 is godly compared to the droid x. I'm left scratching my head at how the reception can be so bad on this thing. When I wasn't able to send a single text for 5 hours yesterday I actually said "God I wish I had my storm back"

    It was the darkest moment of my life.
