    Hello guys,

    I bought a new Moto Droid as well as a 2 year plan in February with Verizon.

    However, I'm getting tired of the sluggish Moto Droid and I want something snappier. How much will it cost me to upgrade to the Droid X? It's only been like 4 and a half months, but the Droid X is hella better than the Droid... Will it cost me $200, $300... $600?!


    Any help is appreciated,

    Thanks!

    Its more than likely gonna cost the full 599..... only because you JUST got your Droid and your not eligible for an early upgrade. I bought mine in Nov of 09 and I'm looking to buy a Droid X also, but I'm pretty sure I'm gonna have to pay the full price for it, which is wayyyy expensive lol. But I'm not sure, so maybe someone else will tell you different. I would like to know too :)

    P.S. Welcome to the forums!! :)

    Nooo that's the worst possible news!!!

    Is there a way for me to sell my Droid to cut into that huge $600 chunk?

    Or even trade-in? That's killer :'(

    What do you mean? I use my Task manager a lot to kill apps that I'm not using... I usually have around 35 megs... then i kill them all and i have around 70-100

    It takes a while to load up apps and shift through menus.

    How did you make yours faster... what does stock droid mean?

    the speed of the phone... i think the stock (from store) droid comes at 550mhz ... i ROOTED my phone... installed a new ROM.. and KERNEL (kernel is what determines the speed basically) My phone is now running at 1100mhz. double the stock phone speed :)
    look around on the forums..in the hack section and droid section.. to learn about it. there is alot you can learn and do to your phone to customize it and make it one of your own

    Oh my goodnes... that's AWESOME!!!

    Any downsides of rooting? I'm hesitant if it breaks any ToS with Motorola. What if I drop it or something?

    Your task manager usage is the root of your problems. Stop doing that.

    I can flatly say I don't believe you. When you are not using an application out right, Android will sleep the process. The only thing that will keep running is background services. Killing the applications like you are doing is only making the services restart ad-nauseum. Read some of the excellent information on the boards, and if you are still feeling froggy (which you should after reading the information) root your phone, and upgrade to 2.2. The upgrade to 2.2 made me about as happy as I could ever be with my Droid. I did it on the first day I had it.

    Oh ok I guess I'll stop using task killer. I'll read up on rooting my droid.

    If I root it can I still get official updates? Froyo comes out July 13th officially

    everyone has their own opinions on taskillers. some apps are poorly designed and NEED to be closed when done using it to avoid it killing the battery. but hey do what u want..
