1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    You may call me Ben if you like, it doesn't really matter.

    Today, in roughly an hour and a half, I shall be going to a local wireless dealer and getting myself a Motorola Droid. Definitely a jump up; my last phone was... well... just a flip phone with a camera, really. And I don't currently have any texting on my plan, so this is going to be a huge jump when I get this sucker. XD.

    Anyway, I do believe I'm going to love the heck outta this phone, but I do occasionally hear that there are some battery life problems. I also hear that there are things you can do to make the battery life last a lot longer [something about process managing, which I would know nothing of if we're not talking about a PC].

    Anyway, I'm rambling. So yes, getting a Droid later, super excited. I shall be back on later tonight to share my first-day experience, perhaps. XD.

    Cheers!

    Welcome to Droidforums Ben.

    Here is a link w/ some info on battery from Motorolas site.

    *process manager*.....you may be referring to Task Killer programs/Apps. Many believe they are not needed and really don't help that much w/ battery life.

    Well, I am currently happier than most Christmases in my life. This phone is amazing. It's doing everything that I wanted it to.

    The best part? I have dial-up internet at my house, and I just tried/am trying this PdaNet thing... OH MY GOD. It's AWESOME.

    I could cry right now. XD. I love this so much.
