    Don't install leaks or delete bloatware on your Motorola phone, let me tell you that much. You will be spending hours with rsd lite trying to get your phone back on the update path when the next update comes out. I wish nothing but the worst upon Motorola :mad:

    I think you'll have to pry it from our "cold dead hands"! We are already fighting over it in the office. Maybe when the dust settles you can swoop in and "vultch" it. LOL

    Seriously though... we are excited to be sharing an exclusive with you guys today!

    Droid 3 is free at a lot online websites just look around. It's a good buy if you won't get 4G in your area for a while.

    I am kind of wishing I had waited for the 4. It looks sweet. I am not one of those that has to have a keyboard, in fact I probably wouldn't use it all that much but having it and not needing it is better than not having it.

    That thing look sweet!

    That's why I like a physical keyboard phone. I hardly use mine on my D1, but when I do, I love it.

    Actually people are spreading rumors about a d4maxx, which would be out in April, then the DE version which would be out in June. So the D5 will be August or later....
    IF there is a d4maxx, etc. These "rumors" came out because it's the razr with a keyboard and so, why wouldn't Moto do the same line up.

    Besides ins't the Galaxy SIII "rumored" to come out in April/May? And other phones would be out that would have better specs. So Moto would be a fool to release any other D4 version. Or a D5 that didn't make the grade. But... who knows...

    But I'm not waiting.dancedroid

    Wishing "nothing but the worst upon" anyone is frowned upon both here and in society in general. Please refrain and if you must - keep your ill wishes directed at yourself. :mad:

    This is the part that really upsets me. Just because it has the same CPU and amount of RAM doesn't mean its the same phone. Now if you could swap the PCB from a D4 into a RAZR(And vice versa) then I would buy it. The reality is that the D4 is an upgraded D3 that HAPPENS to have the same CPU, wireless chipset, and amount of RAM as the RAZR.

    Thanks.
    That's me with the D5 or D4maxxDE coming Saturday. It's old, very old joke and not funny anymore (never was). Those jokes have been out since the D4 was suppose to be released in December 2011 (well at least the D5 version of the rumor).

    Yes you are right. I am just a little angry with Motorola at the moment and I am lashing out. My comment was non constructive. I will be avoiding phones with encrypted bootloaders and nonsense security protocols in the future though.

    All good here. We are all simply trying to help each other and some of us are rather smitten with Motorola and our RAZRsand MAXXs. Any comments that are adversarial or the like make us feel less apt to help.

    That said, what exactly are you disappointed with regarding "security protocols", and why is the locked bootloader such a concern? With the Fastboot file now available, the bootloader isn't an issue. As for security protocols, I don't exactly know what specifically you are referring to.
