    Hiya! Exited to get myself a droid x Monday! I know there are new phones coming soon but I really like
    The x form factor and everything it has to offer.. I'm a bit leery on motoblur though, is there a way to go stock android? Does anyone know what the add a line price of the x would be? I tried loading Vzw website on my phone
    But it's a little slow for it. Any good cases at a retailer I can pick up? I want to protect it from day 1. Also, what version of android is it running?

    Thanks!

    welcome to the droid family!

    droid x comes with motoblur running 2.2.1 android. u can definitely run stock android on this phone as there are many roms to choose from. just beware this phone has a locked bootloader meaning u cant run 2.3 until motorola feels like u should have it. i cant help u with the adding a line thing but as for a case and a screen protecto i recommend ebay and take my advice dont buy any accessories from the verizon store, they rip u off and dont have much variety. i bought this phone on launch day and it has not one single scratch on it (knock on wood)

    I have a Droid 1 and a Droid 2 and neither one of them have a scratch on them. Motorola constructed the Droid well for durability IMHO. I have heard of some people having issues with things like loose keyboards (not an issue for you) but the X is a pretty solid phone. Enjoy, and if you need some help you know where we are at.

    It might even be a good idea to buy the phone somewhere other than Verizon, unless you like to pay full price. For example: At Costco you pay less, get an accessory pack, and have a 90 day return policy.

    Just something to think about.

    Enjoy your DX! Second on Ebay is the best place to get a case. I've had mine for a couple of months and don't have any regrets. The big phones coming out are going to be 4G and I am worried that they will have limited contracts. I am not rooted or romed and my phone looks and runs pretty much like my D1 so I don't think that you have to do any BLUR if you don't want it. It does have a bunch of stuff that Moto/VZ put on it but I would rather ignore the stuff in the drawer than fool with the OS.

    I love my X running with the ApeX ROM, if you get it, check out rooting to get stock android. How-to link in my signature. :D

    The 90 day return policy is good, the accessory pack is garbage. 1) cheap universal wired earpiece, universal no name car charger, and a no name leather case.

    Perhaps but its better than the "nothing" that Verizon gives you... :)

    Plus lower price and better return policy!

    I'm using a TPU slip on case from eBay. Cost is around $5, and it's slightly raised around the front to offer a little bit of screen protection in case you drop it. Comes off and slips on easily, since I use GPS daily and need to remove the case to insert into the Car Mount.
