Hello just got my first DROID a few weeks ago. D2 Global from Verizon. I find this phone totally amazing so glad there was a alternative to the iPhone. Apple IMO is so overrated, all fluff, little substance. Currently going a little app crazy, not sure if I cam going to root my phone however. Not finding a need ATM. Yes I'd like to remove the handful of pre-installed apps Verizon puts on it that you can't remove however from my research it seems if I root and disable, remove them from the app list my auto updates will fail. And I am waiting for the GB update so perhaps AFTER that update I will root. Otherwise have a wide range of interests from PC gaming to Wicca to clubbing to history. None the less look forward to getting to know you all.
