    I remember when I got my Droid1, I was at a friends house and she showed me hers and started playing around with it and needless to say I ran her battery down so low it had to be plugged in on the charger.I was hooked! When it was time for my upgrade that Dec 5th I went and got her,I was comming from an LG Dare lol. Loved her then and even still now, still rockin and rommin her now on Liquids build. Soon she will retire to my backup phone as she will be at rest when my upgrade now comes again this Dec 5th( new every two) and I'm glad she has a worthy successor in the mist,Droid Razr will soon take her place. Thank-you my beloved Droid1 for hanging in there for me and being such an awesome phone.

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY ORIGINAL DROID!!! :)

    SENT FROM MY OG DROID ROOTED AND SUPERCHARGED!

    This phone is what set the ball in motion for me. I walked into the verizion store hoping to buy a Droid Eris and I bought this phone instead. One of the best decisions of my life.

    I remember the first time I rooted it. I was so scared of breaking my phone... I downloaded a one click method and hit the go button hoping I didnt screw it up. I did have a scare bt was able to root it sucessfully and then found BlackDroid and was staying up late and F5'ing until his new ROM's would drop. The only electronic device that rivals this is my N64. They only reason that has an advantage is because it was multiplayer... WAIT! If the Droid could output video it would be a resounding favorite.

    Edit: Happy Birthday... lol my bad I was too excited.

    the motorola droid is a great device but sorry to say i moved on to what i thought would be better in a lte lg revolution but that is not the case. my moto droid 1 is currently sitting pretty with a fresh cm7.1 install as my alarm clock. but as i am growing more disgruntled with lg's latest piece of crap i may be going back to the moto droid i loved so much :biggrin:

    Memories...

    I got the OG Droid in May 2010 after I got fed up with my HTC Touch Pro 2 freezing up constantly. It was a shame because it was a great phone, other than being saddled with WinMo 6.5. Verizon switched me out to a OG Droid and I haven't looked back. It was like a breath of fresh air. Android was much more functional than WinMo 6.5 and easy to use. I have a Droid 3 now and that phone continues that legacy. Great job Motorola and Google.

    Droid One just means the 1st droid. It's in no way cheapening it.

    I love my OG Droid. I ransomed my soul to get her and love it as much as the day that I got it. They are not building the phones to the same standard as they did when they made the OG! I've dropped kicked it half way down the block (by accident), thrown it (on purpose), sat on it in my back pocket too many times to count, and flopped my truck tire on it when I was rotating the tires on my full size pickup. Show me one standard phone today that could survive the abuse that I've inflicted on my trusty sidekick. Now they worry about weight and make the phones primarily out of plastic. Then everyone wonders why the phones don't last! Give me a phone again that feels as if it is really a substantial piece of equipment and engineered with the forward thinking that the OG was! 2 years later and my friend is still relevant and just as useful. Yes there are faster devices now and ones with more flash than my baby but 2 years out will they have the support, following, and survival capability that the OG Droid has I doubt it! I'll use my girl until they build a comparable phone, then she'll get framed and put on my wall in such a way that I can still get to her easily so I can still fool around with her. The OG Droid is an amazing and ground breaking device in every respect and I will grieve the day that she goes on the wall.

    I got my Droid in April 2010. Still using it, even if it's god awful slow now. Can't wait for my Galaxy Nexus but I'd never get rid of my good ol og Droid. It took me forever to get rid of my old Razr too. That phone was rock solid dependable and awesome and definitely ahead of its time just like the Droid. Long live og Droid.

    oh man, I can't believe it's been a year. I went to my brother's house and he had bought a Droid, he let me play with it and I couldn't believe how awesome it was. It's funny, he didn't realize how awesome the phone was, I did. This was November of 2009. My Girlfriend at the time (now fiance) didn't like it so much.. :p But now she accepts it.

    One quick thing, remember how the OG Droid wasn't hyped at all in relation to other phones? I mean, after it came out, it was very popular and everyone got behind it, but not before release... back then that was strictly an iPhone thing.

    Can't wait to buy a Nexus... I will never get rid of the OG Droid though! :)

    I've had my Droid since the beginning, and even though I'm about to upgrade (probably to a Galaxy Nexus) it's still a great device and works fine. Yeah, it's gotten slower as I've overloaded it with modern apps, but it's still entirely servicable. My girlfriend will be getting it to use as an MP3 player and WIFI only device when I upgrade and I'm sure when she unloads half the junk I've got on it it'll run as good as new.
