    I'm curious as to how many people have bought the Original Droid on it's release day, Nov. 6, 2009, and are still using it to this day?

    Any plans on when you'd upgrade to a next generation Droid? Or is anyone else like me, waiting for 4G Devices to come out til they upgrade?

    Me but I still got an hour or so to go until midnight and I didn't actually pick mine up until Best Buy opened at 10:00 - but I still have the same Droid, never dropped, never bumped...I don't think it has even been held by anyone else :wink:

    Still have mine. Still have the original screen protector on it. Have dropped it several times from the car, and it high fived out of my hands once. Broke the original body case. Phone is still kicking butt.

    I purchased my Droid on Dday, although this is my 3rd replacement as the first batch of Droids had their flaws....if that counts...

    I didn't buy in on release day, but wanted to. I had to wait until my phone died and that was in May of 2010.

    I have a question for you guys who have been rocking the D for awhile, specifically those of you who use the physical keyboard full-time. Have your keys started to raise up after awhile, or even the whole keyboard itself? Mine used to be totally flat when I got it, like it's supposed to be, but as time has passed the buttons started to raise and now literally the whole thing raises up and it's really hard to type on.

    This is a bit off-subject so if it's too far off it can be ignored.

    Actually, mine feel raised - I've begun to notice it recently and can feel and hear the keyboard sticking - I wonder if anyone else deals with this issue?

    i got my droid in february, and got the one with the bubbled keys. i use the actual keyboard about 90% of the time. it does seem like its unsticking from the base. it makes an annoying loud noise when im typing. the space bar along with some other keys have little chunks missing because of my nails i guess. i also have a little crack on the dpad, have no idea how that happened seeing as i never use it.

    I bought a used Droid 1, not sure how early it is, I wanted a smaller/older phone that I could beat up (not papmer) and not worry about. This is perfect.

    +1 Exactly what I was thinking. I'm kinda waiting for the next big Moto to drop.

    I still have my original release droid I'm using it right now. I have never had a problem with it.

    I don't really ever use the real keyboard. Mine is as flawless is the day I picked it up. It has had a body glove case on it since day 1. I am still using the original screen protector I put on it. It has been a wonderful phone. I am holding out for the 4 g device.

    Still loving mine since 11/09.

    One more year before I can get a steep discount, new in two.

    Which is perfectly fine for me because I would be waiting for 4g in my area anyway, so the timing looks to be perfect for me.

    Wouldn't consider a new phone without 4G.
