First off, this will be by first Android phone, as well as my first smart-phone, so I hope I've made a good choice by going with the Droid X. The phone should be ready for pick-up in about two weeks. I hope to be somewhat informed when I pick it up so I can get all the essentials out of the way. Anyway, I've done some reading around and I have some questions; hopefully you guys and gals will be able to help answer them. Details of my phone plan: - Unlimited talk, text, and data. - First off, how long would you say the battery is good for? I've read the specs for the battery, and they look pretty impressive, but say I use the phone for about three to four hours per day, how often would I have to charge the phone? - I've heard the phone ships with Android 2.1. Can that be upgraded to Android 2.2? Does that have to be done at the retailer, or can I do it at home? I've heard something about the OS being upgraded by the operator or something. What exactly is the case here? - Should I buy any protective casing on the phone? Is the screen prone to scratching beyond normal wear and tear? - I've heard the network is prone to sudden changes for better or worse, is this true? Does the phone spontaneously drop from 3G down to EDGE, etc? - Any recommendations for extras I should get? I think that will do for now. The reviews I've read said this is a very strong phone, so I hope the phone is good. Again, I want to thank you all in advance for any help and advice you can provide.
