    I just bought a droid x. System version 2.3.340 verizon. Android version 2.2.1.
    Question is: Should I hook into my home wireless router to browse on my phone while at home or just use the phone browser?
    I thought I was told when I bought the phone , that my home wireless would be better????
    Maybe I'm wrong here. Could someone set me straight?
    Cool phone.

    Welcome to the forums!

    I use wifi whenever i can. It generally is faster than the crappy speeds we get out of 3g.

    hmm never checked so I may have to later. but I have 3 laptops, a desktop and a Xoom and while at home I use wifi for all with bluetooth to transfer files. Like 13th Angel said much faster than 3G
