Hi, I am a forty-something. I love everything technology. I have an original Droid. I love it but....I have had 5 of them. Everything from malfunctioning hardware to software updates turning my phone into a mess. I am looking at the Thuderbolt and Bionic. I will get the best phone available before Verizon changes into their tiered program. I am hesitant to get the first 4G device since the first Droid was a little buggy for me. I am very interested in learning about "rooting" devices but a little scared. I want to learn about about my device and all of the upcoming droids. I will only own a droid. Also, looking into putting my #1 kid into a Virgin Mobile smart phone. $25/month instead of Big Red's $40. I've been reading the forums for a while and I even have the app on my phone. Thanks for all of the info and advice!!
