    My name is Andrew and I am pretty new to the droid. I am an old I-Phone user and my wife and I are both super stoked about the functionality and service we get with our Verizon Motorola D1s. Looking forward to doing some crazy stuff like rooting and overclocking and that type of fun jazz.

    Welcome! Like you, I'm a former iPhone user. Very glad I switched back to VZW and purchased a Droid.

    Check out the FAQ and Droid sections in the Forum.

    Welcome to the Dark Side. Now, your fun will really begin. Flash a rom and perhaps a theme.

    Update!!!

    Okay so I have completely geeked out over here and rooted the phone, installed the CyanogenMod 6.0 ROM with the smoked glass-esque theme. I am totally loving my phone! Now to look into overclocking and boot logos....
