    I was just wondering how long and how many people will be keeping their droids.

    I've only had mine for a couple of months but plan on keeping mine for the long haul. I totally love it. The Incredible looks nice but I don't know if I like it enough to jump ship.

    As soon as the Moto Droid 2 comes out : )

    I have an upgrade available now on my second line so I'm sitting pretty.

    My 2-year contract is up in November 2011. I won't be tempted to upgrade until then cuz I know by that time, there will be a phone even better than the Incredible/EVO/iPhone 4G.

    I'm one of those folks who absolutely needs a hardware keyboard... and it won't be difficult to top the Droid's craptastic one.

    I plan on keeping it until my upgrade is up again and something better comes out and it hasn't yet.

    until another phone really WOW's me. I love this phone and will probably keep it till past my upgrade date. Nothing out right now has really tickled my fancy.

    Same. With the droid, I was obsessed with it when I first found out about it and kept tracking it until it was finally released. Until another phone comes around that makes me want it that bad, I'm sticking with this beast.

    Dunno, I kept my last phone well past the 2 year upgrade point, by at least a year or more. But smartphones, I think, will improve by leaps and bounds in the comings years so getting harder to commit to a 2 year deal these days. I'll play the wait and see game for awhile. Wouldn't mind having the Incredible, but it's too soon to say if it really is a Moto Droid killer. I'm thinking the Moto Droid will still be a top of the line smartphone for another year or so. It still has yet to reach it's full potential.

    I dumped my Droid after 45 days. My Incredible is in the mail from Verizon. I hated every bit of that phone. The Android OS is nice, but the Droid did not live up to my expectations. Fortunately Verizon has great customer service and is allowing me to send it back to them after I get the new phone on Monday.

    I've only had my Droid for a few weeks now but I love this damn phone. It's a solid phone with too many options to list. I may swap it out for the Droid 2 whenever that comes out depending on how it's built.

    Love my DROID!!!

    I have 14 months till I can upgrade. But this time I think I can live with it. At least I'm not stuck using WinMo :)

    I love the droid and since I have 14 months until I can upgrade unless something comes out that blows me away, I will wait until then

    I really think there should have been an "Until I'm eligible for an upgrade" area. I can't vote with the current selections.

    I generally keep cellphones about 5 years and then get the best phone available at the time. None of the poll options fit for me.
