    My wifes New Droid arrived today. I am charging it now and setting it up soon after. She never cared about her cell phones before even while I had the next best thing every 18 months. I have had my Droid since December and had her wanting one 2 days after I got mine. She doesn't know it's here yet. I am setting it up and giving it to her. It will be like Christmas.:)

    My wife's arrives on Wednesday and quite honestly I'm shocked that she ordered one. She's already told me not to touch it and don't even think about rooting it.

    My wife never cared about her phones. As long as it took pictures and the screen was OKAY then it was fine. I got a Curve 8330 and she hated using it, even though I loved it. Then I got a Storm and she hated it also. She got a Dare and said the touchscreen sucked and she wanted a keyboard again, even if it was just numbers. So she has never been into high-tech phones and definitely not smart phones.

    THEN I GOT THE DROID

    She started to play with it all the time and she now has an Eris. After playing with mine a while, she couldn't resist. I also converted my best friend, who's wife also wants one now. LOL

    LOL. Well put it this way, I am at work and its 3:39 am. She just contacted me on google talk from her phone saying shes testing out the app. LOL. I can't wait to hear how tired she is tomorrow and I get to say, thought it was just a phone. She didn't notice the phone at first cause she thought it was mine on the charger. I laughed at dinner when she asked when her phone was supposed to be here. The look on her face was priceless when I said it's right there and pointed at the charger.

    My wife is the DieHard iPhone Phan... she won't hear any argument against her precious iPod Touch... don't even THINK about it!!

    But she won't leave my damn Droid alone... she wants to watch youtube... she wants to use my barcode scanner when we're out shopping... she wants to take it with her when I stay home so she can use the navigation!!! AAAAWWWWW HELL NO!!!

    If she wasn't so darn cute we'd have some real problems...

    Cool! My wife still has an old Motorola razr V3m model! She's not one for change. I actually got my Droid on her lines upgrade because she passes every time it comes up. I get a new phone almost every year because our lines upgrades are due one year apart lol!

    My fiancee loves her Droid and her Touch. There's certainly nothing mutually exclusive about it.
