    When I first got my Droid a few months ago I thought it was the coolest gadget I have ever purchased. I'm 50+ years old, have been working in electronic and software engineering for over 30 years and technology has never intimidated me. I love the latest and greatest. But I think I know CRAP when I see it. Hope to either put my mind at ease or get motivated to move elsewhere with my Verizon/Google Droid.

    Welcome to the forum. What issues are you having? Are you rooted?

    Well you should browse the app store for widgets and apps that make your phone yours.There are apps for everything I have ever searched for and by getting new things to make my phone a little cooler I have slowly fallen deeply in love with my d2.My grandmother went and got a droid after I was flaunting mine and it took about two months to adjust to the new technology but just from avid use and personalization it has become a part of her almost(literally it is starting to fuse with her palm).

    Why are you unhappy with the Droid 2?

    I love the speed (beats my Droid running Project Elite with an overclocked Slayhers Kernel), the battery life, and the improved keyboard, but that's it.

    The numerous changes to the graphics in the OS don't appeal to me (eg lockscreen sliders), and I don't like the blur at all.

    But most important, callers frequently lose all sound from me during the call -- a problem I never had with my Droid. This might be a hardware problem as it seems to happen whenever I hold the phone anywhere but the bottom while talking on it.

    Go into settings:
    -Sound

    scroll down and click media audio effects

    - click phone speaker

    -click equalizer

    - and adjust it from extreme bass to something else.

    That helped to fix my phone quality alot.

    Also to get rid of blur get ADW from the market. I did that and my droid 2 gained alot in performance.
