    I'm just an old hacker that got a droid phone when his daughter upgraded to an iPhone.

    I won't activate it, just use it in wifi mode for web access, important email, maybe a GPS.

    I know that. I was just tickling the tiger's tail.

    But she had this verizon LG Vortex for 18 months and kept getting so frustrated with it she paid extra to get the iPhone. She is pretty savy but had a problem with inconsistancies. Something would work for a while then wouldn't work and she would have to reinstall.

    I have one problem with it. Most of the time when I connect via USB the device shows up as "Verizon Mobile (D:)". It seems no matter how many times I select "Mass Media Device". it won't change. Then, after a bunch of plug/unplug, "Mass Media Device" it might show up as "Droid (D:)" or sometimes as "Removable Disk (J:)". I doubt an iPhone would act like that.

    It isn't a deal breaker for me since I didn't buy it and I'm just playing with it. But if I wanted to use it seriously I would get really frustrated by this messing around.

    In preview I see smilyies where I typed a right paren. No time to fix that. You'll have to deal with it.
