    Big Red sent me an email yesterday letting me know that I was eligible for a new phone. I took them up on their offer and side-graded to the Fascinate.

    While the Droid 2 is absolutely a great phone, and I will miss the slide out keyboard, I simply wanted more customization than I'm allowed to have with a locked bootloader. I have many opinions on this subject, but I will keep those to myself. I'm not here to flame Motorola.

    To all of those who have posted hints and tips and tricks, and especially to the developers and themers who put in so much time, effort, and work into making the D2 the best that it could be, thank you so much for making my D2 experience a great one!

    I'll continue to check back here frequently and offer any help that I can as this is a great community that has given me a lot, and I'd like to give back as well.

    Cheers,
    *Luke*

    I second the gratitude. My droid hhas been a nice hobby for awhile now.
    Do you find that you tweak/rom around for a few months and then settle
    On something for a few months?

    I was swapping ROM's like mad on my D2 until I flashed the leaked GB....haven't looked back yet.

    I too am glad to see the OP is satisfied with his move. I too am anticipating switching phone's here shortly but it will be to another Moto.....come on D3 :D

    I actually used to flash quite a bit when I first got my D2... I was flashing back and forth between squidly's ROM, and new versions of fission, and eventually settled with Liberty 1.5 until the gingerbread leak. Since installing the gingerbread leak, I hadnt switched to anything else though =) I did however play around a lot with theming everything the way that I wanted, as well as overclock values and juice defender settings

    I miss my D1. About a week after every leak Peter Alfonso would have an almost-stock-built-for-speed ROM for download. I find the D2 Roms more problematic. But I love the processor. It's weird. I want the D3 and D1 at the same time.

    Just wondering how your d2 got eligibility for upgrade? I know mine was purchased the first day they hit the stores and that was around August maybe off by a month... anyway, when I upgraded I was early because the screwed up and sent me a flyer, when I replaced my dare a couple of times they restarted so I was technically at 2 years then... but when they restarted me, I thought I had another few months added? Maybe this happened to you?of course I know the way to get any phone I want whenever. Not to sound concieded lol, but this chick at verizon is all over me and she keeps telling me to come see her whenever and you know that LOOK? Lol... other than that how did you get sent an upgrade? Just curious, that's all. Nosey? Yes. Very.lol:)

    Just out of curiosity do y'all actually use your smartphones as, you know, a phone?

    I guess if I wanted just a phone, uh, you know, I would have bought a standard phone and not a smartphone. But I guess that's a little complicated for cutiedroid... you see, people purchase these for many other needed features. Some of us do not need to or have the time to talk to their teenie bopper friends...Nuff Said...lmao

    I just got an upgrade notice today. I had no thoughts of doing it... till now. Aaargh.

    I find that I am using the phone part of the phone less and less every month. Kind of weird to think that actually having conversations seems inconvenient.

    Sorry, but as far as I'm concerned the only thing "needed" on a cell phone is the phone itself. Everything else is fun toy stuff. And I am probably old enough to be your grandmother. Nuff said!

    If thats all you wanted why get a D2G? They sell the basic phones for free, atleast with a tablet.

    Because I could. And because I wanted to try Moto again. And as I mentioned before, if I'd known that these phones needed to be rooted I never would have bought one even just for a phone. I suppose that www. phonescoop. com mentions the rootability of Android phones, but just in a passing way. I didn't even know about rooting until I began to read here. That's why it puzzles me so. If I'd just wanted a phone I could have stuck with my LG-VX8300, the worlds greatest flip phone, but like you I want the latest toy too. Guess I'm just not geeky enough for them.

    There are other things on the phone for convenience. Like for example, I use 3G for looking up stuff on the spot. Or using instant messengers for staying connected.
