    Just switched from a blackberry perl to a Motorola Droid today. The phone is very intuitive, which is what made up my mind to switch. I am sick to death of my IPHONE brainwashed friends. Their phone is an extension of their arm - to the point that they are rude and can't be sociable around people - too busy typing on their phones.

    My phone enhances my life - it's there to help me find places, look up websites, text friends, make calls, use helpful and USEFUL apps. It lives in it's case until I need it for one of these reasons. I can put it down and I won't break into hives. LOL

    I am an IT person who loves technology. My last 4 phones could get email. I only started texting on my blackberry and I simply hate talking on the phone.

    Droid has already proved itself to me - removable battery, customizable wallpaper and ringtones, qwerty keyboard for those of us with nails instead of finger pads, comparable price to blackberry plan, can use it as a tether for my laptop when traveling with an app called pdanet in marketplace (haven't tried it yet - got this info at the verizon store). The screen is crystal clear and so far I haven't had to use any manuals to look up anything I wanted to do.

    Will be snooping around your forumns for cool facts and helpful tips to enhance my Droid experience even more.
    thanks

    Really I don't think it's dying so much as not advancing. I know, same results in the end. There was lots of promise, I actually believed they would learn and come out with something breathtaking. LOL
    Silly Me.

    kjrugged,

    I feel the same way. I've been bombarded by my brother, who is an Appleroid, to buy an iPhone and that was the last thing I was going to do after hearing all the problems he had with 3 of them. Every time he calls I always have to ask him if it's my phone or his phone always cutting out and he tells me it's his phone. Anyway, enough about his iPhones...I love my Droid!!!

    I just got it yesterday and I can't put the darn thing down. Too many toys (apps) for me to look at in a week, I think. I just activated my Gmail account and now I'm wondering why I never did it sooner. Wish I could talk more, but I gotta get back to my Droid.
