    She is sitting on the floor in her work clothes just tapping away. She got the Motorola Dock. Loves the pull out keyboard. Another happy camper.:)

    if I could afford another $30 a month for data I'd get my wife a DROID From amazon.com for cheap and activate it on her account, but when ever we are out and about I have my droid she is at home 99% of the time babysitting so she really wouldn't need a Smart phone for her day to day texting

    Had to get one for my wife right after I got mine. All she really uses it for is Pandora and Facebook. Heck she won't even let me root it and lest me test my themes out on it!!

    This is going to be a rough night. Between my wife asking me questions about the Droid and this place popping because of the update, I will be busy.

    I'm dreading June when my SO's contract is up. She's dead set on either the Droid or a BB, even though I told her the iPhone might be out for VZW by then.

    Her response... "iPhone is for attention craving high maintenance sissys."

    got my wife the Droid and was gonna root but if 2.1 comes out when it supposed to I'll have to wait till 2.1 is cracked. I am rooted running cyanogen 5.0.5.3 and loving it. She likes her phone but said if the ipuke comes to verizon she might switch cause of the apps. of course by then the markets would be close to equal so really its anyones call

    my wife loves to text (on her dumb phone), but I can voice to text a text and do a paragraph in the time it takes her to tap out a word or two. That gets her attention; but she says it's just too complicated. I've told her time and again that I'd be happy to set up a smart phone for her and teach her how to use it. She works for a CPA firm and she's just too busy with tax season at the moment to add anything new to her brain.

    I take it you did the "force" update? Let me know how you like it. I am totally stock now as my wife is with her droid waiting for the 2.1 BUT i am thinking hard about rooting (again for the 3rd time) and getting Ulitimate Droid 9 version now that the MMS is fixed. That is the ONLY thing that made me unroot.

    By the way....my wife loves her droid also. Really likes SWYPE!!!!!

    Compared to Droidmod, the only ROM I've ever used it isn't as nice IMHO. However I think they will root 2.1 and then I look forward to possibly rooting with Droidmod, but for right now, it's great.

    my girlfriend still has a storm, and a little sour that I'm not on bbm anymore, so anytime I'm on my Droid her nosy ass has to know what I'm doing for two reasons: 1. Am I talking to another female, 2. To see if it is something her phone can't do!
    I need to get her something soon...
