    Curious how these things sold. I thought there would be reports that it sold out in hours.

    Star Wars fans are ravenous when it comes to collectors items.....

    Apparently not as ravenous with these devices. I wanted to buy one just to hold on to. I think it would be a great collectors item.
    Also I think that most people got a Droid X or Droid INC. Those devices were sold out and on back order for months after there release. I think that most of the people that wanted an android device already have one.

    My wife says I'm a dork, but...

    My wife says I'm a dork, but... I bought mine the day it came out. The store didn't have any in stock, but it should be arriving at my door step Monday :)

    I am new to the forum, and after ordering my phone, I decided to join.

    We have been thinking of upgrading phones for a couple weeks, as I was eligible for my new every 2 $50 upgrade credit. I logged on to the Verizon site on Thursday and saw the R2 unit. I hadn't even thought about a smartphone at the time, so news of this phone was new to me. I was holding off on a smartphone, as I was trying to cheap out on the $30 data plan. This was just the thing to push me over the edge.

    My wife said "no way" to her owning one, but she did get a Samsung Fascinate. She's digging it.

    I was not planning on getting one but am/was a Star Wars fan and I "happened" to walk by a Verizon store at the mall. I was kind of surprised they had them in stock. Needless to say, I walked out with one.

    My original interest in this thread was, my GF's Son wanted one bad, So I helped him get it. Since he is on my account, It's almost like it's mine :p I guess I have one in the family now.

    His R2D2 arrived friday afternoon. FedEx next day FREE shipping. He is Stoked !!! He's a big Star Wars Fan. And an up and coming Android Dev.

    So this means, my Droid 1 comes back into my hands once again. :)

    Mine will be arriving Monday... I will most likely root, but keep the original star wars rom. Just want to be able to keep using all my root apps that I have previously purchased for my Droid.... until then Im just patiently waiting on the porch watching for the fedex truck... Hurry up.

    I don't have an R2-D2 Droid 2 but, I do have a small request for those who have one & have rooted it. I'm looking for 2 of the Live Wallpapers that aren't located in /system/app. I'm looking for the "3D Millennium Falcon" & the "The Empire Strikes Back" Live Wallpapers.
    They're shown/listed in this video
    If anyone has root & can somehow extract the apk's, I'd greatly appreciate it :D

    I had an X and gave that to my brother. Now I have this and love it. It seems faster than the X.

    r2

    I just got my droid 2 R2 edition on Friday. I just came from an iPhone and decided to make the switch to Verizon after seeing that this phone was coming out. So, I will be asking questions on here, and hopefully, people can help out!

    Such as this: Does anyone know how to turn off the facebook contacts on it, but still have the pictures show from their facebook accounts?

    Been having trouble but playing around with it I have learned a lot so far!

    I received my R2D2 D2 on Friday!dancedroid I ordered it at 11:30 central time on the 29th! It is my first Android based phone after going through a couple of blackberries:blackberry:. It is taking me some getting used to but I'm getting there! I am really like the Android system, but I love R2! I don't know if I'll root mine or anything else, simply because I never have before. I have actually been surprised that they haven't sold out yet, but then again I guess a lot of people upgraded with the X or regular D2 came out. I saw an R2D2 D2 listed on EBay for something like $1,200 already! Craziness!:heart:
