My Droid is getting replaced today. The touch screen completely flaked out last night. Of all the phones in VZW's lineup, the X2 is the one I'm most interested in. Even though I work in a city with 4G coverage, I live and recreate in an area with only 3G. So, I'm thinking 3G is the safest bet for me. I want an external battery and do not want an external keyboard. Despite the X2 not being perfect, it sounds like it is the most perfect for my application. I'm not sure what firmware will come stock. What do you suggest the first course of action be after I pick up the phone today? What will make this phone operate the smoothest? Thanks.
