    I had to call back because the text they sent me with the order number didn't have a price. However when I called back the rep told me that it should arrive either tomorrow or Saturdays as it's already been processed. Still can't see my order on line though.

    Anyway I wanted the Droid 2 so I could continue in my learning experience with the Droid family. Whether it gets here tomorrow, Saturday or Tuesday I'm looking forward to it. Glad they had it in stock, no delays.

    I ordered the Incredible for my wife on Saturday and it got here yesterday, that plus the news of Root on the D2 is really making me itch for a new phone, I played with the D2 in the VZW store and the upgraded physical keyboard is heavenly, a much needed improvement...congrats Hook, I look forward to hearing your impressions of it ;)

    I'm not itching to root it just yet. That may take a while, I figure a month, but with the amount of peer pressure I get in here I'll be lucky if i last a week.

    While I'm waiting on it I can do some research on how to root it.

    It will be interesting to see how my apps come back to me. This will make my fourth smart phone in 2 years.

    BTW my upgrade date was 9/9 and I just asked if they would be kind enough to push it up for me and they said since I was a good customer, yaddy yah yah, it wouldn't be an issue. So I didn't pay anything above the 199 plus tax.

    If you're thinking about an early upgrade and you are within striking distance give them a call.

    Hook, they probably watch the Forum and put two and two together about who you were and figured it was in their best interest to let you upgrade :)


    The D2 is really tempting but I would like to celebrate the one year Anniversary with my Original Droid (11-6-2010).......(you never know though)

    I have to admit I already have felt a bit of buyers remorse. I mean my Droid is so darn good. What if a stock 2 isn't as good as my D1? Well it will be fun to play with. And hopefully I can help people a little better by having some experience with another Droid.

    I know they use the same batteries and I'll have plenty of extra. And chargers.

    Maybe if you leave the two in the same room, right next to eachother overnight they will procreate and form a Super Device with a 1.55GHz processor and an unlocked bootloader ;)

    It sounds like Cakes might be on the fence already, and it is quite tempting......if you have to go to VZW bring a buddy ;)

    Because I got a 1 year extension vs a two year. Got the Droid in November so I'm eligible for upgrade 9/9. I had to pay more money for my upgrade last year because it was a real early upgrade.

    So it does. I have one important question and anyone who Knowles the answer feel free to answer. How do I keep all my stuff from Home Run Battle 3D? Can I just pull the file off the SD card on to my computer And drop it on the new SD card? I don't think its a good idea to just pull.the SD card off my rooted Droid and put it in the Droid 2.

    Any thoughts on that is appreciated. I've upgraded Blackberry before with DM. This is different so maybe somebody who's done it can comment. Right now i feel like a total n00b.

    Hey hook did you order your D2 on the verizon website? I ordered mine yesterday because my D1 is pretty much screwed. Should be here tomorrow. Also, if you did order it on their website, did you use the WEBCH10 code? It gives you a 10% discount, so you'll save $20.
