I hate my droid, it has simply slowed down and many apps don't work or take to much time it is not worth the trouble. At this point the phone is only good for email, browsing, and barely a phone call. It is a vortex and was the cheapest one in the store and I understand why. With the exception of apps, what will I loose by getting a new phone? Gmail and backup assistant should cover my contacts, and my photos should be on the memory card. Any other options besides getting a new phone? My contract is not up until January. I have been scared of buying a new phone anywhere other than through verizon. But does anyone know of reputable places to get a new one? Any recommendations as to which one to buy?
