    What is better? I purchased a d2 for my son and the salesman said that if we add a a "dummy #" we can take advantage of a promotion where since I bought a d2 I can get another one free the dummy # is because no phone is currently available for upgrade. So I could also upgrade my wife's phone. Here is the dilemma. I love my d1 and fear droid envy. (Not being available for upgrade myself unroll 12-2011) I will input the fear of God that my son is forbidden to root his phone. And my wife can give 2 ****s about rooting. Soooooo should I get the Free d2 or suck it up and give them as gifts. ? What to do what to do

    The D2 sucks unless it's rooted.

    So I shouldn't have droid envy if I have a rooted d1? You think mine will be much faster? Since theirs wont be rooted?

    You can OC your D1 and make it faster. You can OC the D2, but not if it's not rooted.

    Do you mind me asking, why won't you allow him to root it?

    Droid 2's processor should be much faster even if clocked at the same speeds. Unless you want the Droid 2 hardware stick with the D1.

    I could swap my phone for the d2 and give my wife my d1. I guess that would be wrong.
