    My droid 1 was stolen on sunday after having it for just 5 months. It was by far the best phone i ever had so im pretty pissed about it :angry:. It was a used phone i bought off ebay after dropping my palm pre in the toilet after only having it for about 5 weeks (i bad luck with phones, i know). Since im not even a year into my contract... and the ebay thing seemed to work out well so im thinking of doing that again and paying around $200 for a phone instead of $400+.

    I loved my droid. i have an awesome setup in my stupid green 95 maxima with the car dock hooked up to my stereo which i use every day. i travel to see old college friends a lot so im always using everything on the car home app. so basically whatever phone i get NEEDS to fit in that car dock, which i dont think leaves me with too many options.



    Anyway, i guess what im asking is, should i get another droid 1 since i loved it so much? or should i go for the droid 2? or is there something else that youd think i would like that wouldnt cost me an entire paycheck but would still fit in that dock? are there any major differences/improvements between the two phones?

    I made the switch from the d1 to the d2. I honestly feel like the d2 is considerably better than the d1 regardless of the locked bootloader. The d2 is much more responsive than a droid 1 regardless of how high you overclock the d1.

    D1 only because I'm loyal... now if there was a choice in there for the Thunderbolt, I'd say Thunderbolt. ;)

    Wait two weeks to see if bionic comes out... personally I'd STILL be on my d1 if I didn't get this phone free :p

    As much as I love my D1, I am now anti motorola due to the locked bootloaders. Half my fun with owning my phone is playing "russian roulette" every time I flash I new rom on it. :p

    I have a rooted Droid. I've been eligible for an upgrade since last October. For now, I'm sicking with my Droid because I like flashing different roms.

    If rooting and flashing roms is an non issue for you, I'd get the droid 2 and preferably the Droid 2 Global because it has a 1.2ghz processor. Either way it's going to be more responsive and faster than the Droid.

    Depending on the type of Dock you have in the car you may have to spend more on a Dock as well if you go with the D2, I would stick with the D1
