    I suggest skipping the DROID 3 and going to the DROID 4. 4 is running ICS and is 4G. It also has physical keyboard. You can pick one up fairly cheap these days. I also rely on slide out keyboard for email and text. My wife has the 4 and it is a pretty solid phone.

    Sent from my DROID 3 Door Stop.

    I am using Page Plus as my provider so I am not getting 4 G for now. Actually 3 G is good for us, since we had satellite for years here at the house and we are sure use to slow internet.

    dont do it


    my advice.... DONT DO IT!!

    the droid 3 is a POS!! I bought this phone when it first came out and paid over $400 out of pocket because i specifically wanted the physical keyboard. let me tell you my experience.

    After a few months they keyboard inputs letters that you dont even type. for example if I tried to type the "super" it would type " supper" it constantly duplicates button pushes so i was forced into using the on screen keyboard.

    HA! ! That works but it is a PITA as well. mine just loves to type the letter " P " when im not even anywhere close to that key. i cant type "car" and it will type " carp" ... it even with the phone turned sideways and im a good texter the keyboard is always inputting letter that i dont want. thats just the start. after about a month of using the on scree keyboard now sometimes when i go to type the on screen keyboard FORCE CLOSES!! it is sooo annoying. i have tried factory reset several times. does not fix it. so im forced to write my sentences then go back and remove the excess letters that it decided to type. WAIT!! NOT DONE!!

    A few months back i realized after trying to talk to someone on speakerphone that my mic no loner works ONLY in speakerphone mode. it works during normal calls and voice input apps and i even tried an app that checks everything on ur phone. says my.mic works fine. but not when speakerphone is on. this seems to be a software or firmware issue. again, resets will not fix it. WAIT!!! not done.

    the phone turns off for no reason... ill go to open a web page and it will just restart.

    the web browser will not even play videos. i have tried the stock browser, dolphin browser, opera etc... i cannot play videos. the phone will freeze up and force close. sometimes it turns off.

    this is just MY EXPERIENCE but i would stay away from any DROID MADE PHONE. i.e. droid 1,2,3,4 , razr, bionic etc...

    i have had several other droids made from different manufacturers and although no phone is perfect this one is by far the worst ive had.

    even the mytouch 3g from tmobile was better than this POS.
    I really liked my g2. this phone....JUST BAD!!!

    oh ya, i forgot about the camera. sometimes when you goto take a picture then camera force closes as well. this phone has trouble handling any sort of task other than txting. any time u try to do anything else it is slooooowwwwww and freezes and force closes alot.


    btw... in case ur thinking i did something to this phone i didnt. it was bought new, never downloaded anything more than 3 or 4 games. never rooted, never dropped in water never abused. phone has been taken care of. just a POS.

    WOW, I think you did get a bad one. So far I have noticed that mine goes into airplane mode by itself many times, and gets a little slow to respond to my touch of the screen but I have had nothing like the problems that you describe.
