    i will be buying my first smartphone*(verizon)* tommorrow for full retail price

    im trying to decvide between

    Dx

    D2

    strongly leading towards D2 because of its smaller siize and its physical keyboard.

    any cons with the D2?

    any pros worth knowing about?

    i am waking uotommorrow and going straight t o verizon because today i called and after all the crazy stuff on the rerecorded thing telling you to hit a certain number for a ceertain option i ended upon the phone with a guy from north carolina(wtf lol)

    he had told em t hat he c an check the stock of the store near me(route 211E middletown ny) and he said there were 24 in stock at like 4:30 today he said i will have no problem getitng one tommorrow morning that he doesnt see them selling out by then...

    im going early thoug just to make sure i get one because i need a phone asap my samsung reality broke and its hard being a teenager without a phone lol..

    Samsung Fascinate. It has a superior screen, processor, and form factor i think to all of the other droids.Go to a Verizon store and play with all of them and then see what you like.

    Besides the few obvious differences between the two phones ie: screen size and physical keyboard, they are almost identical on the inside

    Either way you go would be a good choice, but for me I would have a hard time without a physical keyboard

    Droid 2 is what I recommend for a teenager the qwerty keyboard alone. If you spend alot of time texting, looking up stuff on the internet, or sending emails, then this phone will make life much easier. Also, it will be easier to carry if you're always carrying it around at school. The processor is fast and great internet. The droid 2 will fit best with your school schedule. Hope that helps.

    Just a bit of advice before you start downloading your apps,check them out for reviews,quirks,features. If you google the app there is plenty of information from previous users save yourself the trouble of downloading and then deleting the apps. Some apps have 8-10 versions like notes and others so there is also a widow of information that pops up in first retrieval of apps at the market telling what areas you will be using for each app such as location and contact informaton. check and read Droid beginners sticky they are very helpful on this forum. Good luck with the New Droid!dancedroid

    OP, I think you should spend an hour test driving the phones. Hopefully, that will allow you to decide which phone is best for you.
