    My d1 this morning-Get a phone call at 0600, hit green slider to answer but it continues ringing for two minutes. Battery pull, flashes back to SS from cyanogen. go to school, in parking lot i go to look up that number on the net which froze my browser after the simple google search. Tried it three more time, then switched to skyfire. Skyfire worked but then my phone froze right on the page(couldn't do anything, had to ctr shift delete). Then flashed to miui where it is now but its glitching out as well. lol it really seems like no rom can help my phone out at this point, i just need a new phone. :frown: Tonight i think im nuking it with a clean sbf and just running stock froyo till nexus drops. ive already nuked it 3 times this month though... Nexus really needs to come out soon or im going to have to bite on the d4 when it releases. i could return d4 then but im not sure if i would do that. My d1 was nice but it is just barely hangin in their. :dry:

    I'd do a factory reset. It'll help your Droid OG get through the next few weeks and you'll essentially do it when you get a new phone too. Worth the few minutes to reconfigure anything that doesn't carry over.

    I dont really need tips. I was just replying to the fact that my D1 is on its last wobbly leg. And a Factory reset is a given when you flash a different rom (wipes data, also smart to clear cache too) Thank you for your advice though. :welcome: Welcome to the boards. post 1. :D please go here: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/new-member-introductions-site-assistance/ and introduce yourself. youll also get help their if ya need it. (not that you wont get help elsewhere, cuz u will)

    Wow, didn't think it was that bad. I use my OG Droid as an extra media device at home and it's almost unbearable lol, compared to you I have no right to complain. Hang in there man, hopefully the rumors are true this time and it'll be out next wekk

    I called my Verizon and without hesitation I was told they got an email delaying it from tomorrow's "release date" I was also able to confirm a $650 off contract price which I'm ready for :serious:

    To the D1 owners, you guys and gals are suffering the worst here, my Bionic is plenty to hold me over - hang in there :)

    The places we need to be calling are preimum retailers... if anyone one is going to "miss the memo" it will be them.

    Lol, hate going to a car salesman too but sometimes when you want something you gotta go. At least your going to him all educated about all his products. :biggrin:

    I'd rather make my purchase at Best Buy, that's good news - although Best Buy opens at 10 Verizon at 9 :serious:

    I'm just happy that I'm not on the East Coast... that way, no matter what happens, I can wake up and check on here and I will know for sure if people have been buying them or not before the stores here have even opened.

    Im not talking about making money off of selling the phone. Im talking about negotiations with google about the mobile pay feature. If verizon could NOT include Gwallet and implement ISIS...sure...delaying sales now would end up making them more money down the road.

    In my opinion many buyers may not even know what bloat is. They just now it has preinstalled apps. Being vanilla/pure google is not a selling point that is going to win the hearts of the typical consumer strolling into a storefront. Ive seen verizon salesmen pitch the hell out of the Iphone when it first came to verizon....even though there were much better phones in the store. Ive seen them actually steer customers who were looking and playing with an android phone away from it toward the iphone and how its the "best" phone they have now. And the customers just this epiphany look in their eyes...."wow.....BEST phone". Start talking about features...most people will start yawning.

    Then there's us....give us the phone...NOW. :p I dont care whats going on with it. If there WAS any bugs to squash...google will fix it quickly....or the dev community.
