    So far so good I'd say.

    within the first 12 hours she navigated me 1100 miles, and broadcasted pandora via Harmon Kardon logic 5.1 the entire way!


    absolutely love how it very politely interrupts the music to navigate, and flawlessly returns to said tasks.

    the battery life was quite surprising as I also carry a blackberry tour and its outshining it already in a 2 days, I dislike the $29.99 sticker price (minus $25% in my case) for just about anything! with hard case and clip, screen protectors, windshield mount and car charger the bill grew quickly.

    So far i've just been dicking around with it a bit...
    making sure all of my contacts have cells listed under Mobile :icon_eek: (that was one of the first things i noticed w/o being advised of.

    I'll go check things out around here. :)

    lol yea.

    I was actually talked out of buying a droid back in january (by a verizon sales rep) as I am long time crackberry user...

    and I got the droid for free, amongst what is still an ongoing trouble ticket with verizon well over 45 days long now and I made a request and it was shipped over night.

    they've added the droid on a new, additional line to my account (which is being comp'd) and fwding one of my crackberry lines to the droid until the problem is solved (which may now be a blackberry problem as we've ruled out bad device and network issues)

    So, I'm keeping busy, and constantly on my phone regardless.
    facebook for android is, either A: slightly less thrilling than for BB or B: I'm not using it properly :blink:


    I really wish I didn't have to pop off the hard case to get it fitting into my windshield mount. :mad:

    I had a body glove case and found that having it naked is much better (same goes for my wife) . I have a leather pouch now and like it much better. As far as fb for the bb, not sure. My wife had a curve for all of two days before she went to a Droid Eris and the fb app is fine for her. Try the others like bloo for a different feel.

    It doesn't take long and it only gets worse! And as far as anyone here knows, there is no cure... :icon_ devil:
