    IMHO the droid 2 isnt much of and upgrade over the D1... in a month youll be kicking yourself in the butt because your stuck with the same phone you already had.

    I personally think the fascinate is the best phone available from verizon right right now. Yes i know people hate Microsoft Bing Search but thats easily removed for google search.

    Depends. If you live and work in areas with decent signal, get the Fascinate.

    If you will use it in weak signal areas, get the X.

    I just reluctantly returned my Fascinate today for an X. I live and work in low signal areas. If the Fascinate had a slightly better radio, I would have kept it for sure.

    My wife is keeping her Fascinate. She had a Droid Eris, need I say more? :D. For her, the Fascinate is a great phone.

    I had the D1,went to the X because I had an upgrade,and my fiance had a blackberry storm that wasnt cutting it. I can tell you I wish Id kept the D1,do not upgrade to the X,it isnt enough of a change,and the droid 2 is even less.....wait for something better....esp since your already rooted...the D1 has a way better external speaker,GPS signal,and battery life than the X does...it also has a better touch screen,the Xs is very finicky,and cant handle any moisture,and freezes a lot...

    Really? My x is WAY more responsive than my overclocked d1 was.

    The speaker COULD be louder, but it's loud enough for me.

    Now, when I use my cousin's d1, I find myself squinting and having trouble pressing things on the smaller screen.

    I love my dx and wouldn't go back for the world.

    Just my opinion.

    Emitted from X.

    Keep the D1. I'd wait as well till 1st quarter 2011. I think that if you do, you will look back on this day and say "man I'm glad I waited". Then again, in 2nd quarter 2011 you will probably say "man I wish I would have waited another 3 months".

    Just the way technology goes.

    Id just hold on to the D1. Mine broke so i had to use my upgrade and i got the D2. Its a very nice phone. But probably not worth using an upgrade for. I was trying to hold out as long as i could. Because i know they will probably have some nice phones coming out over the next few months into next year.

    Partially agree with this. If there's a phone you want that's available on the carrier you want, and you're in a position to buy/upgrade, then go for it. Phone tech moves fast, its easy to 'always be waiting for the next thing.'

    I want a new phone too, but I have 10 months left on my Verizon contract. So I have to bite my tongue for a while longer.
