    There have been a few threads discussing what new phone might be a suitable replacement for an OG Droid but this is a little different. When you finally find something worth upgrading to what will you do with your old Droid? You could sell it but that's boring and by the time the next generation is widely available it might not be worth much anyway. It would be a shame to just put it on the shelf next to a bunch of old flip phones. I thought of maybe using it as a dedicated GPS/Car Computer but I'm not sure how useful it would be if I didn't keep it activated. Maybe I'll mount it somewhere as a dedicated viewer for my security cameras. So what CREATIVE uses can you think of for a deactivated OG Droid?

    I plan on keeping it in the car for GPS or something like that. Might even use it as just an mp3 player.

    When I get my new Android phone after my July available date, I will run my Droid batteries down to 40%, put them in the fridge to preserve their life and store my Droid in a drawer. I will not get any insurance on the new Android phone. If I lose or break the new one or it dies after the 12 month warranty then I will use my Droid again until I am again eligible for a new phone. We have done this with all our phones for many years. The interesting thing is that we have never had to fall back to the old phone. None damaged, lost, stolen or dead. My wife will do the same with her Ally about a year later, except that she will not likely want to replace it when eligible.

    Since I have the multimedia dock I'll probably continue to use it as my bedside alarm clock

    My wife is telling me her D1 is having some issues since she spilled coffee on it last week. So my guess is she's going to get my D1.

    The other day when she was telling me about phone problems I immediately offered her my Blackberry Storm.. :) She said she don't want no stinking Blackberry.
