    OK. My brother dropped his phone in a pool. It is certifiably ruined. He's on my plan so he needs to get a new phone pronto.

    I have a Motorolla droid right now (rooted w/ UD 10.0.0) and am mostly happy with it, however I'm always looking to upgrade. Is there a particular phone you'd buy in my situation? I can always go back to my droid (and upgrade in a year) if I don't like it... but I'd hate to spend all of that money and NOT get what I like.

    I'm torn with that one. I've learned so much with my D1 that I'd hesitate with something else. Helps that I'm really happy with it.

    I would think that the Droid X would be best way to go. Although I can't say much considering I still have my Droid 1 and still love it.

    Hmm.. Any interest in selling your original? I'd rather keep mine for now and wait to upgrade. That way I don't have to burn my upgrade for what I really consider to be an uninspiring option.

    If I HAD to buy today then I would say the DX, but I'd wait for incredible HD if I could which I'm doing right now

    Fascinate of course. Why get a slower phone?

    Verizon has nothing in the lineup that fits my hand, has the speed, light weight of my Incredible.
