    A locked and encrypted bootloader means (in a nutshell) that Motorola has laid several land mines on the road to your future use of the Droid X - they want to prevent you from gaining administrative access to that phone . It may or may not prove to be a real severe problem, as lots of people seem to have found work-arounds for those land mines I spoke of.

    So if I buy it from the verizon wireless store it will most likely be the what I need. Should I keep my sd card? There is so much stuff on there now and I don't know if it will effect the way my X configures... I'm on my way so I guess we'll see! Thanks again! :)

    Ok this may seem crazy -- bought a droid X right when they came out. Came from an iPhone 4 which I had just purchased a few months before that and couldnt stand the signal. Converted to Verizon. Loved the size of the screen. So let's see how long has it been now, a couple months? I've disliked motorola's products for a long time now, they always lack something and the quality sucks~! Needless to say the phone looked great I only hoped it would perform as well -- it did for 2 months then I lost all gps functionality, bluetooth dropped all the time, forget connecting to wifi, (2.2 did help but I still had numerous issues with wifi connection drops) after that the phone locked up. Had to remove the battery to reset it and it never came back (stuck in a boot loop, then a picture of the battery with a ? mark. Verizon corporate store told me it had water damage becuse the little sticker peeled off the bottom of the battery and stuck to the phone. Yeah you morons thats what happened, look at all the other moisture monitors nothing on them including the one 3cm from the battery one.

    Finally got them to send me a new (refurbed) phone. In the meantime I was visiting a local mall in the area and found a best buy mobile store on free phone friday - guess what was free, an incredible. Signed up for a new number and took one home with me. How can anyone not like the incredible better? Besides the smaller screen it WORKS, nothing has been an issue at all. The UI is so much better and all the apps they have designed are so much better to look at. The hardware itself doesnt look like it was made in a toy factory. I DO miss the bigger screen though -- bring on the incredible HD say goodbye to motorola. HTC has it goin on these days & they know it.

    I agree with you about the Dinc. - see my signature :) - it is a much overlooked high end phone. My Dinc. is an early model, with an AMOLED screen, which is drop-dead *gorgeous* to look at, but a battery hound. No problem there though - I purchased one of those Seidio 3500 extended batteries, along with the accompanying case, and now I have a rooted phone, with a fabulous screen, and plenty of battery life. More even, than my Droid 1, and that used to be the workhorse phone in my lineup. The screen size is a bit on the small side for my tastes, but the pros definitely out weigh the cons. It's an excellent choice.
