    I'm thinking about getting the bionic but I'm worried that I am going to miss my keyboard from the droid2 but I need a phone that has more ram since I have so many apps.

    It'll be an adjustment, but one you can make sooner than you think. I thought I would never adapt after using a BB Bold w/ keyboard. Next suggestion would be to install a better KB app like Touchpal or SwiftKey and use SWYPE or similar keyboarding technology. You'll be a screen typing guru in no time!!

    Thank you! That's what everyone keeps saying...I think I am going to try the bionic and hopefully love it. At least there is a 14 day return policy.

    Well I have until Dec 23 so hopefully I will have a better idea on what I want. I have heard good things about the razr.

    Just for clarification ...

    1. Not ALL users are having DATA issues with the BIONIC. If you are in a strong 4G area, you will likely be fine as the issues seem to be with 3G and when switching between 4G and 3G in a weak 4G area.

    2. VZ/Moto has said that they will be pushing out an update before the end of the year and it should dramatically improve the situation. Many folks that have installed recent unofficial/leaked updates have reported data issues were significantly reduced or eliminated.

    3. The Razr is essentially a repackaged Bionic. Same processor/GPU, etc., just slightly overclocked and a slightly better (in some opinions) screen in a slimmer more stylish case. You can't really go wrong with it, but if you are expecting a whole different experience from the Bionic -- you won't be getting it, really. In fact I've read that Moto will be bridging the GAP between Razr and Bionic even more-so with the new update, adding SmartActions and other Razr software functionality to the Bionic.

    It depends on how much you used it. I don't miss my OGs physical keyboard, but I do miss the short cuts.

    I use my keyboard a lot but my phone can't handle how many apps I have. I also would like a faster phone so my movies that I watch download faster and are good quality. I like my shortcuts!

    I havent I'm hearing the battery is sub par and it being non removable sucks. its to wide to tall.. really weird to hold.. 2 of my coworkers have the razr and one is exchanging it for the rezound and the other is thinking about just returning it.... But I'm sure plenty of ppl love it.. but if I were u just go to the store and play with the bionic rezound and razr and see what one u like... If u take pics vids and listen to music then u have to get the rezound the screen is awesome and the beats earbuds are a good deal also.. that's my choice... Go rezound or bionic.

    Is my D3 space bar the only one that sticks? I love the layout but I can't type fast with the physical keyboard. D3 maybe my last keyboard unless verizon is nice enough to discount US D3 users for a D4 lol. Yeah right, but it would be nice.

    Well I'm basing it on in store models. Now actually taking them from the store and using them I'm not sure.

    I came from the OG Droid and although I did use the physical keyboard, it was rare. Maybe because I had a Voyager before the Droid and that keyboard was way better. I don't miss the physical keyboard like I thought I would.
