I'm not sure about it, but I would almost guarentee you would still have to pay for the $30/month for the data package regardless of where you got the phone or how much you paid for it. Because you're gonna have to pay for the service anyways. I really don't understand why you would want to pay $500+ for this phone and not want to get the data plan for it anyways. If you want to do that, you might as well get some other PDA that'll prolly do what you want better and cheaper, plus you're not wasting the capabilities of the droid that way by having its communications restricted so much. I dunno though, just my opinion on it. If you can't afford its plan and/or initial costs, then it's just not for you, IMO. Not trying to be an ass or anything .
... its not restricting it whatsoever. . . if you fully read the first post youll see it would replace my ipod and my phone. . . and since where I am there is wifi everywhere anyways... why would i want to pay 30 dollars a month for something i've already got. . . so I can use it once a week when I'm out of a wifi zone? i think not. . . as far as the price, its 400 dollars on ebay, my current phone sells for 260 on ebay and my ipod sells for 150 on ebay. . . which makes it a straight up trade, theres no "can't afford" or "affording" involved. As far as there being another device- no. there isn't. The droid is the only device I could get as a phone that has the ability to compete with the ipod touch and its app store.
What problems? Are they buying low amperage chargers, because they need to look at the specs first?
My droid randomly deletes all the threads every once in a while. While not being horrible, it does rather annoy me. Does anyone know how to fix it?
Good to hear!Of all the Motorola phones I have owned, they all had the best reception at the time compared to other brands. Coming from a ve20 and a v9m, the Droid seems to do just as good. Although i have not tried it in ALL the fringe areas around me, so far it seems great. I was worried reception would suck like some other smart phones when I bought it, but no regrets here yet.
That's GREAT to hear! A family member recently got the enV3 and has reception where there was none before with AT&T.I haven't noticed any significant differences in reception between my old env2 and the Droid.
I'm considering the droid, however I've heard some reviews that say the reception sucks others that say it's the best they've ever seen in a phone.
Anyone with reception issues on the Moto Droid/HTC Eris? more importantly has anyone compared the droid phone(s) with a standard Verizon non-smart phone?
Please clarify this a little:As a droid user, I can say the reception is fine. I had a non-smart Verizon phone before the reception is relatively clearer and more crisp.
Also, I don't understand the complaints about the keyboard, I can't seem to find a problem with it.
Motorola Milestone (GSM Droid) is supposed to be out on the 26th for Telus. Seriously considering picking one up. The Inbrics M1 revealed at CES looks awesome, but the availability and so forth haven't been announced and I don't feel like waiting.
I've had my E71 for too long now (14 months ) Time for a change.
you can buy the milestone unlocked already, why wait for telus?
word on the street is Jan 22.
