Verizon sent me the wrong one at first. I finally got the correct 3G version. Problem is that both always set all phones back 1 hour because it gets your location incorrect. On Google Latitude it always shows me like 25 miles SW of where I am and there's a time zone difference at that point. With it turned off my time is always correct. Verizon nor Samsung can't, or won't, do anything about this issue for some reason. So if it's 3:30pm local your phone always shows 2:30pm & I use the Droid X with a lot of calendar events that get messed up. You have to go in and manually set the time, if your phone allows it. Wish that was fixed.

Then, speeds are usually quite horrible. Considering I have a 10+Mbps cable broadband connection I barely get over 1Mbps on my cell. Why the 3G speed is so slow over this device I don't understand. When I'm away from my home in a better signal area I get double the speed with a weaker 3G signal.

Calls though are a lot better but people complain it sounds like your voice comes in waves. In reality, the thing's really only worth maybe $50 at the most. And, you're using YOUR bandwidth not Verizon's. And they brag they won't charge you any extra. They should discount your service since it's going through your wired broadband connection.

Summing it up, it's a nice looking device but I didn't get it for its looks and it sure didn't deliver on its promise of higher speeds or better call quality. But, no calls have been dropped.
