10:32pm (PST) and just ordered mine. Can't wait till I get it Friday!! I went into a VZW store this afternoon to get some account info and I got the guy to let me handle one of their demo units that they were getting ready to set on display. I was expecting it to be massive but it actually feels pretty comfortable in the hand. Not really heavy either. w00t!!!

Seriously. I have had the use of those apps through the iTouch and iPhone... That is the dumbest reason to have a phone. Apps are Apps. That is all. The phone sucks and the service sucks. The games are no different than the droids marketplace. Now that you are joining the VZW crew quit complaining about your crappy phone and love every moment of full coverage and better functional phones that you can hold in your right AND left hands....

Hawk, if you love your IPhone so much why don't you just stay where you are. I highly doubt Verizon Wireless wants to make any deals with someone who is so loyal to a phone like that. They don't want you please do us a favor and stay on the shoddy network you belong with.

you 2 are sad, i had vz for years. i left for a much much much better phone. VZ had NOTHING last summer. The apps and the touch screen and the interface is way better on the in iphone. I live in an area where i have no problems with service. with that said, going back to vz family plan saves me money. And yes the iphone is not without fault. I am going to try the Droid X and c how it goes. Dont say the apps are not a reason to buy a phone. That IS the reason ppl are picking which ever phone they have. Again, you 2 are sad!

I understand what he means. Yes the Iphone is great for apps thats pretty much all it had. Now the android market is begging to catch up in that area. The simple fact is its a fast growing market and will surpass pretty easily within a year or two. But the only bad thing is android has so many diff phones the apps all need to be adjusted to fit the platform of each phone so some apps dont come out as well thats why there are so many updates . So iphone only has one basic platform so they get the better ratings on apps. But with android becoming the dominant market it wont be long before the iphone will be used for just an ipod..

Seriously people? you mean to tell me that you are going to try to hang this man because he wants to switch over to verizon and leave his Iphone? thats just sad, but let me ask you? are you paying his monthly statement? exactly, he can do whatever the hell he wants to do. its his choice, and as far as knocking him about how att is over priced and is raping him or whatever. ALL OF THESE PROVIDERS IS RAPING US ONE WAY OR ANOTHER!!!!!! reguarless if its verizon,att,sprint or tmobile. They all got something they are pull over on us. I dont see the point of defending a wireless provider when in truth they dont care about the customer. All they do is smile in your face, talk a good game to you, from there your convinced and after you give in they say AH HA I got you and they can do so as they please. its just how business is, its about that green dollar. If they cared why arent they giving out their services for free? why when you dont pay your bill on time they shut your service off? They want your hard earned money and you do as they tell you too. But people just stop bashing others because of waht they want to do because im pretty sure there are plently of verizon, sprint, and even tmobile customers that dropped the iphone. FYI: Verizon aint too far off in price from AT&T....Im just saying

Dang expensive radio lol. BTW, does anyone know if it'll have a digital display? Some radio stations broadcast a digital frequency that allows compatible tuners to display the name of song and name of artist. Does anyone know if the DroidX will be able to do this?

I just picked up mine from best buy and im very impressed by it. I haven't experienced any problems at all. Yes i can even hold the phone with my left hand. The screen is massive and very clear even compared to the original droid. I also love how much smoother and faster web browsing is. This phone is amazing and i would recommend it to anyone with verizon. Warning tho its 700 dollars at best buy without a contract so save up if you don't want to renew haha
