G whatever service?

Will the Motorola Droid a855 work as a phone without my having to have G service from my provider (Verizon). I just want a physically larger phone than the one I have and don't really care how smart it is? Verizon only wants to sell new gear and bigger service contracts and I can't get a straight answer from them.

ITS OFFICIAL!!!

ITS OFFICIAL! voyagerboy will be getting the iphone4 in feb. on verizon!! its long awaited, but its about time verizon stops screwin around with garbage and finally reaches the big leuges..no more black screens, no more missed emails, no dropped podcasts, flawless streaming, apps that dont crash after 2 mins, and yes bluetooth that connects the first time, my purchasing this phone will represent a tribute to a dying capatilistic nazi, who sues everyone. ill leave the peeons with their moronic android phones to quivle about it themselves, im movin on up like the jeffersons. i might even buy stock in apple now that its dropping, unfortunatly this will be the first actuall smartphone i owned since no droid qualifies. cant wait for the seamless ...

Droid keeps auto rebooting!

I am running FRG83D and I recently upgraded Juice Defender. I am not sure if Juice Defender is causing the reboots or if it is FRG83D.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Faster than Mifi?

I have a friend that claims the wireless tether app is a faster internet connection than his mifi 2200 when he has them side by side. Could this be due to the wifi on the app interfereing with the mifis signal?

also in the application ive noticed i can change the wireless frequency channel. what is the effect of this? same question with the LAN settings.

We will be using online petitions and various news outlets to get the word out Very Happy . our objective is to help people make wise choices when choosing a phone, if this effort is as sucsessful as i hope it to be, and with support from others hopefully we can rid the world of this useless family of phones.. stay tuned for updates!!!

Have a Rooted Droid? Try this Rom/Theme

I am a huge fan of the Cyanogen Team and his CM6 is an outstanding rom if you're currently rooted but haven't made the jump to custom roms yet (Honestly, besides CM, the only roms I ever kept on my phone for extended periods of time were Leaked official builds, and insanelyclean/shadowrom)

But recently, I decided to look into rom themes.

I decided to install the Incognito-Red for CM6. It's amazing. Everything is black and white (using ADW Theme is basically a must with this rom) and super slick.

http://forum.droid-life.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=407 »

I highly suggest you guys check it out. What other roms/themes do you guys use, if you're rooted that is?

droid versus original voyager breakdown

heres a quick comparison to the droid and droid 2 to my old phone the voyager,

1. voyager does not stream podcasts, either does droid 1 or 2

2. voyager played youtube videos fine, droid 1 and 2 cant play for more than 1 minute on wifi and 3g.

3. voyager had stereo bluetooth and it stayed connected, most droid/droid 2 ever stayed connected to bluetooth was 20 mins.

4. gps worked fine on vzw navigator, droid 1 and 2 gps dosent work at all and dosent even have my location in the right hemisphere.

5.voyager never froze, droid 1 and 2 freezed multiple times a day.

new droid 2, new set of problems

on my second droid 2, whole new set of problems, phone does not wanna connect to 3g now, and when i enter the camera app it just goes back to the homescreen, ohh ya and the hard keys dont light up like the first droid dud i had, i did get a new wireless n router and the phone flys on wifi with that router, i just cant imagine anyone actually spending money on these phones, i got 2 droids for free and i still got ripped off, even 5 bucks is to much money for a paperweight.

Sound help?

My son gave me his droid. I LOVE IT so far but have a few questions.

1. When my son had it, when charging, once charged it would make a sound. Mind is not doing that.

2. I have two friends...Tony and Toni ....both of the contacts are meshed together (I use facebook as do they if that could have anything to do with it). When Toni texts me, it comes up as TonY.

3. Is there a way to get the alarm to show on the screen with the icons rather than having to go into phone and then look for it? It's a pain shutting it off each morning when I have to go look for it, wakes everyone else up!

4. Any apps that you might be able to recommend, I'd appreciate it!

THANKS!

DLNA streaming, a quick word

well i finally got dlna streaming to work from my droid to my xbox(for a little while at least) and of course anything you try and do with a droid is only temporary, and dlna is no exception, the streaming works for about 5 mins or so then stops, then cant find the phone at all, this is no surprise at all to me, its just another example of how motorola advertises the phone can do a task and it cant, this is false advertising at its worst people, just one more thing to get pissed off about i guess, damn these phones are a joke.
