    For right now I can't find a setting on the stock browser to load the desktop version of web sites only. So no LGK SB on the stock browser. You can download Skyfire and that will work though. Im still experimenting with my Droid X........more to follow....

    Tips? Play around with it. Learn about how it functions. Before you start downloading everything, think of how you want things organized and arranged. Test out the calling and the email/texting. Get familiar with it mostly. Also, swype isn't turned on by default. You'll have to do it manually if you want to. Having said that, the keyboard in landscape mode is fantastic.
    Got it today, I'm loving it! Swype is amazing! Also, I love how when I type in addresses on google maps, it remembers the ones I used to type on my computer when using google maps!

    I found this interesting. and it makes my wifes phone choice a little more difficult since she wants a Droid with a physical qwerty keyboard.



    According to a photo of Verizon Wireless intranet posted on Droid Forums.net, the popular and successful Motorola Droid will be soon discontinued along many other devices such as the BlackBerry Tour 9630, Motorola Devour, Nokia Twist, Samsung Knack, Samsung Smooth, Samsung Intensity, Samsung Saga, and the Gateway LT2016U netbook. All these devices are already in the EOL [end of life] list, which means Verizon Wireless is making some room for the next generation of devices coming up later this year.

    For instance, itís very certain that Verizon Wireless in partnership with Motorola will release the new Motorola Droid 2 in early August. The Motorola Droid 2 will replace the original Droid.

    I also pulled this from droidforums.net.

    Got a refurbished Moto Droid from assurian, everything worked fine until I went to use the headphone jack. It was loose, and would cause the headphone to go in and out. I called a few days later to have them send me another one, and I was told they were now out of stock or refurbs and new droids and will no longer be getting anymore in! They then wanted to charge me ANOTHER 89.00 for a new claim! After 20 minutes of aarguing i was told as a "one time courtesey" I would be sent a HTC DESIRE!?! I tried to explain to the rep that that was an ATT phone and that the incredible was the comparible verizon phone to upgrade me too. She insisted the only phone was the DESIRE! After 45 minutes of talking to a supervisor, he informed me that the rep must have been mistaken....the phone they were going to send me was a DEVOUR! After trying to argue, that this was a DOWNGRADE for almost 45 minutes. I ran the the local VZW corp store. I explained the story to the rep. He was great...call assurian himeself to help settle the problem. And he was told the same thing. The VZW store just gave me a new droid from their stock without a problem.
    So anyone out there making a claim with Assurian for the Droid, make sure that they will not be sending you the DEVOUR or DESIRE! I Assume if enough people push for it, you can get an Incredible or Droid 2(after release).
    Are they really getting rid of the Droid already? I know the Droid 2 is reportedly to be released 8/23 but why discontinue already?

    Not sure if i should wait till the 23rd or not. My contract is up 8/12 and i'm looking forward to the Droid X, while my wife just wants a Droid. Looks like i may have to wait a week or so if infact the Droid 2 comes on the 23rd of august.

    Oh and speaking of the X. does anyone know anything about this efuse? Apparently it makes your phone go poof if you try to hack it in any way? and the only way to "unbrick" it is to send it back to Motarola?

    Oh and instead of making another post lol, does anyone know if Bestbuy honors the new every 2 discount? I want my X for $99 and would rather get the discount upfront instead of a giftcard i won't get for 2 months.

    on Droid going EOL- It normal for a phone to only last 6-9 months now. The Droid X was JUST released this week why would you want a droid ?when you can get better for the same price/
    The Samsung Galaxy X under some other codename is being released at all 4 carriers this week. TMO already has it under the Vibrant name It will be the Captivate for ATT, release on Sunday. Good phone but like an older iPhone with a better display

    From endgadget-

    Motorola's primary focus is the security of our end users and protection of their data, while also meeting carrier, partner and legal requirements. The Droid X and a majority of Android consumer devices on the market today have a secured bootloader. In reference specifically to eFuse, the technology is not loaded with the purpose of preventing a consumer device from functioning, but rather ensuring for the user that the device only runs on updated and tested versions of software. If a device attempts to boot with unapproved software, it will go into recovery mode, and can re-boot once approved software is re-installed. Checking for a valid software configuration is a common practice within the industry to protect the user against potential malicious software threats. Motorola has been a long time advocate of open platforms and provides a number of resources to developers to foster the ecosystem including tools and access to devices via MOTODEV at http://developer.motorola.com."

    So in other words, yes, eFuse will shut down a phone with an unapproved bootloader -- but it won't brick the phone, it just needs "approved software" to be dropped back on there. Knowing the wealth of talent in the Android development community, we're still really hopeful this nonsense is going to get circumvented either way, but at least we can breathe a little easier knowing that Moto isn't out to destroy your multi-hundred-dollar investment.

    BB cannot apply the NE2 discount like at a Verizon Store. They can, if you can talk them into it, match the price from Verizon's NE2 discount. When I bought my DINC from them I didn't think to do this but my NE2 was only $30.00 How did you get a $100.00 NE2?

    If anyone has played around with Moto Commercial radios SABERS/ASTRO MT2000 etc......this is common for "Big M" to do this. These radios need to be PC programmed to enter the freqs and stuff. The software is strictly controlled by Big M. If you were able to get a hold of the software and program the radio but it was not the most current build........you guessed it.... radio is locked and must be returned to Big M to be unlocked.

    On another topic, how is everybody's battery life? I had my X die today after only 8 hours. This was after a full charge taken off charger at 11:00 AM. Surfing the web for about 1 hour, Google Navigator for 1 hour with display always on and maybe an hour of streaming XM Radio over my bluetooth headphones. Hopefully this will get better.

    Question #2, does everybody have the ATK Task Killer and NFL apps pre installed? For some reason I am missing both of those apps. I heard they were supposed to be installed with the phone.

    Thanks
