    The Droid 2 Global's keyboard is MUCH improved over the D1 and D2. Standard clickykey setup, not that membrane thing it used to have.

    Anybody can get out of their contracts, just starts at a base of 325.00 and goes down 10.00 a month for each month of their contract, all subsidized Iphone 4's are under the 325.00 so most etf's will be around 260.00 to get out of contract.

    Add another 199-299 cost for the subsidized phone the "verizon iphone" will cost them the total pocket change cost of 459.00 or 599.00 to get it.

    some people will pay anything to brag about having the fastest mobile download speed around. Verizon must think there will be a lost of them willing to pay the cost

    the 5gb plan is 50.00 and it is estimated that the users will be able to chew through that is 32 minutes as shown in some tests

    I just can't believe who the Market is that Verizon is trying to target as the younger crowd for sure will want to Netstream and Download Movies, etc. so it won't fly for that crowd or for me!!!

    Indeed. On my HTC EVO, I currently have 10 days left in my Sprint billing cycle. So far, in my 20 billing cycle days, I've used around 1.2 million megabytes of data. Wonder what that would cost under Verizon, because on Sprint it's included as unlimited.

    That is why I bought the VirginMobile MIFI 2200 with Unlimited Data Usage because the days of Unlimited Data Usage is quickly becoming like a Dynosaur, Extinct!!!

    You must be incorrect in your usage. 1.2 million bytes would fit on a floppy disk. Only about 1.14 meg.

    Many enemies of the Empire need monitoring.

    It would have been included in the unlimited plan. Which is more expensive than Sprint's. The only data cap plans right now are the 4g LTE and the lower priced modem plans.


    The money going away is that the primary is usually eligible for an additional $50 credit if you do not use an early upgrade. It appears they're going away with this. I never used it because of the upgrade system they have me setup with but I'm sure some people will be upset about it.

    Verizon Wireless is already selling iPads at their stores, and all the employees seem to be anticipating the iPhone release pretty soon.

    been reported since 2007, when apple and steve jobs makes the announcement believe it, other then that it is blue smoke and mirrors.

    Personally wish it would go over there tomorrow, the amusement factor regarding complaints and "poor service" would make it worthwhile.

    Amazing phone however I highly recommend rooting it and running a vanilla rom. I hated the motoblur stuff

    I have the Droid X. Had the Droid and Tried a Droid 2. The on screen keyboard on the X is big enough so typos on the screen are small. Plus it has a FM Radio (big draw for me).

    I'm liking my Droid X so far. I even have a few neat apps on it too.
