    From Android Central:
    This just might be the phone that will replace my rooted Nexus1 and Melissa's iphone (Melissa is also eyeing my N1 as well as the HTC Inspire 4G). My big reservation is that Cyanogen does not do his magic on Motorola phones. Cyanogen and his team have created a incredible Gingerbread custom rom that I will really hate to give up. Thank goodness for the 30 day return policy.

    It's the only phone I've been excited about since getting my Nexus1. I mean dual core...how can one not be excited.

    Then it's not for you.
    ( Another anti AT&T irrelevant post.) So move along..nothing of interest for you to read here. :nono2:

    It is relevant.

    I played with the Atrix for a long time at CES and loved it.

    But, you asked the question "what's not to get excited about?", and I responded. After having AT&T before, and now having a superior provider, I won't go back to AT&T for any phone.

    So, that's why for some (many) there's no reason to get excited about the Atrix. If it becomes available on another provider, that will be a different story.

    Or were you just being rhetorical?

    I have had AT&T/Cingular for over 9 years without any complaints. So for me it is the superior network. I don't want this thread to turn into this vs them. It is about the Atrix on AT&T. I would like it to stay that way. Thank you.

    Ah, so you were being rhetorical. No problem, should have just said that.

    Yea, $199, typo, brain vs hand. Was just at AT&T a while ago and he said it will be in the store on March 3rd. Not sure on the Feb vs March dates though but I never trust a DirecTV or AT&T rep. :lol: He didn't mention the package when I asked about the dock.

    Actually for me it's been Cellular One ->AT&T-> Cingular-> AT&T. Must go back 20 +years. I remember my first phone was the hard-wired handset like a desk phone with the hummmming curly antenna on the vehicle. :) Guess I'm also one of the lucky few in the minority with no issues. :rolleyes:

    Yes..I believe you are correct. I was reading a post on the Atrix thread in xda..the poster didn't think CM would deal with the Atrix. CM7 RC/Nightly is great..a few minor bugs but it's still in beta.

    Really? ;) I went to my AT&T store last weekend, just after the HTC Inspire (nice phone btw.) arrived. The Atrix laptop dock was already on display but the rep didn't know how much,or what it was for. She didn't have a clue on any of the costs associated with the Atrix.

    Same here! But I'm keeping the Nexus, and putting the Atrix on a second line. Can't give up a great phone just because I'm getting another great phone, right? :lol::lol:

    Highly agree! :) The Nexus will be staying in the family through a rather convoluted upgrade musical chairs. Melissa is the one already due for a upgrade. Since she wants to get rid of her iphone, she will be the one upgrading to the Atrix which she will give to me, I will give her my Nexus. When I'm due for the upgrade in June, Melissa will either A) keep the Nexus B) get the HTC Inspire or C) get another Artrix (then we can video chat) or D) get whatever cool phone is released by that time. The Nexus will remain in the family since it is rooted, running CM7 which allows me to hotspot my laptop (for free, (which I am doing right now)), unless the Atrix is rooted..blah blah. Whew..:lol:

    We also dropped our call minutes down to the next tier( 700 minutes a month, we only use about 100 minutes a month) to save $20 a month, got the unlimited any mobile to any mobile calling (for free). Doing that we lost our 2000 rollover minutes, however she got the txt msg (because she is a iphone user, for now) that she gets 1000 bonus minutes...so before we do the switch she will pay the bill, send in the txt reply (getting the free minutes) then we will do the above process. All the while keeping our grandfathered unlimited data plan.

    Simple and clear....right? :jump3:!rolling
