That sounds like a personal attack!

That sounds like sarcasm. Not necessary, but not a personal attack. Lighten up.

Yes. I have friends that say "my (wife, brother, whatever) never has issues with their X", but when I press for details on how much they use their phones, it's usually "not much".

And another thought that you triggered:

If I had business that depended on my phone, there is a 0% likelihood it would be this phone.

If I had no landline phone, there is a 0% chance it would be this phone.

I consider this "phone" an emailing, texting, camera and music playing device, not reliable for the majority of those actions 100% of the time, due to connectivity (3G dropping out) issues and bugs and locking up issues and/or a conflict-ridden O. S.

It's a notch above a gameboy, but maybe even a notch below when you consider reliability.

I should probably remain silent...but I can't.  I purchased my DX on 7/15/2010 and have never had to take it back to VZW, call Customer Service or exchange it for a refurb or another phone.  I'm stock unrooted.  I've taken the OTA updates to Froyo and Gingerbread as they've been released.  I have NOT had a landline phone for about 6 years now and don't miss it at all.  I consider myself a moderate to heavy user.  I use my phone for emailing, texting, calendar/appointment scheduling, camera, camcorder, music playing (Music app, doubleTwist, Pandora, XM Radio, Amazon MP3), GPS (Nav, Waze and 2 different Golf GPS apps), Weatherbug, Facebook, Google Talk, Skype Mobile, watch live TV on my Slingbox, YouTube, check out 4 different forums, follow eBay, E*Trade, ESPN Radio and ScoreCenter, it's my Alarm Clock, Netflix, several games, can print from it to my home printer using Cloud Print and Printer Share, internet surfing, have 133 apps loaded on it, rotate between 4 different launchers (stock, GO Launcher EX, Launcher Pro Plus, ADW Launcher EX) and 5 different keyboard apps.  Oh yeah, I use it for a phone and keep all of my contacts information on it too.  I use Bluetooth to connect it to an FM modulator in one car, directly link to built in Bluetooth in another car, and use Bluetooth connections to earpiece, external portable speaker and extrenal Stowaway keyboard.  I've had an occasional bug, but nothing serious.  I've found workarounds for most any issue I've ever experienced.  I don't mean to rub salt in any wounds.  I'm just stating factual information about my experiences with what I consider to be a great phone/mini computer.

Yeah, it's difficult to pick up a person's tone sometimes through written words.

Likewise, I wasn't slamming joelbon, just being sarcastic in what I thought wasn't an offensive way. Kidding, you might say.

So, I will lighten up, too. My apologies.

Don't feel like you have to be apologetic because you've have a good experience with your X. Not putting words in your mouth, but that's the vibe I get.

There must be plenty of stories like yours, or word would get around that this phone was Moto's Edsel (Google that, young folks).

Can't say my experience matches yours even remotely.
