We upgraded ours to the razr M (just waiting for delivery). My kids been houding us for an ipod, so I want the cheaper and better route (IMO) and will be giving them my droid 2 plus another one I bought cheap (twins, buy for one, gotta get the other the same thing).
I kinda figured I'd have to pay for what I want. I was hoping for a freebie, but so be it. At least they'll be able to txt for free. When they get older, I may look into paying for something cheaper than cellular service.
There is one more app I just d/led but havent had a chance to try it and that is text plus. Its supposedly a free txting/calling app.
