Default I am thinking of getting my first pro

I have a BB curve and I am thinking of going with the pro? I went to verizion and if I up grade it will cost me 149.00 after rebate. On line it is free and on here I see it for 1 cent. Can any one tell me what they think about their pro and why on line it is free and in the store it is not?

Don't know about the cost but my company changed phones and I lost my BB Curve for a new Verizon DROID Pro. Worst move we have ever made. Compared to the BB the DROID is a total piece of @#$%^&*. The battery lasts < 6 hrs and I have about every app shut down to try and save the battery. About all I'm using it for is getting e-mail and I have the GPS and Bluetooth shut off. Don't trade off your BB for this junk. I'm about ready to do the Corona commercial where the guy skipd his phone across the water.

There are always various online deals that they don't have in the store. It's just the way things run.

I suggest that you look through this thread here to get some opinions on the Droid Pro:

Thinking about upgrading to Droid Pro, does anyone like it?

I absolutely love mine. The vast majority of the issues you read about have been solved by the latest software update. Yes, coming from a Blackberry there will be things you have to adjust to, like battery life. An Android phone does so much more than a Blackberry phone, and it requires more power (and in turn more battery) to do it all. If you don't care about the features of Android, and just about the battery life, you might want to stick with Blackberry. But if you want everything Android has to offer, it's a great transition device.

There are also a lot of things you can do to improve battery life on the Pro. I have GPS and Sync on all the time, and I easily get over 20 hours of battery life on a single charge.

+1 on what bsweetness has said. I came from a BB and have absolutely no regrets. I love the Pro. Yes, the Android experience is a little different than the BB experience. It took me about a week to realize how much better the Pro was than the BB...you just have to learn how to do things differently because of different technology and different operating systems...NOT HARDER...JUST DIFFERENT. As far a battery life...certainly the Pro won't match the BB, but with an extended battery, some simple battery saving tips and common sense you can easily get a full days use out of a charge even if you are a heavy users.

My wife came from BB and she couldn't be happier. It took me 4 months to convince her but she says she will never go back. Battery life is something to be desired but she has adjusted to it and really its not that bad. She is a heavy user and still gets 10 to 12 hours. I really don't think that you will dislike the pro. I say give it a shot!! :P
