Hey there, i'm new here, and new to smartphones in general. I'll be purchasing an Android phone tomorrow and i'll probably be using this forum from now on (which is a great one, thanks for it). What i'm not sure is what carrier and what model of Android phone i'll be going with. It's going to be a family phone for traveling. I'm considering two models- 1- Motorola Droid X from Verizon 2- Samsung Captivate from AT&T The only deciding factor is MobiTV. It is absolutely essential for my mom to have, and will be the #1 deciding point in the deal. I know for sure the Samsung phone can indeed run MobiTV. What i'm not sure of is the Droid X. It's not important to me, but it is to my mother. I asked the sales representative at Verizon wireless if they had MobiTV for any of their phones, and the lady told us no due to it being crappy and unstable, prone to freezing. I wasn't sure if that was just that they chose not to install it on any phones at the store or not. I asked another guy at Walmart, and he said i should be able to download it manually from the Android marketplace or whatever it's called. Also, on MobiTV's website, they list Verizon as one of the supported carriers for their services. So now i'm quite confused. Rooting will be something i'm going to do, so if i need to do that to get MobiTV, i shall. And i'll need a phone i CAN root obviously, so that's a concern. I don't know the full list of phones that can be fully rooted and have you install 3rd party or unauthorized apps on... My questions is basically, is there ANY way to get MobiTV on a Verizon Motorola Droid X? It's important that we get live TV on the go, we will be needing news channels, specifically Fox News, NBC, or any other network news as well (general news). I'd also be interested in hearing about other services on the phone that does the same thing as well. As long as it's live streaming TV news i can access from a 3G network on the interstate or whatever. Sorry for the long post, but i needed to get in as much info as possible. I'll try to provide more info or clarify as needed. I'm in a bit of a hurry as the final decision will almost certainly be made tomorrow. There are still some slight possibilities i'll be going with other carriers too, any advice would be well taken. We intend to be traveling west, near Colorado and all those states. Thanks so much in advance!
