    just ordered my d3 today, and just curious who did the same?

    upgraded from a d2, i dropped it and cracked the screen last week. pretty good timing i suppose. i'm looking to get my hands a little more dirty with this one as far as customizing/tweaking is concerned - hence just joining the forum.

    i got my hands on a dummy unit at the store the other day and it felt really nice. very good size (big, but not too big), and very nice looking keyboard. i suppose we'll see for real tomorrow!

    I ordered online and it is coming tomorrow. I am upgrading for an OG Droid that has a haywire screen issue.

    I did Root and run a custom ROM on the OG Droid but not until after a year of using it stock. I will probably do the same for the Droid 3. Tweaking only after I get bored.

    I think some of us forum dwellers are waiting on reviews and feedback first, due to the semi-disaster of the DX2 firmware.

    Simple test for me:

    1. No MP3audio pops
    2. No low RAM issues that require root to semi-fix
    3. No random (but consistent) reboots
    4. Battery life
    5. Run hot?
    6. Radio reception
    7. Call quality
    8. Performance (does the bloat bog it down?)

    We look forward to folks feedback today!

    Just read that it requires a signature for delivery, and I'm at work and will probably miss delivery today.... crap. Maybe I could pick it up from somewhere tonight... I hope

    If there is a neighbor nearby, they can get them to sign and hold it for you.

    My FedEx just delivered. Going to set it up now.

    I sure hope they do something like that. This could be a long wait for delivery, especially when I see all the first impressions and pics popping up - can't wait to hear what you think!

    It requires an "indirect signature". If you follow the tracking number, there is a little question mark next to that "indirect signature" line. Mouse over the question mark and it explains who can sign.
