As much as I love all the gadgetry of the Droid, the reception is beyond awful much like it was with my RAZR. My last phone, a Samsung performed flawlessly - all phones using Verison. It is painfully obvious at this point that Motorola has serious issues with the call reception of their phones. Perhaps some people are willing to tolerate this in order to get all the bells and whistles - I am not one of them. There will always be people who will swear by their purchase come hell or high water - I expect many responses from them. But, if you search the internet you will find numerous accounts of horrendous reception with these phones. It seems poor reception is the norm for Motorola. If your main reason for purchasing a phone is to make phone calls, and you do not want to hear garbled voices, static and people constantly telling you they can't hear you, avoid Motorola phones.
