    DROID 3 is definitely a good replacement. I love mine so much. Probably upgrading to DROID 4 when it comes out.

    Locked bootloader = Doesn't really matter, it still gets root and roms. I'm running ICS on my locked bootloader phone right now.

    Non-removable battery = Doesn't matter either. A power cycle is easily done with a button combination that bypasses the software entirely. It works even when the entire phone is locked up

    Well my ally is currently activated, but tomorrow i will be deactivating it as soon as my newly ordered droid razr maxx comes in the mail from verizon. I will say imma miss this community, as well as the great roms and things that have made this phone very fun and made rooting clear to me as to what it was. To all the devs, thanks for the great rom support because it was fun flashing many many roms. I will be testing velocity 1.2.2 beta 18 as my last rom with this phone activated, but i am pretty sure i will be open to test further roms or what not with this once im done. Ill check around every so often and leave feedback. Thanks.

    And a general question to anyone, unless i should post elsewhere, but will roms for the razr work on the razr maxx? And all the time? Thanks again.

    Yep, all RAZR roms work on the MAXX. They're the same exact phone, just one has a larger battery. They run the same software versions.

    Okay good because on dumbass target tech dude when i first went was like "oh the maxx has the extended battery and a faster cpu" and i knew the faster cpu part was wrong cuz i do my research but it made me think. But so thatll be very convenient so for everything i can go do the razr thread. Thanks

    I have mine as does my wife. I've rooted with Velocity. I am about to root the wife's. Great phone. The keyboard comes in handy with or without Swype and/or Speech to text. I don't see a reasonable replacement for the price yet. We got ours free for a two year agreement with Verizon over a year ago.

    I've upgraded a line of service to a Moto D4. Been using it for about 5 days so far.

    It's not perfect, but neither was the Ally. Overall I think its a very comparable replacement. I will probably upgrade the other lines of service soon. I prefer to remain on a single handset at a time...

    I deactivated my Ally on Friday and switched the the Razr Maxx! I had a good run with the Ally, but I wanted to do more with my phone, and I wasn't able to due to the Ally's limitations. So, the day I could upgrade, I did.

    I came from the Ally to the Bionic as well. Where did you get cm9? I would really like to have it. Is it fully functional? What update do you have to be on? Thanks in advance.

    I still have two Ally phones active on my Verizon account; one is being used by my wife. There are two more I know of being used by in-laws. The day the warranty expired on all four of them is the day they were loaded with the Velocity ROM. Will keep them activated as long as they keep working.

    2 here. Due in July. Thought I want an actual keyboard, but now that I am kind of getting used to the touchscreen, doesn't seem to mather much. Was thinking about keeping it, but with all the "SD card removed" issue lately, guess it is time to change.

    upgrade to the LG spectrum at the beginning of February. Didn't have much a choice, Ally front screen blacked out and inside was already gone. It was a nicked ribbon :-(.
    New phones a beast though.

    Deactivated my Ally Monday and went to the Bionic with a extended battery. Yes the Razr and Razr Maxx are the latest and greatest but the Bionic is right behind them and CHEAP!
    I seriously considered the Razr, but cheap is the main reason I went with Ally in the first place, and the Bionic is going to be a good enough replacement for the next two years.

    i guess im a collector lol. i got three still activated on my accounts. not due for an upgrade until June. so little time to go i actually decided to root and install a custom ROM. was hard since a lot of the links are now dead and there's not much support. got enough ROMs to keep me occupied until then. Some of the newer ROMS make a world of difference! :D

    Still using mine, although today it got its first real damage when I dropped onto some sidewalk concrete. Tiny crack in the screen just in the black by the Search icon. I'm thinking that come June, when my contract truly ends, we're going to revamp our entire mobile phone philosophy and switch over to prepaid. I'll get a good unlocked something or other from Swappa.com and put a $30/mo T-Mobile plan on it, and when I do, I'll have to decide what to do with the Ally.
