    Since ice cream sandwich, I'm wondring, is it still good on gingerbread?
    Because I'm thinking of getting this phone and I'm wondering if it is still a good phone even though it's not going to get updated anymore?

    I would say yes. I have had mine Since April 2011. If your not concerned about having an older OS, then its a good buy. If you want the most current OS, this isn't the phone for you.

    Edited: I also, have the Lapdock and Standard dock. (I love the Lapdock.) Just these two docks alone add to the functionality of the phone. The Lapdock turns the Atrix into a netbook. The standard dock turns the Atrix into an alarm clock + docking/media station.

    Anyone that is interested in purchasing an Atrix 4g Please contact me as I have mine for sale. My contract was up and I got another one. Unit is in great working order, never dropped. I have a laptop dock that I will sell with it. PM me to start a discussion.
    Thanks. I want this to go to a good home as it has been a great phone for me.

    Agree with the consensus that the phone is great as is.

    Just frustrating all the promised support is not coming our way. There are several features I would have loved to see the phone get. Now I guess I have to go find apps that mimic the features I feel I'm missing.

    I will not buy another Motorola phone in the future, but that doesn't make this phone a dud. I believe this is a move from Google after acquiring MotoMobile. If Google is going to poop on me I'm going to avoid the poop all together.

    Phone is an absolute beast.

    Never had any problems. And it seems like an ICS kernel might be built soon on XDA.

    I have had this phone for almost 2 years, and it has proven to be very reliable. I've found a few apps that lock it up (the two worst are flashlight programs), but normally it does fine. I have it in an otterbox cover, and it's been dropped many times with no damage. In fact, I've worn out two Otterboxes! I'm a trucker, and this is my web browser when I'm away from town, too. My GPS, too, when I need help finding someplace. Newest tech? Nope. But if you need a dependable phone with a lot of apps available, and you can get it cheap, it's a good buy.
