I realize that the Droid X does alot of fancy things, but phone calling and texting are just not one of it's good features. The ringer volume is too low, the call quality if not good, and the incoming speaker is not good. I do hear static often, and it is difficult to end a call quickly. The texting feature also has some flaws in that it is not easy to retrieve saved messages, and not easy to delete or save as draft as some of the older phones. The alert notifications are very short blurps, so if one doesn't hear it the first time, the message would go unanswered. This is my first smartphone, so maybe I am just not giving it enough time, but the option to return it in 30 days is looking like a good one.
