Happy 1-month Anniversary!
1-month ago today, I was sitting outside my local Verizon store with 40+ other people waiting for the gates to the Droid X to open. I was first in line at 5AM local time.
The weeks leading up to that date, I was hitting the refresh button on the front page of Android Central & this very forum. I even ended up at a 4 different Walmart stores the night before the release after hearing they were selling them early - with no luck.
Waiting for this phone to come out had totally consumed my life!
1-month later I'm happy as a clam, and that's saying a lot for someone who buys every single phone that comes out and will even switch carriers to do so. This phone is the phone that will tie me over until something really revolutionary comes out - preferably with the same screen size and slim form factor.
Have a great weekend!

Re: Happy 1-month Anniversary!
I've only been rocking the X for about a week and a half, and its vastly exceeded my expectations.
Unfortunately, I did have to get a replacement. I was "lucky" enough to get one of the units from the first batch that suffered from the flickering screen issue.
Even with all that though, no other phone compares. I love everything about it. ESPECIALLY, the MotoBlur widgets. I honestly don't understand everyones problem with MotoBlur.

Been a month, and as a former iPhone user and Blackberry user, this is the best smartphone I've ever used. I had an iPhone 3g a year or so ago. Liked it - except it was useless as a phone. Went back to Verizon and used a Curve then a Tour.
I read an article that says the iPhone might actually get to Verizon next year. That Apple was busy buying CDMA radios. The article said "too late - Android is taking over". Then yesterday a friend asked me to jailbreak his iPhone, and I messed around with it for a while.
Droid X rules. I would not go back to an iphone. Too small, not enough speed. It really is just too late for the iPhone. Although I would have bought one in a heartbeat 31 days ago if Verizon had one that actually worked as a phone.
Now, with a rooted DX, and Froyo on the horizon. I just won't say NO to a Verizon iPhone. I'd say "hell-no".

I am going on my 2nd replacement and I still absolutely adore this phone. It ranks right up there with my husband and kids. I honestly believe that I had bum luck with the phones i've had so far. The first one had the locking up and camera issues that many have had. This one has some electrical issues. Verizon is now sending me a new in box retail package so I am hopeful all will be well.
