    I've read the user reviews on VZW's site of the LG: don't do it. Battery life evidently is total crap. (I was considering it for my daughter, but no way now; I think she'll be getting a Droid II.) A friend likes his Incredible.
    Battery life on the LG Ally is actually quite good. I get a day out of it easily and most of the time I stiill hve half my battery left (this is my daily driver take with me everywhere talking/texting phone). Not sire what the reviewers are smoking. This blows the Droid and Droid Incredible out of the water in this regard.

    I got a call back and was offered the LG Ally or the Droid Incredible or to wait until I get my refurb. Not sure what to do yet.
    Get the Incredible, Verizon's best phone hands down -- but make sure to get a spare or extended life battery. Unless you are in love with stock Android that is otherwise the Ally looks like stock Android in one of it's themes.

    That's good to know as my daughter likes its form factor better than the Droid. And I hear the keyboard is good. Maybe people are just running a lot of crap (like Amazon MP3, GPS for Facebook's places, etc) and draining the battery.

    I'm on four working on 5 if I can't find a way to get this bad boy to hold wifi its gone. Tired of being in the middle of doing something and it just drops wifi

    The wifi thing has to be a Froyo problem or all of the wifi radios are crapping out at the same time. My wifi just randomly drops out now and sometimes I'll get a "web page can't be found" error page eventhough wifi shows connected. Have to disconnect and reconnect to get it working.

    And that's what aggrivates me I know I would have to change phones completely to get wifi to work right plus doesn't seem as if their going to push out another update soon to fix it. Tired of playing this game

    welp, looks like Froyo doesn't like any sort of WPA/WPA2 personal security. Changed the router to filter by mac address with no security and the wifi connection has been constant. Gotta love the testers at Verizon.

    Yeah may have to test that this has become aggravating

    Unlikely. You might get your upgrade date moved up so you can get the DInc or they may let you upgrade to the D2, but that's very unlikely as long as they have Droids in stock and being resupplied.

    I just called my D1 in and they tried all tests and the droid failed. They did not offer me a D2 or anything they said they will send out a refurb D1 to me in 2 days. How did you get the new one?

    Just showed up.


    They said they would NOT send me a D2 even after I joked with them.


    But then a D2 showed up stating they ran out of D1's

    I had a choice between the Incredible and the Ally. I decided to take the Incredible. I am glad that I did. It was not brand new but it was better then nothing. Got a charger and an extended battery out of the deal.
