I've been on the DROID bandwagon since my 1st OG DROID (Still my favorite device) I have had nearly every Motorola branded DROID available. (The only two active now are My MAXX and my wife`s half dead X. It has a thumb sized solid black circle burned in the screen) I had been debating and researching for a while whether or not to get the RAZR or the GNex. So, by the time I made up my mind, the MAXX was out, and that finished making my decision right there. Well, I strolled on down to Verizon to pick up my new baby, and as luck (My Luck of course) would have it, they were sold out. No problem, there are many Verizon stores close by that I can check out. I tried three more (Dang it) all sold out! Arrg!! Well, me being the impatient type that I am, I just decided to go with the Galaxy Nexus with extended battery...BIG Mistake. I had that thing two days, but was ready to take it back after the first. Well, to make a long story short. I returned the Gnex, ordered my RAZR MAXX, got it two days later through FedEx. and haven`t even thought about that Galax whatever....lol. Anyway, First off, about this forum's community. I'd like to start off by saying, having been on forums similar to this (Or forums that should be like this IMHO) since I had my first Windows Mobile Phone. I have never felt more welcome as I do here. Iv'e been a member of lots of forums over the years, but usually, because of the atmosphere of the forum I'm on at the time. I would just lurk,read,and download what I needed, then leave, and would never type a single word or phrase, because most everyone there would always seem so full of themselves. Anytime you'd even attempt to converse with someone, they would just ignore you like you weren't even there. While doing research on which phone to buy, I stumbled across this site. I lurked for a while, because I wasn't sure if it was going to be another run of the mill forum or not. Turns out, the more I lurked around, and read posts, I saw something that I haven't seen on other forums before, that was people getting along with one another. Noobs asking questions and getting non smart mouthed answers. Right then, I broke my silence for the first time on any forum. I feel at home here, and it feels great! Sure, everyone will disagree from time to time but, that`s human nature. It`s gonna happen but, one thing Iv`e noticed, is that we are all pretty tight knitted here. Even when spats do occur, they last for a very short time, then everyone is friends again, and go right back to helping one another like nothing happened (Just like family lol). One other thing I`d like to just point out. Unlike a lot of other forums Iv'e been a part of over the many years, Nobody here treats Noobs like they're crap. Just because they don`t come in already knowing everything, and that says a lot about this sites members. You let a Noob go to any other forum and ask a simple question, and just sit back and see how many times he/she gets told to learn how to use the f`n search bar and never receives any help at all, It`s sickening. Every single person on this and every other forum, was once a novice/noob. (It's seems like some people start gaining knowledge, then forget to pay it forward.) That`s one of the single greatest things about this site, is that everyone is treated equal, and do their best to help out or at least point you to someone who can help. Whether it be Mods, Admins, Members, Donating Members, Themers. Everyone is treated the equal, and I love it. And one more thing. Your actually allowed to speak as you feel (Within Reason, there are kids that come here too) without getting banned. What a concept. Those other forums could learn a lot from DROIDRZR.com.I've seen people get banned from other sites for just asking an Admin a question he didn't feel like being bothered with. (That's terrible) This site helps keeps me sane. I'm able to get on here and talk to people that don`t know you or look down upon you. It`s great. I can see myself here at DROIRZR.COM for very long time. Thanks, from me, to EVERYONE here.:) Even if I don`t win anything, I wish Great Luck to those that enter. And Mega thanks to DirtyDroidX and DroidRzr.com for doing this. (Hey TSON) you asked in another thread where all the donations go...Well, Here`s your answer bub. :) Oh, I forgot to mention. I have the Maxx and I have to do everything on it, it`s my primary internet source. Sorry for the extremely long post.
