This is a fantastic phone. It does everything I need it to do to run my business while I am traveling or at the office. I stay in touch with my emails, and text messages, as well as my Linkedin Network, and Facebook friends.

I especially like the slide out keypad. It makes it much easier for texting, and answering emails as well as searching the web.

I am considering switching providers, but have not done so yet waiting to see if I can unlock the phone. I like the phone enough that if I can't unlock it to switch carriers, I will probably stay put rather than switch to another phone.

I want a new phone.

Now I own Nokia N900 - old, without new aplications etc ... Is this phone good for replace it?

How it is with battery (on internet, or is possible to replace it)? Where you bought it, I'm from Europe - ebay?

Live in Ontario -- stock JB works fine with full service and everything on Virgin mobile. Recently upgraded to CM11, also works fine, but you NEED to install the Verizon CDMA Patch (just google that, you'll find Internauta37's patch on his blog)

first off all id like to say i did not write this in order bash or hate on motorola just thought id give some people a heads up about the droid 4. This phone phone about 2 years old, I love Motorola, but even I have to point out the specs are poor and outdated,the battery is acually worse than the droid razr which I didn't beleave was possible,there is not enough ram it says 1gb of ram but you only really get about 850mb left the rest used by the system, the OMAP processor does not help out this phone at all,it heats up,they really should of gone with a tegra,or snapdragon...or something thatas not an OMAP plus there aren't that many developers left that support it so cyanogonmod and other roms seems to be its last hope if you want to be up to date on android for like maybe one or two more versions with this phone,and ps its not going to get android 4.4 kitkat upate from motorola or verizon and will remain on 4.1.2 if you dicide to stick to the stock software. if not then thats were custom roms come in,i will however say that the keyboard is really good,its as good as it gets when it come to qwerty keyboards on phones,and the desighn of the phone is also good as well, in fact most of motorolas phones are really good quality, i have the droid razr, razr hd, (main phone) even there failed droid xyboard tablet,and i wrote this entire comment...using a droid 4 so im not just randomly hating on this phone, basically what i want to say is that if your planing on getting this phone as your main phone, and you know your gonna be stuck with it for a while,i urge you to reconsider looking for a different phone,unless you dont use your phone at all or just arent convinced or better yet into a more recent model from motorola, such as the moto x,or the moto g, or soon to be moto e, or you can just go to there website. if your still not convinced,are your still getting this phone, good luck, and heres just a list of things to google that will make it somewhat usable:
what is root ?
droid 4 root
xposed installer
webtop (the reasone i got the phone in the first place)
xda developers (if you need help with anything android or linux)
reohstate ram expander

I don't know where you live, but I can use it in Europe without unlocking.

You need to have android ICS above, someone said.
There are lots of site how to upgrade android os if necessary.

According to the specs the droid 4 has. adobe flash. But according to news a while back adobe had pulled the plug on flash for android phones. So does the droid 4 have adobe flash? Secondly I watched a you tube video on this phone. It states that even though.the phone has an 8mp camera it is poor quality compered to other 8mp phones. But that droid 4 was running.on gingerbread. Is there any improvement on ICS. Thanks for your time. Regards nijinski

This phone is really good. Keyboard is nice and easy to use even with my large hands. Screen is sharp and clear. Storage is 16GB internally, so I heardly use my external SD card memory. It works with GSM network if Android is upgraded to ICS or above. In UK, you need to set GSM network (not automatic), otherwise the signal is very weak somehow. Only downside woudl be LTE is only 700MHZ, so I cannot use 4G LTE in UK. This phone is now nearly 2 years old anyway, but still work fast without any problem. You can get a decent second hand ones around 70-90 pounds from ebay. So it is very worth trying if you want to need a full keyboard with your mobile phone.
