Great phone have been using it for a double of weeks now. Only minus which is a big minus is the ridiculously bad battery. This is supposed to be a phone butnafter a couple of hours of making a few calls and searching the web it's dead. I have a charger at home in the office and in the car but that is not a solution. Hate walking around with the charger in my hand. I don't care how amazing a phone is if the battery is weak then then phone is useless. Great phone shame about the lousy battery life. This phone makes the iphone battery which is not great seem amazing.

1. Verizon's USA non-GSM service and
2. GSM services provided by Verizon's overseas services.
An unlock code that was provided to me by the vendor (WElectronics) got it to work with my provider here in Pakistan (and I am told will work anywhere - EXCEPT the GSM networks of USA based providers like AT&T and TMobile).

"unlocking" means of course you can use other SIM from any service provider.
Can someone please explain what this "lock" term refers to. I'm planning to buy either the Droid Pro or the Milestone 2, but everyone is talking about the phone/service being locked. What does this mean to a regular user? And what does "unlocking" the phone mean for the service provided?
Motorola Droid Pro to get maintenance software update
Motorola has announced it is pushing a maintenance software update for the Motorola Droid Pro. Though this is not an upgrade to Android 2.3, as there is still one smartphone running Gingerbread, and more, it is not a Honeycomb. As we know Android 3.0 is being developed for mobiles but if everything would be OK, other devices will run it too like the Google Android Tablets that are going to be launched in March, 2011.
According to the official changelog this update brings:
Better audio on voice calls Improved stability and performance Global Mode no longer resets when connecting to a USB charger. Visual Voice Mail now detects airplane mode while Wi-Fi is active

The feel is great really well built. The battery life is fine as I use the phone and Internet a lot. It's a great phone and if one has a data plan definitely better than a blackberry.

Looks like, the phone will be exactly what I need. If you have the time, can you give your impressions on it? Like battery life, feel, etc. Thanks!
Hi Rod I am using my droid pro in the middle east and is working on gsm,umts and the CDMA is switched off. It can use all frequencies and have immediately been able to upgrade my phones software.

HTC Desir... more320 x 480 is fine for a 3.1 screen. If it were 240 x 320, like htc wildfire, then it would have been horrible.
Also I think they might have tried to keep the price low.
Hey guys! Have some questions to you, as I can not waste a big chunk of money just to later find out, that the phone will not work for me...
I am planning to get an unlocked one from the US, and use it in Europe. My question is, if I use my SIM card, is the phone able to use all GSM and 3G frequencies?
Also, is it possible to turn off CDMA on the phone to save battery? (I imagine it uses a separate antenna using battery as well?)
Plus: Is it possible to upgrade the Android software on this phone later on?

I have used it for 2 days and it works very well. The only glitch was it kept crashing (requiring battery removal) when I placed an 8gb memory card. Once I switched to the shipped 2gb card, its working normally
Moto Droid Pro: 320 x 480 pixels, 3.1 inches
iphone4: 640 x 960 pixels, 3.5 inches
HTC Desire HD: 480 x 800 pixels, 4.3 inches
Why Droid-Pro's screen resolution is so low?
No I meant between the cost of the phone the Fedex shipping paid different sites for the unlocking key which did not work and the hours on the phone from dubai to us talking to verizon came to a USD 1000. Unlocking here actually finally took a couple of hours and USD 30. I am just surprised why all the attention is for touch screens allowing blackberry to rule the market for qwerty phones for business use. If there was a htc droid keyboard I would not have wasted my time with verizon. First and last time.

For US$1000, one can probably even fly to US, open an account, and simply pay for the contract for 2 years in advance, and probably can get the phone unlocked immediately.
I paid around US$30 to unlock my Cliq last summer, which I thought was kinda expensive. Not sure if it should cost anymore to unlock this phone.
Too bad I already bought 8 Moto Android phones last year and this phone isn't exactly on my priority list, though still want to get one.
Wow wish I knew after buying the phone having it shipped to dubai calling different sites to unlock paying for them which at the end did not work and then finallyngetting it unlocked costs me USD 1000. This is not to mention the countless hours I spent with verizon in the U S that were absolutely useless. They said I had to be on U S soil to have the phone initially unlocked and operational with a valid verizon contract and after 60 days they can provide me the unlock code for international use. I asked them then why did one of their representative agents sell me the phone if that was the case. They said I had to take it up with the agent. Maybe that's why everyone I know has cancelled with verizon and shifted to t mobile or AT&T .
