hi frnds just wanna share some information with u...i bought my milestone a month ago as m a gadget freak i loves to change phones n dis one is d most powerful phone i hv ever seen. screen resolution screen quality everything is perfect n touch is awesome.easy to use with a gud battery life....n yes my frnd have x10 bought it 2 months ago n now his phone is gone to the service center bcoz of motherboard problem...before he used to tease me dat his phone is better but nw he regrets of buying x10.....milestone rocks go for dis one.....
Everybody speaks about the android functions. What about the phone's reception? It is very poor, compared with any Samsung Omnia or Nokia. I also have problem to synchronize with Outlook. Bluetooth's phone agenda, with systems like Parrot handsfree, doesn't work. Any Windows Mobil is better.
Forgot to mention, my comments are for the Moto Droid. Not sure how well rooting works for the Milestone.
The moto Droid is now officially discontinued in the US. There is a new Droid 2 that will be coming out, which has a better keyboard and a slightly faster processor. It's not worth upgrading if you already have the Droid, but might be worth waiting for.
Also, Froyo requires less ram than 2.1 or older but has additional features, and Froyo actually runs faster than 2.1 or older. Google optimized the code a bit.
Reason to root your phone: Overclock the cpu, I'm running 1.2Ghz(ultra-low voltage) and the battery lasts as long as stock.
Use the newest android OS, I've been using Froyo 2.2 for the past month or so.
More customizing options.

Anyway original droid getting froyo that a good start. Let us wait for next week http://www.androidjunkies.com/index.php/2010/07/26/verizon's-high-end-android-phones-to-receive-froyo-august-6th/
2.2 for milestone is coming ??
Rumor: Android 2.2 Hitting DROID1, DROID X Next Friday?
The guys at AndroidSpin have received word from what they believe to be a reliable source within the Verizon camp that Android 2.2 could possibly hit the Droid 1, Droid X and Incredible all next week starting on August 6th.
If this actually happens, it might be the greatest day in the history of the Droid Family.
Reminder, this is a rumor and this date could change, so take it for what it’s worth.
i have it and i love this mobile.Android is great!!!!!!!!And guys it will get 2.2 update so don't worry!!!!!!!!!!
Whats the big deal about having or not having 2.1 Froyo ?
i understand that the update will bring new features to phone over the already existing ones , but this not a reason to hate an entire company (Motorola in this case)
besides : the Droid\Milestone already have an impressive features , hardware & built quality , not as good as the Droid X , but its still a great phone with or without Froyo.
If you don't like Droid\Milestone switch back to a Nokia phone & see how that workout for you !!!
personally i haven't got a MileStone yet (i'll get very soon due to availability issues in my country)
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2010Hey buddy,I brought milestone because of few reasons:First and foremost,we dont get nexus one ... moreThanx man. We are all waiting for moto official word about froyo update. Some Web sites are saying froyo update is on pending or they doubt. This doesn't mean no froyo. Let wait and see.
Anmol Sood, 25 Jul 2010guys i need some important advice.. im an living in india.. n here da droid is called da miles... moreSorry you have to wait for an official word from moto. At this stage nobody knows if yes or no milestone will get froyo. Let me tell you X10 user are waitting for 2.1 but milestone user are waitting for 2.2 and no device have upmate to froyo officially except nexus 1 which is a google phone. You live in India that perfect because the milestone xt720 is available and cost Rs 30000. Okay let us wait for moto official word about froyo and hope we won't be disappointed.
Droid x, 25 Jul 2010Anonymous, I wish, I could see your name. I respect your opinion but let see what will happen ... moreHey buddy,I brought milestone because of few reasons:First and foremost,we dont get nexus one in India(Am residing in India),secondly,my observations and going through almost all the comments provided by power users like all we here at gsm and other forums plus reading all the reviews over the net, I came to know that apart from nexus, this is the only phone getting regular updates, so the obivious reason for me to buy this phone and I personally dont have any regrets for purchasing such an OUTSTANDING computer[oops,I meant cellphone :)].Now,that I call them cheaters is because,previously they(moto ppl)advertized this phone as Flash 10.1 ready (While,I was purchasing this phone with android 2.1, I almost knew about Froyo and the ability of Flash in Froyo).SO, I thought that after the release of Froyo,say about 3 to 4 months later the phone should have flash.Now, that I read elsewhere that Froyo is doubtfull on milestone and now that there is no FLASH READY advertizement on their website makes me think that Froyo wont be for milestone and thats what make them cheaters,it is they who advertized it and now that they are not ready to give or live with their promises, so am just tryin to help others to think twice before going to purchase this cellphone.Apart from this I recommend a 100% buy for this phone.
