Summary: A relative and I bought this phone as an Unlocked World phone, little did we know the phone is actually restricted for certain carriers. Verizon unlocked my phone to go to any carrier outside the United States. I traveled out of country and I quickly realized after 2 years and numerous battery replacements and unresponsive GPS that this phone does not last more than 3 hours of continuous use. I do not like Apple products, but Apple's battery life is amazing.
A rushed to market product with awful customer support.

Summary: Although a few pros exist (primarily the physical keyboard), the combination of hardware (the "media area" which exists specifically to allow for the moving of apps to sd is non-functional), software and insufficient/sub-par support has convinced me never to purchase a Motorola device again.
Don't buy it unless you can find it cheap. Makes a nice MP3 palyer at best

Summary: I originally bought this phone because on paper, it looks like a true powerhouse. The device has a 1 GHZ dual core processor, 512 MB of ram (the same a xbox 360 or PS3 has), and a pretty decent battery (1540 mh/h). So, with the basic specs out of the way, let me start with whats good about this device (Don't worry, this wont take long): It has great phone quality on both sides, above average signal reception, the screen is very responsive and accurate, the keyboard is...
Summary: This is my first Android phone, I recognize that all implementations are different but this one made me seriously question my decision to avoid Apple or go back to my (now beloved) Blackberry. Ill caveat this by saying I am a heavy corporate email user and rely on my phone as an extension of my work -> if this you, avoid this phone at all costs.
Pros: Screen size, camera, video (I honestly couldn't come up with more, I tried, really)
Cons: - Buggy , - Poor sync with corporate email/address book, - Bad, unintuitive UI, - Loaded with unremovable bloatware, - Syncing files with computer unnecessarily complicated, - Simple tasks require too many commands
Pros: Love the available apps and the keyboard I can see.
Cons: Droid3 #1 is possessed. Apps turn on and off by themselves and so does the phone itself. First replacement would not activate. Second replacement would not charge. Third replacement arrived today. We shall see if this one will work.
Excerpt: While there are many things I like about this phone, I have had a lot of problems with it. I have trouble getting calls to send through and end up conference calling peop,e from my contacts all of the time. Very irritating.
Pros: Pretty zippy compared to older versions of the Droid.
Cons: I've had this for almost 2 months. This crashes a lot! It also randomly just restarts. The camera on this Droid 3 is HORRIBLE! Any cheap $20 camera is better than this one. Blue cast, and a lot of pix out of focus. Very slow camera in focusing. Also, the
