It looks like our X2's are facing a ban tomorrow!

Personally, I'm going to flaunt mine around Verizon stores and laugh at everyone when they get super jealous.

I really think this is payback and does more good than harm. All of us put together couldn't do much (read our efforts on BBB complaints) but thanks to M$, we may very well get some well needed payback... However, I am disappointed that the ban doesn't effect newer devices. It seems to be effecting only 3G devices... Is this something related to the radio technology?

I don't effing care if Motorola can never sell a single device from now on, since that is what I exactly want. What do they say, oh yeah: Payback's a bitch! Hellya!

That...really blows. Seems like the RAZR and Bionic are the only ones unaffected.

Kinda makes you wonder if that's another reason for the lack of support we never got from Motorola....

You're more than likely right. When they (Motorola) got hip to the infringement, they didn't want to invest resources towards a dying product.

Moto says the issue can be fixed with a patch which would remove the feature.

LoL, I expect Moto isn't happy to have to make a patch for all the older phones.

I was thinking this too, but it's probably because they just did not care about us enough. The X2 was a good phone when it was launched, but it definitely did not receive the hype a phone like the Nexus or Galaxy S III got.

Only reason this phone ain't as good as a nexus is the locked bl. If not for that it would be better IMO.

Nexus's specs are better too. Nexus has better ram and 4g among otherthings. The nexus radio sucks though.
