This phone is fantastic. A lot of reviews here about how there is no upgrade to Android 2.1, but if you are fairly tech savvy, or know someone who is... not a problem. Root you phone (Google "root motorola cliq xt" for instructions), overclock it, and install the 2.X firmware. BAM my phone is now on par with other Android devices twice as expensive and running. I am currently running 2.3.3 Android firmware and it is running great. Even if you don't upgrade, the phone is still really cool. Not quite as powerful as a full fledged Android or iPhone without the root, but it is still pretty awesome. I like the Motoblur features. Turns your phone into a one stop shop for all your social networking at the tip of your fingers. 99% of us don't even need 2.X unless you just HAVE to have wireless tether or angry birds. LOL. Sure, the stock version doesn't run many of the Android apps, but for the money, you will be hard pressed to find anything better. 5 STARS
