Default Re: Will you move away from BlackBerry?

My 8330 was having problems scrolling some of the time, so I started looking at the new phone options from Verizon as I was eligible for an early upgrade anyway.
I ended up switching to a Droid X. I have had nothing but problems with it since Oct. 27. (I have until the 27th. of Nov. to return it)
It has been difficult to set up the email accounts, especially the outgoing server settings. Only 2 of my 5 accounts are currently working.
Since gmail comes standard with Droids, you are forced to use gmail for syncing. This has been a real challenge getting the Droid, gmail, and my contact manager to be on the same page. I loose contacts, they also get duplicated.
I have checked several Droid forum sites and it appears there are several problems with syncing the Droids.
As an independent sales agent, I live by emails and my contacts.
I've been on the phone with Verizon, Motorola and Companion Link for hours upon hours this past month and have not been able to resolve the issues.
Now I'm about 90% sure I will switch back to BB before my return date expires.
