DROID 4 User Guide Available for Download

Check “user guide” off the list of DROID 4 things that we need to see prior to launch. The phone is already official, plus we know that VZW is likely planning to launch it at $249, so we really are just waiting for a launch date at this point.

Be sure to check out our hands-on with the device here.

    a physical keyboard is one reasone i retired my original droid, addd a ton of weight to the phone and I never used it once, but some folks want it

    “Note: This product uses a non-removable battery. The battery should only be replaced by a Motorola-approved service facility. Any attempt to remove or replace your battery may damage the product and void your warranty.”


    And I really wanted to want this phone.  Let’s see… I want a physical keyboard, want to stay on Verizonl, would like to be able to take advantage of 4G if it ever gets near my house… Guess I’ll have to see if I can stand Touchwhiz (see what I did there?) on the Strat.  I know it’s been rooted, and I think I saw where CWM is available.  Hold up seems to be the LTE radio. sigh… I really love my OG.

    …..and here is the code to unlock the bootloader….OOPS,sorry my bad…..

    I don’t understand why anyone would buy this or any Motorola product especially with how they’re dealing with the locked bootloaders. Lets ignore our customers and hopefully they’ll just quit. My biggest mistake was buying the bionic..I don’t even use it I bought my friends tbolt and the bionic is now a 300.00 paperweight . Don’t waste 250.00 on this when the galaxy nexus and rezound are out and clearly better spec’d phones. This whole situation with the bootloaders just turned me away from scamorola for good.

      Maybe because most people don’t care at all about locked bootloaders and a decent number of people would prefer a keyboard?  

      • Sporttster

        Funny thing that…. they begin to care when they find out what it does for them….

        • Pts23

          I found out and I still don’t care.

      But they don’t have physical keyboards. Period. I will never buy a smart phone that doesn’t have one.  I am still using and loving my (rooted) Droid 2 Global after upgrading from my D1.  I will upgrade to whatever the best physical keyboard phone is when my NE2 comes up in September.  Hopefully, it will be the Droid 5 by then the way Moto has been pushing out phones lately.  I would hesitate to buy a locked phone without a known root method, but locked bootloaders alone affect my interest very little.

        agree completely.  i want a well built sold feeling phone and the droid line is that.  the nexus feels cheap, great screen but cheap.

  • Postdante

    hmm, don’t you think that GUI is pretty awful? who took money for it?
    as ugly as back (butt) of this phone.

  • Csd

    Just release this damn phone already its ready to go

  • Taylordaniels1

    I thought that I would regret getting the Razr knowing this was coming out soon. But as I continue to use it, I’m happy with it and will wait for the next phone with a qwerty keyboard, once my upgrade is here next year.

  • Have the winners of the tether contest already been picked?

  • I feel so bad for my buddy that got the Droid 3 a couple months ago.

    • Seeker

      Why? His phone is global ready, the Droid 4 is not.

      • Taylordaniels1

        but it will be enabled later on

          i wonder being that it has a physical gsm slot, if it can jump to another network with a foreign sim card in…

          That Phonescoop article sounds like they misinterepeted the rep about the Droid 4 and Spectrum getting global updates.
