    I've got a Moto Q and I love it. I've had it for about 2-3 weeks, I switch
    over from nextel (and my clunky i930, which I only have about a month)

    about how to connect to the EVDO network, Why would you want to disconnect
    from it? or are you saying that some areas dont' have EVDO, and once you ge
    tback in an EVDO area it wont' reconnect.?

    I've romed a few times off the EVDO network and I've always connected right
    when I get back in range.

    Besides that, it's a great phone, there are SO MANY 3rd party apps out
    there. (I have a nintendo emulator right nwo with about 6 games, also have
    an app that allows me to stream my XM radio, who needs to spend a few
    hundred bucks now for a portable XM player, when I've got my moto Q.

    the only grip I've heard about this phone are some bugs (my friends locked
    up on him once and wouldn't turn on til he removed the battery) and I've
    heard people complain about battery life (for me, comming from 6 years of
    nextel and a month with teh i930, this battery life was MUCH longer.)

    anyone else have these?

    yes you can stream sirius and XM on your phone, my friend has it with his
    phone, it works pretty well.
    I also downloaded a nintendo emulator for the Q (makes the Q like a gameboy,
    haha)

    my battary lasts a little over a day with the amount of e-mail I check and
    the calls I make. I'm also looking into the extended battery
