So the tranny issue of stop and go..creeping along between 3-5MPH will certainly come in to play for me. For those of you with the 2012's, did the updates eliminate the tranny problem (DCT)?
I have a Droid X (original, not X2) and it is definitely compatible w/ MFT.

Can make calls, text and stream music. One bug I've noticed is that randomly when I get a text it will say it's from one specific person in my phone when it's actually from someone completely different. Whenever this bug occurs, it always displays it as from the same person, rather than the actual message sender. Not really sure why it does this, and it seems to be intermittent.

As for DCT, like another poster wrote, it is a little jerky in traffic, but also seems to be intermittent. I drive in DC traffic, and in the morning when I accelerate a tiny bit while crawling in traffic, that car will accelerate noticeably 2 or 3 times. This only seems to happen on cold mornings. I park in a parking garage during the day, and on the way home I don't notice the jerky-ness.
