Motorola’s turning this negative Exchange issue on the Droid X into a positive (for you consumers, anyhow, until FroYo is ready for the device) by offering complimentary licenses for the TouchDown Exchange app available in the Android market. Many users have heralded TouchDown as the most well-rounded Exchange ActiveSync experience for Android – a majority of commenters in the market swears by it alongside any other solution to date.


How can you get in on the fun? Follow the instructions below (sensitive information obviously needed to verify you have a Droid X).

To request a Touchdown license from Motorola, please send an e-mail to, and include the following information.

Your email address
Your name (for validation purposes)
Your Droid X cell number (for validation purposes)
Your Droid X DEC and HEX MEID numbers – dial *#06# to find them.
Please indicate what your issue is – for example: “I don’t get notifications when my Exchange email arrives.”

Once these items have been verified, a Touchdown license will be sent to you at the email address you provide. (Supplies permitting.) Our goal is to respond within 24 hours. I’m sorry, but refunds are not available for owners who have already purchased Touchdown.

Don’t own a Droid X? You’ll still have to purchase the app yourself, but it’s now gotten a permanent price drop to $20 – down $10 from the price it was introduced at. If there were any time to pull the trigger on buying this app, I’d say it’s now.
