Cheapest place at the moment is probably Verizon at $599. That's what I had to do. I could never do 2 GB or even 6 GB per month. I'm already at 12 GB and it's 3 days into my cycle.

However, I'm thinking about unrooting it, returning it to Verizon, paying an extra $100 to buy it at Best Buy for $699, rooting it, enjoy it, then when the Note 3 comes out, if it blows me away, unroot G2, return it, get my $699 back, go to Verizon, and buy the Note 3.

My wife says it's borderline money laundering, but I do it all the time. I've got "elite" status at Best Buy Reward Zone, so I have 45 days to return.
Yeah every review I read seems to indicate the same.

I am going to wait for the Note 3 to come out and then make a decision from there. I have my Dad's old Bionic to hold me over until the end of month and hopefully my saved Android ad revenue can just let me buy the phone outright.

I really don't want to upgrade and lose unlimited data or go to Verizon Edge due to it being a huge ripoff from everything I have read.
