Default Need used cdma phone, which is best???

Current Phone Droid X
System Version: 4.5.621.MB810.Verizon.en.US
Android Version: 2.3.4
Baseband Version: BP_C_01.09.15P
Kernel Version: mcbk83@il93lnxdroid08 #1
Build Number: 4.5.1_57_DX8-51

I am switching from Verizon to Page Plus Cellular (Verizon cdma service, 3G only). I would like to purchase another phone to be my primary phone and have the Droid X as a backup. I stream music, use text for work, and do some browsing. I do not watch videos, play games, etc. My criteria are:
1. Used phone (either for sale as 'new' on ebay or used in very good condition) that is cdma as Verizon has best coverage where I live.
2. Easy to modify (root, then customize) and with decent options for modification.
3. Under $150.

I was thinking of a Droid X2 (around $75 used or $125 for "new/overstocked/demo" on ebay), but found some used Droid razr's in good condition that are around $125. The advantage to the razr is that it is 4G, thus if Page Plus goes 4G, I won't have to upgrade my phone. However, PP will probably not upgrade to 4G anytime soon, so I could save some money by getting a Droid X2. Besides the 4G, razr has better screen and 16GB internal memory. Processors appear to be a wash as X2 has tegra2 vs TI in razr. I am unfamiliar with other non-motorola android options. Is there anything that would be as good as the Droid X2 or Razr for around $75 - $125? If not, what makes more sense, X2 or Razr?
