Lightbulb Need a new (used) Android. $200 for Verizon...

Looking for recommendations..

Currently with a Bionic. Need 4G (good radio), need root'ability, tons of multimedia usage, tons of tethering, tons of email, news reading, etc. I go through quite a few charge cycles a day, its in my hand from 6am until 10pm.. but, i have access to a charger all day, so dont need a premium battery setup.

Looking at roughly $200, give or take $25. SG3? Razr variation? Rezound? Any others that i might be missing?

Can the first Sammy Note be flashed to Verizon?

Gnex sounds like your best option if you are looking for rootability

First gen Note is GSM only so you won't be able to use it on Verizon.
If you're signing a new contract and can get a discounted price the SGS3 would be a good option. Otherwise, the Gnex is your best bet.

I can't take a contract renewal, it'll have to be a CL or Swappa buy.

Doesnt the gnex have a ton of reception issues?

It's certainly not the best for reception. Mine works fine but I'm in a very strong area so I've no problems. If you're in a fringe area, I'd recommend a Moto phone.
