Default How Many Activated Ally's Are Left?

I've been wondering this for a while and I finally decided to make a thread about it. Do you still have an activated Ally?

Actually I'm due for a new phone already and in feb. all 4 phones I have in my plan with Verizon will be out of contract. My Ally still does what I need it to do and the way Verizon has been going lately I'm not sure I want to stick with them.

Have 3 still activated. We can upgrade anytime, but they work great for what we use them for.

2 on velocity, and 1 stock my daughters, but she has a transformer tablet so only uses her phone for calls anymore.

I didnt want to upgrade but my son smashed in the dialer so people were being called...
Now with the razr but still developing on the ally for a little longer. I had to tear apart the ally to fix the button but only would do the task if i had another phone just incase...
the ally was and is a great phone from its time of release and with the support we leave behind. It will live on for people who need the roms that the phone desperately needs.

While my Ally is still activated, it's going to be a little disappointing that development will cease, as it used to be exciting seeing the development. It's only a matter of weeks before development is over, as when you guys go none of the rest of us know how to develop sadly (at least I think so). 2.3 coming? Well we will see if that happens, but this phone has made a good run. It also taught me the basics of rooting, as I was clueless before as to how to root or what is was. I got lucky rooting my phone, really lucky, but now I know and it helped a lot but since I don't get my upgrade til September, it will be a long way to taste development again.

Rooting is different with each device and is blocked on the higher end devices and newer procedures are needed to be taken. More difficult ones than what an ally user is used to. I want you guys to be aware of that.

Mine will be active until my contract expires in June. I'm eligible for early upgrade now, but I'd like to add two lines and I will be moving to Sprint unless Verzion makes some serious changes to their data pricing for multiple lines by then.

Besides, I really don't have any complaints. No-hassle wireless tethering (both infrastructure and ad-hoc) is huge.

Still using my Ally. Eligible for an upgrade at the end of this month, I think I will be taking advantage of that. Battery in the Ally is starting to die faster than ever and when I plug it in to charge the connection is getting loose and doesn't charge properly etc.

You better be sure you're done with Verizon before switching. Once you realize Sprint isn't the answer you'll either be stuck with a contract you hate or an etf in addition to losing unlimited data with verizon. What specifically are you looking for an improvement in?

While Velocity 1.2.1 has been out for a while, since I've been hosting a mirror for savoxis it's had 935 unique downloads. Of course there is no telling how many of these are the same individuals downloading from different computers or how many may still be actually in use, but interesting none the less.

My mom, sister, and I still use the Ally. I'm the only one of the three of us who has Velocity.

I might be upgrading to a Bionic or Galaxy Nexus (mmm. . .ICS) once my contract expires in July. Either that, or I'll just change to a new battery and flash rgocal's Bionix ROM in place of Velocity. Kinda interested in savoxis' 1.2.2 version of Velocity, though. . .

I'm using an Ally. I figure as long as there are roms to change the look/feel of the phone there's no need to get a new phone for just texting and calling people and the occasional weather lookup. I dont even need a smartphone to be honest.

I believe Savoxis is looking for an Ally to further the development of Velocity 1.2.2

Dautley if you leave ima slap you.... go get a preowned Bionic Now.... its only 29.99. Best decision you could make.

Also my wife still has the Ally until March. At which point I will get her a Bionic. My brother and sister-in-law still have the Ally on velocity 1 as well as my mother-in-law and father-in-law. So there are 5 that are still active. If someone needs testing done I will go back tk my Ally and test for you. I Have two Ally's

I wish that some of these awesome devs would come on board to the Bionic. It has three awsome roms but the deving community that was doing it has gone to the Razr.

Looking at Bionic. My Full contract will be up in Feb. so I can go through best buy, Amazon, or WalMart .
Apparently if your currant contract is grandfathered in from the New Every Two program, your eligibility date to upgrade from Verizon at a much higher price is earlier that the eligibility date from third party vendors, so waiting a few more months will save me around $200.00 depending on what I want to get.

Still rockin' the Ally.

Still no suitable slider replacement imo.

Stratosphere is *so* close, but doesn't quite make it.

If the price dropped on the Strat to 49 or free, I'd consider it.

We typically have tons of unused upgrades on our 5 lines of service, so that's not a factor.

DROID 3 is definitely a good replacement. I love mine so much. Probably upgrading to DROID 4 when it comes out.

Locked bootloader = Doesn't really matter, it still gets root and roms. I'm running ICS on my locked bootloader phone right now.

Non-removable battery = Doesn't matter either. A power cycle is easily done with a button combination that bypasses the software entirely. It works even when the entire phone is locked up

Well my ally is currently activated, but tomorrow i will be deactivating it as soon as my newly ordered droid razr maxx comes in the mail from verizon. I will say imma miss this community, as well as the great roms and things that have made this phone very fun and made rooting clear to me as to what it was. To all the devs, thanks for the great rom support because it was fun flashing many many roms. I will be testing velocity 1.2.2 beta 18 as my last rom with this phone activated, but i am pretty sure i will be open to test further roms or what not with this once im done. Ill check around every so often and leave feedback. Thanks.

And a general question to anyone, unless i should post elsewhere, but will roms for the razr work on the razr maxx? And all the time? Thanks again.

Yep, all RAZR roms work on the MAXX. They're the same exact phone, just one has a larger battery. They run the same software versions.

Okay good because on dumbass target tech dude when i first went was like "oh the maxx has the extended battery and a faster cpu" and i knew the faster cpu part was wrong cuz i do my research but it made me think. But so thatll be very convenient so for everything i can go do the razr thread. Thanks

I have mine as does my wife. I've rooted with Velocity. I am about to root the wife's. Great phone. The keyboard comes in handy with or without Swype and/or Speech to text. I don't see a reasonable replacement for the price yet. We got ours free for a two year agreement with Verizon over a year ago.

Still no suitable slider replacement imo.

Stratosphere is *so* close, but doesn't quite make it.

If the price dropped on the Strat to 49 or free, I'd consider it.

We typically have tons of unused upgrades on our 5 lines of service, so that's not a factor.
I've upgraded a line of service to a Moto D4. Been using it for about 5 days so far.

It's not perfect, but neither was the Ally. Overall I think its a very comparable replacement. I will probably upgrade the other lines of service soon. I prefer to remain on a single handset at a time...

I deactivated my Ally on Friday and switched the the Razr Maxx! I had a good run with the Ally, but I wanted to do more with my phone, and I wasn't able to due to the Ally's limitations. So, the day I could upgrade, I did.

I came from the Ally to the Bionic as well. Where did you get cm9? I would really like to have it. Is it fully functional? What update do you have to be on? Thanks in advance.

I still have two Ally phones active on my Verizon account; one is being used by my wife. There are two more I know of being used by in-laws. The day the warranty expired on all four of them is the day they were loaded with the Velocity ROM. Will keep them activated as long as they keep working.

2 here. Due in July. Thought I want an actual keyboard, but now that I am kind of getting used to the touchscreen, doesn't seem to mather much. Was thinking about keeping it, but with all the "SD card removed" issue lately, guess it is time to change.

upgrade to the LG spectrum at the beginning of February. Didn't have much a choice, Ally front screen blacked out and inside was already gone. It was a nicked ribbon :-(.
New phones a beast though.

Deactivated my Ally Monday and went to the Bionic with a extended battery. Yes the Razr and Razr Maxx are the latest and greatest but the Bionic is right behind them and CHEAP!
I seriously considered the Razr, but cheap is the main reason I went with Ally in the first place, and the Bionic is going to be a good enough replacement for the next two years.

i guess im a collector lol. i got three still activated on my accounts. not due for an upgrade until June. so little time to go i actually decided to root and install a custom ROM. was hard since a lot of the links are now dead and there's not much support. got enough ROMs to keep me occupied until then. Some of the newer ROMS make a world of difference!

Still using mine, although today it got its first real damage when I dropped onto some sidewalk concrete. Tiny crack in the screen just in the black by the Search icon. I'm thinking that come June, when my contract truly ends, we're going to revamp our entire mobile phone philosophy and switch over to prepaid. I'll get a good unlocked something or other from Swappa.com and put a $30/mo T-Mobile plan on it, and when I do, I'll have to decide what to do with the Ally.
