    A phone needs to be a phone, first and foremost, in my like of work. I (and egomaniacal clients) will not put up with one-way audio, dropped calls, lousy data connection, all of which plague Sammy's devices. Not to mention a tendency to a "plastic" build quality. Moto has at least locked down the radios and solid build (as well as the boot loader) ;)

    So I will live with my DX (which has rarely dropped a call) until a "real" phone comes to market, which will hopefully have the bells and whistles that other so-called flagship phones have.

    +1 from me too.

    Samsung has proven they can get it somewhat right....I dont remember the GS2 having alot of phone related issues. Need to hit up Sprint forums. For some reason GSM devices just seem to not have many phone related problems.

    And Moto cant hit a home run all the time....the Bionic is an example. I do know there are ppl that have no issues...but most that switched to another phone absolutely hate it.

    But I agree 100%. In my phone history...that dates back to before Android even came out....Moto has been good to me. Samsung...not so much. But I still gave the G Nex a shot...Our experiences dictate whether we trust or dont trust a manufacture. I often find it odd that ppl complain about Moto phones and phone related issues. It happens tho..lol.

    And I might pre order the GS3...lol. Hey...I got 14 days...I might be a guinea pig for yall....

    I keep saying the same thing but I think the release of Galaxy S III versions by other carriers, the delays in resolving the customs issues resulting from the ITC exclusion order against HTC, the pending ITC exclusion order against MMI combined with the Motorola-Google merger and the seemingly associated focus on the China market all may have left little option other than the Galaxy S III being the next VZW release and happening soon.

    Purely speculation but I'm guessing that the Incredible 4G and Droid Fighter/Razr HD release may now be tied to supporting the shared data plan implementation and/or the iphone 5 release.

    I am so ready to jump, then the voice of reason spoke up. I seriously do not like Samsung, but sooooo much want to upgrade and keep unlimited data......

    Unfortunately for those of us still rocking 3G phones, we might not have the option to wait... I think i'm going to get on the pre-order list for the S3, and lock in unlimited for now. Then if we get confirmation of the HD before the S3 is released and can get it at the subsidized price with unlimited change my order.

    So some disheartening news - my wife just upgraded to an iPhone (had unlimited data) and verizon stripped the unlimited data based on the May 18th announcement...I'm on the phone fighting customer service right now about it.

    THAT SUCKS! First I've heard of this happening. It's gotta get worked out. If not, and others follow suit, I wouldn't want to be a VZW CSR!

    How did she upgrade? Verizon website, store, or phone? Or via BB or Amz?

    Verizon store - she did it while I was at a hockey game, and I came home and looked over all the paper work and saw that her line was set to 2GB...my line still has unlimited though.

    Welp, i just ordered the S3. Guy on the phone said it was going to be shipped out on June 9th. Which is kinda quick?

    Also i got a $100 off, which was nice. I didnt get $100 off last month when i tried out the maxx for like a week.

    I bet he said July 9th...
    Pre-order For Verizon’s Galaxy S3 is Live Now, “Ships by July 9″ – Droid Life

    So you got it for $100 (or $150 if you got the 32GB version)? Nice.

    Personally, I was burned too much by the radio in the GNex to preorder a S3 - but I'll be paying close attention to the release day user feedback.

    I'm still hoping to get the Fighter someday - though at this rate I'll be using it while in my flying car.

    I love my Droid X and I was hoping for the HD to come out soon, but the S3 will beat it to the market and I need to lock in my unlimited data! So I will probably jump ship.

    I also had the black spots on my X, so I went for a Maxx. I have three days left to return the Maxx, so here's my question: I fully intend to get the HD when it comes out. Do I hold the Maxx and sell it in the after market or do I trade the Maxx for an SIII and sell that in the after market? Which will command a higher price?

    Just a guess, but as soon as the HD hits the market, VZW will start GIVING away the Maxx for a penny to new contracts, $49 for upgrades. So I THINK the Maxx will be next to worthless at that time. IMO.

    Maybe not. The market for slightly used 4G phones might be good once tiered plans are forced on upgrades...
