Well, seeing how often some people upgrade, and how often some do not. I was curious to know how people came across there Droids/Smartphones. I try to have the best phone I can, just simply because I have a big space in my heart for technology. I can't afford that much because I am a student so I usually wait for a NE2. Which is what I did for my Incredible, and sold my Storm 2 to pay the difference. Also my best friend works for Verizon Corporate and she gets phones by going over her quota. So every so often I get lucky with that. Example: When the first Storms came out she won two and she traded me the two for a full stereo system installed in her Jeep. (Boyfriend is in automotive field). Do you pay full price for your phone, if so why? Do you only do your NE2? If so, why? Do you wait till you get one for free either by gift, or by hand me down? ETC.
