    well i currently have a blackberry curve 8330 and not its just blah. my girlfriend has the HTC incredible and i love that phone! im playing with it more than she is haha

    but want i want to know is i am on verizon and i am thinking of getting a Droid X.. do you think i should get one now? or should i wait for new phones that are coming out?

    get now or wait..

    is a very slippery slow to fight!!!!

    you can find yourself.. always waiting for the next rumored great phone!!!

    manufactures goal is to get you to upgrade...

    good luck.. :p

    It's likely that we won't see LTE Verizon phones until the middle of next year. First to be released will be wireless Internet cards.

    What do you normally use your phone for? Voice? Text? Email? What type of apps do you use on your BB?

    and dont forget.. when LTE is released...

    will you be among the lucky customers that live in the a LTE area?
    if you do live in area.. will it be fully functional the first 6 months it is out?

    True! That's one of the bigger question marks about LTE at the moment...

    so .. should it be part of the OP's equation to wait??

    like i said before...
    the waiting game is a lonely long one!

    if there is no good info on the next released phone.. that you love...
    then go for a phone now that you do love.

    bird in hand and all that ...:)
