    I have a Samsung Fascinate and I will say that when I lived in Atlanta the reception was pretty poor until there was an update for the phone. After that the reception improved by leaps and bounds. Now that I live in Colorado the reception is not as good. We have three Android phones in the house right now. My girlfriends OG Droid, our "home phone" Droid Eris and my Samsung Fascinate. In our house, none of them get great 3G coverage. Comparing bars the Eris and the OG Droid get one more bar than my Samsung Fascinate does. However, when looking at the signal they are all at -83 dBm and each phone gets roughly the same speed when doing a 3G speed test. This tells me that the signal is the same for all three phones and my Samsung just doesn't register bars the same way the other phones do. It also tells me that we just have horrible 3G coverage here. Thank God for Wifi. ;)

    From the people I know and the phones I've messed with, the Droid Charge has really good reception and the 4G/3G appears to work really well. My parents both have the Samsung Captivate and it works really well for them just about everywhere, except my house. :rolleyes:

    Overall I think you will be fine, but you still have the extended return period if you just find that the reception is really bad.

    Yes because I can. ;)

    Yup hear you man. I guess I dont mind that as much as VZW putting their grubby mitts on my Nexus.

    Like others have said, I know rooting will remove the apps, and I can always buy a new back cover. Just a bit annoyed that VZW did this though.

    P3's scratch...
    This thread slowed down suddenly.

    But yup, I can confirm that the testman site is down!
    But the Casio phone is coming out today, like dubbin said, it's probably that.

    Yeah - I'll be checking from the app and I use my phone and/or ipad just about everywhere but it's still easy to fall behind. :D

    (Unfortunately they are too busy playing with their phones to see that) :(

    Agreed, I would download the My VZN app anyway and the backup of contacts will probably get deleted. Stretch to call it bloatware especially after seeing my daughter's new Bionic and all the preloads on that. I did hear though that if you delete them the phone will spontaneously ignite rendering it useless so until Mythbusters can confirm this I may just leave it on.

    Just got a call back from someone at the Northern California executive staff, and it was pointless. She said any information is highly confidential. She even went as far as to say they couldn't give a date even if they had one because it is subject to change and THEN she says "you know, if it had to be recalled to the manufacturer or something". Hopefully she was just using that as an example of a worst case scenario and why they don't give out a date. :/

    If they're updating it, it might be down temporarily during the process.

    Even your Droid X wants you to buy the GNex. Kind of like when your wife says if she dies she wants you to remarry, but only to a certain type of woman. ;)
