Well it turns out about 2 weeks ago, I had decided to renew my two year contract on verizon by getting the iphone. After further research and what I have seen, the freedom of android is just too appealing to pass up. So my question is this, am I able to purchase the TB without a contract(600$ish?), activate it on my line, and then sell the Iphone I have, lets say on ebay, and get the off contract price on that too? Or does that not work because the iphone is on contract still? And one more question as I'm hear, along with 95% of TB buyers, I too fear the battery life. Since I live in Milwaukee, where 4g is not present, will I need to worry about disabling it or will it work fine and still conserve my battery? And have anyone tried using any of the battery saving apps in the marketplace with luck?
