    What's up everyone, level27 here and a fan of android, htc, google, you know; all that good stuff. I have been thinking lately and it has occurred to me that I have a total of 3 options that I can do to satisfy my little droid heart in the upcoming future for me and my phone options to choose from. Also I am sure a lot of you are in the current same boat as me, so hopefully we all can give each other some advice here and talk out our plans and decisions for our cell phone future. So Currently, I am on T-Mobile, my contract is up on April 14, and originally I was planning on terminating my line with them, and hopping on a Verizon family shared plan with the oh so fabulous Nexus One. That is, if it is out by then for Verizon. I am sure we all heard that rumored March 23 nonsense that was an obvious Fail. So I can do that, which I am thinking I wanna do, because I know Verizon has great service where I live, all my Verizon buddies always get good service plus I travel on the road a lot with my band, and when we are out in the middle of no-where, my bass player has 5 bars on Verizon 3G, where as I'll barely have 1 or 2 bars on T-Mo Edge. Maybe because I am not on T-Mobile 3G, the service out there on the road isn't as great, but generally speaking wherever and whatever I have done in the past and places I've gone, T-Mobile has never let me down, or disappointed me in anyway, I just know Verizon is the top dawg. So option 2, if Nexus One don't see the life of day under Verizon by the time my contract on T-mo is up, (since I have been patiently waiting for the Nexus for two months now, watching vids, reading articles, and falling in love with it more as each minute passes my patience is almost up!) I terminate my family line (which is consisting of me and three other friends) and sign up for a new contract and get the super fancy subsidized discount price for the Nexus One on the individual 500 plan on the google site, then once that comes, go to a T-mo store and add my buddies to my line for a family plan and divid up cost again (Like we are doing now). Again, I would be with T-Mobile still, but Id have 3G this time, rather than Edge, remember I am brand friendly to T-Mobile, I like the name, the logo, the look, service, etc.. (im a big "image is everything" kinda guy) so I dont see myself havin any problems stayin on the T-mo ship if I end up doing so. But, my third option I was thinking about is stay on T-Mo till summer (not renewing my contract), then once the htc Evo comes out, terminate T-Mobile and sign up with my friends for a family plan on sprint and get the "Everything Data" package plan, where we all would get unlimited calls to mobiles, unlimited text, picture, multi-media messaging, data, internet.. all that jazz.. divided among the 4 of us, we each pay $42.50. Thats a hell of a deal in my opinion. But I've never used sprint where I live, I have hear a lot of people say they dislike it cuz their service was garbage where they live, and I have also heard no complaints from others living in different areas. I personally know two people who live by me who had sprint in their past, and one said it wasn't too great for him, while the other person said she had no complaints with it at all.

    Well, sorry for rambling on forever, if you took the time to read all that, please do let me know what you think, and also let me know what phone carrier and phone you have now, and or plan to change to in the near by future with the release of the N1 on Vzw, or the htc Evo, or any other phones you are interested in. Thanks! ;)
