    Just shattered my screen on my motion and looking at metros options I might not be able to get another. So if I can't I guess it's been fun and I hop the best for all of you... :(

    If I can get the Nexus 4 in the next few weeks, I'd be more than glad to send you mine, and allow you to keep helping the community in the way that you have :]

    Althought I would love to wait for the Nexus 5, seeing the rumored specs, the nexus 4 is just still really amazing and if it means helping you continue in the community I would be glad to give you my motion

    I really appreciate the support and offer I just can't wait for a phone.. Having a wife and kid I really need a phone I can see off of at all possible times.. Lol.. I really do appreciate it..

    Yeah I'm pretty heart broken.. I'd prefer to stay with the Motion til I absolutely had to move on, but it's looking like that might be now. What I'd get next all depends on the options they have now and price, if that phone already has a root exploit available (I couldn't do a non rooted phone EVER again), and if I could get PG to help me make cm for it.. Lol. Whatever I decide I will definitely stay around AF. I've really enjoyed my time here and learned quite a bit so I'll definitely be an AF member as long as possible...

    Some stores still have the motion. o: Only have a few left in stock though due to the new phones they're gonna put up.

    Yeah that's what I'm noticing.. Walmart doesn't even carry it anymore.. Im looking at the f3 MAYBE I think it's still cdma so that means I'd have to part with it by 2015 anyway.. Can't tell if the same method for rooting the Virgin version is the same for the metro version. There's not really any development on it yet either so i just don't know there. I might end up just searching hard for a motion if at a fair price. I really can't afford to buy a new one but I have to have a phone so the hunt has already begun..

    I believe that the Metro F3 is the same as T-Mobile's, so it's a GSM phone.
