    I will say that I am slightly bummed about the release date being pushed back. I need to get on a data package phone in order to keep my unlimited data after switching from my iPhone to a feature phone for the duration of the wait.

    My plan is this....switch with my girlfriend so I have her iPhone and she has my phone, and then switch back right after so I get another 14 day period of grace, which should cover me if I time it right until the release of the Nexus.

    Or, should I use my upgrade and get the Razr/Bionic and then when the Nexus comes out I will be within my 30 days and can exchange it for the Nexus? Ah! I don't know what to do!

    Get a good Logitech Harmony universal remote and get the profiles setup well and all the devices it controls tuned to it well and anyone can use it after a couple tries.

    You are correct, 14 days. My mistake!

    If I get a phone on the 3rd so I can keep my data package, will I still be able to get the Nexus for it's 2 year subsidized price?

    Have you tried Swappa? Get a cheap Android phone and you have it as a standby/spare if necessary. I've bought 2 OG Droids from there and love the service.

    Are you saying VZW gives you 14 days as sort of a grace period to get back on a smartphone after you switch off of one to retain unlimited data? I don't know the answer, I always assumed if you switched off you were done. I'd be very careful assuming that you can switch back and forth and keep getting new grace periods though. That seems like you're playing with fire.

    You should also remember that the return period is 14 days, not 30.

    Thought about Swappa, but I really don't want to have to spend more money than absolutely necessary.

    Yeah I asked about it when I was on the phone with Verizon Customer Service. The period is usually 14 days that you can keep your unlimited data.

    I just got on and saw some of the posts regarding Steven's integrity and just thanked everyone that defended him.

    Steven58 = One of the best mods on any message board I've been on, without question.
