    Hi all,

    Well I love my Rush, but the new Moto G is a very nice and affordable upgrade. I'm going to be switching over to this phone, but may wait till Republic Wireless releases it as you can't beat their plans as they take advantage of wifi voip.

    Check out the Moto G!

    The phone is also coming soon to Republic Wireless (uses wifi/Sprint network).

    Edit: The only thing I don't like about the phone is that there is no slot for a SD card. Internal memory is 8GB.

    Non-removable battery too. If the phone gets wet, find a trash can that accepts hazardous substances. (Don't throw LiIon batteries out in normal trash.) If you can't remove the battery within a couple of (like 2) seconds after the phone gets wet, you don't have much chance of saving it.

    And when the battery goes (and they do, no matter how well you treat them), it's not a $16 Amazon order, it's more like a $100 repair shop visit.

    Yep that is another con.. but there are way more pros than cons imo.

    Already able to root which is cool!

    I think I'm going to stay with Boost for now because Republic Wireless service just came out of beta and they are still having some issues.. but it is looking promising! I think next year I'll use them.
