    Same here. Even worse for me seeing how I have been through like 7 refurbs since I bought the droid x on launch day. Now I have a fascinate that wont sync anything and the gps does not work.

    I almost want to go buy an iphone just to return it on the 13th day.

    I actually thought about doing the same thing and getting the iphone just to have a new phone for a a couple weeks and returning it but I don't wanna have to pay the $35 restocking fee. I just need to get rid of this Storm 1 which unfortunately I still have.

    I know that nobody seems to really know for sure what the delay of this is but if it really is because of the iPhone that makes it even worse and for nothing considering all of the reports coming out today of there being next to no lines in any of the stores. A majority of the people who wanted the phone already preordered it or are waiting for their contract to end. Please just announce this phone so I can get rid of this POS!!

    With the epic fail that is the i*hone4 launch for verizon, maybe we'll get it sooner rather than later.

    Lol, my girlfriend is an iPhone fangirl... so I am actually thinking about buying it and returning it to piss her off. That would be worth the $35 for me hahah.

    I preordered mine today. The dude at BB said that the HTC rep told him that it would be out Monday the 14th. I also bought the holster and hard case cover already.

    Come on Thunderbolt!

    crapple had nothing to do with it... it was an unfinish product as of earlier this week.... according to black_man_X they just recently fixed the LTE handoff situation so...

    I noticed the Xoom doesn't have a price off contract. I would hate to ask.

    Cool... 500th Post.

    why do you guys say "i*hone" instead of iPhone? :thinking:
  16. howarmat

    howarmat Android Expert

    there is no off contract price, there is no cnotract either, its month to month
  17. Tech Addiction

    Seems stupid they lock you into a month when it's off contract then.

    Personally, I picked it up from seeing others do it. *shrug*

    Some folks use "lol" excessively. "i*hone" shall be my quirk...

    you basically just have to activate the device and pay the first month. It has a radio, just like any phone and VZW wont let you out the door without that an activation either

    Wowwwwwwww! Where'd ya hear that? $629 was being thrown around last week. If that's the case, I'm passing! That's crazy, especially when a pure Google phone like the Nexus S is considerably less.

    it will be 749 at best buy who knows about vzw. they havent announced a price yet. keep in mind you are getting a 32 gb memory card. an easy $100 value plus the lte chips are super expensive.

    $250 for a 2 year plan isn't too too bad
  25. howarmat

    Except that is 10 months you can bet there will be a new round of fantastic looking android phones :)

    if you sign a 2 year you are locked in for 20 months. with a 1 year its 350 for the phone but you upgrade in 10 months. it used to be for like 270 you could get it on a 1 year, so its 80 more now for that option
