    Hi everyone

    Im thinking of getting a droid phone after using the same feature phone for 4 years. I currently have Verizon and I have been off contract for 2 years.

    Im trying to get one at the lowest monthly cost possible.
    Verizon has offered me a free month service for reupping to go with my 50 off a new phone. Or I can choose to add unlimited text ($20) and get 10 off my data plan a month.
    What Im looking at
    39.99 voice 450 min
    5.00 250 texts
    30.00 2gig data plan
    74.99 total
    then -7.60 for my wife's employer discount.

    So Im looking at 67.39+tax monthly then 62.39+ tax once I drop texting.


    after a month I was planning on dropping the texting in favor of some kind of app that does it for me.

    Does anyone know of any cheaper way to go on Verizon?

    Also Im torn looking at 3 different phones

    Droid Incredible II by HTC
    Droid XII, and the Droid 3

    I cant seem to find a solid answer on what one to get. I played with them in the store and I liked the XIIs screen the best for typing and video quality The Incredible for looks and price and the droid 3 for having a keyboard (fat fingers) and an ok looking screen. So far Im leaning toward the droid 3.

    But I havent heard the call quality on any of them yet:(

    I know I cant get a future proof phone but I would like one that will have acceptable performance up to the contract renewal. ( my feature phone has lasted 4 years its a beast yo).


    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong place. I hope someone can help me try to put it altogether. Its not as easy as I thought and I took 3 hours to pick out my last phone in the store.
