    Went to Verizon tonight to talk about my plan, ended up getting about $15 off what we pay monthly. But what ended up happening is I got talked into buying a Thunderbolt for $250, using an upgrade. Sadly to say, I will miss my Droid X. BUT HELLO UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER!!!

    Stephen and Friends, I will still talk. Join me on the "dark" side. :D

    PS: Selling MINT Droid X $250. ;)

    Let us know what you think as a former DX user. I'm looking into my 4g options but I worry how the bionic will be since moto are being such @sses with the X, plus I don't want to downsize. I have heard bad things about the call quality and build quality of htc phones

    I agree somewhat with this. Like I wouldn't go so far as to say that HTC phones are poorly made. However in a direct comparison between my DX and my buddies EVO, the HTC phone doesn't seem up to Motorola's standards of build quality. I would have to say Motorola devices are on par with Apple as far as build quality (not design mind you, we aren't talking 'antenna-gate' here) goes.

    However I give HTC the nod in the style department. I've found most HTC devices to look sexier than just about any Moto phone. Where as Motorola devices usually just look solid and grow on you, but not many people look at my DX with stars in their eyes like some people's phones get. Not that I'd evet buy a phone for that reason. Just sayin.

    But I'm with you pal! I have an upgrade and I'm looking to jump onto a unlocked device myself. Hope the Bolt knocks your socks off!

    I fell in love with the DX's style when I first saw it, it's not all girly like the IPhone. Thats why I'm hoping the DX2 is 4g and maybe similar specs as the TB or Bionic. The Bionics sister (Atrix) has that bad ass lapdock but it's expensive for a keyboard and display, plus at&t charge a tethering fee to use the accessory. If the lapdock works with the Bionic and Verizon doesn't charge a fee to use an accessory then the Bionic may be at the top of my list.

    Keep in touch. You're always welcome in here and feel free to talk about the TB. I'd like to know what you think of it. It seemed fine to me. My upgrade is in July. I just don't know that I'll be ready to give up my dx by then, though.

    Yeah, me either. Wanted the Thunderbolt but this DX is just an awesome piece with all the roms, themes, and other goodies available for it.

    You stated "BUT HELLO UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER!!!".............is that true of the TB?

    I'll be doing a review sometime today of the phone. Comparisons 100% to the Droid X. Anything specific that you guys would like me to touch upon?

    Just your personal experience with it. Call quality, feel, etc. I already handled it at the store, extensively, so I know the phone. :)

    Not to ruin your day or anything, but did you read the article saying that the TB will NOT be getting the new sense HD? Sorry. :p

    Ah yes, oh how I love me a nice, masculine phone in my hand. Which is why for my next device I'm going with the "ManPhone 8000"...

    Ha, you'll never find one of these babies sandwiched between a maxi pad and a make up kit in some chicks purse!

    No, No you won't.

    The reason that I dislike sense so much is the fact that I can't launch any icons from the dock except the menu and my phone.

    And Review will be posted sometime tomorrow! I had to root this beast tonight - Way fun. I love adb!

    I've seen rumors that it is 4g and the its not 4g so I'm not sure, plus two Verizon salesmen told me they are pretty sure its gonna be 4g but not positive so they may just have seen same rumors as me. They did say they learn about most things through the media, like the tiered data plans and a couple release dates.

    I'm just wondering.. did you buy the Droid X on a 1 year contract? How are owners of the DX able to upgrade to a Thunderbolt??? I'm very jealous.
