    Default What are you waiting for?

    If you're still using your Bionic as your daily driver like I am, west are you waiting for before you upgrade?

    Waiting to renew your contract? Waiting for the next generation of phones?

    Personally I'm waiting to see what Motorola turns out when Google is fully at the helm from design start to finish.

    +1 for me. But I also am waiting for a super phone since I'd have to give up my unlimited data plan.

    Give up unlimited plan? Why? Don't take the subsidized pricing and keep the unlimited plan.

    I might go for a Note 2 after April, when it appears that the price is scheduled to drop. Or pick up a refurbished unit. Frankly, though, although a bigger screen would be nice, the Bionic is fine for the foreseeable future, so unless I'm able to pick up something in the range of the $30 that I paid for my refurbished Bionic it'll continue to be the daily driver.

    The point at which I'll perk up my ears a bit is when VoLTE becomes a reality. Getting rid of CDMA and GSM, consolidating onto a data-centric model, will improve both battery life (by eliminating a radio from the phone) and hopefully also customer flexibility (by making it easier to switch from one carrier to another).

    I think I'm on the same path WebOS. My Bionic is going fine, I think I'm waiting for the next evolution in the tech. Everything out there right now seems just incremental.

    because I have two little kids at home and I cannot afford to spend $500 on a phone that will be obsolete in less than two years.

    I get that, I'm in the same boat. I was more wondering what kind of specs, upgrade everyone is still waiting for.

    I was informed by a few VZW reps that if I make ANY changes to my account, such as but now limited to, upgrading my current device, adding a new device, or even buying a phone off a friend and activating it on my number, that it will take me off my unlimited plan and put me on a share data plan. And since I stream music most of the time because we can't stream at work, looks like I'll be with the Bionic for a while.

    That's mostly true, but do bear in mind that purchasing a phone off contract and activating it on your account won't affect anything.

    That means you can still purchase phones full unsubsidized price or buy on the used market. That's the route I'll take to keep unlimited.

    True, and also Lee, I was able to move my b-i-l from a feature phone to my old OG Droid with his own 2 Gig data plan without disturbing the Grandfathered Unlimited plans for 3 other lines on the same account...but I was *very* specific with the VZW clerk while we made the move.

    I'm waiting for my contract to be up in another year and a half. No telling what plans and phones will be out then. I know if the share plans are still a rip of like they are now, I'll be looking for something unsubsidized to avoid them.

    FYI..
    In the past I have..
    Added a new line and phone to my share plan.
    Purchased a new phone for an existing line (no discount price)
    Changed my shared minutes from 700 to 1400
    None of these things has affected my or my wife's unlimited data plan.
    But I was told discounted phone = end of unlimited.

    I'm waiting for a Moto "nexus" phone. I don't care if it officially has that name or not, but, what I want is a quad core phone, 2 gigs of ram, sdcard slot, giant freaking battery, edge to edge 5" HD screen, unlockable bootloader (deal breaker to not have that...won't do any more locked phones even if it means having to buy a "developer" device), and as little "customization" as possible. IOW, nuke blur. Think this is nuts? The latest rumor off the rumor mill is that Google themselves are involved on the software side for the X phone. neXus phone? Moto is doing the hardware, Google is doing the software. If true, you can bet on very quick updates whenever new Android versions come out. At a minimum I require 4.2 so that I can participate in Test Drive, as well. That's my wish list. I'll be going unsubsidized so buying a developer device for unlockable bootloader is fine.

    Unfortunately I've been told by local sales reps, managers and even our corp sales rep (108 devices) that ANY changes I make on my personal account will put me on a share data plan. So I'm not taking any chances.

    Basically as long as what u do on yo plan require u to extend yo contract then u don't have to get the shared plans. Actually u can still select the single plans if u ask for it.
