    So HTC has dot view, motion gestures, duo camera for the GPE, and I believe they are going to release Zoe and blinkfeed as well to the play store

    I have the 10gb mobile share on AT&T that is shared among several phones on my plan. I generally use under 2gb (more like 1gb mostly) per month but I spend a lot of time with wifi available.

    Just wondering, before it seemed you were leaning towards the regular M8 but you say you're ordering the GPE version. Anything in particular that caused you to pick that one? Just curious...

    The GPE is not subsidized and you pay full price for it unlocked for gsm carriers. You can get the regular M8 directly from HTC unlocked for gsm carriers as well. So if buying off contract is the way you're going, you still can choose either one just in case you weren't aware of that.

    Their both unlocked. Their both the same price so might as well get the GPE.

    Yes the one you can buy though Google (the Google play edition GPE) is unlocked and can be used on compatible Gsm carriers. That one has the stock Android operating system (not the Htc Sense overlay and optimizations). Comes in Gunmetal Gray in stock at the moment

    You can also buy directly through Htc and get an unlocked Htc One M8. That one can also be used on compatible Gsm carriers. It has the Htc Sense overlay and enhancements optimized for the M8 with the added software from Htc but no carrier added bloatware software. Available in all three colors in stock with free overnight shipping and no tax unless you're in one of the three states where they have to collect tax.

    Both are currently the same price 699

    I think I'm gonna go to best buy trade my 5s in for $300 then pay the difference. That'll be cheaper then the other way. Sounds like a plan to me. Gonna get it done tomorrow.

    One last thing to do, before you hand over that iPhone and disconnect service from it be sure to sign out of iMessage!!! If you don't you're gonna have real problems with texting. On the iPhone go into settings, tap on iMessage, tap on the send & receive, tap on your Apple ID and then select sign out.

    What do u mean by disconnect network??? I'm gonna sign out of iMessage. Do a factory reset. And take the sim out. I'm selling it tomorrow for $400.

    All I mean is you have to turn off iMessage before the sim is pulled (while the phone can still connect and send the signal to apple to sign out of iMessage). Sounds like you've got it covered. Some people forget to sign out of iMessage and end up with texting issues because of it when they switch to non-Apple phones.

    Aside from the frequency and speed of firmware updates, there are no advantages that I am aware of to the GPe. IMO it would be much wiser to buy a developer version unlocked (with Sense) and thus have the ability to flash to GPe if you choose (with unlocking the bootloader and flashing such a ROM, etc) or to utilize the device to it's full potential as HTC intends. Honestly, the best of both worlds might just be the Sense version with the Google Now Launcher and the user's choice of which e-mail, calendar, etc. they prefer to utilize.
