Haha. It depend really. I take it you are going with verizon.
Are you looking for a keyboard? What about 4g?
If your an android nerd I would probably get the merge. Id actually get the merge eithr way because I think it was delayed for 4g. And its made by htc and resembles the g2 so id imagine easy root if your into that.
So I guess it comes down to keyboard or no keyboard. If you don't need one I'd probably wait for the nexus s to hit verizon because the nexus one was the phone I originally wanted but I vould not get money together until I thought it was outdated. Basically I'm saying if you wait to get a phone at launch you'll be more excited. I know I was when I got my epic.

All Android devices are easy to root, usually with just the push of a button. So that's a moot point. Basically get a D2 Global if you want a nice phone now. Wait for the Merge for the possibility of LTE.
If I were to offer more specific advice, I say wait 2 or 3 weeks to see if this Incredible HD hits the shelves anytime soon.Back to Big Red. Sprint was tooooo slow

id wait for 4g. or switch to sprint and get 4g now.
thats what i did - well my contract was up and i wanted the epic. i live in orange county and spend a lot of time in LA so i get 4g for a nice portion of the week.
idk where taft is.
but rooting on the droids are terrible compared to the ease of the htc phones. i dont remember the extra step it takes to flash roms but its one that id rather not doEPIC 4G

I know - that's why I'm drooling after the Merge - keyboard looks near perfect imo.

I'm in the same boat. I'm waiting for the Merge to come out, but I've been hearing that it's being held back for LTE capabilities. If this is true, that means that I would have to pay the extra LTE fee, even if my area doesn't have LTE?
Just like Sprint and the Evo users who don't have 4G in their area?
I'm on the fence on whether to wait or not. One reason that I would want to upgrade now to the D2G is because of the BOGO offer, which one of my other lines is also up for an upgrade. I guess I do have 30 days with the D2G and wait to see if the Merge is released by then. Anyone have any suggestions?

i've been sitting on upgrades for my 2 lines since March of this year. Now I've been ready to buy for the last 2 months and this damn merge isn't out yet! these BOGO offers are quite appealing but i keep tryinig to hold out. my wifes phone is practically dead so i don't know how much longer i can wait. for those in the know, what would make the merge better than the droid 2? I need to some ammo to procrastinate some more.
