Running a fascinate and its a great phone, but I found out recently that my area is going 4g soon. Is the main reason I will switch. Those 4g speeds look insane.
Other secondary reasons:
Super AMOLED + screen (right up there with the main reason)

I am switching from my Verizon iPhone. I had a samsung epic with Sprint and switched to verizon for the much acclaimed iPhone only to find out that iOS is the worst operating system on Earth. So limited and practically useless. Horrible notifications. And I cant believe that I have to exit an app in order to change the settings for that app. There is just so much wrong with iOS.
Good thing I purchased the buy back program from best buy with my iPhone. So I will get $400 back for my iPhone and put that toward the purchase of the droid Charge. It should cost around $700. So I would have to pay a $300 difference. Which for me is nothing because it will pay off in me getting rid of this iPhone. I can barely afford itm but I hate the iPhone that much.
I loved my samsung epic. Hope this is as good if not better.

Dammit!! It's so funny because I got my Fascinate around end of November of 2010 and here comes the Droid Charge!! I got my Fascinate off contract so I actually still have an upgrade I can use for the Droid Charge, but I think my wife would freakin' kill me!! LMAOMy Galaxy Note 2 tells me to have a beer! Okay!!!

Sold my ThunderBolt to ride out the launches and while I have ignored Samsung phones due to lack of OS updates, this time around I may go for it. The code is out, it's rooted, custom ROMs to follow things look good.
Now if Verizon could actually not screw this launch up any further and release it I would be happy.

Hah, I'll be switching from an AT&T Fuze (HTC Raphael) once the price comes down a bit...actually tried the Motorola Atrix 4G and the HTC Inspire 4G, but AT&T is really messing with their customers with mandatory data plan change to tiered 4G contracts and (at least for the moment) crippled HSUPA+ uploads. Not to mention that in my area, AT&T 4G speeds stink!

bought a TB eight days ago to give it a spin, but after coming from a rooted Inc. i am just not impressed. I really want to try the Charge....If it releases during my 14 day window. i thought i would never look at a Samsung after all the problems with updates, but with the code out is making this phone look very good to me. Hopefully VZW starts letting these babies out this week or i am stuck with the TB.

Currently using an old Samsung Omnia i910, rooted and running WinMo 6.5 custom ROM. Unfortunately, you cannot hear the ringer anymore and I've kind of given up trying to figure out why now that the LTE devices are about.
Still haven't decided on whether it will be the Thunderbolt or the Charge. Saw the latter today at a Verizon Store and that screen is AMAZING!! Also shot some video and still shots with it, and was pleasantly happy with those as well.
Will probably decide shortly.
