    Ya I would like to know how Phil feels about the battery after the last days. What device would it compare to?

    can you shut off the rear notification LED? the main reason I turn my phone upside down is precisely b/c I don't want to be distracted by the LEDs. Otherwise, why would I risk scratching the screen by putting it face down?

    Does the DNA have "Blocking Mode" settings like Samsung phones?

    I've heard and read the answer is -- regrettably -- no.

    I should have been more clear. You can turn it off, but only by disabling all notification lights. Kinda sucks that you can opt to have the front light on and disable the rear green light. I look at that back notification light with the same disdain as those blinking blue lights on Bluetooth headsets.

    Oh, haha, you were responding to a previous post.
    I was confused, because you didn't quote it, so I assumed you were responding to the post directly before yours.

    I hear people talking about storage being a problem, but doesn't Google Drive make up for that? You can store anything in google's cloud. Pics/ Videos always end up taking the most space for me and It's so easy to just put them in google's cloud. You even have an option for certain items to be available offline or stored on the phone.

    Does this phone also offer full USB host support like the one x+ ??? The ability to hook up a mass storage device would go a long ways towards solving this 11 gig fiasco :-(
    This has probably already been answered, but yes it does. Just plugged one in and it works.

    See, you (and others) keep saying that as if it'd have no impact on the design of the phone.
    Even if it didn't have a bigger battery, I'd prefer a thicker phone...it's too thin.

    Does it have USB Host support? Like can I plug a OTG cable in and connect a USB drive or keyboard?
    USB Host support, yes. USB drive, yes. Keyboard, yes. Just tried it.

    Readin' THAT loud and clear .. coupled with the new data plan tiers. Pardon while I go back and thumb through the "keeping unlimited data" thread ....
    I was able to keep my grandfathered unlimited data plan. I was concerned about that as well. So when I walked into the Verizon store to pre-order the phone and finally got my turn to talk to someone, I said...

    ME: "I'd like to pre-order the HTC DNA, but first I would like to know about keeping my unlimited data plan. I heard that if I do the upgrade on a different line (like my moms line/number) and then transfer the new phone (upgrade) to my line/number, I get the keep the grandfathered unlimited data plan"
    Verizon Associate/Person/Rep: "I can't tell you that, but if you figured that out on your own, then yes."

    Those were her exact words! I have now done just that and can confirm I still have my unlimited data plan!

    Just words of warning to anyone who is taking upgrade from a DIFFERENT family/friend members acct that is not on same acct as yourself. You VOID your 1 year warranty so please protect your device with other options.

    Yea, My Rep told me that by Moving my DNA from its Orginal upgrade line to my line does Void the Warranty....BUT AS long as you have Insurance on the Line you ARE MOVING the phone 2 you ARE covered warranty wise.

    I have a question in reference to adding new contacts. How do I get it to default to 'Google" instead of "phone"? Can't to seem find a setting anywhere. Thanks.

    Sure, but then you're always using data to access that stuff, and you have to have a connection.. so if you happen to be in a place without signal or wifi, what do you do?

    Did you guys have to activate the DNA on the intermediate line first or did you just go straight to activating it on your line when you got it? I've been looking everywhere for the answer to this question but can't get a definitive answer!
