    Verizon will simply push the Droid DNA, they always push the "droid" branded phones. The typical user has no real idea what they should buy or why and sadly the reps steer them to what the spiff is on.

    Do Verizon reps get commission?

    We don't "Push" the droid line and we certainly don't make commission on them. We make commission on the contracts, so I could sell you the stellar and still make the same amount. Verizon does not tell or or even hint for us to sell droid over ANYTHING. So stop saying that, because its a load of crap. Most of the employees actually have an S3 and are either happy or want to upgrade to the N2.

    We don't get spiffs at all on phones, your info is incorrect, so stop making crap up. We may get a spiff off an accessory, but not off phones. Most of us sell what we think is a good phone, because we have a return rate and that hurts us BIG TIME.

    Don't you just love it when people talk out of their a$$? It's nice to see someone with real life experience set the record straight.

    I have seen many times where reps steer clearly clueless customers to a phone that is out of date, old specs and not worth getting all the while talking up how great it is. So clearly the reps "in the know" don't know squat. As for spiffs and commissions, that does happen, just may not happen at the corp stores so that was an error. However Microsoft was clearly paying a bounty to get Windows Phone pushed by store reps so that is a known fact.

    You act like Droids are bad phones. Keep in mind, not everyone is like us. Not everyone needs the latest and greatest and not everyone hates Droids. Want to know why RAZR's are popular? Because the build quality, the battery and the name. Customers appreciate that and recommending them shouldn't be a bad thing. Everyone has their own preference. Personally, i like the galaxy line the best, but motorola has done things others haven't... provide superior battery life and build quality, i wish others would take note aka DNA/Nexus lol

    I agree the droids and iPhones are great for some people. But when I am looking for a specific phone I don't want someone pushing me to another one.

    I've been contemplating getting either the iPhone 5 or Note II as my next device. What are some reasons why they dislike the iPhone?

    Joe, a question,

    I live on Long Island and we're moving to West Boynton Beach within the year. Currently we have a villa in Mid Delray. There is no ATT LTE near us on LI but it's about 7 or 8 miles away. VZW LTE is great on LI.

    In West Boynton, West Lake Grove and West Lantana, there is no VZW LTE west of the Florida Tpke or even west of Jog and there is LTE below and on top and even around going further west. You can see the hole on the coverage map at zip code 33473. On ATT's coverage map there is solid dark blue LTE coverage for all of south east FL from Jupiter to Miami and far west passed 441 and Coral Springs. But on the legend it says LTE can be viewed for 120 miles. That makes no sense.

    So, VZW is better on LI and ATT is better in FL, I think. How can one know if and when VZW is going to fill that hole with LTE coverage around West Boynton, West Lake Grove and West Lantana. I want to get the Note 2 and initially it was a no brainer but now that we are moving to FL, north of where our villa is in Delray, coverage makes a difference and nobody seems to know where or when things will change. If the population isn't large enough it might not be a priority for VZW even though the Western Parts of these cities are adjacent to areas where the coverage is great. If VZW's 3G was as good as ATT HSPA maybe it wouldn't be an issue but VZW on the internet on 3g can be awful. Thanks

    Lack of expandable storage and battery is built in. The OS is too simple and lacks features that other phones have ( NFC, customizations, larger screens, more free apps and variety of phones. Also, apple forces you to use iTunes and overall are very fragile... these are some reasons...

    As someone who had the iPhone 5 and sold it within a month (mad a very good profit) and has been willing to use a crappy old flip phone while I wait for the GN2 to arrive, I can say for me its worth getting what Samsung has to offer in the GN2. I see so many benefits of the note pad and the S-Pen while on a call and how helpful it will be. So much so that I sold my iPad 3 (so long iOS and not going back) and got the GN 10.1 with S-Pen as well. Need to root it though and remove some of the bloatware I just don't need.

    Verizon branding on the button, I wish it wasn't there but I'm not bothered enough by it to pay money for stickers or spend effort rubbing it off and risk damaging the button. It's there and that's life. But the GN2 I just put on Pre-Order (wanted NBD shipping but NO OPTION) so Thursday it is at work

    The Verizon logo on the home button is pretty difficult to notice, at least on the white version. I just spent about 20 minutes playing with one at Best Buy (with people giving me the stink eye for spending so much time on it ) and I didn't even notice the logo until I specifically looked right at it.

    How do you feel about Android phones, like the DNA, that have these same problems yet are getting a lot of hype right now?

    We have had people come in asking about it, but when we do mention those lack of options, most never realize them until we bring them up.

    The thing is, our store is like a bunch of phone nerds, we all know our stuff and really do a good job going into detail and trying to help customers pick out the best phone far them. I can't say that for other stores, but unfortunately you have idiots in every company.

    I had a att employee tell me their HSPA+ is faster than LTE..... i LOLed.

    I haven't seen any accessories yet, the BB's near me have the flip cover cases for the GS3 so I would assume they have something but I didn't see much for them and who knows if its a regional/market thing or not. But the wireless manager that I always talk to gets a kick out of how many iphone accessories there are and how people flood in for that stuff.
