    Had mine about 1.5 years and see no compelling reason to switch right now. Does everything I need it to as long as I reboot it regularly. I bought the extended battery as soon as I got the phone and usually lasts a day with light usage. My wife has the S3 which I really like, but don't want to pay the premium right now.

    Still have mine, since Nov. 2011. Stock. Bought another, OEM battery on eBay as a spare. Like some others, I don't see anything currently available that would cause me to switch, other than Rezound's doubtful global capability.

    We too still have ours. Got it January 5th, 2012. It was one of the 'Hot' phones at the time. The ReZound, the Galaxy and the Razor were the top three. Unfortunately, for some reason our ReZound got orphaned. -But- we like it and are sticking with it. Now that some of the developers have released JB version ROMs it is getting even more interesting. We just installed our first Custom ROM yesterday. CM10

    We have even created a couple of WebPages covering our exploits and what we found on the Web. Trying to get it all in one place. IF you would like to view them they are at: HTC Rezound - Smartphone -and- CM10 Install.
    The first one is a conglamoration and the second is hopefully in better shape. They are mostly for ourselves -but- if anyone can benefit from them ... great.
    No. We are NOT advertising anything. Just info. Thanks and have a good day.

    Update.. I unknowingly dropped my phone leaving work in the parking lot, where it stayed overnight. When I found it, I also found that it had been run over haha. Still working.. (just barely) so I'll be getting the galaxy since that's the top phone on Verizon now

    Umm... the Rezound has had Global capability for a few months now, since the OTA 4.5.605.14 ROM was released.

    In April, the very next day after the new OTA, I tried it with the Global SIM Ieft from my European trip a year ago. It gave me a new phone number, connected to the AT&T network, and I could make and receive calls, and receive texts, but not send.

    This is because you did not have the proper GSM APN settings configured in the phone for the carrier that provided that SIM, it should have worked fine.

    We're having this conversation on two parallel threads. I bought that global SIM from a reseller here, in the States. It's plain vanilla white, so who knows who made it. When I tried it here and it didn't work for outgoing texts, do you think I should've contacted AT&T because that's what I saw on the screen?

    From what I have seen, Global prepaid SIMs usually come with APN settings for data or do not include data/text services at all. You could try just using AT&T APN settings (Google can get this for you quickly, and most other carriers as well, they are not secret) if there is no support for the SIM from the seller, but they may not have a data/text roaming agreement with AT&T either. It is generally best to just grab a prepaid SIM at a local cellular store or in the airport of your destination, they are usually significantly cheaper and the sales/support people are familiar with most phones and how to config them quickly.

    The instructions for the Global SIM I got mention only calls and texts. There's nothing about data. The idea is to go to a country (incl. the US), send a text to some four digit number, have a returned text with the new phone number, and voila. That is the scenario which I tried with my Rezound. P.S. Do you remember a discussion on XDA that mentioned outgoing texts not working? P.P.S. acejavelin, should we take the rest to the "Global?" thread, to have it all in one place?

    Yes, lets move it... BTW, the discussion on XDA was prior to the official global release, not sure how relevant it is anymore. I will be honest though, I have not tried this on the Rezound personally, I am only going by what I read/hear/see and interpret it with my 20+ years of experience in the telecom industry.

    Yes, unfortunately I still have a Rezound. It's actually my 3rd rezound (could have gone for a 4th at least). I've had a lot of problems with this phone (mainly battery life, constant reboot cycle, data interruptions, and message send/receive issues). As of yesterday, I qualify for an upgrade finally and am truly debating going with the S4. I'd just prefer not to have to pay $200 for another phone at this time. Any idea how soon they may have a sale for the phone to be $150 or less?

    Watch Sam's Club or LetsTalk.com, they are ~$179 right now, but Amazon Wireless has them listed at $119-$149 ($119 new contract, $149 renewal), so it is under $150 right now.

    I still have my rezound although i tried to sell it. It seems no one wants it. I'm rocking my S4 that I got from AC in the Worlds First galaxy S4 Contest. I miss the beats but I have a fater phone. Just wish that Scott would have stuck around longer with his roms.

    Actually, I just stopped in Sam's Club last night and peeked at the phones in the kiosk, the Galaxy S4 16GB Blue was $125 with contract renewal in the store, and the HTC DNA was $25.

    I have had a rezound since Dec 2011 and it's great.. currently rooted, and running the newest custom ROM, Liquid Smooth, it's great.. I have tried just about every ROM that has come out, and after a lag in development, there have been a number of recent devs who have begun porting great ROMs to the Rez.. I highly reccomend Liquid Smooth and Beanstalk or if you prefer HTC sense still, the ViperRez rom has amaing tweaks and works great..
    I loose my grandfathered unlimited data in Nov (so I hear) so I may flash to MetroPCS
