    Well so what I've been told by my neighboor, he works in the verizon co office, is that the bionic is at its final test. If it passes it will be 8/4 if not it will be 9/1. Take this how you want, just what he's been told

    Device is done. It's in final testing, if passes 8/4 is likely, otherwise 9/1. What I've heard anyway.

    I really only wanted the Bionic thinking that t would be so much better than the Charge. Since I have rooted and put gummy on it the Charge is a really great phone. If the Bionic doesn't come out soon I will just be keeping my Charge as it is really a great phone to use.

    I hope it comes 8/4, I really want that phone. I hope the specs are beefy enough to keep Moto successful but they have been dropping the ball and are falling behind. I'm buying/preordering it it is 8/4 or 8/12

    I'm considering picking up a Charge next week if there is no new info on the Bionic. That would still allow me to return it if the Bionic shows up Aug 4, and if not I'd probably be happy with the Charge.

    I love the samoled screen on the charge but I can't live without a notification light. I don't understand why Samsung can't put this feature on their phones. I wish moto would use their screens. I have a 55inch LED Sammy TV and it is unbelievable compared to my LG and my old Vizio plasma.

    Notification lights are nice, but there's an okay substitute app called NoLED.

    I've tried several of them on my gf's fascinate. They flash the whole screen and she has had problems with everyone she's used. Not to mention they are much harder on your battery.

    Whats the effect on battery life? For a LTE phone something that stops my phone from entering sleep mode seems less than ideal.

    That used to bother me, but to be honest I don't really notice the absence of it anymore. I keep my phone in my pocket, so I'm always aware if I get a call/text/email.

    Do I wish it had one? Yes

    Is not having one out weigh the positives of the Charge? No

    I just looked it up in the market. It says that noled was made for the galaxy S phones and it lights up a dot on the screen. Maybe it works better than the other one's have tried.

    Thanks for the tip Arizone

    I'm not sure by itself, but it dims the screen as much as it can, or turns the screen off when using the proximity sensor along with a few other features. I have not noticed any serious rises in battery usage since I began using it and I generally always keep wifi and data enabled. Not my favorite solution but it works.

    The one's I have used would still allow the screen to sleep but they would flash the entire screen when you had a notification. You could customize how often for it to flash and how long. The NoLed app says it just flashes a dot on the screen. Not sure how that would work but sounds cool.

    Yeah each notification can have its own little square dot in a user defined color or alternatively it can just display the small app notification icons. The few default notifications like phone, sms, gmail have their own icon that can also be set to different colors. All of the dots/icons will pop around the screen randomly every second or so.
