    I could not get out of the GNex fast enough. Terrible battery (even with extended battery), terrible signal, terrible time texting grp texts. Loving the Moto X!

    I loved my gnex the first year + but since 4.2 it went down hill fast. Bay life was horrible even with extended battery. Wild freeze up often, bruising Web was slow etc. Even after resets. I went with Moto X with work around to keep my unlimited and loving it.

    Still loving my GNex though I sometimes have to use an external battery. My next phone will be the Moto X when my contract is up.

    I'm in the band that jumped from the Gnex to the Moto X thanks to the CyberMond...Wednesday promotion. My Gnex rebooted on my at least once a day since getting 4.2 and I was rather jaded about the way Verizon and Google pretty much abandoned the Gnex - it was never really a Nexus device as promised. That's also why I went for the X rather than one of the Droids - I think Motorola will support the X better after the Verizon exclusive droids have been forgotten.

    I don't use but a few gigs of data a month myself, but converting our three unlimited lines to a family share would raise my bill by at least $60/month - so, even paying the "full" $349 price, that $60/month I save by staying off of family share will pay for the difference over a subsidized phone in a few months. It's a no brainer for me.

    And, there's something just right about the X - the form factor fits so comfortably in the hand, the screen is beautiful, and Motorolas enhancements to Android just work and are actually useful. With Samsung, their stuff feels like a bunch of gee-whiz stuff that I'd use once to show off. The Moto X feels like it has really done something to move smart phones forward.

    Check out the thread on the verizon forum about keeping unlimited data when you have a family plan.

    I've seen it before - but all three of my lines are unlimited data smart phones and we're on a special data share plan that they only offered for a month or so - $30 data for the first line, $10 data for each of the other two. My bill each month is $160 with all taxes - there is no incentive for me to ever go on subsidy/contract again unless they just completely kick me off. For me, it's not about the unlimited data, its about the ridiculous cost of the Share Everything plans.

    OK but I don't think you understand the process in that thread if you think it wouldn't work for your situation. You get a subsidized smartphone when you add a new 2GB data line to your plan and then transfer upgrades to the added line 1 by 1 to preserve your UDPs on the other lines. Since you get 4 subsidized phones in total, you sell the fourth to recoup the cost of the added line. And then put a basic phone on the added line to drop the data plan.

    My plan is a special limited time offer plan, too. I bought the basic phone off of ebay for under $20. The added line costs me $13/mo with taxes/surcharges/fees. Every 24 months I buy an iPhone with the added line's upgrade and net enough after selling it to pay for the added line for another 24 months. The added line is available for me to transfer the UDP's upgrades to use.
