    Scroll up. Certainly does not mean anything is going on but that was not my experience when I ran the test and it didn't find my device

    Congratulations sir for bringing back a glimmer of hope. I'm just getting tired of my enV Touch, although it has incredible DPI for the screen. 480x685 at 1.5" by 2.5".

    I have upgrades burning through the floors of my home and are threatening to breach the basement floor.

    Every phone on my family's plan is due for an upgrade, and I care what I get for the next 2 years. Both parents have Blackberries, and my brother has a flip phone. The other thing is that I'm a developer, so I need to have as much freedom as possible. So I'm hoping either this or the Droid Bionic have the unlockable bootloaders.

    shouldnt really matter about 2 years. after a year or whenever a new phone comes out that you want, want it retail and sell your phone. youll end up paying a little more then what the upgrade pricing would have been if for new smartphones. like how you would with 1 year upgrades anyway

    You think having the OG Droid for 2 years is bad?

    Imagine getting this enV Touch and having the Droid come out less than 2 weeks later. The pain.

    I'm not paying for it, my parents do. Verizon also phased out the early upgrades for new contracts, so that's not an option after this upgrade.

    Beleive it or not I still love my Droid. I'm running 2.3.4 on it and it's in mint condition. If I want a change I flash another ROM on it and I'm good to go. Now if I was in your postition with an enV Touch I would REALLY feel your pain

    I now see why you are patient and stalk your handsets now. LOL. Patience in this game is a neccesity. If you have no patience you lose and have regrets.

    Exactly and you could end up with a tbolt with bad battery life and software issues. Heck the inc 2 is getting love for being the better device...infact htc supports the inc2 more than they do the tbolt. Yes I am waiting for the sgs2.... I hope its the device that lives up to the hype because my tbolt didnt.

    Trust me, I have nothing bad to say about the OG. Easy to root, ROM, etc. enV Touch? Not Android = Useless. Believe it or not, but this phone was marketed as the app phone on Verizon. Yes it has apps, but not in a million years would I pay 3 dollars a month for an app.

    I've been able to upgrade since early April, but at that time the LTE phones weren't exactly new anymore. And I waited, and waited, and waited. And then that new ICS Moto phone was rumored, so now will I wait for that? You can't win!

    No. Even if you did, you would buy it once, not buy it over and over and over and over again.

    There aren't any other GPS apps on feature phones. Remember that I have an enV Touch, not a nice Android phones. We have BREW. Old tech that they still have to use for those without Android.

    Just like the wait of the tbolt.........man im hoping I did not just curse this thing..


    "verizon, if you mess this one up it will be two super hyped devices under your flagship that you tanked.... look let samsung do all the work, just put your name on it and package it for us to buy. No need to make any changes to make the device unique....leave it alone, if you really feel the need to put your stamp on it then make the battery cover red or something".



    I am expecting the function to not be as thin as the other sgs2 phones because of the lte radio. I am hoping that samsung follow up the charge with another good lte device.

    Like I said. Buy it RETAIL. Sell your old phone. That's has ZERO to do with your contract or any upgrades.
    And yea I know they got rid of one year upgrades I've done CS for a while, say the upgrade is 250. One year would have probably been at around 320. S2 is 650 retail right. Sell your current phone and pay the difference. Which should be around 1 year pricing If it was still around + no new contract.
    Then the next year you'll be up for an upgrade. Sell that phone and use the upgrade. Profit(i think?)

    Also, I can't switch carriers (parents). So I can't buy an S2 retail, or any other GSM phone. I am stuck on Verizon. That's why I'm in the Function forums and not the regular forums! And who in their right mind would buy an enV Touch? Besides, we keep them so that if a phone breaks, we have something we can activate for a replacement. My brother is on his 3rd replacement (don't ask about how he loses and breaks things).

    My parents won't buy retail. It just doesn't please them to see that price for a phone; They're used to subsidized contract phones.

    Now that we've sufficiently hijacked the thread, how about that Function?

    I walked into a Verizon reseller in Michigan yesterday and asked if they had the Droid 3 in stock so I could show it to my mom. They told me that it wasn't out yet. I said it came to stores on the 14th, they said no, that was online. To which I said that was the 7th online. They then said that the release date would be the 28th, and I walked out.



    On a side note, they had a whole room of a strip mall, and only one tiny table in the center with 15 feet of space left and right, then one desk 25 feet back from that. And the table was 25 feet from the door.

    And that table had 4 phones, but 6 more empty holders for phones.

    In short, I'm not going back.
