    I've been patiently waiting for the Galaxy Nexus and can't lie, I had to cross my legs and put a pillow over my lap when I laid eyes on it. My plan was to take my wifes upgrade but all of a sudden her Dinc is giving her trouble and shes talking about upgrading. So sad. What do you think a Bionic will go for on ebay with the introduction of the Nexus and Razr? Go to find something reasonable to get her.

    I think the more pressing matter is how a phone, as awesome as it is (and it is), is causing you special feelings downstairs. Once that gets resolved, you have a few options. If you've been with Verizon longer than six months, don't pay late or owe currently, and have a few lines of service, Verizon is willing to charge equipment to your account. So you can always pay the upgrade price when you get it and pay the other half (after you sell your Bionic) a month later.

    But seriously...no more wood over the Nexus.

    Give her the Bionic, and use the up-grade for the G-Nex.

    Just call verizon and get her a replacement. VZ may not have anymore so they may just give her a new phone. DO NOT LET HER UPGRADE!

    My sister was having issues with her Dinc and they gave her a Dinc 2 so it might be worth a shot.

    How? You have to pay the internet/data fee of $30/mo.

    Lol! What I meant was, maybe I'll be able to buy a Bionic or something close for cheap. I have a Fascinate and she doesn't want it.

    Right now he has a Fascinate and is looking to get a Bionic.

    On ebay they are going from right under $300 to right under $500 on current bids without a contract, good chance you may find some even cheaper once more people start selling them to get a GN.

    1. Get a new line with the Nexus.
    2. Transfer the Nexus to your line.
    3. Put a feature phone on new line and cancel the data plan.*
    4. PROFIT!!!

    *I know step 3 is supposed to be blank, but I'm trying to be helpful.

    Does an enV3 count as a feature phone or does it require the 150MB plan?

    Well I would say by making your wife happy, you will get less nagging which will make your upper region ( your brain ) happier.

    people that add another line for $9.99 are not right, if you do the math you pay more for the device.

    $9.99 + $29.99 * 24 = $960 +about 15% in taxs about $1100 over 2 yrs...

    Remind me to never move to your state. 15% tax! I thought it was bad here at 10%.

    How does #3 work? I thought you had to keep the data plan for the duration of your contract.
    I basically did this a while back (July '09). I had a BB Storm, and wanted the Tour when it came out (6 months later). On release day, I went to Best Buy and added a line and bought the Tour at the new customer/upgrade price. I had Best Buy activate it though on my existing line (not the new line). After I got home, I called Verizon and had them activate a feature phone on the new line (I have kept the line and use it for my daughter). So, I didn't have to add a data plan to the new line even though I was getting a smartphone that required a data plan. I did though have an existing line that had a data plan.

    Not if you add a new line and activate a feature phone on it without a data plan. That's what I did a while back (see my earlier post).

    I'm hoping by Dinc dies. Then I can upgrade to the GN and the wife can't complain too much (saving for house stuff).

    Just for your reference and to answer your initial question - I checked terapeak to gauge your potential sale on eBay. The avg selling price over the last 7 days was $349 + $12 shipping. I think if yours is in excellent condition and you have the box, etc you can safely bank on selling it for $400. Minus $37 in final value fees and $12 in paypal fees you will net $350.
