I've posted this a couple of times on this board but Ill say it again. I was in a similar situation a couple of weeks ago when my d1 broke. I too am waiting for the new better phones that are coming out soon. What you should do is check craigslist and get yourself a nice phone like a d2 (like i did) or X or something cheap. That will hold you off until the new phones come out. Then when they do, sell the d2 or X, and use that money to get your new phone. That way you always have a nice phone, and the waiting won't be such a chore. And you don't waste your verizon upgrade this way.
Thunderbolt looks promising. Also my friend has the HTC incredible and its pretty nice and has roms. My next is an incredible or thunderbolt based on if 4g phones will require a more expensive plan. Samsung is having update problems now I believe.

Wait for the Bionic or get an X. And harass Moto about their bootloader locking ways, see sig.
VOTE: Which feature does Android need most?
[Credit: pc747] Do you hate the blockbuster, kindle, need for speed, and other preloaded apps you can not delete. Tired of having to sbf your phone just to get an update because you delete the bloatware. Well time for you to stand up and say NO!!!!

Like I said, spend your money on a good phone (the HTC Thunderbolt) and reward a company who doesn't lay booby-traps for unwary users who try and fail to root their phone.
Actually, I'm not a developer - but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once.
People people, moto said last week they are working to develop a more open developer based phone so stop the unfounded hate. The comment about the locked bootloader was retracted and does not state motorolas current view, sheesh
