Hi, my contract is about to be up in early May and I'm starting to research replacements for my DROID X. I have rooted it but the only thing I've used it for is wireless tethering in rare circumstances where I didn't have internet and needed to look stuff up on my laptop. The main things I use the phone for is as a phone, Google Nav (best thing about Android IMO), a couple email accounts, and apps like Yelp, Facebook, Google Docs, etc. I built a little kind of ghetto mounting plate on my dashboard so I guess it would be nice if the design allows for fairly easy attachment of velcro tabs on the back of it.
The main complaint I have about the X is that the internet speeds seem pretty slow. Like slower now than they were initially--a colleague of mine told me if they see lots of data usage on an unlimited account that they'll throttle it. The other thing she told me is that if I already have the unlimited data plan, I can keep it even though I'm upgrading and signing a new contract.
So, any tips? I have my eye on the DROID 4 and the DROID Bionic.
I'm sure people will chime in on tips about the upgrade/renew process itself so those comments are appreciated as well.
