I wasn't planning on upgrading for another year anyway, and this seals it. When I buy a new phone, any phone that doesn't run Cyanogen on the day I want to buy will be out of consideration. (I'm locked into Cyanogen itself; it's just a useful barometer for how healthy the ROM community is for a given model.) By the time I buy, D3 will have been hacked, so I might confuse the VZW guy when I pass up on the (locked) D4 to buy a year-old model.
And they can have my unlimited data plan when they pry it out of my cold, dead hands.
