This is how I figured it out. I prepay my Verizon account just shy of 5 months at a whack, payment due in December. Buy HTC DNA early December, little cash out of pocket, than abuse phone and have the HTC friends drool. Get tired of owning a "wired" phone, return for maxx HD, again little more money out of pocket. Up grade from maxx to maxx HD is a painless segue. And it won't fell like a $700+ screen update.
