Hi all, been awhile away from here galavanting around with an Epic 4G "flashed" to boost mobile. Down to $45/line unlimited everything even to land lines was nice and all but the phones my wife and I have are starting to get glitchy and we both agree that if we have to deal with Sprint's (boost) 3G data speeds much longer we are going to go crazy. Also the fact that the few times I used the wimax 4G (don't ask how on boost), it was often only marginally faster than VZW 3G. So I unsuspended our VZW accounts with grandfathered unlimited data and all and we are in the market to get new phones to replace my DX and her OG Droid. D3 is looking like the clear winner and I know that unless I am really impressed by something else I am going to get it. We've had the Stratosphere (Epic) for awhile and it is a great phone but I'm not happy about the basically 0 dev support for it as well as the fact that it is waaaaaay outdated now and we don't have LTE out here yet anyway. My wife may want it just for the simple fact that she sucks at learning new technology and it is basically the same phone as her old Epic so whatever. Came back on these forums after a long hiatus and wow there is a great dev section here for the D3 with alot of familiar faces.
Before I take the plunge I just wanted to see if anyone has any good reason I should not be buying one of these phones and the D4 coming out in a month is not one of them. I do not want a phone I can't pull the battery out of and the D3 being a world phone (I travel a lot and am sick of not having one) trumps anything the D4 does for me at least. I can get the D3 for free right now on Newegg for my wife (or $30 or something for the Strat) as an upgrade and I'm doing the same thing for me via a ghost line to get one and to have a spare dumb phone available in case one of ours breaks and as a "house line". I personally cannot find a reason to not get a D3 right now but maybe those with more experience with them might?
