I already did enough was enough cant wait on Motorola to get off their butt and fix the issues

Just like I do not cancel my cable when there are outages, nor do I turn off my electricity because it went out. Now, I have been conpensated with my cable company when it a while to fix the problem.
My bionic is stable, works great and does most everything I would like it to do. I have very reasonable expectations of a smartphone. It is not a perfect device, none are. I strayed from Motorola on a few occasions in my cell phone life since the early 90s but I always end up back with moto. My last 3 month venture with the LG 4g phone was a nightmare, where it would not allow me to set how often to check for emails and a battery that was only a few hours of life. I was so glad to have a Bionic after that. Even on 3g with my d2 I could beat most of my friends searching for something ( without racing). Most friends have the istuff, but many have admired my device and these are busy moms- not tech people who mess a lot with root, boot, or speed tests. Just real world use, for real world people who want a device that does what they want it to do.
Now if one of the techies can make a different phone do my laundry, drive kids to practices, help kids with homework, and cook dinner..... I might look at changing!
And in MY area, Verizon works reliably. But I do miss Alltel!
ETA- I do look forward to what new things happen with an update!

If you have been reading most of my posts lately, i have been saying I'm thinking of coming back with either the GNex or Rezound. But I'm almost tempted to just wait for the next wave of super phones to see what we get.
Now that 901 is on my phone I'm very happy with the Bionic,its the phone I wanted it to be and should hold me over for at least a year and a half.
I admit, if I had a faulty Bionic I'd probably be pretty mad too, especially since I came from a POS X2 before hand. I would've taken a blood oath to swear off Motorola forever. So I can empathize with those of you who just straight up disliked their Bionic. I don't blame you. But there's no reason to call others names or "Bionic zealots," as one user so eloquently posted, just because you were screwed over and they weren't. Also Sub-Zero is a bad ass, so bonus points for you.
As for the next phone, I personally would just hold off for the quad cores. Yeah, they'll have bugs on release...so wait a few months before you buy. It'll only be another month or two before a whole new squad of flagships come flying in, so if you can manage that long I'd personally just wait. Conversely, I think the Rezound is better than the Nexus. An unlocked bootloader isn't the end of the world for other phones. All these other phones will still have plenty of rooted customization options, so unless you plan on REALLY going all out with phone modding, unless you want a slightly larger screen, I see no benefit to the Nexus. ICS is still buggy, no removable storage (a major letdown), and mediocre battery life. I've been hearing great things about the Rezound though, my only complaint is the ugly extended battery...
Actually the internal memory is pretty nice. It all goes to one place, no media area or any of that. And I don't have any bugs and the battery is just short of the killer life my Bionic has. Keep in mind the people with the problems are the ones that post most. Same with any phone really.
