    Droid X2 or 4G?

    I'm going to Verizon tomorrow and was thinking 4G but have read a bunch of horror stories about the 4G not working well, often more poorly than a 3G phone, so I'm thinking the X2 may be a better idea.

    It honestly depends, what will you use your phone for? For me I think 4G is as gimmicky as the Wii is. Are people really that impatient? My 3G speeds are fine here.

    If you think about it, almost every public place you go to now (schools, airports, coffee shops, your house (assumingly)) has wifi. Remember to save all the profiles everywhere you go and your phone will automatcally switch to it. Plus, 4G is a battery killer compared to wifi/3g.

    +2. Buy a phone for the phone, not the data speed. There are also the rumors that you'll be able to upgrade later and keep your unlimited plan, as long as you have any smartphone plan prior to tiered data going into effect. (I hope this is true).

    +3 Love my DX2 I got a week ago. Also, another thing to think about that I read on another forum somewhere is that once 4G gets more popular and more people use it, 3G will be freed up so speeds on it will be even faster. I really see no need for 4G unless you're going to be watching YouTube 24/7 while downloading music, surfing the web and talking on the phone while texting.

    If I were you, leave VZ and go to Sprint.
    I really want to do that right now.
    I have nothing against VZ, but they seem to be falling behind. Phone wise that is, since nothing compares to VZ's 3G and 4G

    The EVO3D makes me drool.
    But my Droid X will do for now, running fast as always.

    Some sites are suggesting there are no longer going to be any "4g" "3g" plans. As long as you had an unlimited data plan you can switch to a 4g device after july and still be fine. New customers are getting the shaft however..

    Edit: To above post.. Evo 3D is overrated.
