Root? Very likely IMO.
The real answer though: wait a month till the Rezound falls below $100 and get that instead. The worst of the current Tier 1 phones is much better than any of the phones in your quote. I think it would be worth the wait. It is NOT worth settling with one of those phones just to save $50 IMO.
(Keep in mind that people are buying those Rezound earbuds on eBay...last I saw they were going for $66 bare minimum...if you dont want them yourself you could sell them to defray the cost of the phone)
K so at this point then its either Spectrum or Dinc2 and if I got the money Rezound will be my first choice with Spectrum second and if I can't round up any change Dinc2. Thanks Mr. Denver.

While I do agree with Jeff that the prices on everything will probably drop after mwc, I disagree with him on one thing. He doesn't like the bionic at all, I on the other hand love it. Mine has been rock solid since I got it and it was my choice over both the resound and nexus. You really need to get into a Verizon and handle each phone and then decide whick way to go.

It might be different for people with deep pockets who can upgrade every 6 months. Or for people on family plans where they get access to a new upgrade every 6 months because they have 4 or 6 phones on their account. For me, I will have this phone for the full length of my contract (I had my Droid 1 a full 20 months). So this is NOT something I want to compromise on. I wont get a chance to upgrade again for a long long time unless I want to pay retail.
It sounds like the OP is in the same boat. For that reason, I think it is a mistake not to get the BEST phone possible with your upgrade. I would advise the OP against getting a cheaper phone for the next 2 years just to save $50 immediately.
- Rezound has a true 720p screen with the best pixel density of any phone (and this is really the main reason I think it is better)
- The Rezound can be legitimately unlocked through HTC's website...HTC will not be throwing root roadblocks in my way
- The Rezound has one of the best cameras on any phone right now (including the front camera)
- The Rezound comes with expensive earbuds for free, which can be sold even if you dont want them
- 64 Gig SD cards have been confirmed to work on the Rezound...I dont know if that is true for the Bionic
I cant think of anything the bionic does better than the Rezound. I think the Rezound even beats it in benchmarks. The only reason to get a Bionic over a Rezound at all IMO is because it is cheaper.
