    To go new or used Droid? Or Nexus...your opinions please?

    So here's my question....I initially had an Eris, and it was just too slow, although very cool and sleek with HTC Sense. So I sold that and am now trying to decide between:

    1)a new droid via wirefly for 24.99 and canceling my current contract for $155, thus probably close to $200 with corresponding fees, etc.
    2) new, but from a local seller, only activated to get the BOGO offer, for $275 without a new contract and all of the hassle.
    3)Nexus one

    So what do you guys think as faithful Droid owners? With the 2.1 update will I be happy with the speed and features of the Droid? Or should I just wait for the Nexus?

    And....which way seems most logical as far as getting the phone...as I mentioned above? Any better ideas?

    Thanks Droid freaks....

    Sort of up to you. Nexus has the advantage of being the latest and greatest, but the Droid is tried and true, and has a physical keyboard....

    If you can figure out the phone, then the cheaper solution is usually for me the more logical.

    I left the iPhone and Blackberry world for Droid. I too had the Eris, but craved the bigger screen and power of the Droid. For me anyway, the Droid does everything I need and is a very tough phone. I'm sure the N1 is an excellent phone, but I'm sticking with my Droid and waiting semi-patiently for the 2.1 update to arrive.

    Well I renewed my contract before that came into play, so mine is at $150 right now. However, it seems that with all of the charges for a new separate line and pro-rated this and thats, and cancellation fees, etc., etc., that Verizon explained to me, it would be best to buy the phone from this guy locally. I just hope the Droids are pretty reliable, because although this fellas' phone is new, I would not be able to get it serviced at Verizon due to the fact that I didn't buy the phone from them directly.

    Ya, I found the Droid that I was referring to on craigslist. Just hope the phones are pretty solid......no Verizon warranty......guess I could call Motorola if I had any problems with the hardware? Ya right.....

    Verizon voids the warranty if a phone is switched to a different line.....atleast that's what some Verizon customer service lady told me....
