    While I'm excited about the Bionic the thing that may hold me back is the 4G data rates. Especially since I'm in a city that 4G has yet to roll out in. 3G on my D1 isn't bad, I couldn't justify paying much more than I pay now even if 4G is X times faster.

    At what price point would 4G data rates be a deal breaker for you?

    Probably no more than 10 dollars a month for unlimited. It would be nice if the price was the same as 3g though.

    I'll be looking to see what's up with T-Mobile when the time comes to upgrade. I love my D1 but T-Mobile is supposed to have their High speed up to 42Mbps later this year.

    honestly the current pricing upsets me. I have to pay $20 a person per month for my brother and I just to have our droids. It's ridiculous. I don't even use more then 20mb in a month of OTA data. Everywhere I go I have wifi so I just jump on that but VZW requires data plans for the phone. I wish they had a 50mb/month plan for like $5.99 cuz I'd be all over that.

    So in short, if 4g is even more then 3g, I won't be upgrading...

    Yes that's what will suck the higher cost.

    4G?

    I still don't understand how 4G is going to be true 4G? The infrastructure here in the United States can barely handle 3G so I think we're gonna get ripped off on these "4G" phones when they really aren't offering 4G. Is there going to be IPv6 support or not?

    It would be nice if we could pay for just 3g until 4g is actually worth paying for/usable.
