    I just entered the droid world in November by getting the DX. I really love it but even in November I was excited for the rumored "Incredible HD" or any Evoish phone on Verizon. So now I really want the Thunderbolt. I'm wondering how much you guys think it would cost to switch over.

    Without an availible update....$750 or $800 is the full retail price.

    Well you would have to pay full retail price which would be a crap load, but you can sell your DX on ebay for a decent price

    Is that not including cancellation fees? How much could I get by selling my DX?

    You wouldn't have to pay cancelation fees because you're not canceling your contract.

    If your X is in a good condition you could probably get around $350 on ebay

    Great! Could I hypothetically just trade for a Tbolt w/o a plan and then activate it? Or do I have to get the new phone through verizon? Sorry for all the stupid questions, I just don't know much about this stuff.

    Anyone have a guess of how much the Tbolt will cost on something like swappa or ebay?
