    Hey folks

    I have the option to leave Verizon and get out of my contract and pick new phone service due to a job change.

    Really having an issue. I do like the D2 but don't need the keyboard.

    I would love the ability to surf and talk at the same time. That said, what are my choices?

    Thanks

    RR

    I think it will be depending upon where you go. If you are going into a major metro area then you can go sprint or tmobile, they have a lot of good android devices scheduled this year.

    wondering if I should go "month to month" until the Thunderbolt comes out.

    Can you surf and talk on sprints network?

    I think you should get an idont..er a iphone...what they do....do is phone and surf at the same time....that's what I hear anyway.

    Plus you don't have to worry about all this rooting, rom's, theme's, and so on stuff that us poor Android users do.

    I prefer the Android OS over iphones. I thought there as discussions about the Thunderbolt having that feature even though the network is different than AT&T's.

    It's not the phone, it's the network. CDMA doesn't allow talk/data at the same time, GSM does. Won't matter anymore I guess once LTE takes off.

    Thanks

    does that mean a strategy would be to hold for the Thunderbolt since it will be running dual LTE and 3G?

    That's the read I'd take on it. Pass on all the IwannabeaPhone garbage.

    well 4gLTE isn't available everywhere. and if you don't live around 4g area then you cant surf and talk.. so the TB would be pointless for someone living in the boondocks or something like that :p
