    I went to verizon today asking about there bionic & the manager there tells me they are not putting it out. I was upset & didn't believe him. Then I found articles online verifying the bionic will not come out, at the end of the year Motorola will be releasing a phone with features of the bionic but will be called dinara. Basically the phone didn't get passed by the fcc h they have too many issues with the bionic to release it. It's not stable & overheats too much. I'm so disappointed :(

    Don't believe everything you read online, the Bionic had issues was revamped and will be released within the next month...

    If this is an actual true story, the reps on Verizon will say anything to get a sale done that instant.....

    As far as I remember, those rumors came out a while ago and were never confirmed. The phone probably got revamped and will be still released under the name bionic.

    Two days before the Direct Fill of the D3 the Manager at my local corporate store told me straight to my face she has never heard of the Droid 3 and that I have to be referring to the D2G - don't give VZW employees that much credibility

    I believe it for the reason that I haven't seen any fcc form passing it. And fcc has to be passed before mass production can happen but find a fcc form passed then let's get this shown back on the road

    The articles you refer to are dated @ 3 months ago when the Bionic was "delayed" for revamping.

    I could not "google" any blogs or articles more recently qualifying your statement.

    The Dinara has already been talked about.

    Verizon released a website and email sign up campaign about its forthcoming release.

    I would be VERY surprised if a cancallation is in order.

    Moreover, don't believe every Verizon employee. :)

    Verizon employees are pretty clueless. They know how to do one thing and one thing only.... Sell phones. Don't believe a word that comes out of their mouths.
