    LOL, I would love to hear your opinion on which technology on the Bionic is actually "virgin"...There is nothing ground breaking associated with the Bionic.

    Sure there was. The Bionic was the first device to use Motorola's proprietary LTE chipset.

    It's not ground breaking if it doesn't work :)

    That just shows how little you actually know.

    1. It's Moto's FIRST attempt at an LTE device
    2. It's the FIRST dual core LTE device from any manufacturer on any network.

    So yeah it's going to have more issues than the 2nd iteration of dual core/lte devices. Growing pains have to happen somewhere, otherwise there wouldn't be any progress whatsoever.

    Not to mention the fact that the LTE network as a whole is still in the development phase. I also want to point out that there isn't a single LTE device that hasn't suffered the exact same problems at some point in time.

    oh, you did mean virgin for Moto, I misunderstood as virgin tech in general.

    yeah, it seems every technology coming out of Moto is virgin to them...

    Works for me, but Verizon (the network provider) has dropped the ball a few times.

    Evidently, you missed this point too:

    And this point:

    I see that your profile says your using a thunderbolt, bionic envy possibly?

    I does seem like the Bionic is on its way to being discontinued to me. It's the same price as the TB, lower priced than the Droid 3 and almost the same price as the Illusion. Talking to a tech yesterday she said they see the Bionic and Gnex there quite a lot. She said the Rezound almost never comes in for repair or with issues. She said that is their most dependable 4g phone out right now.

    I'd like to see numbers as to how many bionics and nexus have been sold versus how many rezounds have been sold. I'd be willing to bet that there have been far more bionics and nexus sold, so if that is true, there would obviously be more of them returned for service.

    Although I have heard good things about the rezound! I just take all "statistics" with doubt until I see the big picture.

    Yes you are right. You make a good point. I didn't think about the number sold.

    well no....actually busting his b**ls is exactly what you have been doing this entire thread...... demanding he give you information and such. If you want to bust his stones at least be honest that that is what you are doing. Luckily for you you did it to him and not me because I would have used some phrases towards you that would have def got me a "time out"

    you aren't an Internet sleuth nor should you try to pretend to be one in real life....so how about not make your first 16 posts about trying to show up someone else ok?

    The OP stated he heard the Bionic was being discontinued, we asked for his source. The source was checked and deemed to be inaccurate. /End of thread. If you're going to come on here and made bold claims, I would hope somebody would ask for a credible source and do some double checking. After talking to the sales/service reps in my local Verizon store, i would never post anything they say as some sort of truth or inside scoop.

    Again it's not about busting someones stones. It's about threads like this one popping up every week, every time an update is rumored, every time an update is released, and every time Moto/Verizon release a vaguely worded Tweet or Facebook post. People take these rumors and hearsay third hand statements as gospel truth and run to teh internets and post away that the the sky is falling and moto has "done it to us again...I'm suing...etc" If more fact checking was done and less posting was done, then half the threads on this forum relating to ICS, .901/.902, .893, .894, and every other leaked cheesecake update would disappear.

    I agree 100%, Im getting quite tired of people feeding the rumor mill and causing an uproar over information that isn't even close to being accurate.

    It's really quite simple. Step#1 Think Step#2 Post

    WOW, what gave it away? Was it the "Sent from my DROID BIONIC using DroidForums" on the bottom of my post?!?

    So far all you have to back up your claim for "virgin technology" is the dual-core, which, although being first in USA, is NOT the first dual-core phone. Not to mention that quad-cores are about to begin shipping...

    If you honestly believe the Bionic is a ground breaking phone using virgin technology, you should probably follow your own advice next time, i.e. Step#1 Think Step#2 Post

    So many people on here call others out, and then when they get a good response, those people who had enough courage to call others out, never have enough courage to admit they were wrong.

    Altrus, you got your response, own up to it instead of trying to downplay everything. If you hate the Bionic so bad, throw yours out and replace it. If you don't hate it, stop being an antagonizer.

    Geeze folks, you can tell we are between releases again! Seriously, if you are this bored, I'd recommend you navigate to other areas of the forum and take a look, it's a great break from the rehashed topics we keep churning through. Really, there is interesting stuff out there. I'm starting to get visuals of really angry people glaring and growling at their phones! Think about it... Just sayin'

    On the contrary, so many people here think that just because a technology is virgin to them - it should be virgin to anyone. Maybe this phone is truly groundbreaking in Utah, I don't know, but there is nothing, absolutely nothing that is groundbreaking or virgin (as in technology) on the Bionic. I am getting really tired of people trying to blame the user for the shortcomings of the hardware. "Oh, your breaks don't work? Then you are probably pushing the gas pedal..."

    As far as throwing my phone away and replacing it - you should be ashamed of yourself, if you really think this way. I hope I don't have to explain why.

    Good plan! :biggrin:

    Thread served it's purpose, OP passed on info, it was discussed, etc etc... closing this now b/c of the petty arguing that's come from it.
