    I currently use the Droid 1 as my phone. I can get an upgrade now if I wanted to, but I'm not a big Thunderbolt fan. I was able to find a friend who would sell me his used Droid X for 150 (the phone is in great shape).

    Should I buy the X off my friend and then upgrade when more LTE devices come out, or just stand pat and stick with the OG Droid? I love the Droid keyboard, but it's such a limited phone at this point in the game.

    I think I would buy the X for $150 and save the upgrade for a Bionic.

    I actually down graded from an X to an incredible for the unlocked bootloadet and couldn't be happier.
    CM7 > Liberty ...by a country mile.

    Forgot to mention my upgrade is in six months so I figured I would enjoy the Dinc until the 4g market gets more phones with unlocked bootloaders

    +1 on the waiting. Get your friend's x if you really want to change phones, but save your upgrade for later. Something to also consider, just because you can get a 4g phone, make sure you have 4g service in your area. I just stopped by a store this morning and asked them if we had it in my area yet, knowing we don't, or when we would. He said we don't yet, but should later this year. Not real sure why I would want to pay for something that I can't use for how long still? Just my two cents.

    I would get the x for that and save the upgrade. Heck you can sell the D1 for nearly that. I loaded the gb upgrade on mine today and it's like a whole new phone. Love it.

    Yeah, save the upgrade for the Bionic.

    Wait, the Incredible 2 is coming out after the Bionic, wait for it instead.

    Wait, the Droid X2 is coming out after the Incredible 2, wait for it.

    Wait, the Droid 3 is coming out after the Droid X2, wait for that.

    Wait...
    Get it?
