    The GS2 is going to crap all over the Bionic. I have a D1 and Moto is not even on my radar anymore when it comes to my next phone. It will either be the GS2 or the Nexus Prime if that heads over to VZW.

    You know how Moto could track how many people root their phones.........unlock the bootloader of the D3 in like 2 weeks or so and see how many people jump to buy it then. I know it won't happen but it would be interesting to see the spike in sales if they did this.

    I think the Droid 3 is actually the nicest phone I've held in my hands. It absolutely has the best keyboard I've ever used on a phone.

    In spite of that, I waited to see the Bionic and Galaxy S II. Of course at the time, I thought the Bionic was coming Aug 4th.

    I wanted to hold out for the Bionic, but the BoGo was just too good a deal to pass up! My wife is officially a convert and loves her D3.

    the way i see it, i can always sell my free D3 to offset the cost of a bionic or some other phone.

    There are 214,171 registered members here. I think people here forget what a paltry sum we are compared to the millions of each model of phone that are sold to Joe blow and Jane ho. Even if every single member here held off on the D3 for the Bionic. Or purchased the D3, and gave up waiting for the Bionic, it would be negligible to the overall sales numbers.

    I was torn between the D3 and Samsung Charge. Started hearing about the Bionic and the Samsung but what sold me on the D3 was the slide out keyboard with number key row. Love my D3, have no issues with it whatsoever. Happy with my decision.

    My update came up last week and I have never had a smartphone before. So this d3 is amazing to me, and does so much I can't believe it. Plus it was buy one get one free.

    This phone is sold out for 60 miles around me. I live in San Diego and I've been trying to get one.

    It's already BOGO isn't it??? Usually that means that it didn't sell as well as they had hoped.

    VZW always does BOGO for the Droids. It has nothing to do with slow sales. Its cuz they buy so many phones from Moto that they can discount em and use em to lock in new customers.

    ^Dont feed into it...

    Put it like this....for folks to take advantage of the BOGO they have to at least buy one first right? And if you buy another phone and use the BOGO on the Droid 3 (if you can do that) ....you do have to actually choose the Droid 3 right?

    Its sold out online. No matter how you measure it ppl wanted it and chose it.
