    Yeah, you can easily get 75-95% of the full retail cost of a device if you sell at the right time. And forums are even better than Swappa and eBay in my opinion. This forum doesn't have a section for buying/selling/trading, but others do. No fees and smooth transactions all around in my experience. I do a little on eBay from time to time, but I like to stick to the forums for that sort of thing.

    Actually J-K, it is not so much that they are having issues with 4G as it is that they have been having serious problems getting the nVidia Tegra2 chipset to work with 4G without losing signal completely (along with some battery life problems which will remain, if they do not address the idea of larger capacity batteries since the Tegra line *not that they are battery hogs* but that they are.... simply powerhouses.) %In essence, other than 4G issues, they are trying to put mush more powerful Video Cards in they Desktops without really upgrading the Power supply (something most current Computer gamers would understand is of pretty much dire importance.)

    So far, it seems they are in a big debate between TI Omap, another chipset and waiting on nVidia to get their issue/s fixed. personally, I greatly hope that nVidia gets their issue/s worked out, the T2+ and even the slightly older Tegra chipsets are absolutely wonderful.

    I just got my gf an atrix for free from att...omg beast phone. The bionic will be similar to it, great battery too I abused it for like two hours battery barely dropped anything.

    Given it was uglier than my tb but nothing a launcher can't fix. I'm a little jealous, that screen is amazing too

    yea everybody saying "well i dont know what your issue is with 4g mine is great!" need to quit. yes, the coverage is expanding but you need to realize there are people OUTSIDE the coverage area. 4g isnt all over the nation just yet. then you have to worry about the coverage limitations, ie how many users are running on the 4g network in your area. verizon is quite popular and i know a few people within the coverage area with 4g devices that simply dont get their 4g all the time. its much faster when they do have it, i wont deny that. but 3g isnt as bad as people make it out to be. hell i still get up to 3mbs download speed with 2 bars of service on my lg ally while tethering! keyboard all the way, unless you have the droid x like me. huge screens make touch keyboards more enjoyable. and the droid 3 has a beastly screen as well, so you get to pick-n-choose which one you wanna use at the moment.

    Droid 3 vs Bionic

    My droid one goes by by on 8/1. I want either the Bionic or the Droid 3. I love having a keyboard but 4g will not be available in my area for another 1.5 - 2 years. The bionic is so tempting if it ever comes out.

    I'm in Chicago and have LTE aplenty but am still leaning towards the Droid 3 right now.

    I'm in Wifi so much I just can't see the the extra battery drain being worth the hassle. Also, if I already hate the battery life on my OG Droid, won't it only get worse? :-/

    I have the original Droid and tradeup starts 7/14! I am looking very strongly at Bionic and just recently at the Galaxy S II. The larger screen of the Bionic will win out if it is larger. I use it for email and web searches a lot so extra screen will be beneficial.

    Battery life is one of the most important features to a smartphone theses days. If vzw cannot figure out 4g and battery life anytime soon, than I am sticking with 3g and wifi myself. I heard the Charge isn't (edit) bad with battery though right? I would still take the Dinc2 over most phones out now.

    I do not think we are going to see the Galaxy S2 for a very long time. Especially since Samsung is in legal battles with Apple right now.

    I have a Droid Charge and the battery life is actually pretty good, but I am in a 3G zone now, 4G sometime later this year. The SAMOLED+ display helps with battery life. That said Samsung is still pushing ahead with the launch of their phones, the time lines are more carrier driven than Samsung driven. Whether or not Apple's case has any merit, which I don't see any merit in it. What I see is Apple trying to bully another company and they ARE scared of what Android is doing and Samsung is putting out very competitive devices. When you can beat them outright you sue them.

    I meant to say the Charge isn't bad with battery. I miss-typed:). I agree I do not like Apples bully techniques. I think Samsung at the moment is less worried about getting Verizon to play ball with them, when the GS2 is already basically Att and tmobile ready as is. I think that VZW and Samsung will both drag their feet when it comes to the S2.
