    Ya I currently own a Charge and the 4G speeds are amazing. When my phone drops to a 3G network it is really slow. So if you are soon getting 4G network I definitely recommend a 4G phone. Wait for the bionic or get one of the 4G LTE phones.

    Okay guys, tell me honestly... I have big fingers, which makes the touch screen keyboard evil sometimes... I also will not have 4G by the end of 2011... according to the verizon wireless website anyway. I live in a small town, and I go to school in a bigger town, but still not big enough I guess. I guess going to a major university in Virginia Tech still doesn't qualify Blacksburg for 4G. So, in not wanting to spend a ton of money for 4G tech that I can't use for at least another year and a half... What should I do?

    You go to tech? :p

    I say go with what feels right to you. I say go to a store when the D3 comes out and see how it feels. Same with the Bionic when it comes out. Then go with which ever you like the best.

    I get my NE@ discount in Oct but I can buy the D3 now at the 2 year contract price (I think my NE2 discount is $50 or $100 not sure which). More than likely I will wait but the D3 does seem liek a great phone.

    Have to be honest, the $460 outright price is tempting, but I just bought an incredible 2 and it is quick. The extra RAM isn't talked about a lot but it really helps.

    Damn it! Now I'm facing a difficult choice too! D3 / Bionic

    Hey, Everyone! = )

    My new-every-two will be available to me on July 11th. I am a twisted mess as I try to choose between the D3, and potentially epic Bionic. Up until about a week ago, at which point, I dropped my D1 into my bathtub, I relied on a physical keyboard for all my text input. My fingers seemed to always accidentally land on some letter or character by accident as I moved on to my next desired letter or character... So... after my D1 took a dunk, I let it dry out on my laptop fan for 3 days... and it came back to life... mostly. The physical keyboard was still wonky though, and if I used it, would crash my phone. So, I learned to use the on-screen keyboard, and it discovered just how well the voice input function works. It's actually quite good so long as you are not in a noisy environment, and be sure to speak slowly and clearly. Anyway... I am torn between the D3, and waiting for the ghostly Bionic. I think that now, I can live without the physical keyboard, but I really do prefer having one if for no other reason for the forced screen orientation. My D1 is working well again, but it feels so dated and slow now, and I want something faster! What can I say? I'm a speed junkie! I know that it's impossible to promise anything about the Bionic, and I'm only sharing this info to show others that I am at my renewal date, and pulling my hair out trying to pick one!

    Your not alone!
    I would have just gotten a Charge, but the feel of the device doesn't make you feel like your buying a $300 dollar phone.

    It sounds like you just described exactly what the Droid 3 provides. If there is no chance for you to ever use 4G then getting the Bionic would seem like overkill.

    Not really. The Charge is really worth that extra money. The Charge has been working out greately for me and I have had no problems so far.

    Overpriced in my opinion. No dual core, only 512MB ram, only 2GB onboard storage. Worth $200 but not $300. That is just crazy.
