    You bought what you wanted. Stop griping about what you could have had if you waited. the only difference is LTE and a larger screen anyways.

    Verizon's LTE network is having the second major outage in three months - and when this happens, LTE phones cannot get even 3G data. Are you guys absolutely sure that you want to give up your stable 3G phone right now?

    You're wasting your time. If they did nothing for Bionic users they're not going to do anything for D3 users. It's technology, it gets outdated. Get over it.

    Also more ram I believe.

    I agree tho. Lately Android phones are kinda "Playing themselves out" It's ridiculous that they found a sector that can generate so much money on putting out an updated product one after another after another. I got so fed up that I bought an iPhone 4s.
    Figured, it cost Apple $188 in hardware to make, I'll buy it for $199.00 By the time my upgrade is do again, who knows what will be out. Android wise, or iPhone 5s.

    What ever. Don't try cheating the system cause you can't. You will not upgrade early unless you pay BIG bucks for the phone.

    I worked at a computer shop for 10 years. I saw the same thing happen with Video Cards / Processors. Customer would purchase a top of the line gaming rig one week, and 2 weeks later there would be something better out. It all goes back to what phone makes you happy and does job.

    Hey change.org has made a difference in a lot of different areas. So doesn't hurt to try. But when I called the local vzw store thismorning, the guy said he never even heard of the droid 4. I was like, well, you're supposed to be releasing it tomorrow.. he said, 'News to me'.

    I honestly do understand what all of you are saying. Planned obsolescence is just a part of electronics. But I think that 5 or 6 months is just ridiculous. And it cant hurt to try...

    I really doubt they will do an early upgrade that opens a big can of worms. Thing is I love my D3 also for me I could care less about the D4 since it is not a global phone, plus i cant put on a bigger battery. If people think that the phones are being upgraded to fast go back to apple they are still running single core processors. Get an iphone you dont have to worry you will be behind the curve for two years Android gives you alot more upgrades.

    I guess I'm one of those complacent people. I wouldn't upgrade now, even if Verizon gave me a free one. Android phone manufacturers and cell providers are helping each other vacuum out consumers' pockets. In principle, that sucks. In reality, all they're doing is trying to separate consumers from their money by enticing them with the new "it" phone. I couldn't care less because I don't want the "it" phone. Honestly, I'm still just relieved that this one works.
