    Id like to but I might jump ship to Sprint :/ ... even with a discount my bill is pretty hefty.

    Depends on the bootloader for me. If it's locked then there's a good chance I'll look elsewhere. I'll also be watching which LTE phones the dev's are picking up.

    Next phone is going to be determined by the bootloader lock down status.

    ALL boot loaders are going to be locked down from now on. There's no reason for them not to.

    I believe they can still make custom ROMs for devices with locked boot loader using something called "side loading"

    Call me crazy -- I am definitely making the switch over to the Bionic. I like my D1, but it runs a bit slow at times -- I even have envy over my wifes X, so I know dual core processor will beef it up to where I need it - dual camera and all that have me convinced...

    That will satisfy me... for at least 6 months.
