    So I am really trying to make a decision. I have been watching various droid phones for a while now, and I really like the Droid X. Over the last month I have been really interested in the new HTC TB, and I was getting excited about jumping into an LTE phone. Right now I have an Envy2 that shuts itself off randomly several times a day, and my mom offered to buy me a new smartphone, add me to their family plan, and pay my data plan for a year. Only catch is that this is contingent on taking advantage of Verizon's deal to waive the $10 / month add a line fee with a data plan - and that deal runs out at the end of January.

    So if I wait for the TB, I'll have to pay the $10 / month fee plus whatever the extra charges are for LTE. If I go Droid X now, I pay nothing for a year. I am relatively broke, so I'm leaning towards just getting the X now and hopefully upgrading to the TB or maybe something better in the fall when my sister is due for a new phone (she just got a new phone for Christmas through other means).

    So, do you think it's worth waiting and paying more to grab the TB, or just enjoy a free DX for a while and upgrade when possible?

    I just got a droid x yesterday and I love it! I was in the same boat as you and I really wanted to get the thunderbolt but I ended up buying the x and im very satisfied with the phone, especially upgrading from a non smartphone! The only thing is no front facing camera and no 4g, but it does have an hdmi port and the tb doesn't, hope this helps!

    I would say get the X, it's an awesome phone. If you want an unlocked bootloader it isn't for you, but you don't sound like you'll be running roms or anything. The X is perfect for me. It's fast, has a great camera, but as mentioned no forward camera, has a beautiful screen and is very large, but not heavy. Plus, you get to save money! :) hope that helped.

    No way...the X is worthless. Wait for the TB.

    Lol at that^

    My vote is to wait for the Thunderbolt. With it not being too far away, 4G + FFC and all of its other stat sheet beauties will be well worth the wait.

    wow owned.

    but really, is your area going to be covered by 4g? Have you checked out the X in person yet and demo'd it?

    if you're relatively broke, then I would say you shouldn't even be considering a smartphone with the extra data charge and all. However, if your mom is kind enough to pay for it then you should discuss with her more about the X.

    The droid x is going to be a discontinued phone in less then 6 weeks so I wouldn't bother with that.

    many older droids will eventually fade out, like any other phones. the options right now are endless, it is really to your liking on what you wanna do with the phone. wait it out, try the new versions coming out soon. get a feel for it, but when the right one is for you, I do hope you share your thoughts about it. iPhone is ok but Android right now just kills.
