    Hi everybody, I'm new to the forum here and calling on your knowledge!

    I'm now eligible for an upgrade and am grandfathering in an unlimited data plan.

    I definitly want a 4G droid device.

    I want to be able to easily root the phone to use it for tethering or Hotspot with the regular data plan.

    So, here's the million dollar question - Which phone?

    I'm brand new to hacking phones.. looking forward to responces!

    Thanks!

    Just wait 7 days and get the bionic. If you dont your going to wish you had. After you get the bionic you going to wish you had waited 2 months and got what ever else is coming out....ya know?

    But seriously....wait for the Bionic! Its going to be the first dual processor 4g phone verzion has the other phone dont really compare!..... Its worth waiting for! especially JUST 7 days...its not like your waiting a month...Just 7...short days....you will have the newest and greatest!

    If you decided to not to wait for the bionic(which would be a bad decision on your part) I think I would go with the charge....But....I would personally just wait(like i have been)....none of the new 4g phones from verizon are worth even upgrading to at this point. The droid bionic will atleast be worth the upgrade!

    Thanks for the input, I think you may be right, I'm only concerned about the ability to root it and wireless tether.

    I'm assuming since it's a new model, it might take a bit to get the rooting process down?

    again, I'm new at this - Thanks!!
