    What phone has those specs?

    I really looking at the X for my next phone. I am also on a Galaxy Nexus now. But I would need to go to a Verizon Edge plan :/

    VZW is really pushing the edge plan. Must be a real money maker for them! Chris

    It is a huge smoke and mirrors money maker for them. Customers continue to pay the same monthly amount for their plan (which includes the $15 or so for your subsidized phone), except they no longer are entitled to a subsidized phone. Instead, customers must make additional monthly payments for their phone. Win/win for Verizon. For customers? Not so much...

    You can't really blame them though, it's no worse than what the credit card companies do. Basically you agree when you sign up. I don't think many people are naive enough to believe that they're getting a great deal.

    Imo, if we're going to pay full price for the phone they better not put any Verizon adware on it! Even the limited adware on the Moto X that I can't uninstall pisses me off for a phone I end up having to pay for because I agree to stay with them for 2 years. It's MY device why should I be forced to have their **** on it?

    This is the main thing that got me into rooting back in the Droid 1, 2, HTC Thunderbolt days.

    So you willingly gave a business your money even though you disagree with the conditions of their service?

    I guess I forgot about all that stuff because I'm rooted, and removed it

    I put the edge program right up with the preditroy home loans that occurred a few years ago. Might even be some of the same consumers now on another edge! Chris

    Yep. Paying $10-$30/mo less for any other service around here is fail because there's 0 reception with AT&T or Sprint. :( But you got a good point. That said, that's why I went iPhone for the last few years and why I got the Moto X (they said it wasn't rated as badly by Verizon as most phones). lol.

    I'm about to make the jump to a Moto X from a G-Nex as well...that upcoming Cyber Monday deal just seems too good to pass up for someone wanting this phone.

    I don't think you'll regret it. I certainly haven't.

    I'm trying to get the Moto X. Ordered it 2 weeks ago on Moto maker. It cane 5 days later but without the inscription on the back that I specified. Sent it back and they said the received it this past Tuesday, but hadn't processed it yet. Today is Sunday and I still haven't even heard from them. Not impressed with the customer service.
