    They can't make you pay for 4G service if it's not available in your area (or 'make' you pay for it at all for that matter).... these phones will handle 3G anyway...

    This has been discussed before and is old news. One of these devices is supposed to be a Vanilla Android device and possibly unlocked.

    If I could wager a guess:
    VZW got overly invested in the Droid 2s (and to a lesser extent, Droid Pros), and are worried that if they released the Merge on their network, they'd be stuck with even more of the Droids that aren't selling well already. It explains why we're seeing huge price cuts to these devices as they're having to unload inventory before the next round of these devices come out.

    I think their plans working, at least to a degree. I was dead set on getting one of the Merges since September, sat on an upgrade until the end of December and finally broke down and got a Droid 2 when the Merge never released.

    I live in a small town in South Carolina so I am sure 4g will not come here for awhile. Heck sometimes I can't even get 3g. So I will be fine with 3g. I would love to get my hands on the Droid X2 when it comes out. I love my DX. I will be excited to see what the changes will be.

    I'd also wager a guess that the reason Alltel got the Merge, is because VZW didn't. Considering that the phone didn't get canned on Verizon until just before its rumored launch, there were probably quite a number of these devices already produced by HTC and ready for shipment - and that probably required a commitment from Verizon to purchase them. When Verizon decided not to release them on their network, they needed a different avenue to unload them... or the Alltel brand, which Verizon owns and operates on Verizon's towers. All they needed to do was remove the Verizon branding at the top of the device (not that hard to do) and switch the displayed branding to Alltel within the OS (again, not hard to do).

    Look at the leaked pictures of what Alltel is getting. It is identical to the device VZW was supposed to get except for the empty space at the top (where the VZW logo was) and the Alltel branding within the OS. It even still has the VZW red accents not seen on any other Desire Z variant - if it was really supposed to be an Alltel device, shouldn't those accents be blue, if anything.

    Anyway, this thread is about the upcoming Droids... so here's to the Droid 3 having vanilla Android and an unlocked bootloader... wishful thinking, I'm sure; but cheers just the same :beer2:

    That was only what I was told by a woman that works the corporate side of verizon that I know personally. All 4g phones will be 4g enabled on activation.

    I HOPE SO! 3G is fine for me. I only stream online radio and watch very few YouTube videos. So what I get is perfect. I could use a price drop on 3G. But I doubt this will happen for a while. 4G will have to go up first.
