    Like deja vu from when I was with the sunken ship HMS Nextel. Although I think they sucked on Motorola's tit harder than VZN. I remember fr iends on other networks getting slicker, sleeker phones and the coolest thing I could upgrade to was the Moto i930 which was so thick I was a ble to use it as a wheel chock for a car that was out of control and about to run over a baby. At least I have reliable service with VZN compared to Nexthell. And now il get to hear about the awesomeness of the GS2 from other people. This was a very wise move by Verizon. Great job guys!!

    Yes, this is actually kind of bothersome if they really passed on the GSII becasue they think the Charge actually compares.

    I think they even already have an LTE version out or in development in another country

    Indeed, I wouldnt "wait" for a bionic at this point, too many, well aparently 1 less now, good phones coming out to near it.

    Looks to me like it MIGHT be the prime (only going by the way the specs are looking) but we will find out in less than a week one way or another :)

    Looks to me that if VZW is not getting it, then it might be a good time to switch to Sprint. I am tired of $135 a month phone bills, when Sprint charges $79 for the same plan that I have with VZW. The fact that Sprint is also getting one of the coolest Android phones to ever hit the market, might be enough to make me jump ship.

    Lol, I was typing in the car and my dad was swerving. Some dumb cop walked into the middle of the street and just stopped, my dad was a foot away from him and he just stood there.
    I meant to say, The word liar never came out of my mouth. If you really think a pentile screen is better then you're just fooling yourself

    4.5 inch screen? Really come one too big. I want a phone, if I wanted a tablet Id buy a tablet. As far as Im concerned 4.3 is the upper limit for me and thats even pushing it. Replacing an already big phone with an even bigger one is not a replacement. The only way it would be ok is if they could basically make the whole front screen and have the bigger screen without making the phone any bigger.
