    Yup still out here. Update available for me. Just waiting for next batch of new phones. Currently running Carbon ROM. Probably flash CM as I'm getting bored. Probably going to give Bionic to daughter. Son also sports one.

    Still here.. but like you update around the corner.. middle of September. Looking at droid maxx or moto x. but heard rumor that theres going to be a moto x maxx. What kills me is from what ive read the droid maxx specs are almost identical to the moto x but with the moto x having a smaller battery. Or am I missing something?

    Looks like update time in Jan. Skype video doesn't work. Tried android app version and xda site. Love this machine with all the accessories, bionic lap dock, car dock, and my dock station. This red dot inside machine is starting to show it's age with constant lag issues. FDR gets old. Haven't done the root thing yet. HD Maxx or S4, maybe Note2. Going to miss my toys. Not impressed with the new moto phones. No SD card? WTF?

    Cancel that thought.
    My friend just skyped me, and the video is loud and clear. Still getting that update urge in me. What's a guy gotta do?

    My biggest gripe is that I'm in love with the PenTile screen. Not because of resolution, PPI, or response time that mostly sucks everyone agrees...but it's the only damn screen on the market that is EASILY readable in direct sunlight. These fancy new phones don't mean much if I have to go inside to use it. Drives me nuts.

    Wow, was a big fan of CyanogenMod on my og droid. Why did I stay away so long???? Just loaded today and love it. Now on 4.3 too. This Bionic still has life left in her. I just picked up my sons stock Bionic and it felt "old".

    Still here, and with a vehicle dock, lap dock, 3 extended batteries, and an external battery charger. Too bad we can't upgrade the RAM in these phones, 2GB would make all the difference...

    Still here too. Only thing I'm irritated by is something is killing my battery. I use the extended battery and within 11hrs its damn near close to 20% its why I came back to this forum other than that its been sweet. Everything stock too.

    Going to Verizon today to upgrade to the Maxx. I had the OG Droid, Bionic, and at 10 o'clock today the Droid Maxx! (God willing)

    I still have my Bionic with al the docks and cases. I would like to get the new Maxx but it does not have a car dock like is available for the Bionic. An easy to use car dock with audio connection is a requirement for me. I will not go back to plugging & unplugging cables when docking.

    Well, it's time to say goodbye to the Bionic. It served me well but I now have the Droid Ultra. After getting over my excitement at Verizon I decided not to spend $300 on a smartphone. When the Bionic came out I was one of those who spent $300 and I will never do that again.

    Well we need another phone in the family and I have my bionic upgrade ready. After spending to much time reading about the ultra, the X, S4 and the pending lG G2 I've pretty much decided that I want to wait to see what the G2 is all about. I think I got my wife talked into the X and passing her RAZR down to the kid. Then I could see first hand the X. My CM 10.2 bionic does everything I need right now. Hmm whats coming out 2014. I always thought I bailed on my OG droid to early.

    I'd certainly like to hear from my bionic brotherern, what they migrated to and if in hind sight they wish they would have waited

    Contract is about to expire. By the way if my contract expires, does that mean I can get out of my contract with Verizon and go into a prepaid plan with them?

    Just for the time being before I get my Google Play Edition of the S4

    Yes, I believe so, I've gone past my contract and all it meant was that I was on month-to-month with them. I paid exactly what I was paying under contract, except I could quit anytime.

    That being said, my contact ends on the 12th of this month and I'll be going after another phone. I may pay for it outright just to keep my unlimited data.

    UPDATE: Found out it was cheaper to go with the Verizon Edge plan. Data limit is 3 times what I need (don't need much) and got the S4.

    That being said, if I knew how fast it would be to get back up to speed, I would've done a factory reset a long time ago.

    My contract ends on the 11th of this month, was eligible to upgrade since March 11th but stuck with my Bionic still yet. I did do some inquiring about upgrading to a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, was offered it for $199, and some free/discounted accessories, but still would have to pay the $30 upgrade fee. Didn't get to discussing whether I'd get to keep my unlimited data plan with a 2 yr upgrade. I also discussed the Edge program with them but being that despite not having to sign a 2 yr service contract extention, having to pay full price AND losing my unlimted data plan for certain, that option was scrapped right away for me.
    I'm planning to wait until a few weeks after my contract ends to try and see if I can get them to offer me some better deals on the Note 2 or another phone, keep my unlimited data, and possibly even get the upgrade fee waived. If they truly want to reward me for my years & years of loyalty with them, then they'll offer some superb deals...well I'd atleast hope so.

    You don't get to "upgrade" and keep your unlimited, period. Unless you pay full price which is not considered an upgrade.

    As for my Bionic, its still going very strong. I laugh when my extended battery Bionic is still well over 2/3 charge in the late afternoon when the Galaxy and iCrap guys are looking for chargers or going out to their cars to plug them in. I laugh when I'm outside at work and dude next to me with the AMOLED screen is struggling to see and I can see totally fine in the sun. I laugh when they tell me they paid $hundreds to upgrade and lost their unlimited data. I laugh when I whip out my lapdock in the break room, throw my phone in and get ppl looking at me like "why the hell can't my $300 subsidized ridiculous phone have that?" as I cruise around the interwebs. Finally I laugh on business trips when I rip off a 3 Gig movie to watch that evening and they lost their unlimited when they had to upgrade to the latest/greatest.

    There is plenty of reason to still love the Bionic, I see no reason to upgrade at all until mine starts getting glitchy and becoming unusable. Knocking on wood, its still going like a champ. I got it on the evilbays less than a year ago practically brand new and only used for a few months without a scratch on it. My OG Droid lasted forever and my Dad still uses my original DX that I got in 2010 and its still going strong too. Maybe I'll be the last Bionic user in 2015? Will be the case if it lasts that long.

    Nice feedback everyone. My bionic dares me to use it everyday! Of is glitchy, lagy and some days just not that functional. I so want to take a sledge hammer to it! Master clean pops up multiple times a day saying that memory is 90% used.
    As for a replacement, I am not a fan of the big screen phones. Gs4,etc... any suggestions on options?
