    Since I found out about the GS3 bootloader, I've been considering returning my S3 or exchanging it for Galaxy Nexus. Is it silly to get one now though? The phone is 9 months old, and Google is supposed to release a couple more Nexus devices coming up soon, right? But we haven't heard much rumors about the new Nexuses, it's been all about the Nexus 7. So I wonder if the next Nexus device will take longer to come out than expected. I also was toying around with the idea of waiting til next May when my contract expires and going with a GSM Nexus since they are so reasonably priced. However, Google didn't start off by sellling the GSM GNex so cheap, right?

    I personally would wait or buy a used one on eBay or Craigslist. Since you will probably want to drop the big money on the newer, and allegedly greater selection, of Nexus devices. November isn't so far away.

    Agree completely. I love my Nexus, but with the new Nexus about to drop (crossing fingers Verizon gets one), I think it's best to avoid any kind of upgrade that locks you into a 2 year contract. Buying used or simply waiting will allow you to see how the next Nexus fairs. If Verizon doesn't get it, no harm no foul.

    Personally, I'd wait until your contract is up and leave Verizon for a GSM carrier. Verizon is slowly trying to cripple the Verizon modding community. I'm leaving when my contract is up, which can't come soon enough.

    <-- now with T-Mobile, and besides the LTE speeds, I miss nothing, especially not the bill.
