1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Was rockin my OG Droid earlier today on my way to lunch when I get a text from Verizon saying 'be one of the first to own a new HTC Thunderbolt'... Well that was interesting, cause as far as I knew I wasn't due for an upgrade until August. So I headed over to the local VZW store to see what was up. Well wouldn't you know, I was eligible for an early upgrade. Having decided, alright... might as well, I went ahead and started to purchase... Guy looks up from the computer and tells me "oh, your company gives a nice discount for this... that'll only be $189"

    WOW. I couldn't believe it. I was floored. And I keep the EXACT same plan I had before (4G & 3G are the same price right now... and I'm grandfathered if/when the tiers come into play). Helloooo unlimited 4G data for only $80 a month total!

    Your discount has me beat. I went with a 1 year for $229 and can upgrade again in November of this year.

    My wife has an upgrade. I tried to steal it from her but she wouldn't let me do it. I told her I was giving her an upgrade by giving her me D2 but she said that was a hand me down!:icon_evil:

    Soooo, I'm not letting her get the TB. I want to wait to see what else comes out. But just the thought of her walking around with a better phone then me is not fair. She had the best phone all the time when she had a blackberry and I had a dumb phone. Looks like my 2 year reign as phone king is ending. :(

    :( My wife is the primary (she had Verizon before we met and I was using prepaid T-Mobile then) and she isn't eligible for an early upgrade for 2 more months... The contract on my Droid didn't end until next May... so I just added a new line... FTW. That said... I saved a boatload on car insurance with Geico :D lol

    Ahh man, thats rough...

    But as I said, I had no intentions of replacing my Droid when I woke up yesterday. Yes, the phone was ridiculously laggy, and even though I overclocked it to 1.1Ghz, it still was having issues keeping up. But both internal and external memory was very close to maxxed out, and if I wanted to play music, I would have to battery pull later that day.

    However, once I got that message, it was a no-brainer, especially when I realized I would be grandfathered into 2 years of unlimited 4G for $30/m (less when you include the discount). With all the fears of the tiered data coming, I had to pull the trigger. And this thing has so much friggin memory (a useable 30GB on the external memory card, 3GB of usable internal memory (compared to ~260MB on the Droid!!!!!)) that I cannot see myself needing another phone in the next 2 years. Especially with it having already been rooted by the wonderful people on here, and already overclocked to 2.0Ghz.

    Moto tried their best, but the T-Bolt is the true OG Droid replacement. The thing kicks the llama's arse!
