    I will be in Costco in 20 minutes. My OG Droid is finished. I'm eligible for the upgrade.

    I've read nearly every thread here and elsewhere and I'm hung up only on the data drop issue.

    So, do I do this Bionic thing or not?

    Sure. They have a very good return policy. Be sure to check into that. My kid bro loves his Bionic and it is slated to get ICS.

    Don't do it! Use RSDLite and flash your phone with a stock SBF file. That's helped a lot of people who thought their D1s were failing!

    I love my Bionic. Sure there were some issues here and there, bit what phone doesn't have issues at first? After rooting and getting the .893 upgrade leak, my Bionic runs fantastic with no issues.

    Whatever you do, don't get on here to make yourself feel better about whatever decision you make - there are too many differing, dogmatic opinions! :)

    Do it! I love my Bionic. I upgraded from my D1 which I gave to my wife.

    I did use your advice from the other thread and it worked better, but I'm still missing texts and the phone isn't responding to some touch inputs. In fact I reflashed the sbf twice. This phone has had it.

    I'm okay with waiting for the update that's coming. If I do decide later to by the Nexus I'll give the Bionic to one of my kids.

    Heh. That's exactly what I'm doing. I'm gonna blame all y'all if I don't like it. ;)

    Well so far it's 5 for yes and one for no! I've had my DB for almost two months and I still love it every time I use it. Smooth and fast.

    Hey...like Nike, "just do it!"

    I went from my Droid 1 to a Droid-X and now have upgraded to the Bionic and have never looked back. I surely don't regret it either. I LOVE my Bionic!! With the speed and flexibility of the Bionic over your D1 I think you will really enjoy it too.
