    I'm just stock rooted since launch week and I am very happy with the Bionic. Sure there are a few minor issues but they mostly seem to get cleaned up with ICS. I can't see myself spending the money or bother to do anything for at least the next year.

    once I went to .232 I honestly think all of my problems have been solved. Everything is fluid, fast. The lapdock is what i have always wanted it to be. If moto pushes an OTA soon, I think I might even stay on .232. It's that good and my phone is as fast as any others I have seen. I was fed up with this release schedule but decided to try to take the plunge first and see where it got me before deciding if I needed to switch to another phone. At this point, there is no need.

    I love my Bionic. I will have it for quite a while I'm sure. Between the extended battery, ICS coming, and just being fast as heck, I don't see what more a newer phone could offer me besides JB which I could care less about, and it seems like for every good thing you gain on a newer phone, you get more bad things and bugs to put up with. I figure by the end of 2013 they will have phones out that blow the bionic away and then maybe it will be worth upgrading.

    But my biggest thing is that I am on unlimited data, and I cannot renew my contract with Verizon and keep my unlimited data without switching to family shared plan, so my next phone will have to be purchased/won outright. Due to lack of cash, Bionic it will be for a while, but I don't mind.

    Not losing me. I bought this phone just before VZW was going to do away with the unlimited data. So no upgrading here.

    I'm keeping mine until my two years are up (got mine shortly after it came out). I'm stock and just waiting for ICS, but even as it is the phone has been just fine. I'll be curious to see what the phone landscape looks like when I get to upgrade late next spring. The bigger question is what the phone plans are going to be like and how the data plans look.

    My journey with my Bionic started a little rough. But the data drops cleared up and then I upgraded to .238 and have been very happy ever since. I am not actively looking for a phone. I know being a tech geek, something will get me in the future but for now I am happy.

    I plan on keeping this phone for a while.. I've had a D2 for the last 2 years, and was dreading upgrading & losing my unlimited data until I was GIVEN a perfect Bionic. Currently running the .232 leak & as I type, my extended battery is at 16 hrs & is at 40%. With the removable battery and relatively cheap accessories (since they're all on clearance at VZ). I see no need to change for a long time.

    Yes eventually we'll all want something different but for now we are content with what we got. Kind of like going through different women.
