Discussion in 'Motorola Droid Bionic' started by wicked, Sep 8, 2011.
I feel sorry for people who live on the west coast at times like this <g>
On the bright side, it's still 4:35am, they are probably still in bed.
I can renew my contract end of this month, which I will do to get a new phone most likely since my D1 is limping along. I hope the Bionic is a great phone because I have been wanting it for a long time. I am glad though that the phone will be out for a few weeks before I can get it so if any issues come with it, I can reconsider my options or hopefully they will have them fixed.
I don't see many problems though. They have only had an additional 6 months to work on the phone and work out the kinks with it.....ROFL:blink:
On your marks... get set .....
Sitting outside the store now, only other cars are the employees. I hope my drooling out the window of my car isn't scaring them...

Just got home with mine. So far it is awesome and extremely fast.
I got company with me now. And one more showing up as I am typing
Wow could i be one of the firsts to get it? My store which was supposed to open at 9 had the doors open at 8:30. Walked in, played with the demo for a few minutes, and made my purchase. Battery went from 50% at the store to 15% during my 40 minute drive to work lol. Was downloading all my apps at the time to.
Very impressed with 4G. In my office i barely had 1-2 3G bars but with the bionic i have 3 bars 4G (speedtest read 10mbps down).
What kinda pics are you looking for. I've got my Droid X here so i can snap some and upload.
EDIT- more info
+ app download/ installation speed. All of the apps i've tried to get download AND install in less than 10 seconds
+ Size of the phone. While not as narrow as my droid X, its not as thick as i thought it would be and i like the dark chrome bezel a lot more than i thought i would.
+ Apps load INSTANTLY, even camera and camcorder
+ Quadrant 2560 with apps downloading in the background. My OC'd 1.4ghz droid X never sniffed 2000
- Screen is a step down from my Droid X in my opinion. It's just not as bright and clear.
- Phone still gets freakin HOT while multitasking.
Anyone know if Best Buy will have them in store today?
I was the first one to get it at the store I went to. Only problem is getting the 4g sim card to activate. I went ahead and left with the phone with no activation. He told me to call back at 10:30 if it doesn't work by then. He said it was a similiar problem when the thunderbolt came out.

Yea i waited about 30 minutes for the phone to activate in store. He said expect that today with all the new activations.
The tried to stick it into another 4g phone maybe a thunderbolt to activate it but he mentioned something about their activation system is down are something. When I call back he may have more info from other stores or from his corporate email.
Picked up my loot today, and to my surprise, Verizon gave it to me at the upgrade price. Makes NO sense. My upgrade date was October of next year, yet they gave it to me at the upgrade price AND my contract end date is now 2 years from TODAY. We double, tripled, and double double checked everything with the store manager even, and it's legit. No idea why, but not going to argue.
So, I walked out with the phone, case, LapDock and Car Dock all for the same price I was expecting to pay for the phone alone.
They told me that the system was going a little slow today activating heo 4G but they got it working for me. I was in and out in 25 mins.
got mine activated without issue. a little disappointed with the pentile screen, but I can live with it!
Take it out in direct sunlight and then tell us if you're disappointed with the screen
Congrats on the Bionics. Anyone want to do me a favor and let me know if the Bionic fits the Atric lapdock or do you have to get the Bionic version (please tell me that you actually went and tried, not just a guess)?
What do you mean by "pentile screen"?
