    I say do it.. remember you got 30 day to return to BB, but only 14 days to cancel the new contract if things don't work out.. I am loving my TB and my buddy had an X and now can't put his TB down..

    I came from the OG Droid, but I agree that you should definitely go with the TB - it's fantastic and the lte speeds are crazy fast

    I came from a rooted Droid 1 and had initial reservations about not waiting for dual core. Now that I have the tb with root I have zero regrets. I also did a one year contract which will be perfect timing for when dual/quad core come into their own.

    Best buy sells it for 749. You must have gotten them to price match Verizon's price.

    This is one of the coolest posts and follow-ups I've ever seen.

    Congrats, dude. I'm truly happy for you.

    Don't let the battery spoil your fun. There are many cures for the battery life so don't listen to those folks. Enjoy the best phone on the market. :greendroid:

    You will love the phone. I could have traded mine today for a brand new Incredible (fantastic phone) and put $249.00 in my pocket. I couldn't bring myself to do it.

    My sales rep. took care of me with a better battery. I LOVE this phone.

    The phone is flat out awesome so far.

    So far I like it much better than my X.

    After two trips they matched the price. pissed me off though. I went across the parking lot and checked an authorized retailer just for giggles. turns out it was priced at 699. I went back and someone called and got a 599 price but they tried to keep it hush hush from me since I didn't know a place that charged 599. I get home and check this thread then verizon website 599. I go back to verizon and she gives me attitude and says I already had one price match but she will do it this time. I went off. I said you heard the guy say 599 you should have just honored it the first time. she snapped back its taken care of and walks off.

    Bottom line... I exchanged a xoom beyond the 14 day limit for full refund, then ended up getting the thunderbolt for $599. Despite the trouble well worth the effort.

    Thanks again for the assistance.
