I figure that I don't really need 4G speed the way I use a phone, so why punish myself on battery life. I'm going to wait and see on 4G. I'm replacing my Blackberry Tour so any droid is going to seem pretty good. Then Amazon had an offer to upgrade my phone for $99 instead of the $199 that Verizon wanted in-store. That was enough of a price difference to steer me away from the 4G phones. Hopefully they fix the GPS/Compass bug quickly. Is there any point rooting/freezing bloatware before they release the new operating system, or would I just have to redo it all later? I can live with it for now. I'm technical enough to pull things like that off, but I'm not patient enough to stay on top of all of the methodology. I want to set the phone up and forget about it.
