    Do you think Verizon will still be offering unlimited LTE data when I'm elligable for an upgrade? I'm not elligable until August 25th. :(

    The Bionic should surely be out by then, no?

    You've just asked two questions noone but verizon/moto can answer. They are being VERY tight lipped about both the Bionic release date and when exactly the 4g plan goes tiered.

    No idea when the Bionic will come out, but I'm not expecting it to til late summer/early fall.

    What I am definitely expecting is for VZW to tier the data right before it releases any dual core/LTE phone.

    Originally I wanted the Bionic, but then I stopped reading specs and started playing with a Droid Charge. Coming from a D1, it is quite an upgrade.

    Yes, don't settle. Wait for the right phone. This one is perfect for me.

    Don't be fooled, that tiered data pricing is coming sooner than you think (June/early July) and when it does you'll regret not getting a 4g device on unlimited data when it switches without warning

    Crankintopwater69 if I were you I would hold out.. Although the TB is a good phone it is garbage compared to the GS2 and the Bionic. If you want to settle for a phone and 4G does not matter get the DX2. The DX2 has been running better then the TB and put up better Benchmarks if benchmarks is what you follow. I do not think you will be disappointed in the Bionic/Targa, the GS2 or even the Droid 3.

    Haha, my coworker and i have been having this same discussion all day. He doesn't need 4g he says, but I would like to have it. I want my next phone to have NFC though.

    I'm hoping an NFC, 4g capable phone comes out THAT I LIKE before the tiered data starts.

    Just don't wait too long, bionic *may* be a superior spec phone, but benchmarks are just that, theoretical benchmarks in a controlled environment; what's at stake here is the unmistakable increase in data cost and reduced peace of mind tiered data pricing induces. Make no mistake tbolt is gonna get outdated soon, batt life in future phones are still going to suck, especially with stock phones, but that unlimited data won't be around for much longer, beware! ><

    From what I have researched summer time is when the data tiers begin,unsure if its 3g & 4g.here what needs to be considered the feat or the device.i would feel crippled without unlimited data and would rather have it oppose to waiting for device hence I have the TB but awaiting SGS2.about ur upgrade if u have great PMT history u may be able to upgrade a Mon before. if of course unlimited data is still around by 6/25...
