    Pre order through her, then she'll get the 25$ in her bucket.

    Woo!! $200 for this beast is a steal!

    Does anyone know if the VZ version can be rooted? I know the UK one has already been rooted and has an unlocked bootloader.

    I'm going to talk to her, I think I'd rather have the note but haven't seen a real one. I also don't want to miss out on one of these two phones before the end of unlimited. I wonder if I can preorder then not take it if they come out with the note, though that is looking unlikely.

    Even if it does run fairly efficiently, the battery life will not touch the battery life on the MAXX. I'd love to see Samsung come out with an extended battery that gets it closer to the MAXX though.

    If this has GSM functionality enabled out of the box, along with decent battery life, I might just consider selling my RAZR MAXX and picking this up...

    ...maybe.

    Contract renewals will go to Tiered Data plans, by the time this phone comes out Verizon will have the Tiered data packages full go, they said this Summer, well June is Summer.

    If we pre-order it though, wouldn't we get in before the grandfathered goes away? They haven't even officially announced it. Last year, they set a date and gave us like a good full months notice, so I think VZ will do the same again this time.

    this is not what I want to hear. What's the possibility that Verizon is trying to pull a fast one with the release date & starting tiered data packages? I still have two lines that are still on 3G and have absolutely no idea what to do right now.

    I'm pretty sure when we preorder the phone come June 6th that we would be renewing our contract at that time too, right? (correct me if I'm wrong, I've never preordered a phone before)

    If that is true, we'd be able to keep our unlimited plan.

    They said towards the end of summer if memory serves.

    This phone and the next moto release will both be safe from the tiered data slam... call it a hunch. Of.course I could be wrong... it happened once :D

    I will pay full retail and recoup my $$$ from my Razr Maxx when I sell it. I love the display on this thing and it should be a stellar device!!

    If you havent checked the preorder page check that and click the coverage map for each carrier I found it pretty amusing.

    New contract starts when the phone is activated. Not when it's ordered.

    I called verizon yesterdsy to see about an extra early upgrade for when the sg3 launched. She told me that I would definitely be able to keep my grandfathered unlimited data plan with the upgrade.
