    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!!

    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.

    Well this sucks. I just ordered a Galaxy Nexus through Amazon this weekend. I hope I'm not totally worked over and I can exchange it somehow.

    I spoke with a Verizon rep today and she said as long as you upgrade by July 1st, you'll be able to keep your grandfathered unlimited data plan. After July 1st, you'll have to purchase the phone at full price in order to keep unlimited data.
    She couldn't however tell me if the Samsung GS3 would be released by then.

    **tap'n**

    GS3....this phone might make me try Samsung one more time....lol.

    NEED more info about the next Moto phone!!! ASAP!! lol. I assume it will have different and updated LTE hardware than the G Nex? That alone says its worth a try for me.

    I am torn between the S3 and the Vanquish. I really like the car docks Moto has out since I use my DroidX for navigation in my service van. Anyone seen any car docks for the S3? I need to upgrade before the grandfathered plans expire.

    I just realized something.....my Rezound and G Nex let me down in the phone reception, overall call quality dept. Calls werent handled by 4G. Maybe 4G issues effected those phones and calls? Did anyone ever get a handle on what was the problem with the mic issues on the G Nex? I didnt have that problem on my Rezound and RAZR.

    Guess I'm just hoping for an all around better experience with this Samsung phone. I remember when the Droid 1 had that infamous mute issue. That resolved itself with either updates or newer batches and hasnt really came back in later Moto phones. So it is possible for manufactures to correct mistakes, issues with either software or hardware. Samsung also did when they went away from that dumb file system that caused many Galaxy S 1's to lag.

    We just need manufactures to learn from mistakes or be more proactive in correcting them.
