    I have seen the S4 as high as $249 for a 16-GB at Beast Buy and as low as $199 for a 16-GB ($249 for 32 GB) at VZW's store.

    As for the S5, I do not plan to wait for that as I am not wanting to have to wait for bugs to be fixed like I did with the Bionic. I have been called a guinea, and I have been called a pig, but I do not want to be a guinea pig. ;)

    Looks like the S4 is a generally safe bet. :)

    How about your local Walmart for $138? Or Wirefly for $119-$179? Or Amazon for $119-149?

    They (Carriers) are going to make their money some way or other. If you pay more for the service and less for the phone, they will continue to make money off you in the long run.
    The T-Mobile deal looks good because 2 years from now, my bill will be $21/month less than it is today. And the T-Mobile S4 bill will be lower than my current Verizon DroidX bill :)

    Upgraded from a Bionic a few months ago and I have had no regrets. I lost my unlimited data plan (went to 2 gig). Been fine. Just need to make sure you use wifi for data intensive stuff like streaming video, or, downloading movies... I tend to shut mobile data off as it is handy to do. Use it when I need it and it helps the battery a bit when it is off. Good luck!

    $420 on Swappa for a 3 week old device.
    Asurion and Verizon have open enrollment.
    Still have unlimited.

    I also upgraded from the Bionic, but it was last month. No regrets, but was surprised that things like the slide unlock (right to unlock, left for camera, up for phone and down to text) or the Favorites widget were Motorola, and not ICS (or JB). What I don't miss was the long startup. Even new, the OG Droid and the Bionic had that red eye first and then booted up after a minute or so. The S4 takes seconds to boot up.

    The Bionic was a good phone for me and if I had done the needed factory reset (and gotten a new external battery) it could've served me longer. I also lost my unlimited, but as my average was 1.5 GB that isn't that bad. Now the cap is 6 GB, but the company I work for is paying my phone bill.
