So I broke my Droid a couple of weeks ago and I've been using a Blackberry Storm in anticipation of the Thunderbolt. My rage toward the BB grows by the day. Since it seems the TB is not going to happen any time soon, can someone tell me if this would work? We are on a two-person family plan. My husband has no want or need of a smartphone. Can I use my early upgrade now to get a Droid X or D2 or something, and then when his line is available for an upgrade, get a better phone at that time for my line, and remove whatever one I purchased using the early upgrade? In other words, would I be locked into a data plan for both lines that way, or could we revert back to a plain old phone for him after we use his upgrade? If I knew something good would be coming out soon I would just live with it, but I never thought the BB would be a long-term solution. I hate it with the heat of 1000 suns. My other thought is to find something on ebay but I don't want to spend $300 on a used phone only to turn around and spend another $300 in a month or two. BTW, Verizon's trade-in program will give a whopping $8 for the Storm, $5 less than what they will give for the broken Droid.
