    There has been a rumor on another Forum by this guy that work at Best Buy!!!

    Here is what he said:
    When asked about Owning a 3G phone now, and "Upgrading" to a 4g Device after 7/7??
    This was his reply:
    Take it for what it is worth.. If he post Pictures I will post it here.

    I hope that's the case! I'm tired of spending 3 hours of my day on average checking these sites about info on a phone I've wanted for what seems like ever. My rooted Droid 1 that's over clocked to stop the terrible lag just needs to be put to rest. My impatience has me going to sprint to play with the evo 3d but my intelligence keeps me from switching to them. I don't know how much longer I can take this agony.

    my buddy is on sprint and got the 3D the day it came out. I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty freaking sweet. HTC did really well with Sense. The network and maintenance for Sprint however, leaves a lot to be desired. He was complaining about the 3G speeds (Sprint is way behind VZW in 4g implementation here) and that they've had tickets open for faulty towers for months..etc..

    Interestingly and not related, we both ran Quadrant Standard side by side. My D2 scored 1951, and his 3D only scored a 2049 or something close to it. dancedroid

    Well I guess those of us who've already jumped on 4g don't benefit too much from this. Unfortunately, this also means that 4g phones will stay up in price. That will probably push some customers to get another 3g phone instead of moving to 4g. Most people won't even realize what they are losing, they just know they're getting a phone for alot cheaper.

    like I said on that other forum preach was refering to. I was able to confirm with a CSR today that the information I received last week that prompted me to jump on a Charge was false and I do NOT have to be on a 4G by 7/7 to be able to use my upgrade and retain unlimited since I already had 3G Unlimited. SO because of this my Charge goes back to the store thursday when I go do my wifes upgrade (she isn't waiting for bionic, just wants a Xperia Play) and I reinitialize my Storm 2 to wait out the last month for Bionic. Funny thing the CSR I talked to this week kept apologizing for what last weeks CSR told me and prompting me to buy a $300 phone + accessories.

    Here is what he said:
    I also heard this. Well not an exact date but a rep for Verizon/friend said the middle of July, however, they were talking about pushing it sooner because of all the negative publicity for the Bionic and because they don't want Bionic sales to be effected if the D3 is highly successful. Which means they want more time in between the releases, hence the earlier D3 release and the Bionic is very close to being completed. Then he started telling me about the conspiracy that Motorola wanted to release a little before even news came out about an iphone 5 release date and that is what they were waiting for, upgrading the Bionic in the process. It made sense to me because companies have released "unfinished" phones before like the Thunderbolt but can easily be fixed via upgrading the software and not the hardware.

    Sounds feasible

    It seems like "the 14th and a couple weeks after" could be true. If you look at all the release dates, they are all on Thursdays. But then again, this could be my own wishful thinking b/c my Droid 2 is on its last leg.

    Yeah I actually married a gamer chick. I refined some of her gaming tastes but she is one either way :)

    Back onto bionic all of this talk is making me excited all over again and I will probably be returning my Charge today instead of tomorrow. Looks like a lot of different sources are starting to speak out about a release next month. Has me salivating at the mouth. These last 6 months have been a nightmare but will be worth it in the end.

    I've been waiting on this darn bionic for sometime. I finally had to just jump ship from ATT and chose the Charge since Costco had it onsale for 179.99. Perhaps I should have just picked up an Inc2 instead.
