    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.

    Is a Samsung Rogue considered a smartphone or can I get an unlimited plan with that phone to be grandfathered in?

    I think it's a feature phone. If you want a cheap smartphone, get one off ebay or craigslist.

    The rogue is not, thats actually the phone that I just upgraded from so it will not get you grandfathered in unfortunately. It is considered a feature phone

    No, I bought a used Droid off Craigslist and just swapped my phone through Verizon, my upgrade is still available through Verizon, which will extend my contract for 2 years when I get the Bionic.

    Later, I'll just sell this Droid, got it for $75 and I can probably sell it for $100 lol its actually in decent condition.

    EDIT

    Just checked My Verizon just to be sure that the upgrade was still available and it is. Freaked me out for a second though cuz the line with the Droid on it says it isn't, but then I remember that I had Verizon use 'my' upgrade to get the wife an iPhone a couple months ago, so checking her line the upgrade is still available lol.

    Just wondering, I'm an existing customer on Verizon and will be moving from a Black Berry Storm 1 (9530) to a Droid Bionic but would everyone consider a Black Berry Strom 1 (9530) a smart phone or a featured phone with unlimited data feature? I'm leaning towards it's a smart phone but not too sure. hahaha...

    BB Storm is listed as a Smartphone on the Verizon site.

    The big question is whether BB counts if you buy a Bionic when it comes out. I think I heard that if you switch to or from a BB, you lose your unlimited data.
