    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.

    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
