    Just read on Gottabemobile.com that VZW has signed up for the HTC One, and will be dropping the DNA. Watch for drastic price drops on DNA.
    Wirefly has it for 75% off, Dell for $69.
    Smart move Big Red!

    Please provide a valid source that states Verizon will actually be dropping the DNA. I have searched and found nothing that validates that. All I have found is that Verizon MAY be getting the One anywhere from 2-4 months from now. If and when that happens then the DNA should still be sold but at a lower price point. Also, Verizon may call it the One or something else like DNA2. All of this is totally normal in the Android phone market. Right now is a good time to buy the DNA since it can be bought for less than $100 on some sites.

    Thank you for the link. I couldn't find that when I was searching gottabemobile's site. Keep in mind that it only says WalMart might replace the DNA with the One, not that Verizon will. The title to this thread is misleading. Even if Verizon gets the One it should still carry the DNA for a while. Wal Mart is known for carrying a very limited # of phones, far fewer than Verizon or Best Buy for example. Which would explain why WalMart would choose between carrying the One over the DNA.

    The above link from VZW web site confirms the One, and all you have to do is shop for the DNA on web, with up to 75% off, its days r numbered.

    Is there any newER news yet on the One (or a variant) for VZW? I have an upgrade coming in May, and am seriously looking at the DNA or the RAZR MAXX HD.

    Sure would like to see into the future a bit, know what's coming between now and then.

    Every time I use my wife's DNA, i go back to my Razr and hate my phone, lol. I'm trying to hold out until summer for an upgrade, but it's tough. The Razr is working ok, minus the horrible battery life. Moto X has me interested, but it's all rumors right now, so...meh.

    For the cheap price people can scoop up a DNA for, it's a great phone. I can't get over how smooth it is compared to my Razr, even with the JB update. Guess that quad core helps though. :p

    The next wave of phones, it appears, will be quad processors. You can get that now with the DNA, or Galaxy Note today. If you wait, you will have the choice of the Galaxy S4 or the HTC One (or Verizon's version) very soon. Probably a quad from Motorola soon enough. If you buy a quad today, or wait, you will be buying at the higher end of the technology curve giving you more performance over your contact term. You can get the DNA from multiple sources for a good price (Dell had it for $69). The new quads will have a premium price point. I love my DNA now; but I will also lust after the new specs of these newer quads too, lol! I have an upgrade in my back pocket if my lust overcomes me.
