    Ok it's time to upgrade my phone because my droid 1 is finally crapping out on me.

    I need a new Verizon droid.

    Which one should I get?

    Should I wait for a newer model coming out soon?

    What do you guys think?

    I would either get the tbolt or wait. Mostly depends on what you want in a phone and if you do custom roms or not.

    I would wait for the bionic..even if u do custom rims it def does not take long for them to come out and many ppl think hat the tbomt will be the shortest lived phone out there

    bionic is not coming out. im in the same boat as OP. The bionic was scrapped and now the next phone worth waiting for is the moto targa. It will be LTE and dual core now.

    my droid 1 stopped working this week on me. the buttons on the bottom quit on me and could not navigate the phone at all.

    I read that the new droids are gonna have a locked bootloader though is this true? No more rooting?

    Only problem with moto phones is how locked they are. They're a nightmare is you want true customization. The Targa looks pretty beast though. I would consider picking it up if they unlocked it and it had a keyboard.

    I don't see anywhere else on the web that the bionic is scrapped.

    Also are there any reasons you think the Thunderbolt won't last?

    The specs look real good
