    Just wondering who is doing what. If you are getting it day one why are you and if you wait why are you? This is ment for if you are actually getting it so bionic haters stay away.

    Same boat as bigkhan. Waiting to see if there is a price drop as well as what kind of reviews are given about the phone. If some concrete details about the DHD or Prime come out while I'm waiting and are enough to make me jump ship, so be it! haha

    Some days I plan on getting it day one, some days I dont...lol.

    Money issues is also causing me to go back n forth. I should be able to get some new phone this year. Wasnt looking that way a few weeks ago. I'm not gonna lie....info about phones coming later this year has me going back n forth too, the Droid HD and Prime. I might just buy all 3 to make it simple...LOL!!!

    No hurry here. My OG Droid is still rooted and running fine.
    I'm waiting for the HD and Prime. Then I'll compare the three.
    I figure when these and the iPhone come out, we will see a big price drop on the Bionic.

    If Costco has it, I will probably get it day 1 or 2. If not, I'll wait a few weeks until they do (and perhaps more info on Nexus).

    Not sure. Depends on that Costco deal and if my family switches to Sprint. But the way it's looking, I'll probably wait a week or two and see what's up.

    Same... Im gonna give it some time, see what happens with the prime. Either way, whatever anyone chooses, I am sure they are gonna get a decent device. The Prime has also sparked my interest but I like Motorola... tough choices ahead.

    Have decided to wait it out. At least 2-3 weeks for the price drop and hopefully we'll know if the Prime will be coming to Verizon or not. Will make the decision a much easier one being cheaper and knowing more about near-future phones.

    My original Droid is literally as perfect as day one, so can't complain really.

    Unfortunatly I can't wait. I'm trying to decide if I'll preorder or go to the store. My D1 touchscreen quit working on the 25th, so rather than spend money to get a refurb I'm just gonna wait and get the Bionic.

    I was a day one buy until yesterday, where it has become more likely we'll see ICS(possibly labeled nexus, maybe not) premiere on Verizon. I really like the way the Bionic is looking, if it would have come out in July, day one for sure, but now, I think I'll wait.

    I was a day one purchaser...until the news about the Prime came out. Now I'll wait a few weeks to see if Samsung and Verizon announce a timetable for that device. I know most people on this board swear by the Moto build, but I've personally had a lousy experience. Dialer stopped working out of nowhere, occasionally sound on phone calls drops and requires reboot, sounds profiles change without warning, etc. On top of that, the bloatware on my Droid Pro is killing me. If the Prime is coming in October I will probably wait until then and give the Samsung product a chance.

    I will be waiting for the Vigor or Prime. Knowing they will probably come out in September or October I don't see a reason why not to wait.

    I'll probably preorder it. Then I'll go to the verizon store day one and get it. Then when Costco gets it I'll get it so I an get the bundle. Then I'll get it on Wireflly when it the price drops to $149

    I will probably wait too, both for the price drop and the new devices.
    Don't you guys think that the Bionic would eventually get upgraded to ICS?

    I'll be in-line day one to buy one. I've had my OG and he's been a real trooper, but his age is showing unfortunately. I do hope Costco has them day 1, their deal is awesome, but I hope BJ's (my wholesaler of choice) has a similar deal on it.
