    Just got off the Verizon website & they are offering certified (pre-owned) bionics for $79. I have a $50 NE2 that would bring the price down to $29. Should I take the plunge with a pre-owned device & be stuck for another 2 years? Or spend the $149 for brand new & be stuck for 2 years?

    Btw: for a brief moment the Verizon website was showing the razr & gnex for $249 but they fixed it & is now back to $299.

    Those are the only two choices? That's like asking should I kiss my older sister or should I kiss my oldest sister? ;)

    Neither does anything for me. :D

    Well here I am getting ready for my Nexus and now this is in my face. I might just stop screwing around and get a super cheap Bionic. It really is a win win.

    So your NE2 is only worth $79-$149 to you? Tsk...Tsk...Tsk...

    Don't use your upgrade, instead buy a Bionic off ebay for $300 or less....they're out there all the time...

    Then use your NE2 on a newly released device that starts at $199 example would be the iphone 4s, newly released devices go for $675-$800 on ebay, they'll take their fee, paypal will take it's fee you'll spend $10 shipping & insuring it and that will not only pay for your Bionic but net you up to $300 to go play with....

    I don't care how rich you are, unless your name is Bill Gates you should want to nab an easy $300 and get the device you want at the same time....

    I've bought my last 4-5 phones off of Craigslist, including my Bionic. I've had great luck and I AM NOT locked into another 2 year contract! :)

    This is actually quite true. Except u didn't mention ( or weren't aware) that verizon now charges you the difference of the retail price, and wtver u paid, subsequentially charging u full price for the fone, if u dont activate purchased fone on the OWNERS account.
    HERES THE KICKER!!!!!!
    The automated message that told me this, as I signed a second plan this morning( bought another bionic for my wife. Converted her from metro!!!) SPECIFICALLY said this charge will incur if you dont ACTIVATE THE FONE WITHIN 6 DAYS(80% positive it was 6), who's to say u dont deactivate, THEN sell?

    I know for sure verizon will now charge u for not activating your new phone on the new-signed contract.

    fyi
