I'm ready to order the Bionic and a Dock for it.

Tell me when...

By the way, I was on the Verizon site and to get an extra power cord for the smartphones they were charging $29.99... how can that be right?

Because you never ever ever buy accessories directly from Verizon... bought mine for the D1 from monoprice.com, best place I have found for HDMI, USB, VGA, Cat, and Coax cables... oh and TV wall mounts are dirt cheap there, too.

Practically all phones out now use microusb. It's a universal standard I believe so I would go with that.

Except for one annoying phone that will go unnamed. ;-)

+1

Also Amazon is a great place too. I bought an extra battery and a charging kit which came with a micro usb and car charger for $10.

as long as you're upgrade eligible, you don't pay full retail.

And Never Ever-Ever-EVER try to by an SD or MicroSD card at a Verizon store, they charge you almost double what you can get it for at Fry's Electrionics, CompUSA/TigerDirect, etc.
I had to tell a lady in the store there one time that she was about to get ripped off. :icon_eek:

Thanks! But what I meant was do you just put down a deposit for preorder or the whole total (which depends on contract status?)

Exactly, I am an amazon junkie, can't beat amazon prime shipping.

Its the same thing with hdmi, best but practically rapes you with $80 price tags, that you can get on monoprice for a tenth of the price.

When you go into Verizon website you can choose upgrade and the price will populate as $299.99.

So all chargers run on the same current? You can use anything from amazon that's micro-usb?

Can you use the Droid's charger on the Bionic?

I use Prime also - it's a great deal. Love Amazon stuff.... but I wouldn't want to hurt my Bionic with the wrong charger. So is do all chargers use the same current?
