I am currently rocking the DX. You guys think I should use my upgrade on the D3, or should I wait on something else. The slide out keyboard is something I really want to have.
cuz he has a droidx why upgrade now? its a menial upgrade, next years should be EPICAndroidSims said:Why not get it then just resell it on eBay later if you don't want it? I just burned my early upgrade on a Droid 3 and I'm happy about the decision. I'll have it Wednesday.
@ericerk: That's a whole year away at least, why wait if he can upgrade now?
Its a pretty big upgrade. 1080p recording, front facing camera, superior dual core processor, 5 row hardware keyboard. Next year it should still be worth $250 or so on eBay. Sell it and pay the difference on a new phone. It's like getting it for contract pricing.ericerk said:cuz he has a droidx why upgrade now? its a menial upgrade, next years should be EPIC
Primary accounts get (or... used to get, but you get to do it one last time if you bought your phone before they changed it) an annual upgrade. You can upgrade with discounted pricing but just not with the extra $50 or whatever off.pizzlewizzle said:I bought a DX the day it came out...how are you already up for an upgrade??unless you bought a used one...I still have a lil less than a year left...i'd hold out for the bionic but that's just me
Basically free, til you get arrested and go to jail over a phone!AndroidSims said:Its a pretty big upgrade. 1080p recording, front facing camera, superior dual core processor, 5 row hardware keyboard.

EDIT: Also has DDR2 RAM.
I have the insurance on my phone, covers theft. When the time comes to upgrade I'll make a claim, sell the phone with a Bad esn, buy an upgrade then sell my replacement. It'll practically be free... if a little unethical.

There is a $100 deductible and it's $5.18 a month. Basically just getting my money back in one lump sum. Also, carriers charge us an arm and a leg off contract for a new device. So I don't really give a damn.Kickasz23 said:unethical??? lol its called insurance fraud jackass!
Done talking about this. Stay on topic please.aczaplicki said:Basically free, til you get arrested and go to jail over a phone!
Tapped from my Bolt.
I'm confident that the Droid 3 will have a good following. All in all for $199, it's a very solid device.I'll let you know how I feel about it tomorrow when I have it in my hands.adamooo said:Different spin on the question - bought a DInc2 from a VZW store ten days ago to latch in the unlimited data plan. Droid3 will be in-store just in time for me to trade in the DInc2 if I want to ($35 fee plus price difference of $50?). I see the spec differences (qHD, dual-core, phy kbd ; front camera not as good) - but for those who have touched a D3 how impressive is it? Should I take a chance on a change?
- I wanted LTE but I don't want a 4.3" display in my pocket and don't want to have to charge twice a day. Will think about an upgrade late this year / early next.
- I don't care that much about the physical keyboard, but for 0.02" additional thickness I'll take it.
- I know some don't like Sense but I kinda do.
- I have a tablet to play with rooting, alt ROMs, etc so I don't HAVE to do that to my everyday phone ;-). (Nook Color woo!)
- DInc2 already has root, recovery, CM7, etc in public - I haven't applied until I decide whether I'm keeping it.
