You can buy a Samsung S3 dirt cheap. Probably get a cheap S4 when the new models hit too.

I know I don't have extra stuff running. It would surprise me at all if I got the one defective phone out of the bunch with my luck. So I take it yours doesn't drain at all over night or whatever when you aren't using it? I thought that seemed REALLY odd.

Default Re: Verizon Phones

F verizon!!!!!!! I had their service for 12 years and gave them about 20 grand and they wouldnt even work with me when I moved back here to Korea. I just wanted my number and plan held for one year. Both my wife and I. She had them for about as long as me. They only do it for military and wanted to me to submit paperwork and call every three months to which I agreed. Then those a-holes sent me bills and charged me every month and even sent me to collections (I had no idea anything was even going on since I am out of the country). It was a nightmare and they ended up giving my number away that I have had forever.

Verizon will NEVER see another dime from me or my family. Good riddance to their rates and headaches.

What I don't get is why you can't buy any used phones on the after market? I mean anytime you search to buy phones its always tied in to full price OR a contract?

Default Re: Verizon Phones

All Droids are made by Motorola, right? Personally, I haven't had great experience with Motorola phones. I had a Motorola Hint (just a basic phone from 2008/09) with Alltel (later Verizon). Eventually it wouldn't recognize the factory charger and would give me an "invalid charger" message. I would be lucky if it charged any after leaving it plugged up all night.

I also had a Motorola Triumph (Android) on Virgin Mobile. It was a good phone, but some of the web apps were very slow, the internal memory (which was small to begin with, only 2GB) filled up with files the system put there, and I kept having to reset the phone. The headphone jack also messed up, so the phone thought there were headphones in at random times, and I couldn't make calls.

Maybe they have all of their stuff figured out by now, but I just wanted to share my experience.

I have the Galaxy S3 now. The battery life on it is excellent for a smart phone. It will last 12 hours or so with heavy use (hours of using the internet and apps), and even longer with moderate or light use.

thats not a realistic expectation, thats a $400 phone (cash price/no contract to offset it) new. They are selling on ebay used for $250 and up. Even the last gen (S3) is still going for $200 or so used...that being said, keep an eye on craigslist, sometimes people need some quick cash.

if you are handy with that sort of thing, you could prob pick up one with a busted screen cheap thru your local craigslist and then repair it...but you take the risk that thats not the only issue with it

I don't think you'll be finding that anywhere, anytime soon.....

heck people can sell a used one to www.gazelle.com/ and get like $150 for it, so why would they sell it to anyone for $50

I didn't mean all Android phones. I meant all of the phones that the model name is 'Droid', like the Droid, Droid X, Droid RAZR, etc. I think all of the phones on the 'Droid' line are Motorola.

Default Re: Verizon Phones

2 things.

1. Although the service area for Verizon is awesome, their rates are through the roof & you have to pay for data

2. I have been with Sprint & got grandfathered into the 100% unlimited data, but I can say the service really does suck. Been asking for years when they will have the 4G available & they just keep saying it is coming soon.

Oh & 3, I am using an Iphone 4s so far best phone I have ever had & I have had many many droid phones

Default Re: Verizon Phones

Switched to Verizon from AT&T due to coverage issues.

I have an iPhone 5 as my company phone, but my personal phone is the S3. I will have to say that I don't even use the iPhone 5. It sits on my counter at home and I just forward the calls to my S3. In my opinion it is way better. It's like watching a movie on a 70" and then going down to the bedroom and trying to watch it on a 36". Plus I believe the functionality and the ease of navigation is better on the S3. Again just my opinion.
