Talked to my Verizon manager friend again this morning. I asked him how sure the the phone will be coming to Verizon.
Again, he said that the information is from one of his best friends who is a "higher-up" within the company. This person *has* received an email that it will be released! The guy has tipped my manager on many other phone releases, and has never been wrong. That, of course, would explain the increase in production.
I'm even thinking about coming back, though it would be a gamble. Since I sent my Rezound in for the $100 HTC upgrade, it's thrown a serious curve into my plan.
I would have to buy a new phone, then trade that one for the Galaxy S4 within 2 weeks (since it isn't out at Verizon yet). When the ONE (or DNA+) is given a release date, would then sell the Galaxy and use that money (and the return cash from ATT) to outright purchase the phone, giving me back my unlimited data.
That may be too stressful, though. I already have the phone and love it. However, to say ATT in this area is horrible is an understatement. I can only get one or two bars in most places, some dropped calls, and barely any 4G (no LTE around here for them at all..though that will change within a month..they're building new 4gLTE towers beginning next week into June). So, if it were you, would you just stick with ATT for the 2 years and watch the growth of their network, or take the chance and head back to Verizon..for a phone that hasn't even been announced yet?????? What's even worse is that I have to make up my mind by May 21..a day before any announcement, Arrrghhhh...
You have to ask yourself how important is a reliable network. A great phone with at best a horrible network, or an outstanding network with a phone that not the ONE. If it were me i would stick with V and see what develops. I have been eligible for an upgrade for 6 months, but I don't require the best things out there as soon as they are released.
And at&t says they have more Coverage than us in there Dreams). Just for the asking nneptune were's your about Location it doesn't have to be pinpoint) i want to see the Coverage for the Area..
"You have to ask yourself how important is a reliable network. A great phone with at best a horrible network, or an outstanding network with a phone that not the ONE."
i dont know what you mean because the HTC One is coming to Verizon very soon as the HTC One like the other carriers. its not going to be a droid or something else.
nneptune if you go to Sensorly.com or find it in the Android PlayStore it's a Nice tool to see were the Coverage is for all Networks and if you have it Installed on your Phone and have it set to Passive were ever you Go in town it Map the Area from your phone what it does it works on GPS location and you don't have to set and hold the phone or anything like that Just lay it in the seat or set it were you do in you car or you can even do it on a Bicycle riding on the Bike paths when your Mapping the Area you want you'll want to Uncheck Passive or it can Run the Phones battery down but as i Mentioned it's a Good tool to use in a Few Minute i'll throw a Link of the Area around Moline from Sensorly.. b33
