It also looks like most discussions that mention the "Bionic" are gone from the community...... makes me think that this is a true story that the Bionic has been killed.

I can't find the latest *real* news ... is the rumor that the release of the Bionic has been canceled and/or pushed back true?

 

Also, I can't find a definitive answer to this question: what new "4G" phones are forthcoming?  and what are their expected release dates?

 

I'm a ten year customer of Verizon and I've waited, with great anticipation, for a long time to do a serious phone upgrade.  I thought the Bionic was going to be my dream phone.  My dream, I guess, was dashed.  What do I start dreaming about now (besides a 4G network that actually works by the time Verizon releases a 4G phone I can fall in love with)?

I am curious.   What  device do you use now?     How large are the files you upload and download?  How often?    Do you plan to use  VoIP apps?  etc.     Use the   http://www.verizonwireless.com/splash_includes/datacalculator.html

 

If your monthly usage is less than 5 GB per month,  note that this amount of data can be downloaded in under 40 minutes in 4G.

A one hour, DVD grade movie uses about 1GB of data.   4G can download the one hour movie in 10 minutes.  Thats ten times faster than streaming rate.

Please anyone give me more information on the droid bionic because I have had nothing but problems with it since I bought it two months ago and took it back to verizon and was told to bad buy another phone. Really ? Spent alomost 500 hunderd dollars on a phone that doesnt work and verizon emploees tell me to bad buy another phone. Verizon is starting to act like AT&T ,whats up verizon ? Why are you nolonger the company I always bragged about being the best out there. This is completely uneceptable let alone truly dishonest !!!!

My device will continually shut off for no reason often while I'm in the middle of a call or answering an email. When it powers back up whatever calls, texts, or emails I got that day it will lose. Then the next day they show up. It also takes forever to load anything, its like dial up. My old first original DROID is faster.
