    Verizon only has 700 minutes or 1400 minutes on the family plan. We were using 700 minutes but her mom calls alot from a land line and it was killing us. We have unlimited text cause I text her and friends alot LOL Jr can vouch for that!

    700 minutes doesn't have F&F so we are forced to use 1400 minute plan and with that many minutes, its not really needed to use F&F cause we barely use over 700 minutes as it is. Hell one month we only used 400 minutes total.

    Wherever I can find the iron.
    Newegg wireless, which is really just part of Wirefly, offers the Rezound for $49 sometimes with a renewed Verizon contract. The only thing you have to do is renew through them. Otherwise you can do everything else at the corporate store, including returning the phone if you run into any problems.
    brandonwh64 and JrRacinFan say thanks.

    Always wondered what high end android devices would compare to desktop cpu's. I'd say around p4 performance. By all means im completely guessing. Anyone that could give an estimate, or even better an answer? :p

    probably close, clock for clock, but the tech is different and you can't run x86 on these.

    Can you add me please? My primary cell is a Sprint Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch (running the blazer rom w/ EL 29 modem, overclocked to 1.3GHz (Tegrak)).

    The blazer rom is a highly optimized and modded gingerbread ROM. It's super F'ing fast. I score in the 5K range in quadrant standard with moderate OC. I've seen scores of 6281 on XDA with this phone and custom ROMs. Freakin' nuts...

    I just bought a Samsung Galaxy Note (international version, specs are better). Can't wait to test it out. It's basically a bigger and better version of my epic touch. Oh and it's white.

    Absolutely love my epic touch. It's by far the most powerful and functional phone I've ever owned. It is so fast and solid. I use a Seidio Surface combo black case + holster, and some screen shields - forget the brand.

    I will do an unboxing when it arrives.

    I'm stuck with my epic touch until then.

    Hey guys I still don't have a smartphone(I still don't think you should have to use internet), but I may be able to get a new phone around May from U.S. Cellular and for now I was wondering what phone is better HTC Hero S or a Motorola Electrify I was thinking the Moto was better, but I have never had a Android so wasn't for sure. Also to note U.S. Cellular will be having 4G LTE in like 2 months. With phones ETC. Here is a side by side compare


    EDIT: is there a website that has a performance comparison of mobile procs?
