    Sorry that you're being pushed into an early decision. I'll keep following with great interest.

    CyanogenMod already did that, but thanks. Without CyanogenMod, I would have had to stop using the Nexus One long ago. The problem is that waking up doesn't work if it is off. The fact that it powered off on its own means that it is no longer worth the risk even if I can revive it. It is, after all, 3 years old. A three year old Palm was just hitting it's stride. A 3 year old smartphone is Methuselah. ;)

    For my situation, I'm just not going to find anything that will beat the price/performance ratio of the Nexus 4. And, besides, I already bought all that stuff for it. :D

    If I really consumed enough voice and data to make a contract worth it (remember, I spend my entire work day with no cellular or wifi), I'd honestly consider a $299 subsidized Note II. There is just no way that makes any sense, unfortunately.

    The Nexus 4 is still very much worth drooling over and I am looking forward to getting it. I'm sort of making myself think about it, but it is just a meaningless exercise before I order. :D

    The maddening thing is that HTC always refused to do the $50 repair because the boot loader was unlocked. They said they would only do it if I agreed to let them replace the MB for an additional $200.

    Okay, times up. I thought it over. Time to order. :newpalm:

    Coinkidinkly, it is just the amount I still have left from my tax refund. ;)

    EDIT: I dood it. Ships 1-2 weeks. When I get it, I'll start a new thread. I have no idea what I'll do with my Avatar. I guess Hookette will be of two minds. ;)

    Hard to imagine an indecisive hookette. Maybe one mind, two outfits? Everyone needs some stretchy pants sometime, right?

    Congrats on the new tech :thumbsup:

    T-Mobile has a web special. For $30/month I get 100 minutes plus unlimited texts and Data (HSPA+ sorta 4G, 5Gb cap). Since I don't talk a lot (but when I need to, I need to), this works perfectly. I'm lucky enough to live in an area where all 4 major carriers have good coverage. The phone has both AT&T and T-Mobile frequencies, but T-Mobile is a better deal.
