My cell phone I was sent an "exclusive offer" by Verizon to upgrade at the one year mark. Since my Droid Eris was terrible after the most recent Android update I decided to cash in and buy the Samsung Galaxy S. Now, I'm feeling like it's still too slow for me and wondering if I should spend the extra $200 to upgrade to the HTC Thunderbolt (during my 14day trial so I can still return the Samsung). One part of me says do it, this is the phone you'll have for the next two years and yet another part of me says that I'm wasting money on this phone and that $200 could be better spent elsewhere. For comparison, I am lucky to get 1mb of download speed on 3g while my BIL consistently gets 15mb of download speed on 4g I also hacked into my last phone so that I could hook it up to my computer and use its internet so the 4g would be awesome!
