Don't trust anything a sales rep says, they'll say anything to encourage you to buy. Do some research first, see if where you are going does have a strong 4G signal. I'm not saying he lied to you, but he possibly could be over exagerating the truth.

Thunderbolt is my personal favorite. I have two co-workers, one with the Thunderbolt and the other with the Charge. They both love their phones very much. If you don't mind the cheap plastic Samsung feel, then the Charge is a very amazing phone. Otherwise, it's all about the Thunderbolt.

Do you plan on rooting your device? They recently got the Charge rooted. Any questions at all, just ask away. I sell cellphones lol.

The X2 is the flagship, but I'm hearing there's been problems with it's firmware. People cannot even use a custom launcher with out memory problems. But it may be an isolated issue, and it will probably be resolved if/when gingerbread is released by moto (or is at least leaked).

The Thunderbolt has crap battery life. The Charge has great battery life, but IMO is extremely ugly, and single-core is a thing of the past.

I'd honestly wait for the Bionic, or if you're antsy and have money, get the X2.

True, to some degree. If you know how to manage a smartphone, the battery life is not that bad. For example, my Nexus One, and my Nexus S can both last about 2 days without a charge. Keep in mind, I work everyday. Thus, I use my phone frequently to make phone calls for people. My G2 would last mucho longer than both of those!

Android's version of jailbreaking. It's basically allowing you admin access to everything on your device - from the filesystem to the bootloader. You are open to a lot more apps which require a rooted device to work. For example, Titanium Backup allows you to backup apps and delete bloatware easy.

Another one of the advantages of rooting is you can flash custom ROM's different from the stock firmware, which are usually developed to add functionality or optimize the system. With access to the recovery image also allows you to backup your entire phone into a large save state, for restoration in case bad stuff happens.

all i can say is i,m still useing the first gen modle and still love it,had it for 2 years, But the charge is looking pretty good too me, think that one will be my next. Besides i love the feel of metal over flimsy plastic any way-another reason i still have my first one.

I looked up the Bionic and it looks amazing. As long as that comes out by the time I start school I think I'll go with that. If not, probably the Charge.
