Phone ran over by car, need replacement

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
So my LG Dare was run over by several cars yesterday, and I need a new one.
I'm in a bit of a situation as I have Verzion and there isn't a lot of good options.

Currently I'm considering the iPhone 4 or the Droid X. I really wanted to wait for the dual cores to come out, but with my phone shattered I can't wait any longer.

Would it be smart to get either one of those phones even though they aren't "brand new" phones? Should I just buy another LG Dare for cheap on ebay?

I'm leaning towards the iphone, but if the iPhone 5 comes out in 2 months I'm going to be pissed lol.

Fast responses appreciated as I'm heading to the Verizon store in about 3 hours.

Fate says: time to upgrade!

HTCs are pretty good

I'd say hold on. There are three trade shows (CES, MWC, CTIA) that have a lot of smart phones in them. Verizon is most likely to be a bog shower at CTIA in march. Why not wait less than 4 weeks and see what shows up? If you don't like it, you can buy what's available at the time. However, understand that CTIA stuff probably won't be available till maybe June. The iPhone 5 won't be available till June on AT&T (and verizon may or may not get it then). If that's too long of a wait, then both the DX and the iPhone 4 are great choices.

Several cars? Sounds like alcohol was involved. Must have been a great time. I agree we need pictures

Haha. I'm in class at the moment or I would.

Looking at ebay a used iphone 4 is worth around $540 compared to the $200 for a used Droid X. I think if I get the iPhone I can always just sell it and pay off the contract fee if necessary. I like the Droid X's style, but the resale value is huge for me especially since I can get both phones for $100.

Dude, your phone just got run over by not just one but several cars. Re-sale value should not be a factor for you...I would go with easily replaced or much more durable as a selling feature in your shoes.
