They can be rooted, but that's on you and your warranty.

The thunderbolt is the only 4g by verizon atm. Unless you're extremely lucky; 4G service is few and far between atm in most areas.

Also, wirefly has some great deals right now on the Droid X.
Just checked Wirefly- They have the Droid X for half the price Verizon offers on their website. Though, when it asks about "Calling Plan Features", It gives me 4 options regarding texting. I'd like to keep unlimited texting, but that's not one of the options.
What do?

I would personally choose HTC over motorola simply because of the massive dev community HTC phones have over Motorola.

For example, HTC phones were the first to get gingerbread roms, the incredible has Desire Z roms (updated sense/UI), and the Incredible 2/thunderbolt roms are in the process of being ported to the Incredible. Also, since the EVO and Incredible are almost identical hardware wise, many roms are made for both phones.

The Droid X may have a larger screen, but the dev community that HTC allows to thrive by not locking down the bootloader would win me over over a slightly more powerful Motorola phone any day.

The thunderbolt is up for $175 this weekend.

I don't plan on doing much modding other than rooting my phone, and making it so that I can get the free tethering. Therefore, I'll stick with the Droid X.
Thanks for the input, though.

I don't have either the DX or the DINC

I have a OG Droid

rooted of course

I will say this my phone is oc'ed to 1Ghz and still lasts all day with heavy data usage

the Droid 2 is also a great option if you want a qwerty keyboard. I think its as powerful as the DINC or close to the DX.

if you are worried about size I would stay away from the DX because that sucker is huge, so the DINC would be a smaller option.

I have messed around with the version of Android the Droid X runs and it is okay but I would run with a stock android instead of the ninja moto blur it runs. Stock is the easiest to run and most rom creators like to go from the stock os instead of the different variations of Android ex. MotoBlur and SenseIU(which is know to eat up battery)

hope this helps

Hey I would advise you against getting a droid X.

The phone has good specs, but Verizon/Motorola ruined it somehow, maybe with the intrusive skin.

My roommate has a DX and I have a G2, and my phone was 3x as fast in Linpack as his phone, and his phone has a higher clockspeed. Stock android experience is really worth it, avoid phones with excessive skins like Motoblur at all costs. It literally ruins phones.

The G2 is a sweet phone by the way.
