Droid Bionic signup

Chances are when there's news regarding the Motorola Droid Bionic on Verizon, you'll hear it here first. But we'll play along. Verizon's offering up an e-mail sign-up form to "receive details and launch dates so you can be one of the first to get the Droid Bionic." Which is nice, but it doesn't really give any more insight into when the darn thing will finally be available.

Actually this was in the forums here about 16 hours ago. See my thread "is this new?" I believe Androidcentral, or at least the fourmus here, were first on this one!

D-L had it posted on their site about an hour later.

By the way -- I did use the "Tip Us!" button.

King Howie says:

my guess is, Big Red decided since Android Central is saying it'll be out soon, they better get the advertisement ball rolling

moosc says:

first I heard of this thanks AC. so Bionic is going to get a push unlike the D3

mgvotaw says:

I'll sign up for a samsung galaxy s 2 info alert!

dustycraine says:

Great information. I appreciate you posting to let us know you're not interested in this particular phone.

fantlash says:

Phandroid had posted this yesterday at around 6 pm. I had to sign up. Hope the release is soon.

TerryD says:

Netflix compatable?

El Cantante says:

Looks like there will be a successor to my OG. Oh boy. I hope this and the SGS come out close to each other. Either of which will be am enormous improvement to the Droid.

dustycraine says:

Yeah, this will likely be the phone that replaces my OG as well. It's started to show its age. It's a nice phone but it's getting all kinds of slow. I can't wait for the day I can open the camera app and be able to take a picture 2-3 seconds instead of the 10-15 seconds it currently takes.

Brad1505 says:

I agree. I cannot decide between the Bionic and the SGS2 right now. My old OG has served me well, but I'm having to reboot it 5 or 6 times a day now. I've dropped it like a hundred time and it still keeps on going.....slowly. I'm just happy it still works. I'm ready to upgrade.

This wait sucks though.

hmackenz says:

Signing up seems kind of pointless. Signed up with Verizon for ThunderBolt info, and got all I needed here. Bought the phone on VZW's site before ever getting an email about it, too!

bbalak says:

+1 didn't get an email from them about the Incredible until I owned it for a month. Signed up to get notifications about the Thunderbolt, and never got an email. Good to see this though, as it means the phone should be coming out soon. Just in time to replace my DInc.

bbqdroid says:

It's been my experience that VZW only sends out these "tell me more" emails AFTER the phone has been put on the market. Not very useful, or smart, if you ask me...

˄˄˄˄˄˄˄˄˄ This ˄˄˄˄˄˄˄˄˄

These sign-ups are useless, folks, unless you really, REALLY want Verizon marketing to have your e-mail. Forgive us for not treating it like it was brought down from the Mount or something.

And besides, someone was a little busy yesterday covering that AT&T event for y'all. :)

Whatever VZW the TECH BLOGS will be all over the release date and pricing before you can press "SEND" on that email

clucernoni says:

I'd just like to point out that I'm still waiting on my email from VZW regarding the Thunderbolt release...So these pages are pointless if they don't actually send anything.

p08757 says:

I think the entire point is that this is the first public sign from VZW that the phone exists and is coming. We all know it was coming, but I don't think anything the public had access to was available till now.

The link is currently hidden, but if you type in the right URL you can see the page.

El Cantante says:

Haha. I thought I was the only clown with a phone that took the time it takes for my backlight to dim for an application to open up. Gotta show up the dude who just got himself a 3D EVO with a VZW offering.

Wolfie#AC says:

Well I was excited to here about this. Till I found interesting out that greedy Verizon is going to change my plan to the tiered data if I buy this phone. Now waite before thou all respond to no their not changein peoples plans Yes they are. Here is why I was a 360 communications then alltel now Verizon for 12+ years I have a DROID x with currently if II change to another 3g6 prone I.e. zinc 2,dx 2 etc they will not change my plan if I went to a 4gtiered phone they will vzhange it. This is because I have a Alltel plan that I get unlimited data included in my price without their 390 dollar charge. All of you out there with Alltell plans will be screwed according to Verizon. I went to Best Buy to gt them to run my me a trial upgrade to a 4g4gtiered phone the bolt it gave him a pop up that my plan was not compatible without the 4gtiered phone. 8 called Verizon an to speak with a supervisor which I assume was she confirmed what Best anit said. So here comes sprinted after July 15th any help in this or suggestions to keep my current plan with the Bionic is most welcome. Thanks Wolfie

fyrfyter says:

So you are complaining because you weren't originally on Verizon and were getting a heck of a deal, but now because you want something new, your carrier has been bought by Verizon, and you are complaining about the price? Come on, get real. The rest of us have been paying all along. Why didn't you switch to a Verizon Unlimited data plan long ago?...... Oh I get it, it would have cost more.....

Wolfie#AC says:

Ok maybe I didn't articulate enough. which I apologize. when I renewed my plan to get a DROID x I did sign up again with Verizon it states on my bill as unlimited kilobytes of data- VZ I can only assume it means verizion ....... what the issue is they told me the reason was thier computer system don't allow for a 4g device to be added to a alltel plan some of the plan is alltel but the unlimited kilobytes of data- VZ is verizion. got me so far? customer service stated the reason for the change was because it has a sim card.

Wolfie#AC says:

ok sorry all I just got off the phone with Verizon again now their saying I can stay on my same plan...... the rep did a mock up of me switching to a tbolt the only thing that changed was the insurance. lol btfom. she did note in my account that when the bionic is pre released she will call or text me so she can up grade me with no issues. I am now a happy puppy again.

Jude526 says:

Sorry there is nothing they will do. If you change to a 4G phone you will have to take the tiered data plan. My suggestion is to email Verizon how you feel about the tiered data and removing the unlimited data. I think if more people email and complain then maybe some changes will come about. But we can't just sit back and hope they make changes. Our voice is important. I am on unlimited and if I get told I can't keep it if I were to switch to a 4G phone, I will most likely be changing over to Sprint as well. I have been with Verizon forever and a day and really prefer their network. It is the best, but they don't care about their customers dollar value. Their concern is their bottom line........but yet Sprint and TMobile have unlimited data and not changing.

amojeba says:

T-mobile got rid of unlimited data last month.
Currently, Sprint is the only of the 4 major US carriers that offers unlimited data plans to NEW customers.

flighinhigh says:

It was waiting in my email this morning, so I signed up.
If I do not get the Bionic then it looks like the DX2 or stay with the DX great phone. It would be nice to have a 4.5" screen for us seniors that see triple plus ghost letters. :)

moosc says:

also after Phil mentioned on the pod cast yesterday he said the bionic has gone into mass production. so where getting close and I think Phil knows more then he's letting on.

heh. Sometimes. But in this case, nope. :)

amojeba says:

I'll wait until they confirm the bootloader will eventually be unlocked on this phone.
Till then, it's just promises.

Personally I think AC should have these kinds of notification lists. We'd actually get the email before release. I tend to get the Verizon emails I ask for about 3 days after they are actually in the stores already.
