Or, you could get the Samsung Omnia 2 with Verizon when it comes out. Better network than ATT.

Dude, seriously, what is the obsession with Verizon, its not like every other carrier is junk. Some people are just too brainwashed with VZW's network propaganda. VZW is good, but other carriers are good too.
