My friend has it, and I have the Bionic, they're comparable for the most part however is has been having software problems and he had to get it returned because of it.

Yeah, maybe 2nd generation will be better.. The only complaints I've read is the battery life. I've learned to put my phone in Airplane Mode if I'm on a long car drive, the phone continuously searching for signals really sucks the life out of the battery.

I'm getting a Bionic later today. Do you have to pay extra for the internet hot-spot?

Has anyone gotten the built in extra battery pack for their phone? I'm thinking about it...$89 is kinda steep
I just cant stand my battery being low

You mean the extended battery? It's 89 bucks?

I was able to get mine for $25 and I thought it was only normally $50. The extended battery isn't that great, it's better than a regular battery but it still dies too much, it's the problem with smart phones.

I miss the days of my Nokia and being able to go without charge for 2 weeks.
