looks like a solid phone. I am on ATT, but I would caution you with the "Sense" skin. I have always heard that it runs much slower than other phones. If you plan on rooting and flashing a custom ROM, then go for it. Spec wise its a beast.

Very true sense 2.0+2.5 were every slow (had EVO and EVO 3d) but the new 3.0 is way better. If you really don't like it root the phone and run ics or jb cm Rom.

I'm debating dropping my rezound too. I just wonder if this will have the option to run an extended battery.

my guess would be no. looks like the back cover doesnt come off. but the pic could be deceiving
