Anybody else getting bored with Vz's lineup?

Looking pretty crappy imo. ATT gets the Note, then it gets upgraded, now it's getting 'refreshed' into a larger size; we get ummmm a new BB Curve, wth.

ATT gets the One X (many blogs are calling it the best Android so far this year), now their getting a succesor already, we get what, a 'refreshed' Incredible? Love my DINC1 but this just doesn't fly imo.

ATT gets Gawd knows how many Win phones; the Titan is already old news (it's beautiful) and the Nokia's, wow, their amazing as well; we got what, that poor old Trophy?

The Galaxy SIII? Everyone has that. There isn't much to look at in Vz's store anymore. I'm getting tired of paying high prices for a second rate line-up. And now they want to 'edit' my internet searches?? What...

It has been this way for years. VZW always seems to have fewer offerings than other carriers. It can be a bit frustrating at times when you're ready for a new device and none of their choices are what you want. That, combined with cheaper plans from other carriers, is exactly what lured me away from Verizon about 6 years ago. What I quickly learned was that a cool phone and an inexpensive plan don't mean squat if you can't get a signal. I got back on VZW as soon as I could and I'm staying put (unless they get ridiculous). Luckily, I have a Galaxy S3 waiting for me at home when I get back from vacation. I think I'll be more than happy with it!

Oh I'll know! I like VZW, but there is a limit to how much I'm willing to pay over other carriers.

I'm still holding out for a Verizon Nexus handset that doesn't have a god-forsaken AMOLED screen.

I could be stuck with my Fascinate for years. Crying or Very sad

"The Galaxy SIII? Everyone has that"

So, it's not enough for Verizon to have a new phone, it has to be a phone that no one else offers? LOL Have you put your hands on a GS3? I did yesterday and there's a lot to like. I'm not sure how I feel about Touch-Wiz. I'm used to HTC Sense and TW is quite different. Still there's nothing boring about the S3 and I would encourage you to check it out.

And as someone else mentioned phone selection and plan cost don't matter much if you can't get a good signal where you need it. In my area at least Verizon has been the best.

Some would argue that the reason why Verizon had a "boring" lineup is because of exclusivity. The Galaxy S3 goes against that very notion.

The last time Verizon had their own version of the same model on other carriers, we were using terms like Palm.

What about the Stratosphere, Fascinate,

Actually, come to think of it, Samsung doesn't really give verizon that many droids that are exclusive to verizon...

I remember when the CDM-9500 was cool because 'In the Club' sounded like the actual instrumental. Can't believe how spoiled people are these days.
