So i'm considering buying a Nexus One, but i have 7 months left of my contract with the G1 (no it can't be exchanged) and i'm not sure i'm willing to pay for it unlocked (do you think its worth it)?

Anyways, what are some clever engravings? If you were to get one, what would you have engraved on yours?

I was thinking of maybe some cute acsii art? Some code? Something creative?

"sudo phone get -nexusone" is what a friend of mine was thinking of getting on his

Linux joke, cute, but sorta old at this point.

Is it even worth the engraving since you can't return the phone if you get it?

And if i get the phone, is it worth paying the unlocked price?

Which country are you in DPic?

I ask because in the UK there's VAT to pay on it to. I haven't been able to get through to the order page but the overall cost is around £390 here.

But with it you can use say a O2 simplicity plan at £20 / month.

(see here: shop.o2.co.uk/sim-only-simplic ...)

Cost over say 2 years is ~ £870.

Thats cheaper than an iPhone – but still rather expensive. I've got an iPhone 3G and I'm considering moving to the Nexus One when my contract expires (Feb).

This is not the droid you're looking for.

My parents got mad at me over the idea of me buying myself one with my own money. Would somebody here like to donate one to me? xD

You should wait for the seven months to expire. Besides, maybe by that time they'll have the Nexus 3gs out;)

Hah, i'll try and hold out as long as i can but i really can't stand this G1 much longer. New tech is always going to be coming out, i don't see much point in continually waiting
