I'm about to pull the trigger on buying a Droid Mini for Verizon. I'm coming from a 2010 Rooted/ROMd HTC Incredible original.
Been waiting for smaller form factor, and it's got a nice non-bloatware Jelly Bean stock OS that's got many bells and whistles I only thought rooted ROMs would give me...plus wireless charging and USB external support(?) Played with one for an hour last night in the store and other than the Back button being a little too far down-left for my stubby thumb....it's a vast jump into the present from my legacy 2010 phone.
My real hope is to see if/when anyone gets it to successfully work on a T-Mobile SIM somehow. I never had a SIM card phone before, and didn't think Verizon phones had them, but apparently under the volume rocker lives a SIM on these Droids.
Verizon plan would be $10 less than I currently pay at a total of $95/mo, and that's including "edge" aka "Jump" plan so I'm not locked into a 2 year relationship with the hardware. However, I could get on an equivalent T-Mobile plan for $50/mo.....but I don't think I want the HTC One Mini...even though the size is prob good, I beat on phones to much to have a sleek aluminum gallery piece...plus I don't want Sense and BlinkFeed or BeatsAudio.....
I know - long and boring.
Could have just said:
Let me know when someone sucessfully gets the Mini working on T-Mobile.
