    I would give it to my mom who is using an ancient flip phone still which she hates with a passion


    I’m tmobile but I guess I could unlock it for use on tmobile. And when att swallows up tmo, it will be better.I would give to my teen daughter for Christmas

    Not gonna lie, I’d sell it on Ebay to put towards a Transformer prime.

  • Weudel

    I could really use this for a gift to a friend.

  • andytseng

    I would give this to my girlfriend who is stuck in the dark ages with an old flip phone. This would also save me from dealing with the Black Friday mess.

  • dwilson6

    I would maybe use it as a development phone.

  • techvudu

    I don’t have ATT but know a few friends that would greatly appreciate it as a stocking stuffer this year. Would be a perfect phone to get them off of that other brand that they are so desperately wanting to do. Would love to hook a friend up. Thanks for the contest.

  • Jake

    I would give it to my loving girlfriend as a super awesome Christmas present!

  • sd73ta

  • simbill

    I would use it to Infuse some android fun coupled with 4G speeds into my life!

  • spintrex

    My girlfriend of four years has never stepped into the smartphone world so it would be great to show how much love Android could provide to her artistic persona anywhere on the go. Great customization, huge app store, slick camera…. what better way to try something new than Android.

  • Mooky

    Use it to replace the atrix my kid dropped and cracked the screen on.

  • Conan Kudo

    Use the larger screen to do a lot of text chatting and the front facing camera to video chat over the HSPA+ network!

  • chicknlil

    I’d give it to my Mom as a Christmas gift. Given my financial situation, would likely beat out anything else I could possibly give her, and I think it would be a great introduction to the world of smartphones.

  • alee

    I plan to use this to develop apps to sell.

  • dunneldeen

    I would give it to my wife for christmas

  • cj100570

    Correction, you state that the Infuse is locked to Verizon, it in fact is not. It’s a GSM phone locked to AT&T.

    • Taylor Wimberly

      Nice find! Leftover from the previous post I guess. Fixed now.

      • cj100570

        I thought I’d misread it at 1st. But after rereading it 3 times I decided that it indeed did say Verizon. Lol.

    give it to my grandma for christmas!
    a huge phone will be great for her failing eyes

  • nakunz

    If I had the Infuse, I would give it to the girl I love for Christmas. I would set it up for her, root it, change the boot animation, etc. I would then wrap it back up in the packaging so that when she opens it and turns it on for the first time, the boot animation will display the message, “Will You Marry Me?”

    I would then be there right in front of her, down on one knee.

  • krtlarson

    I would use it for development and leave verizon for att. Tired of their policies.

    I’d use it to defend Google’s honor from all my iPhone toting roommates!

  • aniruddhabarapatre

    I would start using Android… :D

  • OOMatter

    It would replace the poor broken Dinc that I dropped and the slow clunky OG Droid that I had to borrow to replace it. It would be so nice to have a phone that could handle fancy apps like gmaps and gmusic without overheating and crashing.

    I’d give it to my mom and help her replace an old blackberry she’s been on for the past 3 years

    I would open the box, then open the phone box, and remove all of the plastic from the device. From there, I would insert a SIM card into the device, put the battery in, and slide/snap the battery cover on. Next, I would hold down the power button to boot the device. Finally, I would enter my credentials and continue to set up the Infuse and start to use it, all the while giddy like a schoolgirl.

  • aceofhearts24

    I would give away my Samsung Captivate to someone in need of a new phone given that its Thanksgiving and that’s what its all about. With the new phone I would then take full advantage of its capabilities and perhaps root it and try different custom roms.

  • Justin Underscore

    I would not put my current SIM card in it! Getting a superfluous data plan tacked on to my parents’ phone bill would not be good at all. Instead, I’d wait until my current AT&T contract is up (not too much longer, actually) and then go prepaid with this awesome phone to save money.

  • sdtrinity3

    Android on AT&T 4G? I’d watch Netflix all day :)

    I would give this phone to my wife who still uses a BlackBerry. She has been looking at an iPhone for a while now, but this might sway her to Android.

    I plan to wrap it, put it under the tree, and surprise myself x-mas morning

  • JetsteJ

    This phone would do wonders for my life. I love techology and love knowing about the newest tech. I plan to major in computer engineering and create the newest softwares for phones and computers. Unfortunately I dont have much money and my only android device is a severely outdated samsung Moment. That Infuse would greatly help me out next year as i go off to college, since I can’t afford to buy one myself.
