Don't do it. Get the 4gb model..lots of lag and freezing on the 2gb. I was running at 90 percent usage of ram constantly in the 2gb one. In actual usage the reported available ram on the phone is only 1.8 gb and my 4 gb version says only 3.6 gb is available

not sure why the OP is going through the extreme? but i did buy two of these phones from costco. one works perfectly, and the other has a known problem of wifi not reconnecting upon waking back up. not quite sure if the forums are correct, but someone was only able to resolve this by sending the phone back to motorola and having the motherboard replaced. anyway, i do like this phone and the concept of being unlocked, reasonable price, etc. so i'll probably buy yet another of these with costco and then hope that one works--returning the problematic one. this having 2gb (as opposed to other models having 4gb of ram) is a slight consideration--but this last phone is for my mom--and doesn't multitask on the phone.

What do you mean? The post looks like a copy-paste job to me...

B&H Photo still has the 64GB for this price.

P.S. Isn't 90% RAM usage still fine? You're not swapping out to the flash memory at that point.

Define, "fine". The percentage of usage being that high probably indicates that more RAM could be utilized, and with only 2GB, a relatively low amount for most users these days, it is even more likely that that is what it indicates.
