I think i win the "I have the worst phone right now" contest with my LG Chocolate (1st gen). Verizon + Htc commercials need to be delivered on the Super Bowl. Gettin tired of those droid commercials anyway.
FWIW I talked to a friend who is a manager at a verizon store. He has heard nothing of the Passion/Bravo/Incredible. His store is a somewhat small store when compared to some verizon stores i have been in. So he may just be left out of the loop.
