Buying party favors? Seriously, how about backing up your current phone? Are all the programs and data you want to have on the new phone ready to download via Appbrain (or something similar)? Case, car charger, screen protector, headphones, BT headset, wifi home router? You'll figure it out.

Going to start off fresh with this one so no need to back up. Got my in transit email too. Big Red has gone cheap no more over night. Mine due to show Wednesday. Thing I'll get a Otterbox for it. And look into the wireless chargers for the bedroom. Fir travel I'll just use the USB charger.

Hopefully the Otterbox (or any other non-wireless charging case) will allow wireless charging...

I'm going to hold off on a case for a bit and see if I feel the need and see what others are saying. Looks like one of the better designed HTC cases from the sounds of it.

I didn't order mine until last night, and the estimated delivery day is Friday. Guess I'll be taking Thanksgiving photos with my Rezound ...

This entire thread has been based on a lie!
Since mine too has been in Memphis for 44 hours and counting....

New Question:

I can turn my old phone into a Wifi-only rooted thingy at any time in the future - right?

My DNA arrived before I came home from work and is charging up now. One thing I noticed was less documentation than for my DINC1 and the SIM was already installed, those are so tiny. I cannot wait for the light to turn green so I can power it up!!

I know, its like watching a pot of water boil, ugh. Been about two hours already and it may not matter but its something I do when I get a new phone. I did notice the notification/charging light is much brighter on the back than the front.

Did Verizon instruct FedEX to hold my phone for 2 Days, 1 Hours and 16 Minutes in Memphis?

Do you need to root it to allow it to work off contract? I would like to use it for the games my son plays to keep him off my new toy. Would i still be able to use all the functions other than phone and data? Meaning it would just work throught the wireless and still use google play and that sort of stuff?

Until I read this post i didnt even think of doing this...lol
