Being a VZW employee, by various means, I have had about 8 phones in the last year (by line upgrades and work phones). These have included the Droid 1, Fascinate, Continuum, Charge, Thunderbolt, Droid 3, and the Incredible 2 as well as a couple Blackberrys, HTC Trophy, and Fathom (worst f'ing phone ever).
I have had the Inc 2 since it came out as my work phone. With the 2.2 software I was impressed by its speed and size. Since the 2.3 update I have been floored. This phone blew away the Droid 3 I had on my personal line even though it has half the processing power. The size is perfect, nice big screen, and such a thin phone. I really don't have a lot more to say about the phone beyond expressing it is (in my humble opinion) the best phone VZW sells (as well as the iPhone, for the people who swing that way).
This is reassuring. Im getting a Dinc2 tomorrow in the mail from Asurion as a replacement for my original Dinc which took a screen shattering tumble this weekend. I wasn't thrilled about losing my Dinc as it was the best phone I've used. Hoping the Dinc2 continues the streak. I also have an available upgrade if I hate it. For $50 it's a steal. I can just sell it if I hate it...
I agree 100%. best phone EVAH! And I have used everything from the old BBs to the iPhone and DINC1 and finally DINC2. It has everything that I ever wanted in a phone. It now has an unlocked SIM. I can take it anywhere in the world, be on CDMA or insert a local GSM SIM and be online on local rates. Is lightening fast. Thinner and lighter than any other phone of its size screen. Two cameras. Longer battery life. No problems at all. MAN!! I am loving it
I've just spent about an hour in Verizon store playing with all the phones. The Inc2 seemed to be the most responsive and smooth. It also downloaded Internet pages faster (3g).
I went right over to Costco and bought one for $29.00.
Couldn't be happier.
Just got my INC 2 yesterday and so far its an awesome phone. Not sure where everyone's at that is having trouble with signal strength but i'm out in Kansas and have perfect signal. My battery life is comparable to my old Moto droid once i changed it over from Global to CDMA. My wife bought an iphone had it 2 hrs and returned it for a INC 2
I try to do my research before buying into something I'll be stuck with for 2 years, and I am glad to hear a VZ employee confirm my findings.
This is by far the best phone out there (in a conservative, balanced way)!

The HTC DROID Incredible 2 launched on April 28th and does well enough to follow the original up. It's not going to be a must-have device for those who own and enjoy the original, but folks new to the DROID party who want an HTC phone shouldn... Read More
