My fear is that it keeps getting pushed back, June goes to July and then before you know its the begining of August and boom Verizon puts into effect the new data plans. Let's hope this isn't the case. Still we are talking another month away for release, cases are already available but no phone LOL

It's a pile of crap. I had it for a week and returned it, my son had the Rezound for 6 months and had to return it 3 times. This last time he said he didn't want another one and Big Red gave him one of the Mot Droids. I think the Bionic?? Do yourself a big favor. Try what I suggested with your Inc and wait it out. Hopefully this 4G will be out soon. Another option would be to pick up an Inc 2 off ebay or craigslist and then just resell it when the Inc 4G comes out. But JMHO!!
Dang. Well that's disappointing to hear. With regard to the factory reset, I have done that with this phone like 4-5 times in the past. It's a huge pain in the ass and it never seems to fully resolve the issues. At one point Verizon told me that they think there is something wrong with the hardware/antenna in the phone, but my warranty has expired so they won't replace it. The funny thing is that since there is no physical damage to my phone, my insurance won't cover it either! I said to the agent, "so basically what you're telling me is that the only way you can help me is if say... my phone somehow accidentally jumped out of my hand and crashed against a wall?" Response: "Assuming it was an accident... yes." Of course, using the insurance would require a $100 deductable, which obviously isn't worth it.

So, given that the hardware in the phone seems to be the problem, I'm curious about this whole rooting thing (not because I think it will fix the hardware, but because I am not worried about screwing up the phone). It all sounds a little complex for me though, like someone who knows how to use computers vs. someone who knows how to program code or take computers apart.

What are the advantages/disadvantages of rooting? Does it turn my phone (in terms of the UI) into something completely different? Is it really technical that someone who doesn't normally to things like that would find to be a pain in the ass ?

When I used the insurance option about a year ago on my OG Inc, they sent me the Inc 2. If thats worth saving your upgrade, you may want to look into that. If they provided me with the new phone that long ago, Im pretty sure they are well out of OG Incredible devices so you wouldnt have to worry about paying $100 for the same phone.

Just a thought.

Also, there would really be no benefit to them purposedly delaying the phone til after the plans take effect. How much of their customer based do you think already has an upgrade waiting and is just waiting for a new phone? How many of those have unlimited data? And how many of those would willingly give up their unlimited data for one of the new phones coming out?
How can it be delayed when they never had a release date?

Verizon's website shows they now have 1 Original Droid Incredible by HTC (Certified Pre-Owned) for Free on a 2 yr contract, full retail is $429.99. It sure looks pretty sitting there waiting for a new owner. It's a great starter phone for someone just getting into their first smartphone. It was my first smartphone and I still love it.

Just because we werent told it had a release date, doesnt mean it didnt have one that we werent aware of. Product training was a month ago for the phone, cases and extended batterys are already out, its clearly already been delayed a few times, whether we were informed of it or not. Verizon chooses to announce things a day or two advance, does that mean one exec. suddenly wakes up that day and says "Hey! Lets release this phone today!". No, of course not, they probably plan it a while in advance. Verizon officially said the phone will be here "in the coming weeks" so if the phone isnt here "in the coming weeks", then that clearly shows it has been delayed once again. June 7 marks the day its been a month since that announcement, and that it didnt arrive here "in the coming weeks". If it isnt here by then, then I'll be inclined to believe that June 21st date. After that, if its delayed again, or if the data sharing takes effect, I'm buying a Nexus. I'm tired of waiting, some of you may have suitable phones, but I have a POS phone that I am very eager to get rid of.

I agree, clearly it's been delayed. Almost every rep from the CTIA said its coming soon in the next few weeks, that has well passed, even the phone reviewers who were there were saying a few weeks. I also thought some phone reviewers like Aaron or Phil would have had a phone by now to review on site but it's obvious there has been a delay.

It has been delayed internally, but every company delays products, it is just that things don't leak as often as some of the technology products. There is a reason Verizon tries to keep things from leaking.

We shouldn't look for items to leak about release dates, then be mad when those dates aren't met. It would be one thing if Verizon said this is coming out in May publicly, then it got delayed, but when people are digging for internal documentation and are mad because the dates don't match what we thought, that isn't Verizon's fault.

Anyone who has worked for a big company like Verizon knows how product releases can be delayed, even non-technology products.

But Verizon officially said it will be available "in the coming weeks", so if it doesn't meet that time frame then it has been delayed. They basically said it will come out in May.

To the guy who's original Dinc is dying and asking why not just get the Rezound: Don't get it and wait for the Dinc 4G because the Rezound does not have an S4 Qualcomm chip.

As to what to get in the interim: another original Dinc. Find it used off contract for $75, and sell it when the Dinc 4G is in your hand.

O_o Where have you been..? lol. Verizon officially announced the phone at CTIA on May 7. There's tons of videos of people handling the phone at CTIA as well. Their official statement said we can expect it "in the coming weeks"

Verizon officially announces HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE -- Engadget

Edit: I'm going on a Verizon sales rep chat spree again. While I know they probably aren't informed of the phone at all, a few of them might have connections with people who do know. I just got an answer from someone "Between you and me, 6/7/12" So there's another possible release date!

That's right, it's official for sure.

I'm more concerned that I keep seeing that it's only a super LCD qHD display. The only place I have seen that it's SLCD2 is from the HTC rep in that video, either he was misinformed or the official release doc from Verizon is not documented correctly.

6/7/12 sounds more like it, the 21st just sounds so far away especially when they have touted coming in a few weeks.

I was also thinking, if this phone is so close to being released, then the phone has already been made right? If there are thousands of these sitting in Verizon's warehouse and something is wrong with the port (if that is true) how do they fix that seeing the phone has already been made? If something is wrong with the port isn't that a "physical thing"?

I think they meant port as in sea port, where the phones come in. It would make sense because of the whole customs issue. If there was an issue with the phone, and tons of models were all sitting in a warehouse, then they would have to all be recalled to be fixed by the manufacturer.

Also, I believe they only said "SLCD" as a generalization, as this is only a mid-range device. The press-release did not go in too indepth, and perhaps the display is something they were not focusing on the device. From the videos, the display very clearly looks like an SLCD2, or a better SLCD technology. IMO from that video I posted, it looks better than the SLCD2 screens on the One series. HTC has released plenty of phones with the SLCD technology, and now all their new phones use SLCD2; why would they exclude this phone? Even the One V, a budget phone, that I believe is only a single core S3 processor, has the SLCD2 screen. Most of the reviewers who saw the screen said it matched the high bar set by the One X, and that the image was very close to the front of the display, which are qualities of the SLCD2 technology. Another reason Verizon may have not mentioned it's SLCD2, is because it's a Droid phone. They may not want their customers being confused by the difference between SLCD and SLCD2, and it just may not make a difference to them.

Why would SLCD look better than SLCD2? Granted it sort of doesnt make sense why the Dinc4gs screen looks better than the One series, but it does. I can clearly see a difference in the displays though, so perhaps it is just SLCD. The thing is, the difference is that the Dinc's looks better so again that wouldnt make sense.

"Later this year" and "mid summer". It SHOULD come out before it takes effect. But it could get delayed again.

Thats what i get 75% of the time. 10% of the people dont know what the phone is. And 15% give me some release date that may or not be real. So far ive gotten the 31st and June 7.
Edit: Another hit on the 31st.
Edit: Another hit on the 7th lol.

lg lucid, razr maxx, spectrum, droid 4 all released after then....

You sound pretty certain of that. I don't think so. I'm trying to stay optimistic. I think it'll look bad for them press wise if they delay it til then, It's a pretty *****ey move.

They'd be pretty much screwing over the maybe 100 some people who have been waiting for this phone and already have an upgrade. There would be really no benefit to delaying it til afterward just to get a very small portion of their customer base off the unlimited data plan, it would only piss people off. I'm sure these customers would upgrade to an already existing phone anyways once they hear about the data sharing plans, which I will be. I said this before and I will say it again, the people who already have an upgrade available and are waiting for this phone to come out represent such a small portion of their customer base that it would provide no benefits to them except getting a few people off the unlimited data plan. This data sharing plan is meant to affect people who aren't due for an upgrade yet.

Guys, I gave in and got a Razr Maxx. I have 30 days to return it to best buy but I think i MAY hold onto it until the next Nexus comes out probably this fall with jellybean.

It's been fun.

You may lose your upgrade eligibility from Verizon if you return the Maxx later than two weeks. That is how it was for me when I returned my Lucid back to Amazon. They will return it for you up to 30 days but you lose your upgrade status after 14.

Ha, now I feel stupid, I thought the person that mentioned this was referring to the usb port. So this was held up with the other HTC phones recently, I guess, if that is true. I'm pretty excited to see some reviews once this phone gets into the hands of Aaron, Phil, etc...

Remember these two timeless messages? Good things come in small packages, and good things come to those that wait. I'll make it because my og dinc is what I received the last time I went through this, and it was worth the wait. Anticipation is making me wait.

lol. I went on the Verizon chat service and somehow one guy knew that I had been asking all the agents when it's coming out. He sounded pissed xD

He said something along the lines of "The options will be exactly the same as all the other agents have told you."

I made up a story about how I had bought the Rezound last week and I was wondering when the Droid Incredible 4G was coming out and if it was in my return window.

It takes a lot of chutzpah for a potential customer to want to know when a product will be released. I mean, you're asking for top secret information, right?

There has to be something you can do better with your time then harass employees who know nothing about new products.

There really isn't. I'm a highschooler on summer vacation. I have absolutely nothing to do with my time. Some of them actually do know about new products though.

Guess what guys: We still have absolutely no idea when this phone will be released. It could be days, it could be weeks, it could be months.
Thanks Apple! The world really appreciates you patent trolling everyone.

New article today, last comment in the comments section shows a Verizon rep says the phone is pushed back to June 28 due to signal strength/dropping mobile calls.

i really dont believe that one bit for some reason. the phone was announced to be coming out in the coming weeks. then we had the port problem? phone stuck in customs? now it is said to have dropped call issues and signal strength issues. i would have thought before they said its going to be released in the coming weeks there would not have been a problem with the dropped calls/signal strength. with how they basically lost their butts on the gnex verizon would have made sure there were no issues like this before saying it was coming out in a few weeks. it had to be tested very good.
and i also would have thought the phones would have been here before the announcement.
now im just getting the feeling they are holding it back for the new plans to come out.

oh and this one person that commented on the article is the only person on the internet that says this...im sure there would be more posts. info about it having problems. would go a long way for verizon to come out and say hey we have to hold it back and get the signal strength/dropped call issue fixed before we release.. we value our customers and want the phone to operate as intended without these kinds of problems.

Well there was one comment on a site in mid April and a guy had all the specs for the phone and said it was slated to come out in mid May, and this information wasnt anywhere else online. I then told the guy that hes probably wrong because all the previous Incredibles launched in late April, well it turns out all his specs were right and the phone has been delayed past mid May.
I agree with you though. As ive said, this phone has been under wraps for quite some time. An issue like this would have been noticed and fixed a while back. As much as I dont want to believe it, this phone probably wont be coming out for another few months just because Verizon likes delaying their products.

Also Verizon is one of those companies that likes to keep quite about things, so they likely wouldnt say anything about an issue like that.

Wow, the Droid Bionic has been removed from the DroidDoes website. Does this mean they are soon loading up the Droid Incredible 4g???, maybe possibly the Razor HD???

They started clearing out phones two months ago so it doesnt really indicate when the phone will come

Its a good sign though.

I hope they don't go with the $299 price shown on that page.

Still looking for SLCD2 but not on that spec sheet.

If we all check out droiddoes every hour maybe we can catch a new shot before it's released.

This is very old news
They used the Razr Maxx page as a template for this one and it was incomplete, thats why it lists the 299$ price.

If the original HTC Incredible release is any indication of this new 4G release...we should see this phone early 2013.

And by then new hardware will have come out, so theyll delay it to the end of 2013 to make hardware adjustments.
