So what is the deal with the "pre" alpha.. I see you are running the last one that is NOT a pre alpha? Is this the only place to see when he posts a new ROM? or is there actually an updated form on XDA for his updates?

We should start an official ICS Inc ROM update under the "All Things Root" Thread... Mods.. can you move out the few posts in this Thread that are related to the ICS Roms and move them under the All Things Root Thread?

Have had the Dinc since it came out 4/29/2010. I officially upgraded this morning to the Samsung Stratosphere (certified pre-owned). With my upgrade credit, I paid $20 ... good deal. And I will be trading in my Dinc to VZW and getting $41 in return. I could have prob gotten more on Craigslist or something but I just wanted to get rid of it. I liked the Dinc but I was over it already. It is 2012, time for a change, even if it is for a midline Android but at least it has 4G. Looking forward to the new one!

Lack of GSM is a deal killer for me .. I wish Verizon phones would include this feature routinely (the world is getting smaller .. people travel and want to have use of their phone while abroad)

I finally bit the bullet last week. My Dinc has been retired to wifi only, and will be setup for my kids to play games on mostly.

I picked up the RAZR MAXX on launch day, and being able to use my phone like it was meant to be used without plugging it in during the day was a huge factor in my decision, and to date, I have yet to need to plug in my phone before I go to bed and I'm a fairly heavy user.

My first smart phone was an Eris. Next was the DINC and I loved that phone for two years.
I've upgraded to the Razr Maxx and this phone is awesome!
DINC is in the drawer and will probably be in use for a few more years as my wife's phone.
Can't recommed the Maxx enough. The battery life on this phone is fantastic. I've had it for a week and only two times on the charger!
DINC RIP!

I jumped ship. Loved my Dinc but it was time to move on. I went to the Droid Razr Maxx and so far love it. The battery alone has me sold (day 3 without needing a charge!).

I have flashed ICS on my DInc and put Groove IP on it. I think I'm going to use it as a corded/cordless home phone in my house.

Well...up until now my posts in this thread have been unofficial; times change and now I must make it official and say goodbye to my Incredible. Just finished up placing my order for my Galaxy Nexus which should hopefully be here by the end of the week. Just a couple more days which will involve getting ready for my new phone.

I said goodbye in a weird way to my Dinc. I kept having hardware failures and eventually I couldn't get a replacement. I was given a Dinc 2. Then that had a hardware failure and it couldn't get replaced. So VZW gave me a DX2. I wanted badly to keep my Dinc until the Nexus dropped, which I got on launch day! But it wasn't in the cards.

I gave my DX2 to a friend for Christmas 2010...rooted and ROMd, of course, and she loves it.

That's my Dinc story, albeit, a tad late.

I'm starting to have what I'm guessing are hardware failures also - the Music and Gallery apps keep losing my media which is stored on emmc storage, and even Astro sometimes says that the emmc card is empty. Sometimes I can restore it by connecting to my computer as a disk drive and then unconnecting, which causes the internal storage to be reset and sometimes I have to reboot. It's flaky and happens randomly. Sometimes the emmc data is there but the media doesn't show up and sometimes it's not.

Anyway, I think the phone is starting to fail and it's time to get something else, I'm just not ready yet. I don't want to lose the "free" hotspot feature which I only use every now and then for a few minutes at a time. I'm still waiting for a pure HTC ICS phone and I'd also like to wait for that waterproof technology to come on a stock phone. I hope I can wait a few more months.

Think my wife and I will be making this transition also in the next couple of weeks. Just have to get in the store and hold the Maxx and Nexus to make up my mind. Pretty sure the Maxx is the way we'll end up going... I can live w/out ICS for a bit. My DInc. will be missed... it's been a fun ride.

HTC is not going to make a pure ICS phone. Their phones are going to have Sense on them.

^This. That's 100% correct. Sense is a nice introduction into the Android ecosystem. I would recommend someone coming from a dumb phone or from Apple to get a HTC phone over a pure Google phone for their first attempt. I'm glad my Incredible was my first Android phone. I resisted the "pure Google" crowd for about the 1st year or so of my Incredible because it was "easier". Once I finally decided to give it a real try without Sense, I had a chance to see how much better it is without it.

With all of the 3rd party launchers out there, if you like Sense you can get a pure Google phone and add it. NovaLauncer does pretty much all that Sense does but without as much bogging down of the system. All of this is IMHO of course.

I disagree. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE Sense. Love it. I've tried Cyanogen and went right back to Sense. I have flashed pure ICS on my DInc (using the DInc2 as my main phone these days) and it's a good OS in what little time I've had to play with it. It's buggy, but it's beta. I still like the feel of Sense better. To each his own though. My next phone will likely have Sense because I consider it to be a value add.

I didn't actually mean pure as in no Sense. I actually love Sense too, that's why I want another HTC phone. I meant pure ICS as in, made for ICS - not just having ICS added on. Even some of the new phones that come with ICS stock look like they were made for Gingerbread.

Agree 110%! I actually did the same thing you did and am right back to sense as well.

Thumbs up

Well with happiness as of Friday I will bid farewell to my Incredible. It was fun while it lasted, and I really loved the phone, however after that last update and costantly telling me "low disk space", enough was enough. Always having to delete stuff just to make that annoying icon disappear and the charging of batteries, I just think i deserve better. I will still keep you as a emergency back up but must move on the bigger and better......Razr Maxx.

My Dinc is still rocking, its an mp3 player now. Hooked up to the stereo, but I wanted a bigger screen and 4g. Money was tight, so I went with the Thunderbolt. So far no problems, but still have great memories with the Dinc.

Alas, all good things must come to an end (or atleast, must get upgraded). I'm happy with my DInc. It's survived a LOT more punishment then I would ever have hoped, even a massive spiderweb crack up the screen and the thing STILL works flawlessly. I'll definitely be hanging on to it, and I'm glad I picked it for my first smartphone. Time to move onto something with a bigger screen though.

Today I ordered an LG Lucid, looks like I'm the first one on here to do this. The trigger factor was that the battery in my DInc is suddenly dying. Suddenly, it's dropping charge very quickly. Anyway, I'm hoping for a phone with better voice quality which has been my major beef with the DInc. I couldn't resist the price on the LG.

So i purchased my dinc off contract to replace my D2G because my warranty had expired and my D2's screen digitizer had a nice strip from top to bottom that only worked when it felt like it so i decided i would prefer to get a phone by a better manufacturer (HTC) for a little more money than it would cost to get my D2 replaced by insuricare (also a joke). At any rate I plan to have my Dinc for at least another year. Now that i have gone through all of the nightmare that was rooting it and then flashing CM7, it's better than my D2 ever was anyway. The hardware is outdated but it's a great little phone. I just hope that support for us folk with the older phones continues even after everyone else has jumped ship. I do know that when i have an upgrade i plan to move to either another HTC or the next google phone though. I want to be able to either run pure google or at least have something that will be relatively easy to root and HTC seems to be very cooperative with the dev crowd.

----------------------------------

Rooted Droid Incredible (OG) running some variation of cyanogenmod, right now it is 7.1 but yesterday it was 9.0.0 (unofficial kang for DINC), it is coming along well by the way.

My first droid was a dinc, upgraded from a very old razr circa 2005 :P

Last year my dinc started to spontaneously reboot on me, so I upgraded to the dinc 2, and once I sorted the reboot issue (charging + wifi or gps on = overheat and reboot loop for me) I gave it to my kids to play on as well.

I actually just put the aokp ics rom on today, but it has quite a bit of video lag, so I may just go back to gb and check out cm7.

I'd have to say my most memorable moment was receiving the froyo ota update while I was at vmworld. I literally just had the phone for a week when that update hit.

When it came to listening to music or a video, I'd always choose the dinc over the dinc 2, simply because the audio was so much louder on the dinc. Its a damn good phone, and aside from the battery not holding a charge like it used to, and the overheat and reboot issue, I plan on using it until it breaks for good.

Droid Incredible, you were an incredible first Android device for me, thank you

My DINC has had a nasty crack in the glass for a while now but has worked just as good as day one in spite of the crack. I ordered a new digitizer and now I do not like it. It seems way too sensitive. So I think I will be using an upgrade. Now I just don't know what to get. RAZR? Nexus? I think I want something with a bigger screen. The DINC has been a great phone but time to move on.

The Inc 4g is rumored for may 10th for $249.99 . It will have a 4in screen.
IMO though its overpriced.

Just received my Galaxy Nexus in the mail today. The screen is super huge and amazing. So far, I love it. Works great and buttery smooth. I will, however, miss my Incredible as a phone. I had a lot of good times and did a lot of things with that beast. I'm going to keep it around as an MP3 player now.

My first smartphone was an AMOLED DROID Incredible, which I ordered just days after release. About a year later I rooted and de-bloated it. Three weeks after that I put CM7 on it, which is still how it's set up.

But I grew tired of it, so back in February I picked up an LG Spectrum off of ebay. I rooted and de-bloated it after about 6 weeks and one day soon I will be putting a custom ROM on it.

Now that I'm used to the bigger HD screen, I have a really hard time dealing with the old DInc. But I keep it around as a media player, a game player for my kids, and as a geocaching device I can let my kids use when they're out with me (I just have to preload the caches so that I don't need a data connection).

It was a great first smartphone with a huge community of developers. Now that I'm on the Spectrum, I really miss that huge community. But there are a few of us that are really helping the noobs get situated on the Spectrum. We're not exactly "pioneers," but it's kind of a rush being a bit more in the forefront.

Overall, I enjoyed the Incredible. I'm enjoying the Spectrum, too, but in a different way because of the smaller community. But since I didn't use my upgrade to get here, I'm waiting for Verizon to get a decent phone running the Qualcomm S4 or S4 Pro chipset. If that takes longer than expected, I'll just keep playing with the Spectrum.

My Dinc is still a great phone and in perfect condition after almost 2 years. One blown speaker was the only problem that I really had with it and that was fixed quickly & easily. This phone has been great. It was still out performing iPhone 4's which really pissed off the fan boys at work to no end!
I switched to the Rezound and have been really happy since getting a 1900 mha battery. I love the battery life of the Razr Maxx but that is one ugly phone lol. I really feel like the Rezond is the next evolution of the Dinc in so many ways. Alas, this has been a great community with a great bunch of people helping each other out. I hope to see you in the Rez forums!

I wasn't going to a pay premium for a D'Inc 4G since I don't care about using my phone for music and got a good deal on a Galaxy Nexus, so my D'Inc has been relegated to archive. Goodbye, old friend.

Today is the day. My RAZR MAXX is on the Fedex truck en route, so I will be retiring the Incredible I've had since release. It's been a great phone, even though I succeeded in smashing the screen within 6 weeks of getting it. Through forum help, I replaced it myself. Then rooted it for the first time 6-8 months ago. It will still be around as a spare.

Thanks, all.

I also pre-ordered a Galaxy S III. I still really like my Inc, it runs ICS like a champ and the giant battery I bought means I don't need to keep a charger in my office any more. In fact, if VZW was not making noises about ending grandfathered unlimited data I could see myself holding out with my Inc until Jellybean is released if not longer.

So, it was a blast, still the best phone community out there. I hope the GS3 will have a similar community.

I'm in the same boat here. Pre-ordered the GSIII today, but mainly because I didn't want to loose the unlimited data. The Incredible has been a great phone, and to be honest I too would have probably held out until Jellybean if not for the data issue.

Still, should be a nice upgrade. I was doing a lot of research on the Galaxy S III, and I figure I should be happy with it for a while.

Also preorderd a blue 16gb SIII today. I've been trying to hold out for the DINC4G however with no release date set in stone (even though it could be next week but who knows...), I've given up and with the S3 being $50 more for the rumored DINC4G price, figured to jump on it.

Now to find a use for my DINC after rather than sit in a drawer.

Incredible 4g should be out within 15 days and is expected before the SGIII. I can't imagine a 4.8" phone.

I'd wait for unlimited data announcement before I bought a phone worrying.

I have had the Incredible since it came out 4/29/10 (had that one pre-ordered). I had followed this phone for months on the threads on here (multiple thread closures, wondering if it is the Nexus, Bravo, Passion, or whatever else). I don't know if anybody from those times are still on here, but those were good times. And this has been a great phone.

I rooted it about 6 months after getting it, and I still think my Incredible is better than most phones out there now. But I've been eligible for an upgrade since December, and after passing on the Galaxy Nexus and Razr, I've finally pre-ordered that Galaxy S3, 32 GB in pebble blue. And the customer service rep on the phone sold it to me for free, only charging the $30 upgrade fee. So while I'm very excited about that, I do have a twinge of sadness because she is making me send it back to them.

I've been on here a lot and asked some questions, and learned from other peoples' questions too so thanks for all the help. I'll miss it.

They are giving me a 32 GB GS3 for free. All I had to pay was the $30 activation fee and then send my Incredible back when the new phone comes in. I can't complain since they're saving me $250

Ah, the Dinc, arguably the first Android smartphone to truly give the iPhone a run for it's money, certainly set a standard by which most "superphones" would be measured.

This was my first smartphone and provided an almost endless supply of "wow" factor. What's more, this device brought so many people together here on the android forums. There's lots of usernames and avatars I fondly remember as I'd scour this board for information.

The ol' Dinc is showing her age, though, and like a few previous posters I'm ready to give Samsung a chance now with the Galaxy S3.

Something kind of funny to consider: Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor was the pinnacle when the Dinc came out and now again Qualcomm is ahead of the game with the S4 Krait

I, too, preordered the SGS3 on the 6th. Not much longer for my Incredible. Preordered back in April 2010 when it first came out, rooted a year later, and loved every minute of it!

I got tired of the holdups on the Incredible 4G, especially with apple's latest games. I don't like motoblur, or touchwiz so I did the only logical thing. I'm now the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus! I love the amoled screen just like my Incredible had and I love pure android. I'm not even sure I would take sense over this in the future.

The S3 was mildly tempting but I couldn't justify waiting for it for the slightly more powerful cores. That and I called around and found the Nexus on special for $50 and with my upgrade it was free! Can't beat that.

I loved my Incredible and will probably be giving it to a friend once I don't have any issues with the Nexus for a week or two.

I was waiting on incredible 4g when I went to get thunderbolt for my wife. Found out i could get nexus for free for me and $20 for wife. So my kids are enjoying the incredibleS without call or text. I'll be around here til the lights go out but I now have the nexus. Like it a lot.
