I recently upgraded to the Inc.4G putting my original Inc. from 2010 in my nightstand drawer.

I didn't have any problems with my original Inc. from day one. I upgraded simply because I could, my two years was up.

I wanted the latest and greatest, I liked the Inc.4G since it was similar to my original.

Actually, the 4G smokes the original in my opinion.

Do you still use your original dinc for anything?

I guess I can finally post here...

Finally did the same thing: Ordered a Dinc 4G to replace my original, which I've had since pre-ordering the original one (And waiting with everyone while they shipped incrementally...remember that? LOL)

I have been having tons of problems...photos being saved in random places....photos deleting themselves...reboots...apps disappearing....I loved this phone, but it's about that time. I'm happy to be sticking with the Incredible family so far...we shall see how that goes.

Not really....

When I upgraded from my Eris to the Incredible, I used my Eris as a wireless keyboard/mouse on my home theater system (using WiFi and an app I downloaded) for a while.

Now both phones are sitting in my desk drawer with several other phones over the years. My still all-time-fave in that drawer ? My Motorola Star-Tac (one analog and one digital). My worst ? The Samsung Juke.

Looking in that drawer brings back memories, I buy WAY too many phones. I even have my original phone in there... a Motorola Flip.

Well, after a long 2 years and 8 months with the DiNC, it was time to say goodbye yesterday. I've had it since launch day and it's been a great phone for me. But the 3G speeds were getting too cumbersome for productive day-to-day usage. So the wife and I both picked up Samsung Galaxy S3s yesterday at the Best Buy $49 sale. So far, so good. I'm still getting used to this huge screen!

Farewell my old friend! Gone, but not forgotten. I'll probably give it to the kids to play games on.

Long time lurker. Felt my first post belonged in this thread as I held a Dinc for almost two years with hardly an issue.

I have moved on to Gnex which I really, really like(love). However, I will always consider myself part of the Incredible family.

To those that have offered so much of your knowledge.... I thank you all!!! This site is great because of all your hard work.

Just checking in to see if the lights are still on in this thread. It's interesting to see that there are still some using the Dinc. That speaks to the quality of phone it is/was. While I have moved on more than a year ago to my Gnex, I'm currently counting down the days until August 15, 2013 to get what's new.

I'm still using my Dinc. Would a new phone be fun? Sure. Do I need one? Nope. The Dinc still does everything I need it to.

I retired my DInc a month ago for a Note 2. I absolutely LOVE this phone. I got used to the size in a couple days & couldn't see myself going back to a smaller phone now. I don't have to charge my phone every night & regularly have charge cycles where I get near 7hours of screen on time!

Haha its funny that many of us are still on the same schedule for an update. My only fear now is not getting the latest and greatest next go around because it'll lose me my unlimited data. I may be using lesser and/or used phones from now on idk.

Default Fond farewell

The time has finally come for me to say goodbye to my beloved Dinc. After dealing with increasing crashes and reboots, laggy responses, and other problems, I picked up a Note 2 yesterday.

Farewell, HTC Droid Incredible- I knew thee from when the Nexus One was supposed to be coming to Verizon. Pardon the horrible pun, but you truly were the first incredible phone I'd ever owned.

Gone, but not forgotten, into the desk drawer you go. Until we meet again, old friend!

I'm still here, still using the Incredible (rooted, S-Off, and on the last stable CM build released). Granted, my eye has wandered to the DNA, and to the HTC One that's supposed to be coming, but my phone is still going strong (even though it freezes once in a while and I have to pull the battery). I don't know that I'm ever going to find a phone that I love as much as I've loved the Inc though.

It has been a long time my old friend. Your habit of perpetually having no space and only functioning when you felt like it finally did you in. I have replaced you with a newer, younger, slimmer, more fun new girl. The divorce papers have been filed. Her name is "Motarola Razr M" and she is hot and fast.. not like you... Good bye!

My next phone I will likely move home phone and internet to Verizon and I will pay less and have plenty of data for my needs.

For now my Nexus is great (haven't unlocked yet) and my kids love their Incredible media devices.

Wondering how many Dinc owners there are still about. I'm ready to move on to the Droid Maxx from my Gnex. 20 months seem to come and go so quickly around here!

Default Still with the original Dinc

Hi. I'm still using my original Dinc (the one with the AMOLED screen which I'd per-ordered and received in late April 2010). But it's been buggy - constantly has the low-on-space error; has the "update available" message come up every once in a while but when I click on "reboot and install" nothing happens (so I have to click on cancel).

I've been looking for new phone - I intend to buy it as full price so I can keep my unlimited data and not have to sign a 2-year contract. I used a spreadsheet to compare Samsung GS4 price with a new 2-year contract & new monthly rates on Verizon Wireless website against paying full price & keeping my current monthly rates. At the end of two years I would have paid about $200 or so more by paying full price & keeping my current monthly rates (not to mention my unlimited data) and my employer % discount in both options. I hope to do a similar comparative analysis when the HTC One finally comes to Verizon.

What are others thinking of buying as far as a new phone goes (besides the Droid Maxx mentioned by OP)?

Thanks!

Not sure if you know this but if you have any other line in your account that has a limited/tiered plan, you can transfer your upgrade to that line and get it at contract price and then transfer that phone back to your unlimited line and keep your unlimited data. That's what I'm doing. My son has a 2GB plan and I'm transferring my upgrade to his line then transferring it back after I upgrade.

Default still kicking

Got my Dinc on release day and it is still breating. Frequent factory reboots and twitchy performance are starting to set in so I suspect our time is limited. No complaints, it is my first smartphone and has, until recently, been uber reliable. Been eligible for an update since 2012. Assuming the Dinc holds out long enough it will be replaced with either a HTC One or LG G2.

The Dinc will become the property of a 3-year old or donated to charity once the day finally comes. Time to let someone else enjoy my first smart phone.

My day one Inc lives again! (It seems all I do is post in threads started by CBF LOL). I sold my GNex to help fund my Droid Maxx so I reactivated my Inc to hold me over until the 20th. While the nostalgia is awesome, it is a great phone, I'm definitely ready for the 20th to get here.

I'm still here too. (Im)Patiently waiting for the One to show up on Verizon. Unfortunately, my Inc is dying - the battery life is getting terrible, it's heating up quickly, and there are memory issues (there isn't enough onboard to run the apps I'm running, with the updates that have been pushed) that freeze the phone and I have to do a battery pull at least once a day to force reboot. I know I could downgrade some of the apps, but I don't want to. Oh yeah, the last time I accidentally dropped it, the battery cover cracked on one corner, so there's that too.

I've been eligible for a new phone for 16 months now, and I'd really like to just get it over with.

Farewell, my sweet little Incredible. You have served me oh so well. I am currently backing up all of your lovely stuffs, and am moving what makes sense to move over to my new phone, your younger sibling, The One.

Thank you so much you beautiful little thing, and you will forever be:
My first smartphone, the best portable piece of tech I could depend on, and the reliable companion for many a long drive and long meeting.

You will be safe and snug in my drawer, occasionally run on wifi to ensure you're still good, and will be factory reset so that I can have you as a backup in case I need you for anything (like when I root those pesky LG Ally's the daughters have)

I see how having multiple plans help to buy a phone at contract price and still keep the unlimited data by transferring the phone. But unfortunately I don't have multiple lines - it's just my individual line. I stopped by at a Verizon Wireless store and also chatted with online customer support - both places told me that if I buy a new phone at full price, I can still keep my unlimited plan even if the new phone is a 4G (my current Droid Incredible is only 3G). They told me that the trick is to not sign-in to your account when you order the phone on the Verizon website. If you sign-in and then order it, even if you select "no-contract" it will force you to chose from their new individual/family plans since my current plan is no longer offered.

Anyway, I placed an order for the HTC One on the Viva Movil (Jennifer Lopez's website) today. It is cheaper there, whether you order it with or without contract. Plus standard shipping was free and there was no tax (to ship to Atlanta). I'll see how it goes with the transfer/activation once I get it and post an update of my experience here.

Finally replaced my Dinc with an HTC One. Been waiting a long time for a phone that was enough better than my Dinc to justify the trouble of getting set up on a new phone. Looks like the One is the "one". (G s4 a close second). I only wish Verizon had gotten it back in the Spring like everyone else. Bye bye sweet Dinc, you've served me well.

Well I finally did it and ordered a Galaxy S4. Going to miss the DINC, but I hope I am going to a better place. Silly DINC kept running out of space, having to be rebooted, and stopped running a few apps. It was time.

Default good bye old friend

As of Sept 19 my dINC has been put out to pasture. Replacement was a difficult choice and I thought it was going to be the HTC One in metallic blue (what a looker) but in the end the LG G2 won me over. Hoping for the same wonderful 3.5 years out of the G2. So far battery life is more than I could have hoped for and all is good. I will miss my first ever smart phone and droid phone but it will serve me well as something for the kids to use and abuse instead of my new baby.

I'm still using my Dinc. Rooted, S-off with stock+ v3.01 jermaine151. The phone still does everything I need. My gf is giving up her Inc2 so I might take that over. I don't want to lose my unlimited data plan

My Nexus 5 arrived yesterday. I will finally be retiring my Dinc that I preordered and received on release day, over 3.5 years ago. This certainly set the record for me, and while I am excited about my N5, I will miss my Dinc. Except for battery life, it's been the best phone ever.

Thought I'd swing by here and show off my new phone. Can you tell I miss my incredible?



Btw I still have if anyone's looking for one in nice condition.

I thought I'd leave couple pics here of my Droid Incredible inspired Moto X. Sorry about the quality, my Galaxy Nexus takes crappy pics.
