Default Official Goodbye Dinc Thread

With many of us at the early upgrade pricing and our last NE2 pricing within grasp, I thought it apropos to make a place for those of us that have gained so much and contributed to this forum.

I know many will be jumping to the Vigor, Prime or Razr forums soon (as I have) but before you go, please stop and pay your respects to what is probably the most impactful phone any of us here have ever had and the most EPIC forum and thread that AF has ever had.

As you say goodbye, tell us where you are going and what phone you are leaning towards now.

Last one out, turn out the lights.

I'm actually eligible to upgrade now, but have no plans to do so. There aren't any phones out there that are as attractive as the DInc is.

I'll be using my Dinc until it dies, whether that's through my next renewal or whether that means my plan is forced to change. I have no interest in any of the current phones or any of the phones coming out in the future unless someone makes a phone with a similar form factor. I have no desire for a phone bigger than the Dinc and none of the phone manufacturers seems to have any interest in making anything smaller than 4.0-4.3" right now.

And on that day that my Dinc dies, then I will either switch back to a basic phone or see if another carrier has any phones similar in size to the Dinc and switch to them. For me personally, size is more important than power and everything Verizon has to offer right now is too big for my liking despite them being more powerful than my Dinc.

Galaxy Nexus @ release or very shortly after depending on root status and how fruitful the money tree is at the time. Looking forward to it especially since I learned we'll be getting 4G in mid November.

It's been a great ride, made a lot of friends. Many of which I'm sure to cross paths with again in the "Prime" forum. Already have seen many of you lurking there.

In the same boat. Unfortunately, Apple seems to be the only company committed to the tight, compact size. anyway, my DInc does everything I need it to do.

+1 here... Have no interest in any of the new phones coming out. Do not want a 4.3" phone and the Inc2 is not worth a new 2 year contract. I will stick with the Inc until it dies. When it does I will do the exact same thing. Basic phone or look for another carrier if Verizon still has no phones that interest me.

My upgrade comes at the end of January so I have some more time on my hands. I will be upgrading to the Prime when it comes out. In the meantime I'm hoping we get some CM8 love before the end so I can test drive the car before driving off the lot.

I'm the same way. 4" is just way too big. I'm hearing the new Nexus phone will be close to 5 inches. It's just insane. I can't put my hand around it. I can't reach my thumb across the screen. I'm not interested. If I want/need a big screen, I'll get a tablet.

Yeah, I'm keeping my Inc for now. I'm up for an upgrade currently, and my hubby has been up for one for a year now. He still has his Moto Droid (yes, the first one) but he has lots of trouble with it. I think he just didn't want to have to make a decision as to which new Droid to get! There just aren't any sexy phones out there right now and I'm going to wait.

Assuming all goes as planned, I'll be part of the mass exodus on December 28 (that date will make sense to the pre-orderers from the original epic Incredible thread). As long as no glaring weaknesses are exposed between now and then, it'll be the Vigor for me. Now, if the Vigor turns out to not be what everyone is expecting, then I'll still be here... no Samsung or Motorola phones for this guy, thanks.

I've had my DInc for over a year and it has been a great phone. I've had to get 4 replacements because of bad speakers but other than that the phone has been solid. I've been eligible for upgrade and I am going to test the waters of iOS 5 on the i4s for my upgrade. I figure I can probably get more for that if I decide to sell it than I can the Prime or something else. There are 16 smartphones in my family and extended family and 15 are iPhones (I'm only one on Android). I may be back to Android but I wanna see what the iOS experience is all about.

I can upgrade now and I am not.
When my area gets 4g I will wait until the next phone I like is safely rooted then grab it.
I want a phone with the largest screen possible without being obnoxiously big.
Right now I have my eye open for the Vigor, but even that seems like too soon.
There is nothing out right now with specs that impress me enough to get rid of my Dinc.
I bought it on launch day and it has worked flawlessly since day 1.

I like the thread idea OP. I'm stopping by one last time because I purchased an iPhone 4S yesterday to replace my original HTC Droid Incredible and I came back to learn how to unroot/restore back to original so I can sell it!

The Incredible has been an awesome phone for me, but like all good things, there must be a time when it comes to an end. I've been rooted for quite a while now and have been installing and playing around with custom roms ever since. Most recently I was on CM7.1. The customization of Android is incredible, and it has been fun to tinker everything. Good luck to all of you in your future (phone) endeavors.

Why unroot to sell it? Leave it root and offer to unroot if buyer wants it stock.

+1, in fact you have you potential buyer right here

Right now I have the ThunderBolt but with all of this thing's problems I have been toying around with buying another DInc, then selling my BlunderBold on eBay, and saving the cash from blunderbolt for the Vigor.

So JPiLLa, you have a PM

This is a sad thread...LOL

Everyone in the Incredible forum helped me to decide that was the phone for me. I preordered and got it at launch. It has worked flawlessly, but I now want a phone with a bigger screen. I can upgrade now, and I'm just waiting for the Vigor/Rezound to launch. My DH will be taking over my Incredible until he decides what to do about getting and Iphone4s or waiting on an Iphone5.

I still have a year before my upgrade. I'm happy with my Dinc and hope to have it until it dies. I love the size and don't really care to get anything larger. In another year, I may change my mind though. The Vigor sounds fascinating, but I don't feel it's enough of an upgrade to make me want to switch.

Just cancelled my Verizon account and switched to Sprint and got the iPhone. Lower bill, and this phone is amazing so far.

Sad to see the Incredible go, but its about time to let it go to another owner. I am selling it locally on craigslist with all my accessories. Hope it finds a good home.

Exactly the same here. I never thought I'd switch from HTC, but the Galaxy Nexus has blown me away in terms of specs. I also prefer a bigger screen as I watch a lot of video on the phone between riding the train and at the gym. I have loved my Dinc since launch, but I'm tired of dealing with various bugs inherent to the phone (especially managing the "low space" bug on almost a daily basis). I also won't miss waiting for updates that are long past their due date (that come botched). With the Galaxy Nexus, I know this phone will always be at the front of the line update wise and I like the idea of having a pure Android phone. I'm also looking forward to better battery time.

I'll miss HTC Sense though, I really dig it. Although I'm sure I can customize the Prime to do just about anything Sense did (and probably more).

Really?!?!

For me, getting rid of the 'low space error' once and for all is enough

Plus... i love this phone. It is time though for me to move on... Hopefully the Vigor drops soon.

I will say that the Inc section is still the All-time most posted in on AF and we have/had one of the greatest communities ALL TIME!!
From the Original Incredible thread till here recently.
All good things must end though, sadly it has been rather dead in here lately. I will always keep my eye on this section though and the people i've met along the way.


Still Incredible in my heart!

Default I too will be sad when I move on

I had to get 3 replacement phones before I got one that didn't overhead or whatever the boot-loop bug was. In spite of that, I have always loved this phone.
The Nexus specs are drawing me in, but I am not buying anything until I can hold it in my hand and see how it fits in my pocket.
See ya'll on the other side.

Agreed, I'm probably not going to be a "day" one person this time for my next phone

The Vigor(I refuse to call it rezounds) and the Nexus Prime both sound like extremely good phones and I'm torn between them...

Like what the other people said, the size/weight of the phone are going to be features we all miss when we are someday forced to change. I tried the Dinc2 for a few days, and though objectively speaking it has improvements, it just wasn't the same.

There are some products out there that have a certain unique design that leads to having a loyal following as technology advances, and to nostalgia once the product is no longer available. This will be another such product, like the Motorola Star Tac - which phone is a relic by today's standards, and yet there has been nothing quite like it since.

Manufacturers will probably not have the guts to bring back this form factor when all the marketing "data" points to the new, larger form factor.

Yes, the iPhone now has that small form factor, but it is heavy by comparison. The Dinc is small and lightweight without feeling cheap.

I've still got a few months but I've also been contemplating what I do at my renewal mark. Right now, I am counted among those who do not want a bigger phone. My original dInc is a nice size device and everything else on the market just seems too big. Lying around here at home we have 3 motorolas (r2d2, X, 3) none of which impress me. I find them all just a little too heavy (especially the ones with the keyboard) and they all feel very very unbalanced in my hand. Speed-wise, they all seem much faster, but what good is that if I'm constantly dropping the thing or cramping up when holding it? Thin like the new motorola razr which I"m hoping to be able to demo in a few days is nice but when they make it thin and then add a few mm to height and width that just defeats the purpose for me.

And someone else mentioned the iphone - yes - right now it's still small, but specs on the next (if they are to be believed) have it much larger.

I"m just waiting and hoping that something comes along, though I really think I'll probably just keep this as long as I can.

I wish I would have found this forum earlier. I finally rooted a couple months ago after having my phone for almost 2 years. Found this forum, rooted, and was enjoying my Inc even more. Now this forum is dying fast. Seems most are already moving on. I don't know if I am ready to move on yet. Hopefully when I do I will be able to find all the company from here again on another forum.

I'm getting the feeling I may be the last poster on here when the dust settles. I plan on trading in my DInc when I can get a HTC phone that is 3.5" and runs ICS. Also needs NFC and a good camera.

you may be waiting forever, I really don't expect to see anymore 3.5-3.7" smart phones.

I'm afraid you are right though I wish you weren't. I simply can't use a 4.3" > phone. I can't reach the buttons with my thumb. It sucks. I looked at the DInc2 and I could live with that form factor. That's about the limit though.

Ya, I am afraid seeing what is coming out.... I think your right... That is also a bummer for me. I may actually pick up a Garmin for the vehicle and go back to a standard phone. I don't want to carry around a 4.3" phone or bigger. iPhone4S maybe..

Yeah, I have fairly large hands so I don't think 4.3 will be a issue for me. Not sure I'd want to go any bigger.

It's funny you mention a Car GPS, that's exactly why I want a bigger phone then the Dinc, is so I can use it as a GPS in the car, I find the Dinc. too small

When I used the Inc's GPS I never really looked at the screen. 99% of the time the screen was off, I just listened for the GPS voice to tell me when to turn.

I keep looking at the iPhone and it is a nice phone, but there are so many things with Android that I love and have come to the point that I need. I look at ICS and all the things it's got and I find that I really, really, really want those features. I just want them in a phone that it doesn't take two hands to use. Is that unreasonable?

I hear ya, I think about the iPhone, but don't know if I could actually do it. But if in the next year for android all you see is 4.3" or bigger, I don't know, I might have to go iPhone or back to a basic phone. Look at the Samsung that ICS is getting put on, 4.6"?? Seriously, even bigger?? My other issue is this, when you see ICS and you know it is coming in the near future on phones in the US, why spend and upgrade on an HTC Vigor or Mot Razer, when you have no real insurance those phones will ever see ICS. Look at our Inc and GB... Still not on our phone and Google is already talking and showing off ICS. I will have to say that is one good thing about Apple and iOS. When they have a new version, the old phones get the update if they can run it. iOS 5 is getting pushed back to iPhone 3GS. Not praising Apple by any means.. just saying… I know Android is like Windows, it is on many devices made by many manufactures and it is up to those manufactures to make the new OS work on their device. Sorry for the rant..

My Incredible has been flawless from day one! This phone has been everything I expected of it and THEN some! The wife's Incredible has been the same - perfect. While she has no desire to upgrade in the near future, I have been leaning heavily towards the Galaxy Nexus - but I haven't entirely ruled out the Moto Razr either. I plan on tinkering with both of these upon their release and just take it from there. I'm happy to say that if neither of these two "do it" for me, then I'll gladly hold on to my Incredible until something else comes along.

With that said, I'm very curious to see next year's batch of phones that will feature the much smaller, but more powerful, Krait processors. The biggest single drawback with the Incredible has always been its very poor battery life. So - with the batteries not getting substantially bigger (and I hate the ones that require the phone to have a bigger back case), it stands to reason that the best way to obtain better battery life is for the processors to get smaller, and thus, more efficient - saving battery life! Enter Krait. Curious?

Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor details revealed - SlashGear

Also, I'd like to have a little bigger screen - something between 4" and 4.5" maybe - so I'll have to get a feel for the newer, bigger phones firsthand, prior to purchase.

So as of right now, I am firmly on the fence! I'll see what comes to pass, but, overall, I'd say I am 90% satisfied with my Incredible! Great phone!!

What about this one?

Xperia? mini | Android Powered Smartphone - Sony Ericsson

Small in dimension, big on experience. The Xperia mini fits in your pocket, so you never miss a thing. Record your memories in HD video. Change your status and chat with your friends. Love music? Have a favourite game? Personalise the four corners of the home screen with 16 apps. But first you'll need to choose from over 250,000 on Android Market.

Or this one (you can wear it as a watch):

(EDIT: oh, but it's apparently not a phone)

Call and try to get an early upgrade. You may have to call a few times on different dates/time to talk to different reps. That's how I got my DInc. I called them and got them to upgrade me a month early.

I've grown attached to my Incredible, but will be parting ways once the Galaxy Nexus makes a landing. Not sure if I want to sell it yet. I'm always a fan of keeping 'backup' phones and the only ones I have now are either Motorola flip phones are my old EnV Touch 3. So just in case (God forbid) something goes wrong with my Nexus and I cannot afford a replacement at that time, I'll be able to hop back on my Incredible as a safe backup. I love this phone. Would hate to have to give it up entirely.

I must say that the DINC was a great phone for me...up until about 1.3 years after I first got it (July-August 2011 or so). As my first smartphone, I thought it was very well designed, good size, nice features. Definitely ahead of the game and a trend setter. But after a little over a year problems started--the up volume button became unresponsive, no gingerbread, my optical joystick does not work. Overall I was very happy with the phone, just wish that it lasted a few months longer. I will be moving on to the Galaxy Nexus once it is released and very excited for some of the new features.

I take back my former statement where I said I'll be ditching the Dinc for the Galaxy Nexus. I'm not as impressed with the Galaxy Nexus as I thought I would be with the specs now official. The lack of an SD slot really kills it for me, so it looks like I'll be holding onto my Dinc going into 2012. I just refuse to use my upgrade for a phone that isn't truly at the top level of phone tech. The Incredible was just that in 2010, and I have no issues waiting a little while longer for my next phone to "wow" me.

I agree. The very things that Android has going for it over iDevices is the fact that they have expandable memory, replaceable battery, flash and unlocked bootlaoders.

Now manufacturers and retailers are doing all they can to take those options away. Verizon forcing locked bootloaders, Samsung doing away with SD cards, Moto doing away with replaceable batteries. When will Flash be done away with? We all might soon be carrying around an a handset that is too similar to Apple.

I have LOVED my Dinc, but it's time to move on. I stopped in Verizon yesterday and ordered the new iphone 4S. My wife bought me a Macbook Pro 2 weeks ago and I took it in to the Apple Store yesterday for some training. One of the guys in there had the new iphone and showed me all of the cool things it can do. Plus, it syncs seamlessly with my new laptop. This is one of my biggest complaints about the Android platform.

I was impressed with the Siri function of the iphone. I know it looks gimmicky, but it worked flawlessly. I spend alot of time in the car and the voice to text functions are far above what I've seen out there.

So, I'm going to make the move to the dark side. I never thought it would happen, but I'm going to give it a whirl (at least for 29 days).

My son still has his Dinc and I'll still lurk on here to find out any new info.

I thought they shortened the "sampling" period to two weeks.

My brother has an iPhone 4 and keeps telling me I need to get one because it's "cool". I've looked at it, but I find that I'm dependent on things like widgets and not being tethered to a computer. I can't bring myself to go there, though I like the form factor.

One of my biggest problems with the iDevices are that you HAVE to use a computer to get them set up. With Android you aren't ever required to attach them to a computer.

I think that has gone away with the 4S, but I'm not sure. I just love not having to have iTunes on my computer. What a PITA that is.

Jarvis works really well for calls and texting. It is still being developed but is excellent. I haven't tested siri but it wouldnt shock me if Jarvis was as good and I bet it will be better eventually.

IPhone is a great phone but android allows me to make my phone exactly what I want not exactly what ithey iwant
