Tongue Sense of humor today

Fellow Incredimaniacs,
Just wanted to give you a heads up that i got to work today and realized i accidentally left my sense of humor at home on the kitchen counter. Because i don't have it with me i won't be able to correctly interpret April Fools jokes correctly unless it's 100%, absolutely, undeniably, clear that you're making a joke by Titling you post "April Fools" and putting in a lot of wink's and smiley's.

I would hate to misinterpret your jovial intentions as an attempt to really mislead this thread or its community with false information during a time as sensitive as this one.

I think everyone is with me when i say keep it fun, but keep it honest, especially today (and for that matter, every day). Tread lightly, i head Banlandia has vacancy.

Bad April Fool's Joke. I am pretty sure that is the photoshop phone someone posted here forever ago that has been making it's way around the intrawebs. Fail one.

You screwed up the viewing on the page and I now have to side scroll at 6:45 am when no human being should be forced to scroll two ways. Fail two.

Pulled the trigger and just ordered a Droid to arrive tomorrow. That should keep me calm until the day the Incredible arrives. Is the return policy 30 days from activation, arrival or ordering it?

Having said that I remember from a post about 5-50 pages ago someone said that apps you purchase are tied to your Google account. Therefore, on your new phone all you would have to do is go to the android market and re-download the apps you already purchased.

Can someone with an android phone confirm this?

That is true. Once you buy you own! I have to re-download them from the market but am not required to purchase them.

I may send that Incredible picture to Verizon. Chaos will ensue.

Me: Hello I'd like to order the HTC Incredible
Rep: Um...that phone does not exist...
Me: Really, check out this link (link to picture)
Rep: Where did you find that? I'm going to lose my house!!

Morning guys. THIS IS NOT A JOKE (or even that big of a deal) but when I drove by my VZW store on the way to work, the droid ad in the window was down. There was something else. I couldn't tell what it was. I was at a distance and there was some dew/moisture build-up on the window (I was stopped at a red light). TO ME, it looked almost like the N1. No lie. HOWEVER, I checked google.com/phone and nada and I seriously doubt it was the N1. It just looked like it, so I am thinking they put an old Eris or new Eris ad up. I do not know for sure.

I am NOT trying to get anyone's hopes up or spread false info, so TIFWIW! I just wanted to give everyone a heads up and be on the lookout for new ads or promo materials.

On my drive into work this morning I was slightly dismayed upon hearing a Droid Does commercial on the radio. I understand marketing can go a bit longer than promos sometimes and that the Droid isn't going to stop selling anytime soon, but it still made me :-/. Kinda like they must not be gearing up for Inc ads... at least not this week.

Regarding that comment about a Droid commercial on the radio, I just don't see how they can keep pumping advertising dollars into a campaign for a phone that's entering its 6th month of existence. I know Apple does that, but they just have the one model, it's perennially updated, and they're the manufacturer.

None of these factors are true for Verizon, so why keep embarrassing themselves trying to pimp last year's "new" hardware?

I saw a new palm commercial last night and I read on here earlier where there is a new palm promo? I hope an announcment is soon, I don't want to wait until the 19th for an announcment. A release, sure, but announce this biddy already!

Because they can still make money on uneducated consumers who think the droid is still the hotness

I know it's fake. I've already been to VZW and testman this morning. I'm fighting the urge to run and check. False hope sucks. Especially when you *know* it's false but still can't help it. Kinda like your 16th birthday. You know there is no car. But you gotta look.

I think that's primarily because at the present time, the Moto Droid is the best they have. They're legitimately putting their best foot forward in that regard. We also don't and can't know why things are taking as long as they are as outsiders looking in. We can only hope sooner rather than later. I'm sure they have their reasons for doing things the way they are, I just happen to disagree with their decisions to sit back and let other carriers run away with all of these awesome phones. I'm kinda torn actually. I want an awesome phone like the Incredible, for sure, but i know that if Verizon actually does what we all want them to do there will be very, very little real competition for them. They'll essentially have a monopoly on the US market... and I hate monopolies.

Default Just dipping my feet here...

Just wanted to say hi and thank you for a great community. I've been following the forum for about three weeks and have found all the information very informative and the sometimes witless banter amusing.
I was in a Verizon store last night to upgrade my wife's storm 1 to a Curve... I'm pretty sure because it was "lavender" (not purple as I was promptly informed). Anyway, I tried picking the guys brain about the incredible and got absolutely nowhere. He said he doesn't even believe it's coming out until its in his hand. I asked him if he follows the phone/technology sector personally, outside of work and he stated he did. He just seemed so timid about the phone. I just don't understand how you can work for a company and not have a grasp on whats going on around you. He stated I was not the first person to ask. He also went on to say that the iphone will NEVER happen on Verizon. I started to explain to him that Verizon's own CEO was quoted as saying they were in talks a few months ago. He rebutted saying the Wall Street Journal had bad sources at which point I ended the conversation. Wouldn't you just say I can't talk about it if you weren't allowed to?

AF, I think we are real close to announcment..

Look at the facts:

`A member posted a week or so ago that his friend was working on the first commerical for the incredible

`The inventory picture showing 150k on order

`NKT had his system updated with more specs like a week or so ago

`Not 100% accurate, but we have had numerous reports of CSRs saying 2 weeks

`Lots of speculation and rumors of a mid April announcment/release

`The droid BOGO is over/ending and droids are showing up "out of stock". What better time to launch a new android?

`Reports test models have been in stores with some management messing with the phone

`Reports of training beginning

Anything else to add that an announcment seems soon (possibly next week)?

I know some of those points are highly subjective and could be lies, but I am trying to stay on the positive side of this

droids are back in stock. The assumption they went out of stock because of the 2.1 release was correct it seems. I am still waiting for the droid

hahaha I am just trying to put a positive spin on this thread and re-state the major info. that has come up over the past 1-2 weeks since CTIA.

I think most of us can agree an announcment feels real close. VZW has done some crazy *hit, but I have to think these are mostly ready to go and VZW is waiting to drop the hammer.

2 more points to add:

`NKT is expecting more of an ad campaign than we all originally thought

`The "load" info. that was brought up yesterday, pointing to the device getting finalized. NKT also pointed out HTC has a plan in place for devices that have been manufactured, but not released that need updated.

The good thing about this forum is I get this feeling of empowerment from talking to all of you. I feel like 1 big sports team or army platoon.

I'd love to go on a high ropes course with you guys haha. Then we'd see what kind of teamwork we have

great! JUST when I was really starting to like my Droid (20 days into it).


oh well ... just one more piece of evidence and back to VZW the Droid goes. It looks like it's safe to say the Incredible is pretty close .. but, I'd love a little more proof. Please let this week end on a big find!

They also give you a free $25 accessory kit. Just curious as to why this hasn't been brought up in here before.

Yes stores like that as well as sams when they sell phones they can take the hit if someone wants to return the phone. The likely hood they return the phone is very small so they can offer this awesome return policy.

As for their free accesories they can also take the hit since their prices on the phone are little higher than lets say retail store (best buy) or auth retail dealer (actual store) they can say here is your BlueTooth for free.

I bought one of my phones from Sams few years back for a cheap price and got all the stuff included free(car charger, leather case, BT headset, and so on) It was a great deal.

I know if you have been with your provider for 2 years and ready to upgrade Best Buy has some of the best deals i have seen in a long time!! Most of their phones are free or under $50 After seeing these deals i can just goto walmart after and get the other stuff super cheap like car charger for $8 and case for $10 and so on.

`NKT had his system updated with more specs like a week or so ago

`Not 100% accurate, but we have had numerous reports of CSRs saying 2 weeks

`Lots of speculation and rumors of a mid April announcment/release

`The droid BOGO is over/ending and droids are showing up "out of stock". What better time to launch a new android?

`Reports test models have been in stores with some management messing with the phone

`Reports of training beginning

Anything else to add that an announcment seems soon (possibly next week)?

I know some of those points are highly subjective and could be lies, but I am trying to stay on the positive side of this

Actually reading this post makes me feel less confident that a release is imminent. It basically points out that all of this anticipation for a release soon is built almost entirely on speculation. Aside from the phones in warehouse and NKT's personal experience, everything else in this list is completely specualtive or no longer true (like the droid being out of stock, for example). All of the other rumors going about have been unconfirmed and as time passes, the likelihood of them being false continues to grow.

Having said that, I'm still siked for the phone. I still want it. I'm still waiting for it. I'll wait as long as I have to or until something equal to or greater than comes along. I just don't see any real reason to believe that a release is right around the corner or even in "two weeks"(anyone seen The Money Pit?)

Well, I'm on probation now.....but not from the mods......from my wife. If I can, I will try to report in as soon as she goes to sleep. I am traveling to Pittsburgh Mills and they have a Verizon store there. If I get some TOOL CSR, I might be on the news tonight.

Where is everyone?! Stop hittin' the snooze button AF fam! It's a great day out, get up! Feel alive! Go for a run, take a walk, lay out in the sun. Do something nice for someone else today, something small. Make breakfast or dinner for your significant other. Buy the lovely person who rings you out at the grocery store some flowers. Hold the door for your classmates after class. DON'T get stressed sitting in traffic on the way home from work. The weekend is almost here and the next few days are gonna be good, with or without incredible news!

Hahahaha, its that aspect of team suffering that pulls us all together. We all bitch about the sloppy job VZW is doing, but we bitch together.

I for one am actually kind of pumped for all the cool threads that will get started once the Incredible comes out - tips and tricks, home screen pictures, etc.. I told my girlfriend about it last night and she gave me one of those "oh that sounds really cool but actually I dont care" looks.

The true rumors, NKTs, the on order are the MOST important. I'd rather have 2 important confirmed rumors, than several speculation rumors, ya know? I just put everything into one post. I wouldn't get down on it, stay positive, the important stuff is looking better and better every day!

I'm surprised there isn't more of a buzz going on here...right on the front page of Phandroid it says the Incredible is in warehouse. Unless it's April Fools...that means very close...yes?

She doesn't get it If it was a Victoria's Secret thread or Coach thread she'd be all for it

Then again, if it was Victoria's Secret, we might ALL be for it

Do you have real experience in the Motivational Speaking area? Or are you just dabbling?
