Yea its pretty weird. Also I checked testman and vzw site. Like a couple minutes ago it had a new layout. And on testman, the tabs on the bottom showed the droid, eris, b1g1, and something else, but now on testman, it won't even load the new layout i saw and doesnt show those ads

She just called them and she called me back, they said that they only give USPS discount for the primary line (i knew this) but they don't give discount on anything else like Data plans, i read somewhere that you should still get discount on data plans, unless the discount is only for the primary line for data plans? basically, can't get discount on multiple data plans. Someone feel free to clarify.

Also for AT&T, once again, no discount for anything like data plans and text messaging plans but when i go online to do it, i can get discount still........

Idk, anyone feel free to help.

Oh yea, and for Sprint roaming. I heard they roam on Verizon towers for free?? my mom said her friend got charged?? I thought you only got charged if your roaming was more than half your minutes?
The discounts vary widely, but are offered to 1000s of companies. They typically vary between 12% and 27% (GE!).

The discount is off of the rate plan for the primary line, which will be the most expensive line. MANY co's also are given a data discount of 15-30%, off data packages, again for the primary line. An additional 25% ofo of accessories is almost always included.

Sprint has agreements to roam occassionally on Alltel & VZW towers. You can be in the condition called roaming without being charged (if ur carrier has an agreement) but u will be charged roaming should you pick up an unauthorized tower. VZW, however, has eliminated roaming fees, which I love. Either your phone will work or it won't, no worries about picking up an unfriendly tower.

I'm sticking to the idea that we won't see the Incredible before the 23rd of the month. Hell, I don't think we'll get an announcement about it either, it'll just be up for sale one morning; as well as sold out before anyone here finds out about it.

Really? Not saying I don't believe you, in fact I do, it's just that the rep at the store never said anything about it when I was asking about the plans a few weeks back when I started looking at phones. I get a 15% discount as well and even mentioned it when talking to the rep. That means that VZW would be the most expensive option for me once I count in data, even with my 15% "discount" versus paying standard prices elsewhere. I suppose I'll have to jump that hurdle when this phone finally comes out. This might be a deal breaker for me. I'll be sure to bring along some comparison material. I can only hope they throw the 'best network' in my face so I can point out the two times they unexplainably cut my service and I had to spend a few hours on the phone with them to get it straightened out. Or my complaints about not receiving all my txt messages and people getting a message kicked back saying I have premium msgs blocked when in fact I have nothing blocked and even the vzw website reflects this. Best network /= Best service

What the hell is that?

Looks like a bogus "news source" created by some guy tired of waiting for The Incredible. There's way too much emphasis on VZW taking too long with The Incredible for that to be even close to real.

Anyway... I just did a little googling to help give some historical background on this kind of stuff, and it's just like I recall.

This is VZW's official announcement of the HTC Touch Pro 2

Verizon Wireless Introduces The HTC Touch Pro2

Dated September 10, 2009. The phone was released September 11, 2009.

All you guys "losing hope" for a phone that we all KNOW exists, and we've all seen, and we now know is going into final testing... need to just chill. This is how VZW does things. Do not expect any announcement that the "phone is coming within a month" or anything like that. By the time Verizon makes an announcement, plan on having the phone in your hands within 48 hours.

I'd have to agree, but I'm not expecting to hear anything this month or next month either.

VZW isnt very secret about the fact that they are frequently the most expensive provider.

I hope that the sale is to get rid of all the old phones and make way for the new, but with verizon you never know.

Yup, that's why as soon as I posted it and then read it again, I realized what you did in your last sentence there and edited my post to notice your sarcasm of the company you were referring to

Really if you think about it isn't Verizon ALWAYS running Some kind of promotion? There have been lots of times also when one promotion has ended and 3 days later an almost identical one pops up i.e on Presidents day they had one of their netbooks ( the HP) for free that weekend only. That ended but it was back to free 3 days later. So promotions ending/starting etc. really probably dosn't mean a whole lot in regards to a new phone's release.

Let's hope that vzw just wanted to surprise us. But if this phone is so incredible why would they keep it in the dark just to release it suddenly.

Holding down the fort at 330am!

I was thinking about this and to me the logical reason would be that a phone as "incredible" as this one would cause many to buy it no matter what and they could make extra money by selling other phones before they release. And if people try to return, it seems they would now be stuck with a $35.00 charge as well. So for Verizon it's a win, win. Why release "official" information that will just cause all those that don't know about this new phone (or too antsy to wait) to not buy a phone. From a business perspective if you know you have a great phone and people are going to buy it no matter what, you try to get them in a situation where they will spend as much as possible (supply vs. demand). Think about how they are pushing the Droid and Eris and all the Palms, they know you'll buy the Incredible eventually. This way people spend full price on a product they could've had for half the cost (or whatever price it ends up being) by getting them to use their NE2 now. Verizon can't be blamed at all because nothing has been officially announced.

I don't think it makes them bastards either, just smart A-holes. And in no way would they announce the Iphone (if it ever does come to Verizon) because they know people will buy the Incredible and switch over full price if they want the Apple. I fully expect an announcement with an immediate or near immediate release. T

So is the Incredible being tested by this "council?" Which indicates an imminent release?

You can't really rely on testman. My testman theories:

1. It is just a test site by VZW to help make sure their layout can handle traffic and such.

2. It is a test site VZW made up to torment people like us. The techies/web designers made it up and watch this board for reactions. They started it as a joke and laugh their butts off at us but soon realize that with testman...They have the power!!

3. VZW has nothing to do with it and it's someone like IncrediblyAnnoying messing with us because they have no life of their own and a death wish.

From what I read the only thing that was wrong was that the Council doesn't approve the phones, but only provide feedback. That still doesn't necessarily change the fact that phones are announced shortly after feedback from the council.
Also, we know they haven't received their incredibles BUT nothing was mentioned in the post about them NOT receiving them this week. As far as I can tell, it's still valid and they will be receiving the phones sometime this week.

LMAO! Ok, let me say this...I AM A MEMBER OF THE VZW CUSTOMER COUNCIL. Usually the phone is announced.....then we get the phones to provide feedback. Again, we are NOT a part of the testing process. And remember, I was the one who told you that that info was not true, and he has changed it.

I don't know about you but I could really go for a new leaked picture or video of the Incredible... Anyone know a person who is getting the phone next week or earlier and have them take a picture of it? I just want to see it in the flesh and blood again not another render. Is that asking too much?

lol, maybe later. Ya never know. I am with the other people on here. I think this phone is going to appear really quickly. It's just gonna be announced and boom! available. I think marketing will come after.

If VZW doesn't market this phone heavily that could mean something else is coming sooner than later...

Looks like NKT hasn't even signed on since 4/4 - Maybe he is out having a life or something crazy like that?

Probably remember the days before cell phones, before phone booths, or home phones... back when you used your carrier pigeon

LOL, wow. I had to say it 20 times, but I think people still feel that we are part of the testing phase, and we have to get it before it is announced lol. I do hope we get it though.

Phases: Go into this thread knowing how large it is. Know that it is not all completely on topic. The OP, Anonimac, will make a best effort attempt at keeping THIS top post as up to date as possible on current news on the device. You are welcome to post here or create a new thread with information you have. The new thread will be kept on topic. This thread is sort of a lounge-news type thing and off-topic talk is acceptable so long as THIS POST contains all the important information on the thread.

not busting on you, I often feel the same as others that complain about off topic stuff. I also think it's fair to say that if a seq of off topic posts are growing too long, folks should create a separate thread...

Maybe NKT is on the council... and he's got his Incredible in hand right now, and so amazed by it, he can't be bothered by this lil ol forum.

That, or he's definetly tied up in a dank dirty verizon basement
