Long time lurker (like before page 200). I joined a few days ago to down load the UG just thought I would share my CSR story, and ask a question. I went to my local Verizon store to check mine and my second line updates, wanted to make sure they were both eligible. They are very good news for me. But the Rep as I was walking in was just finishing selling a Driod to someone who obviously doesn't obsess about these things (feel sorry for him,or myself not sure who yet). He then helped to check my lines and told me I'm not using my Friends and Fam so got me going said what phone can I get you? I said it's not out yet just wanted to check. He says ohhh you want the Nexus I said no Incredible he rolls his eyes and says that it hasn't even heard that the name has been confirmed. That it's not coming out this month, I don't believe a word he says so I said is it possible that it will come out at Best Buy first? Then to Verizon? Ohhh NO we still would have had training now. I know that you can't believe everything you read but I will trust crowd sourcing and this thread far more then a Verizon sales rep.
So end to this story he did say that if it does go to Best Buy first then I shouldn't get it there cause I can't use Verizon instore help if it breaks or whatever, I'd have to go to best buy's customer service (mind you I know they are commissioned so I know he has to be biased). What's everyones thought on this is it better to wait if Verizon doesn't get it on the 29?

And 7 pages (and everyone's life story...and possibly Mod involvement, thread closing, etc...) later it's over...

Issue is nobody skips to the last page or reads all the way before posting. We all can't wait to share our own info (i'm guilty myself) and some funny quip about it. So anyone's warning to stop posting, get back "on topic" (whatever that even is on this thread these days), etc... is basically pointless because in a matter of minutes you have 100-200 posts.

Having said that, lets let this current topic run its course, everyone go ahead and tell us whatever you want to tell us regarding your age but in the future lets be mindful of how EASY it is for something like this to get out of hand and avoid it!
Well I dont think anyone expects someone to wade through 600+ pages. But there is a "search this thread" feature that you can use. its one thing if 2 or 3 people repeat the same thing in a span of 4 minutes or so because they're typing their post up and won't see the others by the time they hit submit. But for something days or months ago just use the search this thread.

This will probably get me banned. But in all seriousness.. How can you guys even consider supporting a company run by a CEO who makes statements like this:

http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2010/04/verizon-ceo-studies-be-damned-us-is-tops-in-broadband.ars

Finally, if you're a high-bandwidth user of Verizon's smartphone data services, the company will soon hunt you down and throttle you. (The company has long had a maximum transfer limit on monthly data plans.)
Seidenberg: But when we now go after the very, very high users, the ones who camp on the network all day long every day doing things that—who knows what they're doing—those are the—
Murray: It's video, right? I mean, it's video.
Seidenberg: But those are the people we will throttle and we will find them and we will charge them something else.
??? Anyone?

I know how you feel. I bought an LG Voyager, the original "iPhone killer," just over two years ago, and I'm desperate for a change. I think I'll go for a one-year contract this time, though.

How many people here are planning to buy their HTC Incredibles with a one-year contract? Anybody going retail?

Waiting is all I've done for forever it seems. Since I decided to tryout Sprint in the meantime, a new option has opened up for me. After 1 week into this experiment, my service has been great and I've enjoyed all of the complimentary features of their Everything plan like Visual voicemail and GPS that I would have had to pay Verizon extra for. I think that I'm going to be waiting until June for the EVO now. But I'll still keep my eyes open to Incredible news in the meantime.

Can someone post the link to the ***Official HTC Incredible Thread***? I seem to have misplaced it. All I see here are people's ages, movie quotes and sports. I may just be a stickler, but I'm looking for a discussion about a new phone coming out called "Incredible" and it's made by a company called HTC. Any information on where I can find said link would be appreciated.

I just dont see any value in switching phones every year. I learn the thing, then dump it?? That doesnt make sense to me.
I've had my current phone for a long time and its a "smart"phone. Its fine but it aint the latest/greatest.
If this is obsolete as they say 6 months from now, who cares. It wont be obsolete for me. I dont a satisfaction index gap that closes that quickly.

But thats how I live.

Good luck.

i may go retail depending on the release date that my local verizon store has. i'm not sure verizons policy since i have a droid i'm wanting to return. if they will only let me exchange it for another phone and it doesn't come out til the 13th or whatever, retail at bb.

Good re-investments from beginning of 2009 plus a large down payment on this house after selling our previous and making double the purchase price in two years (before market crash). Really just lucky with house and investments but not complaining.

Can someone post the link to the ***Official HTC Incredible Thread***? I seem to have misplaced it. All I see here are people's ages, movie quotes and sports. I may just be a stickler, but I'm looking for a discussion about a new phone coming out called "Incredible" and it's made by a company called HTC. Any information on where I can find said link would be appreciated.
Sig has link, make sure u start at the beginning.

Trust me, my life is anything but boring . I'm living proof you don't need those things to be happy, and am very healthy.

I have many interests and talents that can keep me entertained for 10 lifetimes.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

I'm so lost guys.... what's with the anticipation of the microsoft presser? Why is there thinking Incred is announced today or having anything to do with microsoft event? 600+ pages and my brain is frazzled. I'm sure I missed the answer to my own question - but someone fill me in.

I thought we were supposed to STOP off topic banter about age and all of that? I'm sure the Mods will close this thread down if this continues. That's why there are general and off topic forums for this. Please dudes, I would like to keep this thread open so we have a reliable incoming stream of news about the Incredible.

That's what his/hers/ours checking accounts are for!



Joking aside though, that's what my husband and I do. He doesn't blink when I bring home my millionth gadget or drop $100 at Sephora (yes, I am a walking contradiction - I love makeup, and I love geeky stuff!); I don't blink when he has to cover his son's rent for the 3rd month in a row (little background: DH is 15 years my senior, has a 20 year old son); bills still get paid on time.

Finally, if you're a high-bandwidth user of Verizon's smartphone data services, the company will soon hunt you down and throttle you. (The company has long had a maximum transfer limit on monthly data plans.)

First of all...WELCOME!

Second...why in the world do you think this would get you banned? I think you (and others) would be very surprised to see how few people get banned. And other infractions (suspension, probation, etc...) aren't handed out because you don't like the CEO of another company. Your thoughts, views, and contributions are not only welcome here, they are encouraged as long as they are in good taste. I would even bet many people would agree with everything you've said (sans the ban part).

My only comment, and it's just my personal one, is that I want the best coverage, the best network, and to the extent possible, the best phone. The pendulum swings from one company to another every few years but right for me that company is Verizon, whether I like the CEO or not. I actually wouldn't want to give him, or any other CEO (or anyone else for that matter), the satisfaction of knowing he influenced my decision and made me settle for any less than i wanted just because he's a jerk.

To each his (or her) own...and again, WELCOME! Looking forward to your future contributions.

I did the CSR bit complaining about how VZ wouldn't offer anything up on this phone even after my telling them I was going to try Sprint worry free for a month and if nothing turned up I'd stick with it and cancel VZ. Was just a threat as I often make to get something out of them. So get this my wife goes in for a NE2 to get plain old phone and there is a pending order to cancel my service and therefore she could not get the phone. I have never heard of them doing a cancellation without calling in so I guess they have gotten a lot of threats and figure the hell with us.

VZW will probably release a press announcment after the microsoft one or something. Maybe some VZW reps will be there. I don't know. I expect VZW to make some sort of an announcment today, hopefully regarding their operation 6 takeoff/blastoff thingy their doing
