I'm guessing it's someone at the store/company who knows the phone inside and out, so they can answer the tougher questions on it for troubleshooting, etc...

I could be wrong though. Maybe Viper can chime in and let us know?

Per Anon, "Subject Matter Expert (SME) by their management on the Incredible so we have a very good inside track now."

It's a bit tough to be a general participant on this thread if every word is scrutinized. When i posted the "blank" (white font) post, it was just because i heard the quote this morning, reminded me of the good book (Somethign Wicked This Way Comes), thought it kinda pertained to our situation and play on words and various definitions of "wicked", and the post had nothing to do with anything cryptic or anything, just having some fun. In fact it wasn't even related to the news i was able to share just a few minutes later.

Just giving you guys a little insight that some of us staff (Guide's, Mod's, etc...) wouldn't mind simply participating in the thread too but it seems like it's pins and needles if anything is said by a person who's "color" is different. Oh snap, stop being racist! lol Stop profiling me! j/k

Seriously though...sometimes i'm just trying to participate and cut up a bit with you guys.

you could go back to your old phone if it doesnt release in your 30 days (God forbid). Your contract would be erased and you could upgrade to the Incredible when it releases. No restocking fee.

i'm just sayin.

i guess the guides gotta "feed" the machine here ... that's their job I guess.
it is just starting to look like hyping traffic to phandroid.
ans it's starting to feel like a verizon store.

Question - once this handset drops and we've all wiped the drool off it, what are we going to do with the time normally spent posting on and refreshing this thread? Will we actually have to be *gasp* productive?!

Say it ain't so.

I agree. Just announce when the phone is coming out, so I can stop thinking about getting a droid or a droid 2 or switching to Sprint. I just want to get on with my life.

Disagree with the EDIT, bacon makes everything better, even a horse.

For peeps complaining about Verizon, the grass is always greener: I am on Tmo:

1. You all have Droid and we have the Cliq (jeesh)
2. Have HD2, but on a soon dead OS with no Flash 10.1 support and many reports of lagging UI.
3. Tmo version of the TP2 has no 3.5mm audio jack
4. Most of Tmo devices use three year old hardware (7200 series chipset)
5. 3G has weak coverage areas and is very laggy connecting to sites compared to Verizon 3G. I have a G1 and N900 and both are laggy with 3G.
6. 2G coverage and data have looong gaps for no coverage. We went to Cedar Point and had almost 40 miles of no coverage coming from the west of the area. Verizon had 3G in the same area, for gosh sake.

I know this is a buyer be ware world but somethings are a little ridiculous to do just for a simple sale, ever hear of a long time customer. Anyway, on to the story. So I got done with my exam around noon on monday and needed to trade in some games and pick up mulch for the wife. SO I decided I'd stop in to the local, non-corporate store to probe for info on the incredible and look at some other phones for the wife. The rep looked up our account and said yes you are eligible for NE2 with $50 rebate on 1st line (mine). I won't just buy a phone for my wife before her trying it out so I took the reps card and said I'd talk to my wife. Well, my wife wanted to head to Roanoke this evening and return some stuff and spend time together. We stopped at the corporate Verizon store expecting to upgrade her phone. NO DICE!!! So got to talking to the CSR and found out that the non-corporate rep was jobbing me out of another $50 dollar rebate ($100 for every 2 year upgrade, $50 for every year upgrade on primary line). She was offering me the 1 year upgrade, 4 days from when my NE2 was up (which is 4 months before your 2 year contract is up). What a b****h. I know the non-corporate rep is paid on commission but she not only lost mine and my wife's commission b/c she tried to job us but I will spread the word to students, who are looking to upgrade to smart phones for rotations to not even bother with that store.
So for some incredible news. I told the CSR that my wife liked the Palm Pixi but I was waiting. He asked for what and I told him there is a new phone out towards the end of the month. He asked if I cared to share which one that was as he was aware of 6 (SIX) coming out in April/May. I said it was a HTC phone. He said oh, you mean their new android phone. I said yes, you'd heard anything not on the forums. He mentioned that it was due out toward the end of the month based on the information he has received from corporate but did not have an exact date. Anyway, that is my incredible news. Thanks for reading my ramble.
One more thing. Anyone think it'd be awesome if they made a commercial referencing a box from montana and as theyopen it cut away (kinda like the original storm commercial but have the guys/girls open it just say INCREDIBLE!! Thanks again MM, Kappy, Anon, apang, NKT, and any others I missed.

Is it me or are posts like this reaaallllyyy difficult to read. I think you might be able to get your point across by either using bullet points or more breaking it down into paragraphs. Not flaming here, just a kinda suggestion.

So what are you trying to say.....the Incredible is out TODAY!!

Joke of course....you might want to consider a new profile just to keep every other word you type out of context, and speculated cryptic codes.

So if you have specific questions please ask. Sounds like you're taking some offense or have concerns with my wording...i don't mind clarifying, just ask. I can tell you that "potential" is just saving my own ass from the mass flame machine if i can't get pics...i know how that goes, i've witnessed 665+ pages of it. "Inclined"...take that as you will, but i can't say any more than that, and it's in all of our best interest if those sources continue to stay protected.

Happy to keep discussing...just ask.

Just giving you guys a little insight that some of us staff (Guide's, Mod's, etc...) wouldn't mind simply participating in the thread too but it seems like it's pins and needles if anything is said by a person who's "color" is different.


Seriously though...sometimes i'm just trying to participate and cut up a bit with you guys.

You should feel no need to explain yourself, keep up the good work and I for one appreciate all the info, and to be honest, knowing that this thing isn't coming out today, I like the games and suspense you create...
Strong work sir...

Screw 'em if they can't take a joke....

I too am frustrated with the lack of a release date. However, I can understand from the Verizon executives for not releasing information. They simply want their sales people left in the dark. They want to sell phones today. They don't want them telling people to come back in a few weeks. Yes there are a ton of customers screaming and yelling. However, I bet there are more people unaware about new phones, that are willing to buy the minute they step into the store. These people out number us. It's sad yes, but it's the way of life. Money comes first for these big companies.

Kappy, are you still in State College? I just want to make sure I get to Verizon before you to increase my chances of getting one. .

5. 3G has weak coverage areas and is very laggy connecting to sites compared to Verizon 3G. I have a G1 and N900 and both are laggy with 3G.
6. 2G coverage and data have looong gaps for no coverage. We went to Cedar Point and had almost 40 miles of no coverage coming from the west of the area. Verizon had 3G in the same area, for gosh sake.
You're leaving out one important fact: You have no-contract plans so you can leave at any time.

It's a bit tough to be a general participant on this thread if every word is scrutinized. When i posted the "blank" (white font) post, it was just because i heard the quote this morning, reminded me of the good book (Somethign Wicked This Way Comes), thought it kinda pertained to our situation and play on words and various definitions of "wicked", and the post had nothing to do with anything cryptic or anything, just having some fun. In fact it wasn't even related to the news i was able to share just a few minutes later.

Just giving you guys a little insight that some of us staff (Guide's, Mod's, etc...) wouldn't mind simply participating in the thread too but it seems like it's pins and needles if anything is said by a person who's "color" is different. Oh snap, stop being racist! lol Stop profiling me! j/k

Seriously though...sometimes i'm just trying to participate and cut up a bit with you guys.
I think the vast majority of us took it as a joke...especially those of us that have been around for a while. Some folks just need to relax a little and keep in mind that there is no trouble discerning when Anonimac is getting ready to post some potentially valuable info; he always precedes it with: "I am getting ready to post some info as soon as it is vetted" "or as soon as I get it watermarked." When he does post information, it isn't like it is absent of 20pt font and exclamation marks either.

The last thing I really want to see are the couple of posts that insinuate that he is somehow letting us down. If it weren't for him, we'd all be waiting for week old news or random speculation on the blog sites.

Nah I'm stuck at *hitty home in NE PA, I'll be going to my local VZW store or BJ's Wholesale to snag it.


EDIT: however, if I were out there I'd say we hit up Champs for lunch after!!!

A cop would be alot more likely to join you eating doughnuts, but to each their own

Hopefully we can get some good news soon, my birthday was yesterday and one of my presents was money towards the Incredible. Now I just play the waiting game

Anon,

Keep doing what you are doing. If people need to read into everything you say beyond what is on the surface then so be it. Those of us that are sensible know that if you have anything to contribute you do and you aren't trying to hide anythiing.

Lightbulb Off Topic Warning

ok, so this brings up a topic i've been kinda discussing with a few other folks (staff)...

It's actually kinda depressing...we'd like to participate more in threads but the "presence" of a Mod or whatever seems to make people uneasy...like something's "going on"...or they're there to discipline someone...or we're about to get shut down...etc... And it's not nearly as bad for me as a Guide vs. Mod (i can't even imagine what it's like for Phases!)

Anyways...just sayin', when i started this thread, it was to be a general participant, community member, etc... I certainly don't mind the role i'm in, i enjoy it, i think it's helpful to our little community, we have some good sources now who trust that i'll keep their identity in confidence as they give us good information (a lot of it exclusive), etc... but in some ways I do feel more detached from just chatting, funny comments, etc... Sometimes i'd love to just RIP INTO some people for some comments or whatever but end up swallowing some pride, taking a step back, and either saying nothing or coming up with a measured response that is in the best interest of the thread, forum, and overall community...

ok, "Anonimac's Couch" is over...sorry...just speaking "from the heart" to the extent that's possible digitally.

Anon, I can tell if you're on "Guide" mode or "chat" mode just by looking at the color of your wording.

I saw an episode of Roseanne last night where Dan Connor shared some INCREDIBLY profound words of wisdom with his son DJ Ė he said, waiting makes you appreciate what youíre waiting for.
So, who isnít appreciative enough of this new phone and causing us to wait so long?

I think most of us are comfortable to speak our minds on a mature level with you around. (or any mod for that matter) Just ban the ones who wanna argue/rant with others I'm sure we'd all back you here.

I can relate - I'm a mod on another site and sometimes I hate just sitting on the sidelines. I cope by telling myself that "I'm helping to enrich and better the community".

Either way, thanks for your hard work in keeping this monster thread relatively on topic :-)

Speaking of "on topic", I'm wondering if Google will release Flash 10.1 at the I/O conference. They're going to be doing Android and multimedia stuff there, so it wouldn't be totally random.
