Will we be able to pre-order for in-store pick-up on the 29th?
My question also. If it's a pre-order for pickup at the store or delivery to my house what's the purpose. I'll just leave work early, go to the store and buy it there.

Just kidding of course and this isn't my usual line of humor so please take no offense. As far as your question, i hope you can appreciate that i can't get into that, and that it is specifically the "iron curtain" of confidentiality and trust that keeps this site so well informed.

Until the next scoop, yours truly, Anonimac!
lol, I live you Anon. Of course I wasn't asking for an actual source like "Steve of 23 Main St, NY gave it to me", but more of a "Came from BestBuy paperwork, or a Verizon staging page, or a psychic Eskimo".

when i signed up at HTC Incredible?

The confirmation email i received contains this text:

THE NEWEST DROID COMBINES ANDROID 2.1 WITH THE SOPHISTICATED SIMPLICITY OF HTC SENSE. IT'S A PHONE THAT SEEMS TO DO EVERYTHING, WITH A 1 GHZ PROCESSOR, 8GB ONBOARD MEMORY* AND 8 MEGA- PIXEL CAMERA. AND IF YOU CAN FIND SOMETHING IT DOESN'T DO, PICK UP ONE OF 30,000 APPS IN THE ANDROID MARKET THAT WILL.
PRE-ORDER ONLINE ONLY STARTING APRIL 19TH

* ACTUAL FORMATTED CAPACITY IS LESS

That is known as FRAUD. It is both illegal and dishonest.

Still, two main features missed and one being a biggie (8gb)? Bad marketing, BAD!

Thanks.
HTC Sense UI supports MS Exchange. I do not know about plain Android 2.1.

You can only have one MS Exchange account. HTC mail application supports as many accounts as you have. I don't know about the gMail application.

HTC mail application has each account in a separate mailbox. You can switch mailboxes very easily by tapping the arrow to the right of the account name at the top of the HTC mail application. You can also set a default mailbox so that when the HTC mail application is opened, the emails for that account is displayed.

You do have to setup your phone with one gMail account. This account is managed by the gMail application Also, this is the account that the Android Market is tied to.

Edit: The HTC Mail application handles html.

Pre order online you get instant discounts and the phone is delivered to your door on the 29th which is the day the stores will have it BUT if you buy in store you will get mail in rebates.

I don't know why it wasn't mentioned.

I'm just telling you that both features are definitely there.

It it were just a 8gb microsd card included with the phone I doubt they'd be saying 8GB onboard memory, and it mentions the radio in the manual so it seems they rushed the PR out and didn't finish it completely.

you would be able to sell your new dare immediately.
the esn of your "lost" one will be no good because verizon will mark it "lost".
in my experience with sprint, the esn will become clear in about 8 mos.

The 8Gb was in the confirmation email, IIRC. Also, the FM radio doesn't seem to be something everyone announces nowadays. I don't know many people who would consider that a killer feature, and you don't want to overwhelm people with loads of details.

Best Buy gives the $100 rebate instantly (confirmed for Inc as well- unless the Best Buy person just fibbed to me).

I'm 90% positive this is my next phone, the other 10% will need to come from some hands-on reviews. I WANT this to be my next phone! (goodbye iPhone 3G)

If I pre-order the phone on the 19th, am I able to cancel my pre-order by the 29th? (just in case some early reviews make me change my mind)

Unless you set your router to only broadcast in N you should be fine. Usually it broadcasts in B/G/N by default

There have been two stories to this floating around this massive thread. If it is pre-ordered, is it delivered on release day? Some say reps have said release day, and others have said release day +1. I hope it's release day (they would overnight it on the 28th) so you'd have it on the 29th.

I think we should accept the fact that this is only going to be 801.11 b/g. No n. The UG must have been a typo because every other doc says only b/g. Plus, it was only certified for b/g.

That depends. If it is MiMo then yes, the Router can broadcast in both N & B/G. If no, then it can only broadcast in one or the other. All Wireless N Routers are backwards compatible with prior revisions of the protocol.

When you sign up for the preorder the email you are sent states YOU WILL GET IT ON THE 29th.

The dark and negative side would suggest that it is an 8gb microsd and the reason the HTC release does not show it is that it is not part of the bill of material (added by Verizon). Also no FM radio, either.

Still, two main features missed and one being a biggie (8gb)? Bad marketing, BAD!
You know the dark/negative side well. All your posts come from there.

As the last few posts explain the 8 gb storage is there and talked about. The launch package that Anon posted lists FM Radio capable -wired headphones required. Sorry to shine on your rainy parade, but the stuff is there. Maybe you can post some dread-filled posts about 720p or wireless N to fill empty that now filled space inside of you.

This is great after a 6 month wait.

If I order it online will I be able to transfer my phone numbers from my Dare to the Incredible myself ?

I have always had it flashed at the Verizon store in the past.

Yes, and to be clear, the absence of n on the device is in the larger scheme of things completely irrelevant.

Yeah +$70. That's exactly the route I want to take. The way phone technology evolves, there will be something incredibly better than the Incredible next summer.

Yes. Because your router doesn't just put out a 802.11n signal. It'll still put out 802.11 b/g signals. All is well!
