Well, I've gotten to the point where I'm checking my update status atleast once a day. I think I've decided on the Razr Maxx, but haven't ruled out the Rezound of Galaxy Nexus. 2 more weeks...

Default I have defected!

Only shortly after starting this thread, I made the mistake of going to Verizon to check out the new Motorola Razr Maxx. They didn't have it in stock but that did not stop me. I had it Fed Exd to me the next day.


I feel like I've cheated on my boyfriend.

Shame on me. I'm a weak weak woman:

I was counting on you. Now what? I just bought another DINC on Ebay to tied me over till the next DINC-like jump in technology grabs my attention. Don't worry Sharon ill carry on for you. I'm still amazed with this incredible device and just don't see what I'm looking for yet. When I see it I'll know.

I was basically given a Dinc2 by someone who thought it was broken. All I had to do was replace the power button. Don't ask me why they didn't take it too Verizon to replace the phone. I guess they didn't want to wait for a replacement so they just got a new one. Who knows....anywhoo....

Now that i've gotten my hands on a phone that is 'bigger', it just reinforces my belief that the Dinc is as big as I want to go. I know it's only slightly bigger, but I was amazed at how much bigger the Dinc2 felt in my hands. I couldn't imagine how monstorous a phone with a screen larger than 4" would feel in my hands.

On the plus side, I do have a decent second phone on hand as a backup if something were to ever happen to my Dinc, but I hope that isn't anytime soon. The Dinc is like my favorite shirt. It just fits me perfectly.

I feel a tremor in the dark side for me as well. I am really tempted by the Razr Maxx. The biggest thing I didnt like about the Razr was the weird hump in the back which seems to have smoothed out a lot in the Razr Maxx. I can only hold out for so long.

My 15 month old Dinc has been working great. I recently looked at the Dinc2 and the RAZR Max and couldn't see any advantages for me that justified the additional cost. (I'm a moderate data, text, and phone user).

I'll stick with my Dinc for awhile.

I've had my Incredible for around 17 months and have had a very good experience with it. After I rooted and flashed CM7 w/ increikernel on it, it feels like a brand new phone. It even ran ICS pretty well. It has very little lag and I think it can almost keep up with the new duelcore phones. Even now, when I look at it, I am still amazed at how good the AMOLED screen looks.

Sadly, I am just tinkering with it until I am eligible for an upgrade.The GB update was a huge fiasco, and I am not a big fan of Sense. I will probably never buy a non-Nexus device again. Also, I think I have out grown the smaller screen size. Things are a lot easier to read on my girlfriends Incredible 2 and it's only a 4" screen. The Galaxy Nexus feels amazing in my hand, and its just a damn cool looking phone that runs amazing.

I am think of using it as an mp3 player after I upgrade. My Zune is on its last legs; I don't like the iPod and HATE iTunes.

Thumbs up I still love my awesome Incredible

I have my Incredible since release day, good deal through BB. She's naked, stock and as beautiful as day one. I've been lucky with updates, all have been flawless.

Gingerbread has been great for battery life, and all apps have been smooth running. This was my first smartphone and all of you have helped me greatly with my learning curve (I'm 68 and love tech).

I'm also hanging with my beloved ZuneHD 32gig and you can pry it out of my cold, dead hands.

Nothing out there (phones) has tempted me so far, but I keep checking in here to see what you wonderful & fun people have to say. Who knows, maybe I'll be tempted to root one of these days.

Thank you all for helping me love my Incredible.

I've had my Incredible since launch day, and was trolling these forums back during the Nexus-on-Verizon-nevermind-here's-the-Incredbile days. Still my favorite phone of all time and very reliable.

The Galaxy Nexus looks nice, but I'm going to keep the Incredible until something more mind-blowing comes out. I put CM7 on the Incredible yesterday, so that should keep me satisfied until there's a good ICS ROM, which will keep me happy until a truly awesome phone comes out.

25 months and counting with my DInc. GB has been great on my DInc. Seidio 3500 battery,with Active case fattened up my DInc and increased its life for awhile to come. It'll be keeping it until it goes limp

Still have mine (got on release day) and have no intentions of changing that any time soon. In fact I was just thinking that it was 2 years ago that I was following the pre-release info on it, fun times lol (I still want to know what was in that box!! ) Mine is rooted and tweaked and tbh I haven't changed anything in quite a few months, it just works without issue.

It's still in excellent shape too surprisingly. I don't even run a screen protector anymore and the glass in fine. Only thing I have is the Verizon black silicone case and it's kept the phone in great shape.

I used to have a screen protector too. Not any more. Just have that black silicone case as well. Got my Incredible on release day, and have been eligible for an upgrade since 12-28. Point is - I dont see anything worth upgrading to. I knew that this was "the" phone that I wanted when it came out (actually months before). And - for me - it still rocks. I am just going to play the waiting game too. .... what WAS in that box? .....

I have been using mine as my alarm clock/pandora/netflix on the bed stand since I bought my Gnexus. If the Gnex ever dies and is not in warranty I will go back to my Dinc in a heart beat. I miss nothing about this phone. In fact, I spent this morning with it getting it back to stock and letting it get the update to GB. Can't put her out to pasture yet!

Still loving mine except for the huge cracks on the screen. It had a foot and a half drop onto a carpeted surface, landed screen side up and still cracked, even in a Seidio case. I refuse to give it up though.

MWC is this week and HTC announced their new phones, nothing for Verizon it seems. Unless something is announced that'll blow me away I guess I'm sticking with my Inc.

Seriously, there were no new phones announced for Verizon? I love my Inc, but I was hoping HTC would come out with a new 4" (MAX) to replace the Inc and Inc2.. Where are these phones headed then... HTC announces trio of Ones, the X,S and V - Rethink Wireless

Count me in as another launch day owner who hasn't upgraded yet. I still remember waiting for the iPhone or a Touch Pro2 replacement to come to Verizon and deciding that the Incredible had everything I needed except a hardware keyboard. Nothing on the horizon looks tempting. The phone still does what I need it to do, so I'm in no rush.

I have jumped ship and ordered the Maxx. The battery life has been killing me. The other night the battery drained out completely and I was late for work. So I wait anxiously for the Maxx to be delivered today. The Verizon store Rep said my DiNC is worth $30 as trade in value. I have decided to keep it as backup. You never know when you will need another phone......

Other than having to get a replacement (original was overheating and cycling on and off throughout the day), and a few dust particles inside the bottom right of the screen, I've had the Incredible for 21 months and still going strong.

What I noticed, though, is something happened with Power Widget. Before, I used to just hit the GPS button and it would turn on. Now, when I hit the button, it takes me to 'Location Setting' and I have to check 'VZW Location Services' and 'Standalone GPS Services'. Really annoying and inconvenient for what it's supposed to do.

I've been running it completely nekkid; no screen protector (I prefer the smooth feel) or case since I'm running the OEM extended battery and the XWAY holder. It's got a few scratches on the screen here and there, but nothing major. Running OEM GB with the patch (I had to do a factory reset to do so, no biggie); not rooted, but running GoLauncher and Widgetlocker.

With that said, I've been looking at the Nexus as I'm eligible for an upgrade, but I'm just way too comfortable with my Incredible. It's my very first smart phone, after all. That, and the 'extended battery' for the Nexus is a little pathetic. I can run my Incredible for 2 days on light to moderate use on a single charge.

My sister and both my parents upgraded to iPhones already. No thanks, I love my free maps/navigation on mine I think I'm going to run this thing into the ground until, as most of you said, something else WOW's me.

After a bad charger killed my Inc I went & bought another. There's no other phone that I want right now & don't feel like being locked down for another 2 years right now. Jus sucks that I have to root all over again. Especially since this one has the OTA update.

Still have my Dinc that from day one release. Being my first smartphone it has really set my expectations on my next phone and other than the Rezound, nothing is calling out to me (at least until the Incredible 4G is announced offically). After I got mine, I even managed to convince a colleague and his wife, and a buddy's father in law to get one (go figure all of them have upgraded since).

I guess since my area doesn't have 4G LTE yet is one advantage that's not pushing me to upgrade (Binghamton, NY).

Overall the Dinc has been nothing short of 'incredible' and the only thing I've got for it were screen protectors and I don't know how many times I've dropped it on hard surfaces like concrete and asphalt and STILL works. Had a *gasp* moment a few weeks ago after I dropped it on CARPET and I lost sound from my external speaker but after a half hour, the sound worked like nothing happened.

I've been rooted shortly before VZW pushed out Gingerbread and after bouncing between various roms, feel in love with CM. Even tried a few ICS roms and the phone performed really well performance wise.

Until more info on the new Inc 4G comes out, I'm sticking with my current one.

I'm still here too - still holding onto my Incredible, still unrooted, and it's still pretty.

I've thrown over sense and am using GoLauncher though, and I adore the customizations I've put into place. I'm still hoping one of the new HTCs makes it to Verizon under another name and totally blows me away, as I've got one last NE2 and I want to use it on something *good*.

Maybe that HTC Fireball that's rumored to be the next great Incredible... maybe that will be it for me.

Still have mine too (I think I was july 2010) and it still works perfectly.

I only wish the battery would last longer. Every once in a while I think about switching, just for that reason, but I think I should see if I can find any tips first. Anyone?

Root and install Cyanogenmod.

If you don't feel comfortable rooting, you can do a factory reset. This will return your phone to the state it was when you first took it out of the box so remember to back up any data prior.

Still loving my Incredible. My wife has one, and my 9 YO son has one (that he uses for games, music, camera, etc.)

I will move to an Incredible 2 one day. But I'm in no hurry.

Hi still have my Incredible, but now I just use it as a music player.
I upgraded a few weeks ago to the Rezound and really like it, 4G is amazing.

I always recommend to people before they upgrade phone, root and play. Try cm7 or cm9 if its stable. Try miui or miui v 4. Try incredikernel with them.

You will feel like you have new phone with improved battery for free. If you brick..... then upgrade

I just pulled mine out of the washer on Sunday (OOPS!) and thought I would have to use my last NE2 to get something I don't genuinely want. Instead, I took it apart, pulled the board, pulled the screen, took the air compressor to it, slapped it back together, and....works like a charm (plus it's squeaky clean!).

I've never used a case and have had some pretty epic drops, but this thing loves life too much to go out like that. My battery life has always been pretty darn good. No software/hardware hiccups. Still loving CM. Actually, the only flaw is...it has set the bar so freaking high for whatever my next phone might be.

Come to think of it, since it seems to be impervious to impact and water, I might just grab some duct tape and mount it on my bikes/cars like a Go Pro once it finally does retire

im tempted to root. oddly i didnt really have the desire to root until i saw that the inc4 and the galaxy were pending.

other than that, only an occasional browser crash is all i can complain about.

May 10th is suppose to be the launch of the Inc 4G. I hope the price isn't what people are saying. $249.00 is what the word is. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. Have no idea why Verizon is being so quiet and poky about this. All the specs are out, there are cases out, come on already!!

Typing this on my extremely reliable, high performance HTC Incredible. I remember that day in April where I refreshed the FedEx tracking site every 5 minutes and actually drove out to the distribution center to pick up the phone before they delivered it. This thing is a beast. Build quality is, in my opinion, second to none. I run all my music through Amazon and Google cloud, I've read at least 10 books on the Kindle app, and sent thousands of emails over the last two+ years. This phone sets the bar.

Still using mine and love it. I am currently waiting for the Inc 4g to arrive if I don't like it I will wait for the new iphone (4") if I don't like that I will keep my original Inc. It still does everything I need it to do. I think 4" is the sweet spot and 4g would be nice.

Check out this....right now Verizon is showing a Certified Pre-Owned Original Inc on their website. They are selling it for $429.99 retail or free with 2 yr contract.

This is pretty impressive that our phones still list for this much if you purchase out of contract.

I must say my original Inc has served me well, I'm now wondering if anything "can" take it's place or superceded my expectations.

still using my original Incredible from day one of the release..never had a single problem with it. I ordered the google nexus when it was released...but returned it within an hour of owning it. I am tempted by the upcoming Inc 4g...but we'll see.

Still using mine also. Got the Rezound and returned it after 2 days. Also was excited about the Inc 4G, but with the slow release, my excitement is running low. My Inc still does everything I need it to.

I'm still using a Droid Incredible & love it! I actually just bought mine locally on Craigslist in December for $75.

I had originally wanted the Incredible when I was getting my upgrade in July 2010 but they were on a long backorder due to the amoled screen shortages they had then. I ended up getting a Droid X instead & liked it a lot, but always wished it was a bit smaller. About 9 months ago I really wanted to start flashing ROMs & found a lot that I liked for the DX, but wanted to get a phone with a bootloader that I could unlock. I found my DInc on Craigslist 6 months ago, rolled it back to Froyo, rooted it, unlocked the bootloader, & the rest is history.

I actually much prefer it to my DInc & haven't reactivated my DX for more than a few days since I bought this phone even though there are some things that I miss from my DX (multicolor LED, stronger 3g & Wifi radio, better battery life).

I'm eligible for upgrade again now but will probably just hold out for a while & see what's coming later this summer or fall but when I do, I know that I am going to hold onto my DInc as a backup & sell my DX.

I'm currently running unofficial CM9 nightlies as my daily, and other than the lack of video recording (which I used twice to test and show it off) I miss nothing. Now I'm too late to grandfather unlimited data! So why would I let it go before it dies?
And when it does, as all things do, I'm hoping Sprint has their 4G act together. I can wait. I'm happy as a clam with the "new" phone I enjoy each time I experiment with a new ROM.
Root is bliss.

coming up on 2 years next week and I still love mine. No desire at all to replace it. (now, I'm just worried about a forced upgrade to android 4 killing the phone). nothing else out there really interests me at the moment.

I've had mine for about a year and a half. I really don't need/want anything bigger; the screen is beautiful; and the camera blows everything else out of the water. (I have had to do a factory reset a couple of times, because of the memory issue, but I don't see anything out there I'd want to trade it in for. My daughter recently switched to CredoMobile, and I've been considering it, but none of the phones they have really compares to my Incredible.
