    If so, what are your opinions, and are you going to keep the X?

    ive only had the x for 10 minutes but so far im regretting my decision

    the data is ridiculously slow compared to the incredible, even when the phone manages to get 3g

    it spends half its time in 1x anyway

    dont know if i got a dud phone or what but even my dads stupid htc touchpro2 is faster to load pages, sitting in the same room

    The X is a lot better. There's a thread about switching on this forum somewhere. I had the Inc for a couple weeks and have had the X for 2 weeks, I would not want the Inc back.

    I just switched... no regrets. I also expect that there will be network issues today as they will most likely be overwhelmed. So far no problems to report.

    edit: just can't seem some of my purchased apps yet.

    I ordered my X this morning in exchange for my Inc. The Inc is not really good as a phone and I'm hoping that the X is better

    Somethings messed up somewhere or it could be just really busy right now. My X loads much faster than my Inc did.

    Switched out my DINC for the X this morning at 0800. I am in my residence now and cannot hardly make a call on the X. Never had any problems with the DINC and I had to use my work LG Accolade to talk to Verizon about this and having no problems with the LG in my residence and the X is right beside it and just lost service.

    The X is showing a decent signal on standby- 2 bars and when I initiate the call the bars go away to no bars and the person I am trying to talk to (if the call goes through cannot hear me) We did a master reset no help...took the battery out and put back in no help. I had to go outside just to get a call to go through a few minutes ago.

    THe signal will show 3G then back to 1X...what the crap is going on. Have I got a bad phone or what...I need some advice. Please.

    Thanks

    My closest tower is 2 miles away and I am in SC.

    I have a -77 dBm signal but it shows only 1 bar (the smallest one). That's with it sitting on the desk. When I put my hand to the top of it I see the signal goes to -81 dBm but shows 3 bars. Not sure what's going on

    I can tell you that anybody in SC depending on where you are located could have problems with any phone. I have done fine with my Droid in Columbia, but when traveling on back roads across the state I have dropped calls a few times. I also know Verizon is still better in these remote SC areas and AT&T. My sister can't even use her phone in her house with AT&T in the upstate.

    That sucks though. I sure hope I don't have those problems or I will return the phone. For all the great reviews the phone has gotten, if you can't make calls then it is useless.

    UPDATE...I just got back from Verizon store and got a new Droid X...no worries so far. The phone was bad...no other explanation. The phone I have now has worked flawlessly in the same areas that I could not make a call.

    I ordered my X through tech support this morning because of the shitty battery life on my DINC. 5 hours between charges just wasn't cutting it. they are exchanging it for me even up...

    There is a known data issue going on today with the x's. Manager at VZW was talking about it today. All the managers were texting eachother about it, and thats why there is such a volume of calls on VZW. As well as ordering.

    I ordered my X today. :)

    Bye bye Inc!

    I didn't switch but my husband bought the DX today. I have decided to keep my Inc because I prefer the smaller size. I'm sure we'll have fun comparing the two. I think they're both really slick phones. Enjoy, everyone.
