    I've got a friend who got an HTC Incredible. He had a Motorola Droid and may be be swapping back to it by the Incredible isn't suiting his needs for a business trip.

    If he deactivates with *228 and reactivates his Droid in the same manner, assuming he wipes the Incredible like a factory reset could I deactivate my Droid and activate his and try it out?

    Is this possible??

    Yep, it'll work just fine. You will need to call cs to get it activated.

    Customer Service? Or can you use *228 and enter in your mobile number to do it?

    .....and know that doing so voids his warranty

    That makes sense since the warranty is tied to your contract

    Since when? I used my wife's eris for 2 weeks and she still got a exchange (bad camera) when I gave it back.

    I would think the manufacture warranty is tied to the phone. Are you referring to the insurance he might have? I could see that being an issue.

    Or have I might just missed the /s in your post

    It comes at a good time, I have a Moto Droid since January and I love it. However I am an IT guy and faster/better is always on my mind lol.

    I've found that really I don't use the hard keyboard pretty much at all, except for navigating the cursor when I get frustrated! If I can get 7 homescreens and that Snapdragon and RAM boost I might go for it :)

    Even not activated I can still charge up and play around with the current apps on the phone (as long as there's wifi connected) and the OS just to get a feel for the difference right?

    Is she on the same account? If so, then no it won't void your warranty.

    HOWEVER, if you are swapping phones out to a separate account, then it WILL void the phone's warranty. I have verified this with several VZW employees, and even called customer service at the time I was activating my Incredible and asked directly, what will void my warranty, and again was told if I decide to pass this phone out of my account, it will do so.
