Hey all, first time poster here and I have a few questions regarding my HTC Incredible order that I would like to ask you guys. I realize these questions have probably been asked before; although I'm technologically adept, I'm really new to the whole smartphone thing so bear with me here. Basically, my first problem is that this is the phone my son has been asking for for months and I've finally been able to negotiate the payment of it with him. I ordered the phone around July 9th, and the Verizon site said that the phone would probably ship by August 9th. My son's birthday is the 8th, and I was really crushed when I read the shipping date and sort of just hoped for the best, it would really suck if his only birthday present didn't even arrive on time! In my depression I feverishly checked the site every day and just recently I noticed that the shipping time has been bumped up to the 2nd. I know this probably sounds like a stupid question, but to those of you that have received your phones on backorder, do you think its likely that the phone will get here by the 8th? My second question is regarding the release if the Droid X today. I was planning for this to be my backup option of the Incredible did not arrive on time. I've been reading these forums for a few days and a bunch of reviews on various different sites, and the X seems to be the next best thing compared to the Incredible. I was really kinda bummed because I want him to have the best available, but he hasn't said anything to me about it so I'm not sure what he wants. My question is about Verizon's exchange policy. Say my son activates his phone on the 8th, my understanding is that he has 30 days to play with it before he decides he wants to keep it. Does this mean that if within that one month period he decides that he wants the X because it is cooler/faster/better supported/whatever, that I can hassle-free exchange the phone for no extra cost or grief? I would like to know if I should be canceling my Incredible order before it ships in favor of the X. Thank you all in advance for your help. Sorry if I sound like an old man, I'm really just concerned and I'm really hoping you guys can steer me in the right direction here. Thanks again!
