    what on earth is an I-Droid? lol
    But okay, I have a crack in my screen and don't have insurance. Would it be possible to just get a refurbed phone for free?
    Also this is probably dumb, but does rooting void warranty?

    - What's the status on the Incredible stock? Has Samsung overcome it's material issues causing the Incredible shortage?

    - Any timeline or solid info on tiered data plans?

    - Will VZW's own internal testing better coincide with major software releases? For example VZW stayed behind other carriers when it came to BB OS software updates.

    Depends on your local store. Its managers discretion. If the manager wants to let you replace it, they will. Try to make a big stink about tenor, how much your bill is ect..

    Incredibles are stick backordered for about 28-30days. Theres not eta on when they will get back into the stores. For instance, last week we had obout 35,000 in the warehouse, and 33,000 were already allocated to customers.

    What does Samsung have to do with the Incredible?

    What do you mean by tiered data plans? Non unlimited allowances like at&t released? Or family share data plans?

    Verizon has one of the most strick guidelines when it comes to software releases. As hard as it is to beleive(ie voyager/envtouch software being at version 12), so on this, im not really sure. Thats more of an internal thing. After all, im a sales rep =)

    No problem..gives me something to do when im in between customers at work.


    Also, if you want me to track your order status, i need a few details:
    Mobile number(if you feel comfortable)
    If not:
    Order number & location you bought it..store/online ect.
    First and/or Last name

    Mobile number is only thing I need to look up your order easily.

    Remember, just as in the store, Verizon Wireless upholds its statement of confidentiality with customer information. Anything that is your personal information is your personal information, and will not be released over this website or any internet. With this being said, I will not answer any questions about your specific plan, nor will I change or look up anything on your account.

    Thanks for understanding.

    Gotcha, I think that whole material issue thing is a cover up for the real truth that we are honestly selling these things OUT..WHen the storm1 came out, we didnt have nearly as many phones allocated for orders. It was only a 1 week back order for the device..However, that material thing still maye be a small issue. But we are getting them in the warehouse regularly, so...

    Reportedly, it's a shortage of the Samsung-made AMOLED screens that are causing the shortage of HTC Incredibles.

    Droid Incredible confirmed to be suffering from AMOLED shortage -- Engadget

    Edit: Somebody beat me to it...

    I'm fairly certain he/she was referring to the AT&T-like tiers.

    Ok



    Uh, wow....The AMOLED displays on the phone - The Incredible - you're selling is manufactured by Samsung. They are the reason behind the shortage.

    Yes, "non unlimited allowances like at&t released"...It's inevitable for all carriers to remove the "unlimited" plans with the release of 4G networks and data driven devices. I was wondering if there was any "unofficial" word on a timeline or what kind of plans/packages would be offered.

    The reason I didnt know that Samsung makes the AMOLED screen is because we were never communicated that the shortage was due to the screen shortage..So with that being said, If we werent communicated this, you can assume that it means nothing =)

    and see my post above yours for the 2nd part about the plans

    If the VP of Marketing for Samsung can openly admit an OLED shortage...there's a shortage.

    What about tethering the phone? Is this going to be released by VW in Froyo, or are they going to disable it.

    Will all due respect, unless this website validates you in some fashion, people should understand that you really could be anyone.

    You can natively tether the phone now provided you have the $29 tethering plan.

    OK but again, we have a very large contingency of the phones in our warehouse, they are being sold very hard. This samsung issue might have been more of a "at launch" issue then it is now.
    You can already tether the Incredible..

    With all due respect, you can't be serious?

    Three weeks to a month to ship on direct online/phone VZW orders - ignoring for the moment the brick & mortar orders - is hardly a "very large contingency".

    I tip my hat to your PR effort but anyone with half a brain can tell you don't have a "contingency" of devices. Especially when replacements are being filled after new/upgrade orders.

    Yes, we'd like to know if the "VW" in your case actually stands for Verizon wireless and not "Volkswagen" as happened earlier in this forum. Many of us were fooled in asking a Volkswagen technician Verizon questions! LOL

    I for for believe you are with Verizon, I was an indirect dealer for a few years and your language sounds correct!:D

    Seeing what you posted here looks like it's a copy/paste from a list of technical bulletins.

    Can you provide the entire current list of official technical bulletins for us please?
