    Hey guys, crappy Eris owner here. Need an upgrade, and I want the Incredible as i've already got the seideo 1750 mah battery for the eris and i know it fits in the droid, and the incredible seems like the best bet to get right now anyway (don't like the droid X in the least).

    So, with the whole screen debacle and now the phone being backordered until Aug 3rd, what the hell are the chances that I'll get that SLCD screen? I don't want it; I want an AMOLED as the phone was originally intended for. I've seen the many topics on here, and i've seen the comparison slides and looked it up, and clearly AMOLED is the way to go.

    I know there's no official announcement and that they're gonna be mixing the different screens apparently, but what the hell? if I get an LCD and don't want it, would they take it back and make me wait another month to hope i get the AMOLED? i really want the phone and sadly i'm willing to wait the month because the eris is a POS lagger, but if i'm not satisfied due to the screen, what can i do?

    That is a tough question to ask!
    I guess you could call VZW and tell them your situation as far as what you heard about the screen changeover and ask them what your recourse is should not like what you may get...

    As you probably know, you have 30 days from purchase to figure it out. I'm sorry, I just don't have a better answer for you.

    It is my understanding that when the change happens they will begin notifying customers. That hasn't happened yet so the chances of getting the SLCD even on orders placed today is slim.

    Last I heard they are still working with the test models of the new screen. They can't begin shipping with it until they are done testing it.

    And FYI... I am pretty sure they are just adding SLCD's to the mix in order to keep up with demand. Which means that at some point (all we know is "later this summer") they will offer both versions. If you will have a choice is something we will just have to wait and see about...

    thanks guys, good information!

    i suppose i should just call and perhaps ask them the same question? i mean, as you said, they have to notify customers first...hmm. maybe i'll go and place my order; early birthday present since my birthday is the 30th...i'll get it almost in time! lol hopefully...ugh

    By the way, is this a New Every 2?
    I ask because it appears that some Best Buys and Walmarts appear to have them in stock and it looks like Amazon has them available as well...

    Just an FYI

    actually yeah..my new every two isn't ready till feb, but when i called for tech support wtih my eris the other night they informed me that since i'm the primary line i can do the upgrade rgiht now, for 199...which makes no sense to me because there's 7 months left, but they said nope its ok lol. i checked the walmart.com for the store near me; nothing...also for best buy, and amazon says 1-3 week wait...which is basically the same as vzw at this point


    *edit*
    actually damn, a walmart near me a town over is shown to have them in stock...if i went there and got it, would they be able to do up my account and everything like vzw would? like extend the contract 2 years etc

    It is probably just a matter of them updating their system.

    I can't count the number of times that I have called Best Buy or WallMart about something that shows instock online just to find out it's not really there.

    meh nevermind. went to my local walmart, turns out the kid said they never got any in the first place. online must've been f'ing up.

    then i went to some VZW stores, but since all the reps in there are uneducated morons, i quickly left. but i did get a chance to play with some of the Incs. sigh. don't really feel like having to wait a month for a phone :\

    That's odd for sure. Just came from the arena actually.
