    I had tried with assurion a few weeks ago and they said they still had incs. My battery has almost totally fried and overheats all the time now, I get paid on friday so I will try again to see if I can get an inc2 or a tbolt and report my findings :)

    *update* just got off the phone with them, they said they do still have them in stock, but that it changes literally every 5 minutes. Basically, luck of the draw if your looking to get something other than an inc.

    I filed a claim last week and got an Inc2. Did it online to make sure what I would be getting.

    At what point in the process did it say what replacement device was being sent? Before you finalize? I put in a claim, but was not sure how far to go before it says DINC2 and I never saw anything that said it.

    I had done one online, and before you submit it gives you the option to talk to an online rep. Thats what I did, I talked to the rep the first time (in may) and they told me they had incs, so I cancelled the claim.

    I called twice yesterday and they said they had incs both times.

    *edit*

    Just called them again, they had no incs in stock, so I'm getting my inc2 tomorrow, woot!

    How did you cancel the claim? The online rep I just chatted with said that I would be sent an Audioxox Incredible.

    I think there is an option to cancel your claim online. It really doesn't matter though as long as they didn't hold one for you. They shipped me an inc2 using the "claim" I filed yesterday. Just keep trying honestly, if thats what your after anyways. I tried to get a TB out of em, but they wouldn't budge on that. At least its not a droid x!

    That's the thing, I don't know if they "held" one or not. I'll just try it and hope for the best. Although,maybe I'll try calling.

    And I was just thinking that it'd been a while since someone confessed to insurance fraud on here.

    I buy and sell phones enough that it doesn't make sense for me to have insurance on them. I have been through 9 different phones in about 2 years (Lost one, broke...well washed one, and the rest have been resold) so in my case, since i like switching phones quite a bit, i have never had insurance. bought my Dinc for $200 on ebay. Craigslist was cheaper, but i wanted the scam-proof assurance that ebay provides.

    If you plan on keeping the same phone forever, get insurance. If you are like me and want the "newest and greatest" (though actually i generally wait till all of the bugs have been worked out) It makes more sense to keep that money and put it in a fund to buy the next phone.

    Unless you have an unusually high risk of breaking/losing your phone insurance never makes sense financially. On average you must pay more for the insurance than you would benefit.

    had to file a claim, not sure how you can tell what you're getting. All mine said was Audiovox DROID INCREDIBLE so I assume they do have Inc. 1s still

    For $20, I'll break your phone so you don't technically commit fraud. :D I know you want to.

    My phone got dropped into a cooler with water and ice yesterday at a picnic, it currently is sitting in a jar of rice to see if it brings it back 100%. It kind of works but the graphics are a little messed up when transitioning screens and the sound is a little garbled.

    I went to the Assurian website to file a claim and it didn't tell me what I would get just that I had an Audiovox Droid Incredible. So I'm assuming that I will get another Dinc1.

    What do you 'hate' about the inc2 over the inc1 (besides no perm root)?

    Will it ever get permanent root? I ask because i was planning on getting one in

    the coming months, but if there is no permanent root then there might as well

    not be root at all. I am not exactly sure how that works though. I assume ROMs

    are out of the question, but what modifications are available?

    so I got my replacement and the screen is definitely not the same as the original. Terrible quality, the screen contrast looks washed out, screen will slightly dim on its own, and it has a blue tint when the sun reflects on it. I don't know if this is common with replacements they send?

    You must have gotten the version with the regular LCD screen. The original Inc came with a much better AMOLED screen.

    It seems like he/she may be describing a manufacturers defect. I would not describe the Super LCD screen that new incredible are shipped with as "terrible quality" or "washed out" even when compared to the AMOLED screen of the older incredibles.
