    So I have a story that will probably anger a lot of people but hopefully give some hope to others. After spending the last few weeks trying to decide which phone to purchase I (like a million other people) decided the DINC was for me. I looked around online and quickly realized the thing was going to be nearly impossible to find.

    So basically, I went to a Verizon store near where I live (there are about 5 in the city) and asked if they had any DINC's in stock. The woman working was quite rude and offputting and told me there was no way I was going to find one anywhere in the city at any Verizon store. I also checked the local Best Buy and Wal-Mart, no luck.

    Sadly, I returned to my girlfriends house and decided to try looking online for local retailers as a last resort. I called a Verizon store 10 minutes away from the one I had visited and to my surprise they had 1 HTC Incredible in stock! Needless to say, I was there in a heartbeat. They girl working was very nice and told me they had just gotten two the previous week and one was already taken.

    So I understand I got extremely lucky in getting this thing when I did but hopefully others will start to see some Incredible's popping up at their local stores. If you are waiting to get the phone after ordering online then maybe this is a good sign of things to come. Best of luck to all of you!

    Yeah, I'm a few months late to the party but so what ;)

    I'm really enjoying the phone so far, it's really amazing what you can do with it at once. Multitasking is second to none from my experience with IOS4.

    And for you guys still waiting, I'm really sorry. I feel like I cut in line...

    Yea, jeeze... you're suck a jerk!

    LOL, just kidding. Any one of us would have done the same thing if we could :) It was really fun to see all the people who ordered it from Amazon get it in 2-5 days while I waited almost a month (ordered 6/19, getting it today).

    It's just the luck of the draw really. I could have went the Amazon route but it would have cost me $50 more. In the end, I decided to wait and save that $50. Good thing too, since I spent more than that on accessories!

    Haha yeah well it looks like yours is coming soon so hopefully you won't have to wait much longer!

    You would think the Verizon store would be the fastest place to order from but apparently not...

    Welcome to the club. Can't say family b/c a lot of people don't act like family. I hope you are enjoying your Incredible as I am with mine. Everybody who received their incredible have not been disappointed...a few bugs which will be fixed with an update but other than that.....it's INCREDIBLE!!!!

    Thanks alot :) So I've been playing around with a bunch of different apps, found some cool stuff but I'm trying to fill all 7 screens with stuff I will really use. Completely off topic I know but any can't miss apps or widgets you guys have found?
