    Owning the Inc would you consider the Inc2 for this price? I have an upgrade I can use, but don't want to on the Inc2 coming from the original Inc. Given that, the only phones that seem to be coming out are 4.3" screens. That's too big for me. I found an Inc2 locally here, it is bran new (well 2 weeks old) and I can pick it up for $225.00... Is there anything about the Inc2 over the Inc that would make it worth the $225.00??? Tossed on this deal and wondering if others would go for it or not...

    I might add... Mint with case and screen protector and 16 gig card

    Is the Inc2 rootable and does it already have GB 2.3.4?

    Current version of Gingerbread on the Incredible 2 is 2.3.3. I believe it is rootable though.

    I got my wife an Incredible 2 a few weeks ago, and it's a really nice phone. I wouldn't pay to replace my Incredible with it though... it's not THAT much better. If someone gave me one, I'd certainly take it.

    Doesn't seem like too bad of a price, the full retail is something like $500. I'd be a little concerned about the account it's coming from... if they've only had it for 2 weeks and bought it on a 2 year plan, they are obligated to keep the plan and you might be looking at a flagged ESN a couple months down the road if they bail on the plan. Some of the VZW employees here can explain it better.

    There is no justification for getting the Inc2 at this point, zero. If you know enough to be a member of this forum, you know enough that it would be a silly purchase.

    I see what your saying, and for what I use my phone for... ya.. it really wouldn't be worth it I have determined. However, I don't think I would go as far as saying there is no justification. For somebody who travels having a phone that has GMS and CDMA might be very useful. Somebody that uses Skype, having the front facing camera I am sure would be a good feature. Some people justification enough may just be the updated screen.

    I'm happy with my Inc, but if I *had* to take a different phone, Inc2 would be my choice. As long as HTC keeps making a 3.7"-4" screen phone with the Inc/Inc2's performance etc. I'll keep buying them. 4" is my limit in terms of what "fits" my needs. I hope this trend towards bigger and bigger screens stops soon.

    WRT the price, again unless I had no choice but to change phones I wouldn't pay more than $100 for one off the street.

    A year and a half into my contract on the incredible 1, I got the update for GB, and the phone would not stop rebooting. So I called VZW and complained and they sent me a DINC 2 for free (and no I don't have insurance). Let me tell you, I'm not sure I would use my 2 yr upgrade on the DINC2 but it is nice. It runs smooth, and the screen size is perfect (4" vs 3.7"). They have made a couple of nice upgrades in this thing including the front facing camera, and the form factor is nice. Some negatives are I do miss the joystick but that is probably more preference and it feels like there is alot more bloatware then on the DINC1.

    At $225, I'd strongly consider it. This would hold me over until my NE2 and the Inc3. Also, keep in mind that you could then sell your Incredible, or just ship it off to Verizon as a trade-in for $75 or so. That would effectively bring the cost down to $150, which isn't bad at all.
