    $249.00!!!!! Ouch. Well, this will test my will power. Might have to let this one stew awhile. Wait to see how this thing looks in the reviews. See if it's really an upgrade. I will definitely check it out first day it's available though, and give it a chance to wow me. There is a whole lot of worth to being first with the latest and greatest. If the dinc 4g is an exact clone of what I saw when I test drove the one S, I just might jump in. Walking the fence right now. Never can win the waiting game.

    Curious, how much is it unsubsidized? I'll be buying it out of contract (unless the Verizon people are nice enough to let me early upgrade only 1 year in).

    $249+$30+$tax+$fees = Way too much!
    Will not be buying at this price.

    Especially considering the Rezound launched at $299 with an SD card and Beats earbuds, neither of which come with the Inc4G.

    This is a $199 phone. The days of a premium price for LTE are over.

    Remember, just because big red sells it at $249, you dont have to get it from big red. There are probably going to be 3rd party places selling them for cheaper. I think amazon was selling the one x for $149? I remember getting my original inc at $49 from sams club when big red had it at $199.

    This works only if you have one of Big Reds national freedom voice plans, which these 3rd party places like Walmart and Sams have access to when you upgrade. If you have an old Alltel plan like me, you can not go through these 3rd party places, because they can not keep your voice plan for you. You have to go to a Verizon store to upgrade... They get you one way or another.

    Yea but no rebate from vzw :(

    And I agree with the above, especially considering that vzw is charging 30 on top of everything else. 199 or no dice from me.....

    At that price, it'll be easier to wait for all the reviews and make a more informed decision. I'll wait a few months when the price comes down and if the reviews are good, I'll jump on it then.

    Don't Know what the price will be off contract just yet.

    We have a big Company Meeting next Sunday so I'm sure we will get more information about the device then.

    I will keep you inform once we get more information and dummy displays.

    I would assume it will probably be around $550-$600 off contract.

    If this thing is really $250 on contract then it's going to cost me around $335 on contract :mad: because of the extra Cali tax. I'll probably just buy it off contract and use my upgrade for the next iCrap and sell it bnib. And I'm praying it comes with the latest SLCD2 screen.

    Sigh...$249...50 more than what I was hoping for, 100 more than what I was wishing for, 249 more than what I was dreaming about...

    This is a tough call since the phone meets all my requirements for an 4g, 4", verizon phone that isn't the crappy Lucid.

    :congrats: Verizon, thanks for screwing us again.

    Does anyone know how long it would take Costco to get it...if they get it (after its released)?

    I can't wait to check it out. I hope it's not a big disappointment like the Droid 4 was. Hating my Razr more everyday.

    I refuse to believe this phone will be priced at 249$. I think ghost88 might have been misinformed. Come on, 8gb internal storage w/ no microsd card, 4" qhd slcd screen, 1.2 ghz dual core processor (s4 wont matter to a lot of people), and a vga front camera. The pure fact theyre not including a microSD card makes me think they're going to price it a lot lower. If they price it at 249$, NO ONE will buy it. Everyone who was planning to get it on launch day regardless of price should wait, just so they drop the price from lack of units being sold.

    I agree. I mean look at the spectrum which has it beat in a lot of specs(other than processor) and that came in at $199. I cannot see this going for more than $199 otherwise it will see a quick price reduction since it won't sell well at all.

    I dunno, that leaked Droiddoes page did have every spec about the Inc4G correct. Perhaps it really was set at $299 originally but because of market research, consumer reaction, whatever Verizon did, they decided to drop it to $250?

    The only thing keeping our family at Verizon right now is our unlimited data. Other carriers seem to have the upper hand on Android devices right now.

    I really want a smaller screen so I'm going to pay full retail for this phone if it meets my expectations. I just want a concrete release date.
