    I almost got the droid today just to return it with in the 30 days to get the incredible.

    I am going from a BB storm1 so it would be a big upgrade considering how much of a POS that phone is. But I help off because I do worry if it doesn't get released with in 30 days.

    I know I can still return the phone and use my old phone. I worry that I may become attached to the droid considering my old phone and then I would be stuck =(

    All we need is a release date... is that so much to ask!

    So, I'm officially SCREWED!!!! The 30 days is up on my ERIS... I was going to return it today and use my Dad's Palm.... I'm visiting the parents and I don't have my car up here.... VZW is CLOSING SOON & no one is HOME!!! No one thinks it's important enough to get home before VZW closes.... FML.........
    No INCREDIBLE for me.... My birthday is on Monday........ =(

    (I couldn't return the phone before I flew home b/c I had nothing to replace it with)...

    Do I have any options???

    Can I add a line when it comes out and then switch the Incredible to my current #, then drop the second line and eat the break of contract cost?

    Can I possibly start dating a guy that works for Verizon.... People say I'm pretty & I have a great rack........

    Or, should I just pout for another year and keep stalking this forum............

    P.S. I do have a friend in ATL that works at a non-corporate VZW Store... He had no clue about this phone.... When I mentioned the specs he said ohh the Supersonic??? For some reason he's heard of it and thought it was to be named the Supersonic.... I think he may be on the forum now.....

    Just check craigslist for cheap used eris' it'll save you your upgrade and when the INC you could just sell it off, think of it like renting the phone for a bit.

    This is an interesting storyline. My take (guess) on why go after HTC is simple. Influence/scare/threaten ALL the hardware manufacturers to not use Android. Keep in mind, technically Google isn't doing any importing, it's HTC and the other mfr's.

    I also wonder if some of it is about taking the fight to someone that doesn't have that many patents to fight back with. I would bet that Google has a treasure-trove from which to draw upon.

    Another somewhat far-fetched theory is that Microsoft is who stands the most to gain by the mfr's hesitating on Android. Apple is going to get their's, but Microsoft needs a lot of help to see them survive at a competitive level in the mobile os realm. In addition, they are pissed about Google asking the gov't to not approve the original MS-Yahoo deal. Reportedly, they have spent millions since then on lobbyists in DC to rally against anything Google wants to do - see Admob acquisition. They have been cozying up to Apple recently which is really ironic.

    It's turned into one big soap opera with these 3 co's...:(

    Surprised they let you back to where the machine is. At least all the stores I've been to in phx / flag/ tucson area have had 'em hidden away in back and won't let customers back there.

    Well if you are trying to avoid nonsense this is not the place.
    There is about 10 total pages of credible info here and I have been here for it all.
    True credible info is like seeing bigfoot, you better have a camera when you see it and even then half the people wont believe you.

    DON'T DO IT UNTIL WE HAVE A SOLID RELEASE DATE!!!!! I'm kicking myself right now.... My 30 days was up today and I ended up in a situation where I couldn't get to Verizon to return my ERIS and either use my insurance for my BB Storm or my Dads old Palm.................

    Just call VZW and use the old "girl is crying" bit to either get info on the INC or have them extend your 30 days til tomorrow, I'm sure one of the 2 will work ;)

    Well, that would be a revolting development! Agreed on your take with Apple.

    The store you could tell was one of the conversion stores from Alltel and the equipment was NOT in the back, rather it was just off to the side. (Thankfully) :D

    P.S. I love this forum and the people who post in it.. You guys brighten my day! Thanks!!

    Return the Eris and get ur money back and go to the Palm tomorrow.

    Or call customer service or the store and explain your intent to return.

    Don't add a new line. Early termination fees for a smartphone "advanced device" can be as high as 350.

    I would be more than happy to purchase the Incredible NOW and let VZW and Google continue to fight over where the Nexus will be sold/serviced at. :D As a business how can it make any sense to Verizon to not release the Incredible because they can't play nice with Google or Google will not share their toys with them. I don't get it RELEASE MY PHONE ALREADY!!!! If they would release the Inc... i doubt anyone would notice the fact that they are not carrying the N1 in-store. There has to be a different reason. Maybe it is just that VZW is cruel and likes to watch their customers squirm... I don't know but I am not good at waiting... I have not even been waiting that long and I am failing at it. :(
