    Hey Guys,

    Just curious who/what everybody that is eligible right now is doing. I have been eligible since the end of February, coming of a 1yr deal on the Incredible. I went through Costco and picked up a Charge but I was "underwhelmed" with it and returned it two weeks later. I was thinking about going out and picking a revolution just to test drive it for a few weeks and returning it. For people like me, right now kind of sucks. I want a new phone, but nothing out there is a real step up from my Incredible. In my opinion, the only things the Charge has over my tweaked out Incredible is the screen and 4G.

    Funny, I just went and checked today, and I'm eligible for upgrade July 7th. The salesman tried to tell me that the Charge was a better phone than the Galaxy S II (which he also said he had not heard of first off) and then tried to sell me on the Galaxy Tab 7" b/c the 10" were due in soon.

    I think he missed the part where I wanted a smartphone replacement.

    I really, Really REALLY need to make a business card and add my user login here on the forums to it....I can't stand it when folks try to BS me on something I already know for a fact is not true.

    holding out. There isn't one phone I'd blow a contract on right now... as hard as I tried (2 tb's and an inc 2, all returned). Hoping that a sensation variant comes out (not even a rumor of it yet though), and if nothing by the Fall, I might do an iphone next, we'll see... hey now that apple adopted some android features, I might be able to do it..

    I'm eligible for my annual upgrade, but nothing was knocking my socks off either. I managed to find a deal on a Charge off Ebay, off contract. I'm going to try to turn around my Incredible plus accessories on ebay. In the meantime, my upgrade is being saved for the Galaxy S II variant (Samsung Function). I do like the Charge over my Incredible. Bigger screen, no more pentile matrix, better sunlight visibility, hdmi out (the incredible's video out sucked - real choppy), FFC for video chat, better camera in general, 1GB for apps (I was constantly hitting the limit on my Incredible).
