    My wife just texted me that Verizon has dropped the price of the Incredlbe to $149. I would think that means that it is about to be overtaken by a newer, hotter phone, but I don't know what that would be. Any thoughts?

    Incredible HD scheduled to be released 11/23. Explains why they've been doing the BOGO, trying to deplete their inventory. Personally, I just got my Inc last Friday because I got it for free and IMO it's still the best phone out for VZW at ths time.

    You do know the Incredible has been out for more than 6 months right?

    I pre-ordered it so I got it the first day. So, yes, I do know that, thank you. :) I also know that Verizon has kept the price high until now.

    That makes sense, thanks. I don't know why, but the Incredible HD wasn't really on my radar screen. I don't know if my wife wants the big screen. She has rejected the Droid X, for example.

    Actually, that's not correct. I don't know about Amazon, but Best Buy does do upgrades. Unfortunately, when we went last Friday, my wife was about 3 weeks away from her upgrade. Verizon was willing to cut her some slack, but BB could not.

    Yes they do upgrades.. I'm talking about an early upgrade on the two year contracts. Verizon stores let you do it after 12 months on a 2-year contract if you have a plan that's $49.99 or higher. Annual upgrades only work on primary lines though.

    His point exactly, they are replacing Droid 2s with Droid 2 Global.... so there's a reason to believe Incredible will be replaced too.
