    Ok so here is my question. My friend works for verizon and I was talking with him today and told him that my eris was acting funny after getting the OTA update for 2.1. So he said well we can send you a new one in the mail. I said jokingly how about you send me the incredible. He said that he will do this for me, but my question to you guys is. Should I get rid of my brand new Eris that is only 5 weeks old and get the "like new" refurbished incredible?


    Thanks

    First off they will not send you a new Eris, it will be a refurb. They will give you a refurb INC for nothing?

    Yes and thanks to everyone else who answered. I am thinking I am going to do this, because even if its a refurbished incredible it is still better than my Eris.

    also, within your warranty period a phone is bound to have some issue and need to be replaced with a refurb anyway. even if the refurb you get has issues you will still be under warranty and get a replacement. well worth the upgrade. they would send a refurb eris otherwise.

    Yea I know it would be a refurbished eris so thats why I am thinking about just doing it. Unfortunately he isnt at work anymore so I cant order it now, but I will soon.

    For the most part refurbished phones look brand new. I say go for it.

    You are prolly the luckiest SOB in the forums.

    I have had many refurbished devices over the years and have never been able to tell the difference. GO FOR IT

    You guys should setup an inside job. Like the movie with denzel Washington.

    Well i guess this is a mini inside job. Nice having friends on the inside isn't it.

    Anyways, yes!!!
