    Well, after dropping my near indestructible OG doid for the 50th time, it finally broke. I checked out the Thunderbolt and Charge, but wasnt that impressed with them considering I would have one of them for two years. I bought a 1 month old used incredible on craigslist and I could not be happier. The phone is fast, the screen looks great and I haven't had any problems with it at all. Rooting was super easy. I don't even have the urge to upgrade anymore. I will probably wait until just before tiered 4G pricing goes into effect to upgrade. My only complaint was that I got a tiny scratch on the screen before I could put a screen protector on. No Gorilla Glass I assume.

    The Dinc is a solid phone and quite snappy... especially considering it's a year old now. I hope you enjoy it.

    I just came from a LG optimus to a dinc, I started service and picked this phone. I didn't like the feel of the other phones with bigger screens, they are too wide. The phone was free and I had no use for 4g as my 3g here is fast enough.

    I rooted and installed a custom Rom and this phone is very nice, there are tons of mode and for being a year old its still super fast.

    Good choice on your new (to you) smartphone. I am still enjoying my Incredible (replaced the original with a refurb). Will be keeping mine unrooted (first one was rooted).

    Came from the Eris myself, seems to be a popular trend. I can't even get $100 for my eris.

    I came from the Eris, to inc1, to the inc2... I wouldn't pay more than $40 for an Eris today.

    when the OG Droid first came out, I traded it for an Eris lol, then they gave me the inc1 for free after so many refurbs.

    Dinc is still one of the finest phones out there, imo. My wife and daughter have them. When I'm using their phones, I find it quite snappy and fun.

    agreed. Im upgrading to the thunderbolt, but my incredible has such a special spot in my heart, i a still going to try to flash the newest roms as well as keep my TB up to date. I can hands down say the incredible has been the best phone i have ever owned and it peaked my interest into all things android, root, rom, and development. It's like a drug.
