    my daughter calls it dincy (dinky) and thinks that is the funniest thing ever. I also have an eyeglass cloth for cleaning the screen throughout the day and she calls that dincy's blanket.
    My wife and daughter constantly make fun of my "Incredible" obsession!!

    i get that too from my wife all the time. we have our third child on the way and i'm hoping for a boy as i already have 2 girls. we are in the process of choosing a name and i have been less than helpful according to my wife. since i am "obsessed with my phone" she has said why don't you just name him "droid incredible[insert last name]".

    "What? Oh, this? It's just my phone."

    I don't really expect anyone to know exactly what my phone is so I just wait until they actually ask "what kind of phone?"

    Then I tell 'em "A stupidphone."

    When asked what kind of phone I have, I call it "The Incredible".
    Any other response (such as adding the Droid prefix) would either be misleading or total nonsense to someone not familiar with the phone.

    LMFAO!
    Congrats on the 3rd kid. Hope you get your boy. I can't even imagine living with 4 girls. I live with 2 and I'm constantly told "majority rules"
    Anyway, good luck with the family and your incredible.
    Let's hope froyo comes soon.

    As many of you know, when I had the DI, I called it Lolita, because it was sexy. When I first got my X, I called it Bubba, because of it's imposing nature. Now that it is rooted and with the cover off, it looks more like a Serena! ;)

    that's kinda gross and pedophile-y

    People always ask me if it's an iPhone and I say "Close Enough". So I guess that's my nickname.

    Close enough? Not even close. The droid tops the iphone in so many ways, its almost an insult to say the dinc is "close enough" to an Iphone
