    My wife actually likes it more than I thought she would. There are a lot of iphone users at work here. 1 was really interested in my Inc and the others are all haters :).

    My mother didn't get the point of having a phone like this—until I showed her the barcode scanner app. Now if I'm out with her she wants me to scan just about everything.

    My boyfriend absolutely loves my Incredible and keeps stealing it to check baseball scores when we're out. I keep snatching it away and telling him to get his own phone! :)

    my fiance.... she has a moto droid and it works but is glitchy at times. before i got the INC, i was always messing with her phone learning the ins and outs of android here and there. and she would always be like"gimmy back my phone" or "its just a phone relax" she still says that, but now when she wants to browse or read something. its like "can i use your phone?" then when im using it. its back to "its just a phone get over it" women are weird

    I don't even have it yet and I'm already getting it. On a plan with my "sister" and we have to wait until the 19th (annual renewal). She's sick of hearing about it n I'm the only technerd in my group. I have no one to talk to about it. I swear I'm gonna lock myself in my room n not share the greatness no one wanted to hear about.

    I wasn't due for "New every 2" until May 30 but I emailed Verizon and they gladly moved up the date to April 29. Also, a co-worker got one for him and his wife and they weren't up for renewal yet. You don't have to wait if you ask. They want to sign you up for that nice data plan :).

    My friend was my buzz kill. She just kept calling me a big nerd and was like "will you ever get excited about anything else in your life like you did for this phone?!" I told her of course not lol (this is of course not true to anyone who is going to say it is sad to only care that much about a phone, I just was messing with her).

    Wouldn't you know that three days after I got my phone, she got the incredible as well?! Through me haggling with Verizon for her! And now it's "can you help me do this?" "how do you do that?" :p

    The same thing happened to my wife. We were at Target getting toys for our daughter and I showed her the barcode scanner app and the calorie counter app (not on toys, of course). Now she wants to get rid of her curve and get a motodroid (she wants a phone with a keyboard).

    Can't say I've run into that yet. My wife was as excited about it as I was when I ordered it. She's envious of it and can't wait for her window to open up so she can dump her LG Voyager. The only thing I wish is that Big Red would offer a Family Data Plan. $30/person/month on top of the rest of the Family plan gets pricey.

    You know its very easy to convince verizon to push your date forward.

    I had them push it forward a whole 12 months, I just had one year on my contract.

    A couple of days is nothing.

    sorry to hear that you all had some people ruin your new phone fun. But, you know your phone best, so if you enjoy what you paid for, that is most important. at my house, nobody is being a party proper about it, because I did the research on the phone, and me and my mother both got one. we both love it. her boyfriend is even acting a bit envious, being easily amused by things like the weather animations and voice search. all's good here!

    Haha. My gf could care less. My roommate thought it was cool though. His girlfriend was over last night and said "I hear you have a cool new phone". So I gave her a quick demo. Biggest wow factors: weather animations, live wallpapers, google goggles finding products by photo, voice navigation to turn by turn directions with street view. She was definitely "wow"ed! Kept saying "Get out!!"

    My GF is a trooper. She listens to all the neat things I have to say. Says yup, uh huh, and cool. A real lot. The only time she gives me grief is when she is talking to me and I am not listening becuase I am buried in my phone app.

    It was raining out so of course I had to show my wife the cool weather animation. Her response? "You are such a loser" ouch.

    for those whose wives weren't impressed....my tip:

    download the Grocery IQ app.....
    you can create a grocery list either by typing or scanning the items you are low on in your fridge or cabinet....lol...this list can also be email as a "shopping/honey do list"...your wife might want the INC too after seeing this app...;o)
    nothing easier than running through the house...scanning you "regular bought groceries" and sending your list to your hubby via email or marking it off the list while walking through the store ;o) excellent time saver

    just a suggestion...pretty impressive! good luck lol
