    I also have the HTC Merge...Love the phone...don't like that there is no support on Verizons website or on HTCs website...And HTC knows about the issues with sense re-loading...and they say there is a fix coming...but I highly doubt it....as soon as I can purchase a different phone I will be dumping this phone

    The Merge is basically the Droid incredible with a keyboard. It was scheduled to come out later in the year when the Dinc was released. Unfortunately VZW decided NOT to carry it last minute for whatever reason. The VZW stores that did sell it, were not VZW corporate stores. They were the "authorized Verizon sellers" retail stores. It's very difficult to replace if it breaks (if you have the insurance plan) because there just aren't many out there. It was a great phone at the time, especially for those who like the physical keyboard. It was supposed to compete with the Droid 2. No idea why it wasn't fully released. Most of the Merge phones out there are unbranded and used on ALLTEL or US Cellular. VZW did allow you to activate it on their network....if you had one.

    It is essentially a two year old phone at this point. It doesn't meet any of the hardware standards on todays phones, and unfortunately it will only run up to Gingerbread smoothly. ICS was not designed for the older hardware running older versions of Android.

    I REALLY REALLY wanted this phone back when it was announced. In fact, my obsession over it is the reason I came to Android Central and stuck around (then I got hooked).

    I was REALLY REALLY shocked to see that it's now being sold on Wirefly.com http://i.imgur.com/L08VD.png

    At this point there's no going back, but a DInc with a great keyboard sounded perfect back in the day. Shame HTC doesn't seem to even bother with hardware keyboards anymore. I'd take a good look at a Merge 2 HD LTE.
