Anybody considered HTC Incredible before getting ther MT4G?
I thought I'd ask this question here, too, just in case the OTHER forum is slightly biased, as they should.
I am still trying to decide which one to get. Assuming network carrier is irrelevant to me (I've got good coverage from both), is one phone better than the other in any way? The one thing that I do like about MT4G is the ability to use it in Europe because it's GSM. But from plain looks/attractiveness perspective, I think Incredible is a bit nicer. What about functionality/bugginess - are they about even?

The incredible is pretty outdated now. Go for the MT4G. I know someone with an incredible who is very jealous of my phone.
If you haven't seen a mt4g in person, check it out. Besides the speaker grill, I really like the looks.
As far as your original question, no - never considered it. Thought about the evo at one point, but refused to leave t-mobile. I knew t-mobile had good stuff coming from that leaked roadmap and waited forever for "project emerald".

I owned one. It was fast and worked well, but the battery life was horrendous. I only owned it for 2 months.Moto Droid 1->HTC Droid Incredible->Moto Droid X->HTC MyTouch 4G->T-Mo G2X(RETURNED)->HTC Sensation->Sony Xperia Play (The PlayStation Phone)

Besides, the MT4G is such a better phone and data speeds rock in my location. And you also might consider if you are wanting to go VZW and pay more for your service or go with TMO and I don't know about your area, but you could risk potential coverage issues.Moto Droid 1->HTC Droid Incredible->Moto Droid X->HTC MyTouch 4G->T-Mo G2X(RETURNED)->HTC Sensation->Sony Xperia Play (The PlayStation Phone)

If you want the Incredible for Verizon's network, then I would hold off and wait for their next big release, like the HTC Thunderbolt.
Again, all really depends what you are looking for in a phone -- you seem to want the best, however you seem to be having trouble accepting the fact that the Incredible is not the better performer, and the fact that the Incredible was released way back in April of last year (meaning it's almost at the 1 year mark, which seems like an eternity in the cell phone world).
EDIT: Also, I see you said you have good coverage from both....so besides looks, you really have no reason not to go for the MT4G.

Well... I think I spoke too soon. T-M coverage at my house is weird... normally it'll show 3 bars, but once every 10-20 mins it'll go down to nothing, with the phone displaying message that only limited connectivity is available. A minute later I'll have 3 bars again. Strangely, when I had AT&T, something similar was happening, although less frequently.
Sigh... I wonder if there is any sort of booster/amplifier that I can get for the house.

I wouldn't go with the Dinc now if you're on Verizon. Go for the upcoming HTC Thunderbolt. That phone looks awesome and is 4G. Of course Verizon will charge extra for 4G. I do believe the my touch 4g is the best android phone on T-Mobile next to the G2. I've had mine since Christmas and am loving it. Its so cool and a huge upgrade from the BlackBerry Curve 8900.
I actually did consider the Incredible and was willing to go to Verizon but luckily I came to my senses because Verizon is so much more money. The Dinc will be a year old in April. I just can't see buying it now because I know I'd be kicking myself like crazy once the Thunderbolt comes out.
The money part is not that big of a deal for me. My company will be footing majority of it.
Thunderbolt seems to be as big as Droid X, which I dismissed due to size (too big!), so I'm not really interested in it. Besides, I need a phone NOW! Looks like I might look at Droid 2 again...
