    HTC M7 rumored. Look at Mobile World Congress In early Fe. as the platform HTC will use, as is their customary route, to reveal their hero devices for 2013.

    We'll see a new One line then.

    The M7 may be announced next week at CES in Las Vegas. Keep your eyes open for it!

    Note: I have one htc one x, and like the phone very much.
    "Released" and "officially announced" are two different things.

    I don't think HTC has any press conferences planned for CES.

    I don't think HTC will give up the chance to at least do some sort of teaser... M7 has to go up against Samsung S3, S4, Note2, Note3... Big year for everyone, also to capitalise on a bit of slowing momentum on iPhone.

    Manufacturers know they gotta get the flagship products right because the low and mid-end ain't gonna carry 'em. High-End and High-Mid is where things are going down big time this year.

    The issue is also all this carrier exclusive stuff, not going to cut it going up against Samsung.

    Droid DNA and One X Plus if marketed and polished right would have done better than all this exclusive stuff.

    I wonder how much they get from Verizon alone man it must be a big chunk of cash.

    Last I heard, the DROID DNA was a collaboration between Verizon and HTC where Verizon asked HTC to build a phone (vs. HTC prototyping then taking it to Verizon). The J Butterfly supposedly came after the DNA. If this is true, I don't blame HTC at all for the DNA having Verizon exclusivity. Come to think of it, I think I've seen more ads on TV for the DNA than I have for the One X.

    That said, I don't have high hopes that HTC is going to do the right things in 2013. In 2012, they claimed that the focus would be on the three One-series phones, V, S, and X. Yet we're seeing things like the DROID Incredible 4G LTE, EVO 4G LTE, along with the One SV and One XV and One X+. I would like to see HTC scale back like they said they would.

    Argh, I lost my HTC Droid Incredible 2 (Dinc2) phone! Luckily, I am eligible for the verizon upgrade and had downloaded the most important data..

    I would like to get the same Dinc2 on the same plan (unlimited data, voice and texting), but alas Verizon no longer has the HTC Droid Incredible 2 available and the unlimited data plan have changed. I like the HTC part... but do not need a super fancy or fast phone. (Husband has HTC Thunderbolt and likes it)

    The Dinc2 was my first smart phone and worked fine for my uses including (in order of heavy use): calls, texting, email, navigation!, voice to text (that microphone button), googlemaps, a handful of apps, internet searches, LOADS of photo taking, some video, pandora, radio and occasional games or video watching. Id' love something that is about as efficient, battery-strong and long-lasting.

    PLAN
    My choice for plans is to get the discounted/upgraded/subsidized phone, which annoyingly kicks me off the unlimited data to a comparably priced 2G for one penny more!

    My concern about losing unlimited (or having to pay per gig) is that I have steadily become a higher-data user; we have kids, so I expect we will soon be adding more data and finally, I have wondered about using the phone for our home wireless instead of current cable model.

    To protect the plan, I'd have to get a phone through Verizon or non-Verizon venues (e.g., Best Buy, Walmart, Target) at full price ($200- 300). Paying full price may seem like a low one-time cost vs. losing the whole plan. Or, I could try to find a phone on Craig's List, Ebay etc

    PHONE
    I had not been able to find the HTC Dinc2, but someone said I might be able to find it at like Radio Shack or something. But, if I can't find another Dinc2 and do use my upgrade, what would you recommend as a replacement? (My husband has and likes his Thunderbolt... though that seems mostly out of stock as well.)

    If I don't use my upgrade and try to get a phone through craig's list or ebay, what should I get - the original HTC Droid Incredible? I figure I'd pay less... - but I am not so knowledgeable about this stuff, so that makes me nervous.

    Any advice is appreciated. Thank you! (Sorry if this is the wrong forum... I am also new to this and could not figure out how to post)

    Go to eBay, buy a Dinc2, take to VZW store and have it activated on your account. No changes to your plan and you keep your unlimited data. You could do the same with any other phone too.

    Welcome! For your needs and wants I would look into getting the HTC Incredible 4G LTE. It is essentially the Incredible 3, and it was just released this last summer. I don't know how much it's going for but it should be right for you :-)

    Thanks for the replies. Just a note that the "expansys" link did not work.
    However, I did find a Cnet article about verizon wireless plan considerations (I know perhaps off topic, but interesting)
