    Default Thinking getting an Incredible... BB user here

    For the record... I have been a BB user for years and I'm just sick and tired of the OS

    To save some time on my reasons of jumping ship to droid... read here

    Now I was gonna was going to wait till next year before going Droid... Cause as soon as I saw the "Dell Thunder" I said I want that phone!!!

    But I don't think I can wait that along... same goes for BB OS6

    So I been reading up on the Incredible... and I gotta say I like

    I read some reviews and I think I might just get this phone... is the screen really that bad in sunlight ?

    Screen is hard to see outside, but so was my BB.
    Everything except the battery is better on the Incredible......
    I haven't regretted it once.
    I get 8 hrs on the standard battery but I am in the minority.
    There is no sleeper magnet...which I miss from BB but other than that this is a solid device.

    basically agree with everything tony said.

    screen sucks in the sunlight and battery dies quick. i can live with it though because the phone is that much better than having a BB.

    I was boating last weekend and it was a very sunny day and with the screen turned all the way up I didn't have any problems seeing the screen.

    S2 is quite capable....
    You could also put it on ebay or the crackberry WTS forum and see what you get for it, then it makes up the difference.

    Even if your carrier won't let you upgrade yearly, if you buy a good phone it can often keep alot of its value for a year so you might only end up paying $200 net or so if you have to buy a new phone unsubsidized.

    Think I have a better Idea... I have a line that's been open before the $350ETF thing

    It's currently being used by my sister and a BB Tour ( Doing her a favor... as long as she pays her part of the bill I don't care).

    If I cancel that line, it should only cost me $120-$130 something... give my sister the line I'm using and open a new contract... but that's a last resort considering how long I can put up with this BB

    I haven't a clue on how to sell this... I think I stepped on the original box lol

    My 9700 sold within 3 hours @ the 300 dollar buy it now price on ebay without the original box.

    If your sisters line in not under contract, you can upgrade her phone. Then activate the new phone on your phone number. Her phone would still be on her line (with 2 year contract) and the new phone would be on your #.
    I thought I loved my Q :o ....... I think I love my curve ...... I hope I'll love my Incredible!

    For me, going from the BB to the Incredible, was like going from a rotary dial phone to a computer. There is simply no comparison... with the possible exception of email. I came from the BB curve and I am amazed by this phone.

    I went from an original Curve which i loved dearly, to a Storm 1 and a Storm 2. I tried to give each a chance but after a couple copies of each, i got fed up. A change was needed and im not looking back, Incredible FTW

    I agree with everything being said in this thread. I still love bb, but they just weren't moving at the speed of other companies in respect to the OS. BB is still the leader in email and messaging in my opinion, but the incredible dominates in every other field.
    This thing is faster than my itouch.

    If you are a heavy email user, it will take some getting used to, but I guarantee you will be in love with this phone after one day.

    I have the first BB Storm, and it BLOWS! I get so frustrated with the typing on that phone. I just ordered the Incredible yesterday. I have had a BB for the past 4 years, the only thing I will miss is BB messenger, but I will try and get everyone I know on Google Talk. I am ready to move up and on with the Incredible, at least until Verizon gets the iPhone.

    I came to Android from BB and have really been enjoying it. I would not hold off on making the move. Do it now and step up to what mobile technology should be.
