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.

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.Droid Incredible (4/29/10) -> TBolt (4/9/11) -> GNex (4/1/2012) > Droid Maxx (9/13/13)
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

Re: Thinking getting an Incredible... BB user here
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.
