    Cool Droid Incredible HELP!! Buy now or wait????

    Ok, so i'm in a bit of a pickle... I am currently a Storm1 owner and cannot WAIT to get rid of this piece of garbage!(Shame on you RIM!!) Lately, I have been on the Android forums more than the Blackberry ones, which is sad for a Blackberry and non-android user. After much research I am convinced that my next phone is THE Incredible. I just can't get over how many good things people are saying on all the forums about this phone. I can get through the battery issues with no problem, it can't be as bad as having 2.0MB app memory to work with on the Storm, which slowly leaks away anyway until my phone freezes up.
    Yeah, i'll miss the Blackberry Messenger, but its a small price to pay for a phone that works! lol....So here's my dillemma:

    My NE2 upgrade isnt unil mid-October where I can get the $100 off of my primary line. But I can get the 2yr price now for an extra $20 upgrade fee. Do you guys think it is worth the $120 that I could save in 3 months to upgrade to the droid now, or should I stick it out with the storm? or should I just get out now while i can? By October will the DIncs be shipping with froyo? Sorry I am just so excited to ditch the Berry and become an android guy. Basically, I am willing to pi$$ away $120 just to not have to use the Storm anymore. So should I??? Any input would be greatly appreciated! I AM READY TO BE ON THE ANDROID TRAIN!!!!!(Better late than never!!)

    The question is whether or not the hundred bucks is worth it. I think if I had the Storm for another 3 months I might start tweezing my nose hairs....

    I say go for it.

    Yeah ive talked to people at 2 stores called customer service twice, and theyre not budging on it, telling me i have to wait. I even told them the last time how much i hated the storm and the way VZW handled it. But i'm thinking about calling customer service again later this week and try again.

    Yeah, since a lot of people were offered early upgrades for the Incredible.

    Edit: Nevermind. lol


    It probably depends on who you talk to, but I'd give it another go. I've never had luck with VZW like some people do.

    I didn't get offered the early upgrade price from the Storm I was on, I demanded it. I was 8 months out from my NE2 You know it's not hard to swap service providers now a days. Do like I did call and let them know how disappointed you are in the Storm, how it locks up, how you have to hard reset, all that jazz. Then let them know you like the EVO too, and Sprints price plan looks pretty good. They will budge.

    But honestly if they don't do anything for you wait it out. They are on backorder now anyways and in 3 months they will probably, hopefully, not be. It's worth saving $100+ dollars, I mean it's a good phone but not that good, I wouldn't have paid more than $199 for it.
    The Storm has cleared to an Incredible day! I ate an IceCream Sandwhich. Still needed JellyBeans. ;-)

    Dude, I had the Storm 1 before I got my Inc. And honestly if I knew what I know about this phone before I upgraded, I would have been willing to pay full retail to get this phone and be rid of the storm. Do it, now. Right now, this second.

    Did you ask for a supervisor? They can't ask you if you would like to talk with one...you have to ask. Worked for me

    Having been in the nearly the same situation as you I decided the Incredible was too good to pass up. The 3 weeks I waited for it were well worth it. You won't be disappointed.

    I say buy immediately, sell your Storm to offset some of the price, and while you are at it, think about purchasing on a 1 year price....this allows you to not have to wait as long to upgrade.

    I was a victim of the Storm 1.
    I kept putting off upgrading at the 2 year price, thinking the Storm 3 might
    come out.

    Then, I saw this phone in the store, and forgot about BB immediately!

    Get rid of the Storm ASAP! You won't be sorry. I LOVE this phone!

    It makes The Storm look like the piece of garbage that it really is.

    I like yourself came from a BB Storm. I have to say that the DINC is by far & away a much better phone than the Storm ever wished it could have become. I am so much happier with the Android OS, the Sense UI & the reliability of the phone itself. No longer to I have to try & explain why my phone needs to have the battery pulled & reboot the phone at least once a day.

    The losing of BBM was a downside, that much I will give you, but everyone that I have spoken to that was on my BBM list, have all pretty much decided that they are going to move over to the Android Platform within the next year or so. They are just of RIMs OS, as most people are, the solution in the meantime is to have them install Gtalk on their phones & voila, problem solved. Either that or just go to regular texting on the phone.

    I was one of the idiots that got the storm1 the first day that it came out as well. I was sent an email from VZW back when they launched the first two droids offering me a free early upgrade(i figured it was because they know the storm blows), but I didn't care for either of those phones at the time. When the INC came out I was very interested and emailed them asking for that deal again. I received a reply that after looking at my account that I was not due for an upgrade until July something and that they were not able to offer me that deal. So, i replied to that email and asked what my early term fee was. Miraculously when they looked at my account this time they were able to offer me the early upgrade!!

    It sounds like you have multiple lines, so not sure if asking for your early term fee will work, but can't hurt to try..

    Well you could go for the Droid X and avoid that fee altogether since your contract ends in 2010.

    Either way, get rid of the BB!

    haha, yeah. I mean, You have a Storm, I was in that boat back in January. Honestly, I say go for it. This phone is 1000 times better than the Storm in every way. You will be extremely pleased with the operating system and the phone.

    Definitely ditch the BB! I have a storm 1 now and just ordered my Incredible last week, so I'm just beginning the wait

    You can get the early upgrade if you expire in 2010 and upgrade to any smartphone. It doesnt have to be the Droid X. I expire in December and got the 2 year pricing on the Incredible no questions asked. I didn't have to deal with a mail in rebate either.

    Go for it

    My sister has a storm, not sure which version, she hates it.
    Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

    I'd say sell the storm to make up the price difference too.I never had the storm but heard all the horror stories of ,lol .I had a 8330 til a week ago I had to wait about a month from the time I ordered it online til when I actually got it.But hopefully that whole process will speed up as soon as they get though testing the new sony TFT screens that will replace the AMOLED screens.

    Yeah I voted for you to keep it under the basis that you said your contract was coming up soon. Common sense for ya. Later you said it was like a year or more before you contract was up, can I change that vote lol. Thanks for being like that though....
