    How did you finally get them to do it? Mine is scheduled to be shipped by 6/30 and I just got back from the verizon store where they told me there was nothing they could do...i just want to cancel and pre-order the X asap
    The last person I talked to didn't say she couldn't cancel the order, like the other reps did, she just said she would put a note onto my account making the request. I suppose asking them to do this would be the way to go. Good luck.

    Although I'd love to have the huge screen of the Droid X, I prefer the smaller profile of the Droid 2 and will wait for that to come out in August. Which phone were you thinking of switching to?

    ya I just love HTC. They make exceptional quality devices. Who needs a big screen anyways. I'd rather buy a tablet if the screen is 4.4".

    The Incredible is just art. It small size is just perfect for me. I can hold it one hand and in the other I can hold my remote. Perfect combination. I have small hands so the X will just be touch device for me to hold.

    Everything on the X is overblown Motorola crap. They are a ****ty company who should be abolished in IMHO.

    Stupid Droid was like a brick metal case. Who wants that crap.

    I like the small sexy, good enough for a womans hands, and iphone looking device.

    now that i've already made a commitment to the Incredible do you think there's any chance in hell I'd be willing to admit the X kicks ***.

    hello no I will remain loyal to my Incredible and will incessantly deny any advantage the may have. Even if it does have an advantage I will try my darndest to minimize and parody it.

    HDMI out is probably the stupid thing ever. I mean I have a camera filled with video from me and my families boring trips to NJ. Can you believe I've yet to use the HDMI out on the camera. Turns out no one wants to watch my boring videos I created.

    Since this is true on my camera, I will find no use for The X's HDMI out, even though it will be capable of outputting videos from the internet and elsewhere.

    In fact I think someone from this forum jumped ship from the Incredible JUST because it looks too much like the iPhone. Silly...but whatever.
    That would be.. I equate the iphone as a womans phone.

    i figure the X is a more masculine device. On top of the additional advantages it has over the INC

    I meant no offense, by the way. I can see where you're coming from. Guess that's why Moto/Verizon launched the "it's not a princess, it's a robot" campaign.

    I hope VZW does same deal as ATT is doing with the iPhone. I'm finding no love with incredible no good rooting no roms. No accesorys its just here. As for sense I don't use it. Reception sucks battery sucks feels Like a toy.

    I have the option to upgrade. It will be within my 30 days that it will be launched (probably).

    However, I think I've decided to stay with the Incredible. The sizes of todays phones are ridiculous. 3.7"... That's where its at. Even Apple thought so (3.5").

    Personally, 4.3/4.3" is too big. Hardware is nice, but its too big.

    No offense taken.

    Ya i prefer diversity then everything looking identical. If i can't have people distinguish my Android device from a iphone, I feel as though I've already lost.

    Bottom line I don't want anyone mistaking my device for an iphone.

    Yea verizon told me today they couldn't cancel my incredible but just to order the x when it comes out btw they couldn't give me a rime frame or pricing and the Inc would be cancelled or I wouldn't have to send it straight back when I get it. I'm kinda looking foward to giving ninjablur a try again I've got this eris.and run launcher pro white I like more the sense sense is cool and all. But if some one can explain why the x has more CPU power but it's underclocked? Will that make it slower then the incred? Kinda like buying a lambo with 500 horses but it's governed at 250 I dunno

    As bad as I hate to say this, but that's freakin pathetic. Who gives a flying rats butt about what someone thinks about your device. You should buy devices for what you need or want it to do not what other people think about it. With that kind of thinking you might as well jump over with the iTards and get version 4.....

    You dump a phone because someone think it looks like an iPhone.
    You dump a phone because since someone thinks it looks like an iPhone you deem it a chic phone.
    You dump a phone because people can't tell the difference between what you have an anyone else has.

    I don't understand.

    Im excited about the size of this phone honestly. I use my phone more for texting then talking nowadays, and the only reason I dont use it for internet more often is because its a horrendous blackberry storm.

    To me, a miniature tablet pc that can make phone calls in a pinch is just more useful.

    My Incredible is supposed to ship on 6/25, so I figure by the end of my 30 days I will be ready to decide if I want to bail on it or not.

    I'm done chasing Android and the new devices...I have my Incredible and I'm going to make myself stick with this phone for a while.

    After all, if I chase down the latest and greatest all the time, I will have to find a divorce attorney cuz my wife will not be happy...lol. But hey, on the brighter side I may be able to be on here more!

    I guess I hit bottm with new phones finally. Thanks to the Incredible that is. Perfect size as others pointed out. I had the Moto-Droid (my first android phone), but didn't like the weight or the slide out... Prior to the Blackberry Storm,,, it just sucked.

    I now watch all the tremendous Android phones that are coming out, and I am ironically still satisfied with my Dinc...

    I agree Qazme....who cares what others think?
    My win mobile phone looked like a bb and I would get asked all the time.....I used to say no its windows mobile, but now it's "Is that an iphone or a droid? I say neither, its an incredible." or I will just say none of your business

    The DInc still fits my needs. I moved from Tmo to Verizon to get this phone. None of the 4+" inch screens appeal to me as they don't seem to be as portable as the DInc.

    Since phone specs and features are changing rapidly, I went with a one year contract as I will probably want to change phones this time next year.

    I completely agree. I always signed for two because the phone prices always said *requires two year contract.

    My advice is to pay the extra $35-$40 up front for the phone and sign for 1 year. For us tech nerds, two years with the same phone is unreasonable.

    If I want the most practical phone, and still the best on the market, get the Incredible.

    If I wanted an iPad, I wouldn't settle on an imitation Droid X.

    You don't have to sign a one year contract to upgrade every year. Verizon lets you upgrade every 12 months anyway.

    Oh, and if I was in the OP's shoes, I'd ditch the Incredible and go for the Droid X. Motorola makes better high end Droids than HTC.

    get the incredible now and then upgrade with the 2ghz motorola droid coming at the end of the year. the ceo already said they'll be having a 2ghz phone with everything technologically possible in it. i'm buying and incredible then just in time for my actual contract renewal, i'll be able to get that new fast droid.

    How can you upgrade every 12 months if you have a 2 years contract? Is there an additional fee to do so?

    I'll probably be selling my Inc on craigslist or Ebay to get some cash to put towards the Droid X. If Verizon wasnt so god damn stubborn and given back my money as I requested when I went into the store on the day of my 30 day warranty from them I wouldnt have to worry about selling it but now I do. My bad experiences with Verizon has left a sour taste in my mouth and dont intend on doing business with them much longer if it keeps up.

    Motorola makes better high end droids? Huh? they made one good droid... HTC has now made the Incredible and the Evo4G. The marketing on the MotoDroid was insane compared to what I saw for the Incredible and the Inc is still holding its own. Being out for almost two months and still being requested all the time. If you consider crappy keyboards and even worse typing a feature of a "high end droid" then I guess you are right.

    Wonder if he means the make of the device itself? I have to be honest, my first MotoDroid was built amazing. Thing felt like a brick but it gave me a sense of peace if it dropped out of my pocket where with my Inc. I hold onto dear life when I have that thing because it just feels cheesy as all hell. I love the device and what it can do but the make is terrible.
