    An observation..skewed, not sure.

    Ok, I've had the X since yesterday, so I am giving it more time, but I traded my DINC in to get this thing.

    So far I've noticed a few things that I have some concern over, another, not such a biggy.

    I really liked the DIC's home page, the clock and weather widget was so cool and very accurate, and it came like that. I did download the app for the X but its not as nice as the 'stock' on for the DIC.

    The one thing that really is getting me worried is the network. I am constantly losing the network, be it Wifi or 3G, or even the phone call strength.

    I can be in the same spots in the house with the X, or outside, and it is constantly dropping the signal and looking again. I can turn off the wifi when outside and it has a heck of a time finding the 3G, but the DINC found it and locked on, hard, and never lost it.

    And people are telling me I am constantly breaking up, at my house, when on the phone. Again, with the DIC I never had that problem.

    Now with the DINC, I didn't like the smaller screen, and the only real problem I had was it was starting to reboot, (a known issue, but with a fix in the works..>)........

    So I am hoping the network issue is a glitch, but losing it when downloading apps, or doing Gchat, is very annoying, especially when I maybe was spoiled with the HTC DINC.

    Just my 2cents.

    Well, that will be interesting to see how that all comes out of the wash.

    My question to you is what made you want to trade in the Incredible in the first place? This had to be a 30 day exchange, correct?

    I'm not having that issue but some people on the other forums have mentioned similar problems. There is info on an update (due within the next week I believe)posted on Verizon's site that includes a baseband update that might take care of the issue you're having. So hold on a while longer. If it does not help, then get a replacement. Like I said, mine has been solid and has no connection issues.

    Hook, the main reason was the bigger screen...big hands, bigger keyboard, and yes, I was in the 30 day window. Darren, I will ck it out, I obviously have almost a month to see if I can get some help on the issue.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that 30 day period goes from your first phone. It doesn't get extended when you get a different phone.

    Haha, In May I had the upgrade and got a middle of the road Samsung, did not like it, and sent it back in, not for an exchange, just because I didn't like it. No restocking fee if you do this.

    Then I got the DIC, didn't like it, sent it back in, no restocking fee. My upgrade put back on...got the X, 191.00 overnighted.

    I do have a partial answer for you, jetdoc.

    Regarding losing 3G at your house, this is actually planned functionality on the DX.

    I have noticed that when the phone is successfully connected to a WiFi network, the 3G automatically drops out to save battery life. You can test this yourself by using the Moto Widget to turn off your WiFi hardware. You should see the 3G icon reappear within a few seconds. Turn the WiFi back on, and 3G will disconnect again almost instantly.

    Regarding the other connection problems, I have no answer.

    AZ, I was wondering if you have Wifi on, how does it know which to connect to, or stay with, seems it would be conflicting...? I do turn my wifi on and off, but not through a widget but going through 'settings' and turning on and off, that is the same, yes..?

    I have not tested the phone away from home with just 3G available as I just got it late yesterday.

    Right now, in my house its shows both 3G and the wifi signal, no kidding, haha. Now lost 3G....

    Would setting in 'location and security settings' do anything..? I have only 'use GPS satellites' checked. 'Use wireless networks' is not ticked. 'Enabled assist GPS' is not ticked either.

    Mule, I've done star 228, 2 a few times Now I am out in the sticks, so maybe the DIC just had incredible reception, because its not unusual to have piss poor cell reception out here, but the DIC was rock solid.

    I am going to the store in a bit, so I will see how the 3G works out in the real world, lol
