    Incredible for my first smart phone?

    I know it's been asked before. I have a old cell phone now and all I do is talk on it. No text's no internet, all I've ever done was download a ring tone.
    Now I think i want a smartphone. A fried has an iphone and the games and instant internet access is cool. I don't do facebook, probably won't take many pictures and I likely won't text as I don't have that on my plan. I have played with the incredible in the store but don't really know how it compares to others. I don't understand these terms I hear like sense, root, ui etc...
    I like the size and feel of the incredible, but I'm not sure i could use it to it's potential. What I'm reading about the battery scares me. Really, I just want a fast phone that I can get apps and internet on. I don't like the physical keyboard on the droid. Should I take the plunge and use my NE2 on the inc or try a second hand eris or something? Will they have better batteries for the inc? Sorry for the long post.

    Yea u should get the Incredible. I read battery life is about the same on the Eris, so get a more up to date phone.

    How cheap can u get the Eris tho?

    No idea. I'll probably go by vzw tonight. I just hate to pay for a phone. I've always gone the cheap route and got an older phone. What is sense and why is it better than the plane old droid?

    Whether you like Sense or not is a matter of personal preference. I had the Droid for 3 months which runs vanilla Android, and I prefer Sense. IMO it seems more like a launcher with some custom widgets tied to it, but underneath it does have some nice subtle touches that I like. Overall it just seems like a more polished version of Android, but you're not going to see a huge difference between the two other than the launcher and widgets. And others may disagree, but in my experience the DI is waaaaaaay smoother than the Droid, overclocked or otherwise. I think you'd be happier with the Incredible based on what you want it for. Keep in mind you're not just paying for a phone, you're paying for a tiny little computer that does much more than make phone calls.

    Also if you check Amazon you can get the Incredible for 149.00 with a new contract. I think VZ is 199.00 after rebate.

    Sense - think Aero and the user interface upgrade for Vista/Win 7 vs. plain old XP.

    Well...if its the price...What about the Droid? Is it cheaper where u at? I know u said u dont like the physical keyboard.....

    I think u can get Droids dirt cheap at places online with a new contract. U can get a Droid as low as $19.99 from Amazon and Wirefly with a new contract or upgrade.

    Low price: Eris free or Droid $19.99 (but Droid has a physical keyboard) with a new contract/upgrade at Amazon, Wire Fly.

    Higher Price - Incredible, but its a more up to date phone and doesnt have a keyboard.

    And are u eligible for a New Every 2 upgrade? Check out those 2 sites for prices. And with the Incredible under 200 with new contract or upgrade, even if that's not considered cheap to u, its still waay better than full price.

    I was thinking of getting either the Moto Droid or the Incredible, but I just found out that you can't do hands free dialing with your blue tooth headset with either phone. If you need to use your phone while driving I would recommend waiting until they fix this issue.

    Just curious are there any other phones coming out in the next month or so that would rival the Incredible? I just found out about the Galaxy S but I think I would rather have the Inc.

    I went by Verizon tonight for a test drive but they had already closed.

    There may be within the next 1-4 months, but price wise they probably will be near the Incredible's price range. IF u can wait I would suggest it. Then u would have even more choices. I kinda wished I woulda waited to use my NE2 upgrade now.
