Hello everyone. This is my first post here, though I've been lurking for a while.
My employer soon will be changing the way it handles cell phones for employees, and for the first time in 10 years or so, I will be buying my own phone and plan. I've made two decisions: first, I definitely will be staying with Verizon; second, I really like the HTC Incredible.
So here's my question. Reading through posts here and on the new incredibleforum.com, it appears as though there are many, many people having a very wide variety of problems with the phone. I'm interested in your thoughts: Is this just because forum messages generally tend to be posted by people seeking some kind of help for a problem?
In other words, does the Incredible at this point have some serious hardware and/or software and/or firmware problems, or is there a silent majority of Incredible owners out there whose phones are working just fine and doing exactly what they're supposed to be doing?
I have probably four weeks or so before I will be making a final decision, but I have to admit, reading these forums has made me a bit leery of getting such a new phone.
Really, I'm curious in people's opinions on this. I'm coming from a BlackBerry Curve, and would love to make the switch to an Android-based phone, but don't really like the idea of having a slider.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
