    Should I buy the Incredible now, or wait?

    If the Incredible was available right now, I would probably go to the store after work today and buy one.

    However, since its not going to be available now til the end of the month, I am wondering if I should wait to get something else like the Shadow or the Xtreme. Will these phones really be that much better, or will I just be mad that I will have to wait even longer to buy the Incredible?

    Hi DroidDamask,

    I am in your shoes as well, except that I ordered the Incredible last week before the news of X/Xtreme/Shadow was leaked.. I have to admit that a part of me wants to cancel my order and wait a month or two for the next gen Motorola to come out. The specs look amazing so far!

    But, I have decided to hold my breath and wait for the AMOLED shortage to subside knowing that I will have my first droid phone sometime before the middle of June. Many sites speculate that the newer phones won't hit until August and I just don't want to wait that long and possibly deal with another shortage of phones, especially seeing how many MotoDroid fans there seems to be.

    It's hard to stay at the top of technology unless you buy a new phone every 3-6 months, ya know?! (IMHO of course!)

    Go get the Incredible, it is truly Incredible, and once Android "Froyo" Frozen Yogurt 2.2 comes out it will be all that much better and faster. In regards to the Motorola Shadow, yes it looks like a sweet phone, but you will have to wait for it, and for me it is a bit to big for a cell phone-smartphone, the Incredible is just right.

    I joined the forum just to tell this story.
    I went to a local mall verizon store, they said 3 weeks wait time.
    I went to a Best Buy in the same mall and they had them. Bought it on the spot, and I'm very happy.

    PhilaPete- But did you have to buy a new plan?

    I already have an existing plan with Verizon and my contract is up. I thought I had to buy it directly from Verizon...

    Thanks for sharing philaPete! *fighting back jealously*

    Just out of curiosity, which part of the country are you in? I called all the Best Buys around me out here in Southern California and they are all sold out. But I hear that is the case.. west coasters are outta luck while midwestern and eastern seaboard folks have no problems. Lame! hehe

    If you are due for an upgrade, you will get the $199 price if you renew for another 2 years with VZW. If you are not eligible, you have to pay full price which I believe is $500 or so.

    I believe you can purchase the phone from any Verizon retailer so long as you sign a new 2 year agreement.

    Re: Should I buy the Incredible now, or wait?

    I got an early upgrade promo in Apr. I grabbed the Droid. I learned about the Inc. a few weeks after. At the time I wanted a slide out keyboard, so I didn't want the Inc.

    Now, it doesn't matter. My 30 days is passed.

    I wish I woulda waited. I rarely use the slide out keyboard. I woulda had the Inc., and at least 2 other phones to choose from around this time. More choices is never a bad thing.

    And best believe, after the specs woulda came out, I woulda grabbed the Shadow in a heart beat.

    For what it is worth, all of the Best Buy stores near me are now doing a pre-order system for all HTC Incredibles. They ask you to buy a $50 gift card and then put your name on the list. When the phone arrives you take your $50 card in and get your phone - the $50 is applied to the purchase price.

    I also just called Verizon to confirm that I could cancel my online order if I wished to, and they said NO! Really? No way to cancel it.. hmm.. She also mentioned that if you buy the phone through a 3rd party reseller (ala Best Buy), you will have to sign an additional contract with them above and beyond the Verizon contract. Yuck. Sounds a bit messy to me. Think I will just hold on to my britches and wait for FedEx to come a-knockin on my door.

    She did confirm that so far the date listed on the order page has been met with quite a few being shipped ahead of the promised date. There is hope!
