    So is it worth getting or should I wait?

    Found a good deal on an Incredible and am really thinking about picking it up. My biggest issue I guess is all the problems I have been reading about on here about the 2.2 Froyo update and all the problems it has been causing for everyone.

    So my question is... is it worth getting the Droid Incredible? I dont wanna get stuck with a phone thats automatically going to give me problems.

    Thanks in advance

    I have not had any problems with my phone. Before or after the update. A great phone. Best I've had so far.

    the incredible is a great phone. i love it and have had no update problems. (the droid1 had update problems, i dont think the incredible did)

    it will probably be outdated by the end of the year, but its still a great phone, and wont be crushed by the new phones for a while

    Since I've heard more good things about the Incredible than negative, I decided to buy one a couple months ago. All in all, the Incredible is just that - INCREDIBLE! Performance and looks is great and battery performance is okay but I remedied that issue with a couple 2150 batteries, the OEM battery, and a Seidio wall charger. No more "bump charging" which I find ridiculous. I am up for an phone upgrade in about 8 months so in the meantime I'll get my monies worth out of the Incredible and get more knowledgeable about smartphones and apps.

    this phone its truly incredible. I went from a Palm Treo 755p to a Motorola Droid, then I turned that in before30 days and got the Incredible. I have had no problems with it, to the contrary, its great sI am never without it. Except that it sucks batteries like lemonade. I must carry a spare battery with me if I'm not going to be near a charger.

    I don't have an Dinc, but a very good friend has one and it blazes compaired to my D1. We both manually downloaded Froyo and Flash and we both opened web sites at the same time and his always left my D1 in the dust. The only problem he has is battery life.
    If I could upgrade it would be the Dinc, although the huge screen on the DX is very tempting.

    Pain or damage or even beatings don't end the world. The world end when you're dead. Until then you have more punishment store. Stand out like a man and give some back. Oh yeah I still use Tapatalk.

    I got my Incredible 2 days ago. It came out of the box with 2.2. I love this phone. No problems yet. It even works as a wifi hotspot!

    It's definitely a great phone. When it comes to waiting, though, that's really up to you. There's always a newer and better phone going to come out after, so it just depends on your patience. I however love my incredible and wouldn't trade it for anything
