    Droid Incredible for 120 bucks or Blunderbolt?? Need a good phone for work!!

    Hey guys, I have recently sold my iphone on the assumption that the blunderbolt would release on the 14th, then the 24th... You get the idea. I have to have a smartphone for work. A good camera for product pictures, good service, internet for looking up important stuff, and gps to find job sites. I dont know how much longer I can wait. Its seriously starting to cripple me!! I can add a line on my pop's account with a refurb Incredible for only 120 on a one year contract. That is a pretty good deal!!! But i have also been waiting for the blunderbolt since OCTOBER. I really really want this phone!! The family business pays for these phones, as they are used for work, so cost is not really prohibitive here.

    I am stuck for time, and really need a smartphone soon. I know I may regret buying the dinc, when the tb comes out like a week or two later but... Ahhhhh!!!!

    Any suggestions on a short term fix? Cave and buy the dinc? Wait for the blunderbolt? Buy a old beat up droid to hold me over?

    Oh and this nokia 2610 is... is... bad. Help!! lol
    Cheers!

    if you can't wait, buy an incredible (or whatever phone) on ebay/CL. when the TB (finally) comes out, just sell the incredible. you likely won't lose much money (assuming you research what a good price is before buying). that way you aren't sucked into a contract and can get the TB for the 2yr price. i might have to do this if the TB doesn't come out before the last week of march as i am going to need a smartphone that week.

    Well, you could get the dinc now, & then surely the tb will be out before your return period is up?

    Edit: I'd personally get a dx before a dinc though, it'd get you a bit more use to the size of the tb. + its a great phone anyway

    Really? SURELY? I'd like to think you're right, but I don't know if I'd bet my upgrade on it...

    D INC is a good phone... just to small for those of us with big hands.. I heard the battery life is not that good though from a friend of mine...

    I do need a bigger screen, but i hate motoblur. Lol that leaves me with nothing really as the blunderbolt is more vaporware than it is a real phone.

    Huh, i didnt know rooting totally removed the 'skin'. I thought it just removed bloat ware. So youre saying that its possible to have 'pure' google on the droid x/incredible just like the nexus one?? That would be awesome!! Maybe I should just buy a dinc while they are so cheap...
    Cheers!

    Are you a Best Buy customer? They are the only ones to have ever released a supposed release date, and even then, they retracted it. I believe at the CES Verizon just said 1st Qtr of 2011, so they have until the end of this month to release it.

    Having used the phone for the past two days, I think it's ready for release and my gut tells me you will see it on the 10th.

    You may want to check eBay for an old used Android phone that works but has a cracked screen or something. I've seen LG Ally phones for under $50.
