    what is it that you are looking for?

    The cons on this phone is that is doesn't have LTE. Some want a dual core or better battery. Also some complain of the speaker.

    I find the battery life good. I can go a day easy.and the last few days after and update I go 18 hrs on half a charge. The phone is zippy for most, and most will say rooting it makes it faster. It does have a lot of VZW bloat on it.

    I'm sure you can find it cheaper though. Amazon has it for a penny upgrade.

    There should be enough memory on it for you.

    i just need it for an everyday phone, i only go on the internet to check facebook quick and look stuff up, i mostly text, and coming from the droid 2 i dont think the battery life on the inc2 will be much of a difference, i was just wondering if there was any big problems with it i was looking a the bionic but i dont wanna play 300 dollors for a phone that 4g isnt even available in my area .

    Go to wirefly.com and get it for free. They have a 30 day return policy and no deductible insurance. If you don't like it they include a postage paid return label in the box, then get a different phone. I absolutely love my dinc2 and so does my wife. Size is perfect, nice screen, HTC has some nice widgets, and as stated good battery life after a few charge ups. Only negative for me was the HTC keyboard. I downloaded the gingerbread keyboard and now I'm using TouchPal. No complaints now.

    Short story is they get a comission from VZW when they do a deal, they basically pass along some savings. Say a phone is $500 retail and they get $600 each sale, so they give it free and pocket $100.

    If you look at the bottom of their site and Walmart, Costco, sams, Target, they are all processed via the same company, I forget the name. They are basically wirefly, as the address are the same for both.

    Just look at the terms. If you cancel service with 3 or 6 months you get charged by them in addition to VZW. But if you stay with VZW then no problems

    +1 to this, me too. CM7 and the Tiamat kernel make this phone the BEST of VZW's non-4G devices.

    Personally, while I love my DINC2, I do have signal issues. While I have been in a low signal area for years, the Dinc2 is worse then my Fascinate, X, and Charge (various work phones). The SenseUI is the best, and rivals Apple'a IOS. But my next investment will be the network! 4G LTE here I come. The new Pantech 4G is $149 after $50 rebate. Even if you don't have 4G yet, when it does kick in, its like a mini upgrade during the life of your contract. I would invest in 4G. 10 times faster then 3G? Have you see all the speed comparisons between Verizon vs all the others? Hands down the winner is 4G! I have also read about the 4G Samsung with keyboard. Search for Samsung i405! 4G! 4G!

    It's a great phone. I just recently switched from the bionic which had HORRIBLE battery life. My wife and I both have one as well. Awesome screen, widgets, and amazing battery life. I love the sense UI also.

    Damn keyboard. Lol.

    some folks have done it and then either told wirefly or VZW and it gets fixed.
