    A quick search on google of "verizon 2 day saturday" revealed a myriad of people asking if fed ex delivered on saturday from verizon. It seems alot of phones go out on thursday and are delayed until monday. even in this thread, a search of "monday" and "saturday" showed a lot of deliveries taking the weekend to arrive.

    I think with the number of packages that verizon delivers, fed ex would probably give them free saturday delivery service or at least at a significant reduction in cost.

    my mother always says: "maturity is the ability to delay satisfaction"

    i try to live that everyday. this, however, has no good reason. particularly from fedex. buncha crap that i cant even go get it on a saturday. also makes verizon's 2 day shipping look like a joke gimmick.

    im not mad by a long shot, so dont let this post make you think that. just wondering why things work in a stupid way. :confused:

    ORDERED: July 15th, around 4pm via website

    Just got email from VZW (July 25) that they shipped and will be overnight

    Im assuming monday or tuesday delivery?

    So thats within 15 days, the delay is definitely being reduced!

    Just hope i didnt get the new lower quality screen. I guess i did :(

    I don't think it's that big of a deal. HTC themselves said that the change would probably fly under the radar.

    All things considered I actually think it's better. As far as LCDs go, TFT is great in the sun. And it isn't subject to burn-it like the AMOLED either. Sony makes a pretty sweet screen, too, so I'm not worried.

    True, the colors won't be as vibrant, but people have been complaining about the over saturation on the Dinc since release. It won't be as bright either but I'm mostly indoors and full brightness is almost never needed on anyother mobile device. And at night, it won't be blinding when you go to answer that call from bed or read your ebook.

    "But AMOLED uses less power" you'll say. True, but the gains are marginal at best and only with dark areas (like alot of android menus and screens) but bright colors and whites (tons and tons of apps have white backgrounds) actually use less power on an LCD. It will make no difference.

    That being said, the AMOLED does have some cool colors and if I end up with one instead of the TFT I'll still be excited.

    I ordered around same time and had an expected ship date of 8/1 so maybe mine shipped also. dancedroid:icon_ banana:

    Since its a company phone I don't get the email and I don't want to ask the person who does. :icon_evil::)

    Hopefully Soon

    I have a corporate phone and just ordered my incredible on Friday 7/23, hopefully I get it before August. I've got no way to track it, it shows up when it shows up.

    3:15p: package got on a truck this morning at 7 and I still haven't seen it. I did see a FedEx truck drive by though. I hope he didnt just assume I wasnt home. I've had that happen before.
