    I already ordered my Incredible with Verizon and was just reading up on it. I read somewhere that I will miss calls if I'm browsing the internet on the phone because it can't do data and voice at the same time. Is this true?

    An incoming call will interrupt your data connection. Data will automatically reconnect when the call is over.

    Correct. A call takes priority over data.

    As it should.

    This is for the former Droid owners. Does it seem like the Incredible gives more priority to incoming calls? Or am I just crazy? It seemed like my Moto would almost hiccup on incoming calls but the Incredible seems to handle them better.

    Yeah it seems the Incredible handles incoming calls a little better. That is thanks to the upgraded specs of the Incredible though.

    No. But it WILL scare the crap out of you when it happens ;)

    Especially if you are looking at something you shouldn't be!

    With text you shouldnt have a problem but with Being on the internet when a phone call comes in, you will be booted from the Internet for the phone call.

    Hahah reminds me of when Steve Jobbs was trying to slam Droid by saying "if you want porn get a droid". Like no one will surf porn on an iPhone via Opera.
