    I am ready for upgrade and am trying to decide between moto droid or htc incredible. The slide out qwerty keyboard is not important to me. Looking for advice and opinions of which one to choose. I use internet and email a good bit. I will use the phone for business and personal use.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    When you said you don't need a physical keyboard, you said it all. Go with the Incredible.

    I went back and fourth for three+ weeks now between Droid and Incredible. I'm new to Smartphones like it sounds you are.

    Today I ordered an Incredible.

    If I already had a Moto Droid I would be perfectly content but, why not go latest/greatest while you can?

    So I'm going from a BB Tour>HTC Imagio> Moto Droid> HTC Incredible.....

    All within a year!

    Hi, My name is Joey...And I'm a Androidholic...


    What is crazy is that I just called VZW and I can get the Incredible for $150.00 with my NE2 plus $100 online instant rebate...

    Well, after 3 weeks with my Droid I am going with the Incredible. Not that I don't love my Droid but I don't use the physical keyboard and the hardware on the Incredible looks to be pretty impressive. As fast as these phones are coming to the market with faster, smoother, bla bla I might as well get the latest gadget out there. It'll only be a short time before more phones become available....

    Funny, I'm making the jump from the Imagio to the Incredible. Should be a night and day difference. I'm so tired of the slow running Windows Mobile I can't see straight. I should be in heaven.

    If the slide out keyboard isn't important there should be no debate

    I think I need a 12-step program too. Only got my Droid in Feb (1st smart phone) and have seriously been thinking I might shell out the big bucks for the Incredible, even though I'm just at the start of my 2 year contract. Practically thinking, this makes no sense. I know!! I just want it. Love the sense UI and hardly ever use my keyboard now on the heavier/thicker Droid (which I love). Someone, talk me down!

    I was the same. Had the Droid only for couple of months. But luckily I had an upgrade available in my other line and having played and used the Incredible couple of days.....I know I made the right choice. I can't say enough about this phone. Hands down the best I've ever owned. I didn't like the bulkiness, didn't mind the weight but now having the Incredible in my hands and the Droid in the other? Well I like the slim, light and feel of Incredible way more.

    Uh, oh, you're an enabler!! :icon_ banana:
    So you'd say that the weight difference is significant? How about tethering, have you played with that "mobile broadband" option yet under the "wireless and network" menu? Does it actually work and work easily?

    I answered your question at another post....there is an option to tether via USB. However you have download vzw access mngr and currently there is no Incredible drive that I saw unless you could download another driver that is similar and work. But I read on one of the little brochures in the package when I received the phone that there is a fee.

    I had a feeling the Verizon Wireless Access Manager would be involved to get that $30 fee in addition to data.

    Got one word. PDANet. :D

    Yes...And I just saw that it's on a promotional price. I rarely tether and I'm still debating. Now if it did wifi without rooting..I would be all over it. The thing is for quick Internet checking and stuff the incredible is more than enough.

    If my contract was over, I'd probably get the Incredible. But I'm content with my Droid and am willing to wait until my contract ends and see what's the new phone then.
