    Upgrading from my circa-90's tech flip-phone to Android on
    Verizon. I think I'd be happy with HTC Incredible but
    it's already a year old and I'd hate to have to live with
    it for 20months if a new one came out soon. Is the
    HTC Thunderbolt effectively the Incredible 2?

    I'd like to lock in before V ditches the unlimited data
    plans. Will that coincide with iPhone 5 release this
    summer? I will not pay more than $30 for data.

    If I'd be happy with HTC Incredible, and the 4g data
    doesn't cost me anymore, I might just go for the
    HTC Thunderbolt. Can't imagine it being a lesser phone.

    Down side is the bigger screens (Droid X/Thunderbolt) are
    a little bigger than what I wanted. Incredible is just the
    right size.

    Wish they would release that HTC Android slider, that looks
    just right but I don't want to wait another 6 months for a
    new phone. I get that confusion is good for V as it makes
    for uninformed consumer decisions.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    welcome to the forum! in all honesty, any phone is great to have. I truly believe its the owner that has to make it fit to their needs. its what u wanna do with a phone versus how it looks. its how u wanna customize it after u root. but its IMO of course lol. but either phone u get, I just say try it all out before buying it and def read up on the pros and cons
    good luck!

    there is actually an Inc 2 coming out in the next few months (rumored to be Q2, i believe). personally, i would not buy the Inc now, since it is largely (or very soon to be) outdated.
