    Garment you should wait...don't jump right in so fast.

    HTC is notorious for having issues with their hardware.

    I would wait a bit for it to hit the end users hands and those reviews before making that decision.

    Heard the exact same thing about the Motorola Droid. Turned out to be wrong. But I'll differ to Cereal Killer's knowledge on the subject. Probably better to wait.

    Cereal, of course that is excellent advice. And of course I will not be following it. :)

    30 day return policy baby!!!

    I had to wait a week for my Droid and I'm glad I did, I got those initial reviews and they just made my decision solid.

    I had lived w/o the Droid for 28 years, 7 days didn't kill me. lol

    I paid retail for the moto droid. I feel it was well worth it still. But like hook says, cereal is a rather reputable poster, and his word should not be taken lightly.

    I paid full retail for the Droid, Droid Eris and today the Droid Incredible. I'm a phone/gadget junkie so I obviously have issues. :(

    Yep. full retail for me. But I am thinking of putting my droid on ebay to defer some of the cost. I can't believe they are going for 250-300 used.

    don't think i would pay full retail for any phone, much less a cdma phone that could only be used on one carrier.

    nothing wrong with trying out the 30 return policy though.

    I recently bought my wife a Droid Eris. A few days later the announcement drops that the Droid Incredible was releasing on the April 29th. DOH! Anywho, I purchased the Eris on Amazon Wireless. Her phone has been activated for about 2 weeks. Funny thing is, Verizon Wireless is still showing her line as eligible for an upgrade. Not sure if the system just hasn't updated yet or what. I'm thinking about returning her Eris to Amazon and preordering the Incredible.
