HTC hasnt released any highend phone to date on vw...this phone is nothing more than incredible 2/rezound coupled with lte...gonna be hard to sell at only fifty bucks cheaper than gs3 and thats only after waiting for your rebate unless you do the purchase online

the OG Incredible was 1 of 2 high-end phones at the time in the US for HTC and the Rezound was HTC's Flagship device when it launched so you were saying? ;)

What he is saying is if Htc considers this phone or any of the ones you mentioned to be considered high end phones of there time then Htc might as well leave the game

Jesus, more GSIII cheerleaders. Just as annoying as the fanatical iPhone fanboys. And soon to be joined by Droid Razr HD nuts.

Did it ever occur to anyone that the Incredible was never meant to be flagship but sometihng high end enough for those wanting a more compact phone? 4.8" is quite a bit of kit to carry and hold and the thinness kinda borders on Droid Razr (un) comfort.

Anyhow, I'm sure the new iPhone and GS III and Droid Razr HD will be good phones but unfortunately Verizon wants everyone off Unlimited data ASAP.

I could live with 4GB monthly data but 2GB is kinda cutting it close as I already used up 2.2GB and I have 8 days left of the billing period.

Hey...I may be a soon to be GS3 and RAZR HD nut...lol. I agree with ya tho. :-)

Ppl are looking at the screen res and ram and thinking its nothing special.I think its a decent phone. I just prefer Amoled screen alot now. But...I might still get it. I want my family plan to be diverse, dont want all Moto phones on it.

You dont consider the Rezound high end? The Incredible was too when it launched.

Dont know about the T Bolt...and too tired to check n see...lol.

I checked out the phone today and some of the cons were unfounded. The display was bright and the viewing angles were great. It did wash out a bit in sunlight but turning up the brightness brought it back, mostly. The body is lighter and slimmer than my Rezound but still retained the solid build and comfort. The camera was the same as the Rezound but the front camera was lacking due to it being smaller and VGA quality.

Unfortunately, the Worry Free Garantee is major BS. Prior to doing the transaction I was told repeatedly that my Unlimited Data would stay in place seeing as how it should be just an exchange. Well the reps at the data center said nope and then me and the customer service rep at the counter were given such a headache and run around when trying to revert my service back to my old phone. It took 2 hours to make things right.

It turns out Verizon will give you a lot of bulls**t and wil make an effort in getting you onto their new data plans. Just for that I will start "abusing" my Unlimited Data and download/ stream as much as I can. The bastards that they are....

For what it's worth, the store manager was really annoyed with Verizon Corporate and the taking away of my Unlimited made no sense to him, despite it being a different device the transaction was supposed to be part of the Worry Free.

Now we know why Verizon pushed back the release dates of many phones.

that's an interesting story because now that's something i may try to do with my sister's SIII. i saw both the SIII and the Incredible today with her and she didn't like how big the SIII was and frankly i thought it felt unacceptably cheap. i think the incredible would be better for her though being that she primarly uses her phone to listen to music and has her Transformer Prime for the heavy duty stuff. thanks for sharing!

If she's no longer Unlimited Data then sure, go ahead. Unfortunately the Worry Free Garantee won't uphold the previous data plan.

The Incredible is a nice phone and the extended battery I was shown didn't make the phone too bad. Sense 4 and ICS are both really good once you get used to where everything is, the interface was smooth and I liked the Sense ICS keyboard. The new clock weather widget they have can be slimmer and looks great and I'd hope it would find its way to the Rezound.

I agree about the GS3 plus I dislike Touchwiz...

oh no, she's unlimited. i misread and thought you got em to do it. i guess i'll just have to do a trade on the forums. i'm sure there's someone who would jump for that with the SIII's popularity.

I was typing on my phone and was still very annoyed so maybe some things didn't come through clearly.

Anyhow, the GS III is still a great device, though not as solid feeling and has some GPS issues (friend of mine has his), would you really be willing to do such a trade?

I wrote a complaint to Verizon since there were several cases of people managing to do the Worry Free exchange without affecting their Unlimited Data plans.

yeah, probably. the Incredible is more ideal for my sister than the SIII.

i'd definitely give it a try. o:

I'm not an HTC fan.....and I dont consider the Inc 4G a so-so phone. I think ppl are hung up on screen res and 1GB ram. Still has newer cpu/gpu and newer lte hardware. All that could mean bettery battery life than the Rezound without sacrificing performance.
