FYI, I could have ordered one at Best Buy and had it today or tomorrow. They were all sold out yesterday afternoon, but the associate said they had more coming.

I read up on Rooting our phones Bryant, but it seemed like a lot of work and not something i feel like doing.

at my store i got like 15 coming in tomorrow (which are pretty much all pre-sold) then another 7 or so coming in friday..

the EVO is definitely the phone to get..

sprint sucks- but for the price and what you get (plan and phone wise) - its well worth putting up with a few dropped calls here and there..

price or not, i cant have a service that gives me nothing at home, i mean a completely dead phone more or less. id have to drive my car about a mile or so down the road to make a call or get a text etc...

i like my incredible and verizon a whole lot more than dealing with no service to save a few bucks

tmbutitta 06-08-2010 05:37 PM

I have sprint verizon and att..

in my apartment- ONLY verizon worked.. actually in the last 3 years i have never dropped a call on my verizon phone.

my ATT is what i use daily, and there are 3 spots that drop calls every day as i drive to and from work..

my sprint has one dead zone that i drive through, but that is pretty much it.

I would never get a carrier that didnt work in my house- but if it worked everywhere that i needed it to, and only dropped calls on the road here and there- i would deal with it to save 30-40 bucks a month.

no service at home is a complete deal breaker, if it was bad service, id deal with it, but with absolutely no service at all times at my house, no way. i could not make a call, it would drop instantly on sprint. that said, im on verizon and i pay about 70-80 a month realistically. i have zero complaints about price

I've been with sprint forever. Since Nextel. I have one or two bad spots but overall have been very lucky with them.

We are getting the Samsung Acclaim first (around July 3rd) and then the HTC Desire(aka incredible with 5mp camera instead of 8)

I have played with them both and they are nice phones. I like the feel and speed of the HTC better but I do like the slide out qwerty of the Samsung.

CamaroSS 06-08-2010 06:17 PM

does the desire have the same processor as the evo/inc? thats the one thing thats missing in all the specs ive seen. regardless, not as sexy as the incredible still :hs:

CamaroSS 06-08-2010 08:32 PM

IDAFC21 06-08-2010 08:33 PM

Incredible will be my next phone

SHOmuff 06-08-2010 09:15 PM

Incredible is win.

bluzohh6 06-08-2010 11:17 PM

My next phone will be the next best thing after the evo

Mook 06-09-2010 02:30 PM

rooted and underclocked/overclocked :bowdown:

EmersonHart13 06-09-2010 02:34 PM

I gotta tell my brother to order the evo, no one seems to have any in stock.

Mook 06-09-2010 02:39 PM

CamaroSS 06-09-2010 11:08 PM

download the scanner radio app. shits awesome :coold: you can listen in on police chatter and a whole bunch of other shit :bowdown:

CamaroSS 06-10-2010 09:17 AM

incredible rooted finally, sounds like a bitch. no instructions yet but it has been done

Mook 06-10-2010 10:29 AM

rooting the evo is as easy as an app right now :rofl:

tho you cant use custom roms yet.

Hubbard 0 06-10-2010 10:41 AM

Definitely going to be getting an android phone as soon as I can. This Blackberry has been a pretty big disappointment.

CamaroSS 06-10-2010 06:06 PM

i doubt ill root mine in the end anyways, i dont see anything being worthwhile doing so still. :dunno:

bikrboy128 06-10-2010 11:49 PM

have the incredible (switched to verizon after sprint contract was up)
I really like the DI. it's a great phone all around, and it looks like it out performs the new iphone. there are a few bugs, but im sure they will be worked out with the new update.
STKorn/SHOmuff, do you have problems with battery life and the signal bars showing up right?

SHOmuff 06-10-2010 11:54 PM

Battery life was short when I first got it. Downloaded an Automatic Task Killer app and that helped. Also, the Eris extended life battery fits in the Incredible if you need more juice.
