I also will believe it when I see it. Not even an official announcement will convince me until I have it on my phone. Too many rumor letdowns with the Incredible.

Since it is officially announced, I'm expecting it. It can take 2-3 days before I get it though.

If any of you guys want better call clarity on your VERIZON phones go to the dialer and type ##7764726, It will ask you for your SPC code its usually 6 Zero's ( 000000) go to NAM CDMA settings. scroll down to preferred voice service and click on it change it to EVRC-B. then click your menu button and commit changes. Now after your phone reboots immediately try to make a phone call (*86 for voicemail works well) and make sure the call connects. This modification only works if the tower your pinging off of supports the new codecs

PRL Update Manual

go to dialer type in ##778, edit mode, type in your SPC ( Six zero's) scroll to prl ,click update prl and then load the prl from your SDcard. menu commit modifications.reboot
I have also included the hybrid PRL for those of us that are in the old ALLTEL market and were switched to VZW

I'm waiting for the Samsung Fascinate (LED) for Verizon - rumored for 9/9/10 launch date but I get mixed reports on the front facing camera. Does anyone know if it will have the front camera?

alright!
have fun, and don't pull a 'Moss' and drop it in the toilet from your shirt pocket
:D

I won't, think thing is going to be 'glued' to me. I already annoyed my manager today by 'playing' with it.

I'm going to root it once the official 2.2 ROM is released for it. So far, I'm impressed.

Why wait? Use the one click rooter, no worry about recovery mode or any bullshit like that. when that's done, load up Rom manager to get a backup and then let'r rip.

Hm if this is already discussed I'm sorry for bringing it up:

Why do people still think the iphone 4 is better than the Evo, droid(or X), galaxy? is it because they only know what an iphone is and nothing else? dont get me wrong I think the iphone is great but, lets face it compared to most of these android phones its....nothing special. Any opinions?

I don't know much about the iphone, as I am a technology user. I imagine most people use that phone as a fashion accessory. no one I know owns a functional iphone.
I come to the android market by way of Palm. my trusty 755p was losing its trustworthiness. I tried the palm pre without success. there wasn't a phone that could do half what my old palm could do.
until now.
android is good looking, but needs some functional tweaks. maybe that's where the iPhone had an edge? can't say...
hardware wise, I'm sure the most recent galaxy s' can keep up with (or smoke) anything out there.
software-wise, I say we have the greatest advantage. if only we could get less ads...

I work for VZW now. It will not have a front facing camera.

Just a personal note. I owned an iphone 4. The front facing camera is gimmicky at best. Not really justified as a feature.

software-wise, I say we have the greatest advantage. if only we could get less ads...
Root your phone or buy the programs and the ads will be gone. Rooting to remove ads takes a bit of know-how.

Speaking of, is anyone interested in a short tutorial to help non-root users understand what/how rooting does, and the benefits/disadvantages? I've been doing everything from rooting to playing with my phone in S-OFF recently. It's a lot of fun :)

Hm if this is already discussed I'm sorry for bringing it up:

Why do people still think the iphone 4 is better than the Evo, droid(or X), galaxy? is it because they only know what an iphone is and nothing else? dont get me wrong I think the iphone is great but, lets face it compared to most of these android phones its....nothing special. Any opinions?
iPhone 4 is not as functional as droid phones. I can give you a synopsis of the advantages and disadvantages from an unbiased point of view. I owned both phones and I LOVE smartphones. I don't nearly love VZW as much as I love these phones for making my life easier.

Pros of iPhone 4 that no other phone can match
-1- Out of the box easier to use. Every time I set up a droid phone I spend 20 f***ing minutes setting up their home screen, transferring contacts, and then showing them how to customize their other screens.
-2- Build quality minus antenna issue. Slap a case on it... I've dropped my iphone 4 from 18' (on purpose) and no damage. Airline grade glass kind of does that.
-3- IPS screen with highest pixel density of any smartphone on the market. No visible pixels.
-4- If iOS wasn't such a clusterbunk of programming the iPhone does have the strongest processor out of any smartphone for rendering graphics.

Dunno how to classify
-1- Best touch screen accuracy, but it lacks over-all area... the sides are too far in... sometimes it just doesn't work if you touch near the edge.

Cons of iPhone 4
-1- Nothing is removable, expandable, customizable (battery, memory, user interface)
-2- Apple's plan for the end user is restrictive and invasive. Who needs to monitor use if they can only use their device in a specific way?
-3- iTunes required. Who the hell does Steve J think he is?.. Don't answer... I hate iTunes and I don't want it on my PC.
-4- No power saving options. Ever use the droid power control widget to quick activate and deactivate features on the phone? Easier than the iphone 10x.
-5- ATT exclusivity (soon to be remedied but I still won't buy)
-6- Developer community was squashed by apple's strict bullshit.
-7- Antenna issue... wtf? The phone is beautiful and I have to cover it up??? Invisible shield yeah, but it's still defective if it drops calls out of the box.
-8- Apple's hate for jailbreaking. Destroys a community that is interested in working with apple's restrictive nature, and willingly voiding warranty. You'd think they'd be happy to get people to brick their phones and buy new ones >.>
-9- Facetime is stupid... wifi network only?

Binge, if you had to choose between the Droid 2 and the Fascinate - which would it be and why?

Thanks for your opinion!

I would choose either the Fascinate, X, or the incredible. The Droid 2 is a piece of sh!t. Build quality is lacking in a serious manner. The touch sceen digitizer is re-used from the first droid... no other phone uses that digitizer anymore. It is TERRIBLE. The Fascinate will be a better phone over all than the Droid 2, but ever since the 2.2 update I've been seriously taking my incredible to bed instead of my GF. The phone runs more smooth than the iPhone 4 ever ran for me (that is impressive. It's a smooth phone to navigate... what little there is to do on it), and my emulators run equally smooth. The X is just quality. The whole thing screams it.

Long short... the Droid 2 has 2.2(froyo) out of the box... and it sucks. It REALLY sucks. If that isn't telling I don't know what is. Below is an idea of how well the touch screen on the original Droid did with respect to tracking the finger.

The only reason I said Droid 2 is for slide out keyboard. I tend to like it better than touchscreen. The Fascinate has slide out and LED so 2 +. The Incredible and X do not have the slide out keypad. In you experience which is better - screen keypad or slide out?

Thanks again!

There is no better keyboard than the LG Ally, but that's not really an option at this date. The Ally is just not quick enough.

The fascinate does not have a slide out keyboard. The screen is AMOLED. With a good touch screen the keyboard is easy to use. The incredible or the x both have great digitizers. A lot of the time I just use voice to text if I don't feel like typing.

Got my OTA Incredible 2.2 update today. Awesome stuff! One thing that is very noticable is internet browsing is much faster. The hotspot is nice too. Going to try to take some 720p video later. :)

Isn't it included with v2.2 update on the Nexus One? If you haven't gotten the 2.2 update wait for the OTA.
