    Canceled my HTC Incredible order; getting the Droid X

    I ordered my Incredible on June 5th and the wait was three weeks. I was optimistic as I had seen others get theirs sooner although I noticed for people ordering after me, the delays had gotten longer.

    Well, my three weeks came and went, so I did some research and apparently the few days around the time of my order were particularly bad for delays. Mine still hasn't shipped and they were estimating another 5-10 day delay. There's a thread on androidforums.com with nearly 6,000 posts of people tracking and venting about Incredible backorders.

    I stopped in the Verizon store last night and the rep confirmed I could cancel my Incredible order then I would be put on a "reserved" list for the Droid X on the 15th. As of now there are no X pre-orders (except in Best Buy stores) but they don't anticipate backorders with the X either. A Verizon phone CSR yesterday also told me if I received the Incredible I could take it unused back to the store and not pay the restocking fee.

    They're essentially equal phones in my opinion. The extra size of the X doesn't bother me plus it has better battery life. The Verizon store rep also suggested that the Incredible had fallen out of favor with Verizon because of this PR nightmare. So given that I was looking at another 7-10 days minimum anyway I can hang on for 16 more days.

    I have thought about doing the exact same thing. Still up in the air.

    I got my Inc. 2 weeks ago. Then the wait was 3 weeks. Good luck in whatever you choose, either phone will be great.

    I've had the incredible for nearly two months and still love it. Feel terrible for those of you that are still waiting due to all the delays. Good luck with your decision.
