TP2 to INC...

So I dropped my TP2 the other day, cracking the screen. Called insurance to get it replaced only to find out that they no longer make the TP2 and can't supply me with a replacement.

I was offered what they called, a comparable alternative, the HTC Incredible. I sell phones for Verizon, so I know all about it already. I've just been with WiMo for so long, I feel like I'm making a major adjustment!

My phone is supposed to be delivered on Wednesday the 8th, so I've already been reading as much as I can about the INC and Android in general. One thing I haven't found is the option to play system sounds through non-stereo bluetooth headsets.

On my WiMo devices, I never needed a stereo bluetooth headset to listen to music, either through Slacker or any kind of media player on my phone. WiMo has an option in the Bluetooth settings menu/Advanced options/Audio Hands-free related settings, that lets you turn on system sounds, allowing you to listen to music/media through any bluetooth headset.

Does Android give you this option? This and losing my freaking keyboard with tilt screen is pretty much the main thing giving me grief about switching to the INC.

Re: TP2 to INC...

I literally just switched though temporarily since a friend is letting me borrow his Inc to see how I like it. The voice activation/music over bluetooth is fixed in 2.2 so you'll want that update as soon as you can, it was a dealbreaker for me till I found that out. As for the rest, it's too early for me to tell. But I can say that I WANT to be happy about it, the Inc is a pretty sweet phone. I'd still prefer a hardware keyboard, but it's probably time I learn to adapt. That's interesting that it's considered the like device, how they put little importance on hardware keyboards I'll never know. A like device to me is the same KIND of device. Same OS and structure, such as a slideout keyboard.

There isn't a like device , they all have reached EOL (end of life). If you want a keyboard get the Droid X.

Re: TP2 to INC...

Been a TP windows user for many years....since the iPaq and I still have several of those... I am very disappointed in MS. Apple and Google have shot off and Google is biting the heals out of Apple even though they had a head start. I really like my DINC. Yes there was a HUGE learning curve for me coming from Windows...i am a business man so the keyboard was an adjustment and Mighty ROM with all the hacks was nice...

It has taken me weeks to learn how to root and hack the DINC not that it is bad from stock but when you have been with Mighty you want more. Soon it will be hard to find a hardware keyboard soon I took the leap...bottom-line look at the future it a social world (unfortunately) it is Google & Apple front stage... Will the new Windows 7 phone really be able to compete and create apps in that trashy Zune market...good luck.. The Driod Inc is mega powerful and then there is a whole other world after rooting it...

Thanks for the input. As far as the like replacement device, they did offer me an LG Fathom, which is the last windows phone with 6.5.X to be released until WP7 comes out. It has the Snapdragon, but I told them that an LG wouldn't be considered a premium device like my TP2 was. After that they said that they were willing to offer me any phone besides the Droid X. I didn't want the Droid 2 so my only other option was the Incredible, mainly because I knew there were already hacks and custom ROMs readily available for it. I'm looking forward to it, but I'm going to miss my TP2 with Energy Sense 2.1.

Yeah, I've been reading since the 7th when I found out I was getting the INC. I believe as soon as I get it tomorrow, it'll be immediately rooted, NAND unlocked, and flashed to the Virtuous ROM over on XDA. I might play around stock for about an hour just to get a feel of the phone and to see how limited the stock VZW ROM is compared to the custom.

Thanks for the replies and clearing up my bluetooth worries guys.

Thumbs up Re: TP2 to INC...

I just made the switch! Been an HTC loyal since the Vogue. After months of tinkering and hours/months spent flashing Nrg roms, I finally gave in and got the Incredible! I will spend the next several hours playing and figuring out how to restore my contacts from xml. Hint hint anyone? I will be looking for an S2P like player, and a TCPMP version for Droid.
I will always love my tp2! Maybe I can use it for WiFi only. Off I go.

P.s. I wrote this from my D Inc.

Re: TP2 to INC...

Yeah I really need a TCPMP type of media player. I listen to audiobooks and I need one that will resume where I left off when I open the app again or reset the phone.

Get RockPlayer off the Android market. I needed a player that played .flv files since I download lots of youtube stuff but this thing plays it all. This is what you need...the developer has a link here...

Beat them all since it plays sooo many formats..

Re: TP2 to INC...

My TP2 kept having issues. Verizon sent me a pre-owned TP2 the other week. The drop down arrow on the top right corner is missing, and even Verizon has no idea how that can be. They offered me the Ally and 1 other phone I can't think of, but refused to send me an Incredible. After calling the Executive Office and speaking to the VP of customer relations, they offered to let me purchase the INC & then issue a full refund AND allow me to upgrade again whenever I want by changing my upgrade date whenever I wish. My INC should be here Tuesday. I hope to have time to figure out this rooting stuff and just knock it out the second it arrives. This may not be the perfect place to ask, but I have one question regarding rooting- does it loose VVM or VZNavigator like putting MightyRom did on my TP2?
