Hi, I hope this thread is in the right forum...
I am replacing my HTC Incredible 2 and am looking to spend less than $100. I'm interested in the Motorola A855, but I'm not sure if the two are compatible. I understand the A855 doesn't have a SIM card slot, so what would be the process for transferring all my contacts, activating the new phone, etc? Backup Assistant? Or is it not possible. Sorry if these questions are silly, but I'm pretty lost with the whole GSM vs. CDMA thing.
Also, if I can't use the A855, what phones in my price range would you all suggest?
The Incredible 4G is your next logical step up from the Incredible 2, but I don't know if it falls in your pricing target. If you're moving to ANY new phone, your best bet for the transfer of data is either through Backup Assistant or through Google (the better option IMHO). Activation of the new phone would happen automatically when the MEID is updated on your phone number. A 4G phone would activate immediately upon getting a network signal; a 3G phone may require you to place the *228 phone call for activation.
My experience with the SIM cards used in Verizon phones is that they are only there to precipitate the use of the 4G network. I don't see where any actual data is stored on them; if I'm wrong, someone will correct me.
The A855 is a step down not up from a Dinc2.
My guess is the OP is not eligible for an upgrade so he is looking at paying full retail, thus that is why he is considering a Moto A855 for $100.
I admit to not knowing much about this particular Moto phone, but I don't think I've ever seen a phone retail for $100...
