2.3.4 Warning.

Do not update. This 2.3.4 update and the HTC Droid Incredible has a fatal flaw. HTC said they know about it and are working on a fix. ETA unkmown. The update makes your phone stop syncing , no text messages,unable to update because phone thinks storage is full on both phone memory and SD card.

Verizons solution. upgrade phone.

Droid Incredible - which version of Android and Sense UI?

I'm considering getting this phone and I'd like to know what version of Android and Sense UI it ships with? I read that it was updated to Android 2.2 has been promised 2.3, is that correct? Does it comes with the latest Sense UI and if not will that be offered "over the air" as well? TIA

Incredible overheats and shuts down using GPS.

My phone overheats and gets in a shutdown reboot loop when using GPS. It did this while plugged into car charger. I concluded it was overcharging. Today I tried using GPS without charger. There was direct sun hitting the screen (I'm in Florida). It soon shut down and got in the Terrible Loop. I've read a lot about this online and there are many different experiences and views. The phone does not do this inside the house with a wall charger.
Does anyone know if Verizon has a definitive answer for this. I've read of other customers with this problem getting replacement phones that do the same thing.
I checked on getting a Garvin navigation system and read they also can overheat and shutdown.
Any info and advice are appreciated.

Saving pics to SD Card

Can anyone tell me how to save pictures ive taken to the SD Card. I have taken many pictures and they are in the Gallery. All of them show up under 'All photos' under Albums. There are a few under Phone storage and one under 'SD Card', but how it got there I have no idea. When I try to download them to my computer I only see the 1 under SD Card, but have 133 under All photos. With my old phone, the 'Dare', I just chose menu and it gave an option to 'Move' and I could move them back an forth from the phone storage to the SD card just by selecting them. Please help?

Factory Data Reset

Has anyone had a problem with their Incredible doing a complete factory data reset on its own?

Just had a friend that we sold an Incredible to last month call and say that he powered his phone off last night (as he always does) and when he turned it back on this morning everything had been reset to factory specifications.

He has no idea why this happened and is wondering how to prevent it in the future.

I have an Incredible myself but I haven't had this issue (knock on wood)

Any ideas? Confused

Help with HTC sync

I continue to have issues with Sync. I have uninstalled and re-installed a million times. I get a connection error and won't sync. When it does work it duplicates everything on my computer. Any help, it is getting frustrating.

Just picked up the DINC

The deal at Best Buy was too good to pass-up. Coming from a BBS1 this is different for sure.
Haven't figured out what all the aps and widgest are yet. Moved the power control to a home page but don't know what the Sync All is? Should this be on or off to save battery life?
Thanks in advance.

Got my hands on a AMOLED version of the Dinc

Tempted to write a full review once I have it active for a few days, but just messing with it over wifi, here's what I noticed compared to my original droid:

-Colors and video look amazing on it, but web pages look soft.. like they're slightly blurred, but they're not. I'm guessing this is because it's AMOLED. It's not as bad as one the galaxy S phones, but text was sharper on my droid.

-This thing is FAST. Yes, I have my droid clocked at 1.2ghz, but this is still quicker where it counts.

-I really like the polish that Sense brings to the phone. Scenes are a blast. I had originally intended to root this thing on the first day and install CM6.1 on it, but I might hold off for a bit and play with a "stock" phone for awhile

voice quality strange?

Seems like the earpiece sound is sort of flanging or maybe pitch shifting a little. Is this normal? It's worse on the speakerphone?

Battery life real solution

So what is it. I have read all the posts and everyone seems to be having the same problem. My phone won't even last a day now and I do not use it that much. Anyone know what is being done to address the issue?
