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?

Okay. Please join me in boycotting the Incredible so that Verizon will release a CDMA variant of the Desire HD.

Family Locator

If you subscribed for the Family Locator service try my Family Locator application for Androids. It emulates web browser to send location request and get result from https://fl.vzw.com but displays it on Google Maps view instead of web page. Also you can pass coordinates to Google Maps/Navigation app.
Search market for Family Locator (V). Try free Demo version first. Before this make sure that location service works for you on official Verizon site https://fl.vzw.com

Can't send mms/always receives as a slideshow...

So my wife just got the incredible and is having the same issue she was having with her droid eris. Anytime she tries to send an mms, it automatically converts the picture to a slideshow. when the msg finally gets to my phone, it asks me to reject or download the msg.

The download ALWAYS fails for me. Others can usually get the pic no problem, even though it's still a slide show.

Also, she receives all mms as a slide show as well. Anyone else experience this? Any help?

Thanks a lot

ATT needs this phone.

I have waited Embarassed way to long on AT&T to release a product like this. I may need to look at other carriers.

Up Time vs. Awake Time

I've read through many threads, tried a bunch of batter saving tips, disabled "Always on data", bump charging and some other stuff.

Last night I unplugged my phone around 8 pm. Minimal use until this morning. The battery actually lasted over night. I'm amazed

I look at the battery stats and it reads like this:

Up Time: 13:33
Awake Time: 11:36

These stats I don't really understand. Up time if the time left off the charger right? And awake time is the phone actually using process and being active?

How can this be if most the time I was sleeping? I looked at the Display listing and it said 2h 26m. This would be the time that I was actually using the phone correct?

Could there be some app that is keeping the phone busy while I...
