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 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

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

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...

Add Notification Sounds

So i got my own ringtones to the phone, but how do I save my custom notification tones? The ones I send to the phone only show up in the "ringtone" section. Since the "notification tone" section is different, I can't seem to add anything there.

Is this not possible?

Ringtone Volume

Is there anyway to increase the volume on the ringer or increase the intensity of the vibe mode? I have a hard time hearing the phone ring in the car or if I put the phone in a pants pocket. Thanks in advance.

Google Voice Commands???

Hello Everyone,

Does anyone else have a problem using the Google Voice commands to send text Messages? I updated the Google voice through the Market, but when I say as an example:

"Send Text to Mom, Meet me at the store"

It leaves the "To:" field blank, and it does this for other people in my contact list as well, its kind of pot luck as to which ones it will fill in and which ones it won't. Anyone else having this problem? andyone know how to fix it?
