Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

Due to the pervasiveness of the software phone button, getting to your phone calls is pretty easy. By default, it opens with the dial pad on the bottom half of the screen and your top favorites above it. You can choose to minimize the dialpad. If you do that, you'll see your full list of contacts, with your favorites pulled out at the top, then followed by the rest in alphabetical order.

The phone app automatically sorts through your contacts as you dial a number, so you can easily jump though a large contact database quickly. There is also a teensy button in the bottom right corner of the phone app that takes you to your most recent calls and groups. You can also get that info by pressing the menu button.

If you've synced the Incredible with a Facebook account, the device automatically adds not only your friends' Facebook profile pictures to their contact info, it also ports over any phone numbers stored in their Facebook profile. Very useful, especially for quick access to those old high school flames.

Each contact can hold what appears to be an unlimited amount of data. Have more than 10 phone numbers? No problem! Have 50 email addresses? No problem (though you probably have issues)! Contacts can also include notes, web sites, addresses and on and on and on. I like that Android adds your friends' Facebook status updates to their contact profile. This lets you see what your friends have been up to recently when they call or message you.

The synergy between the calling and contacts apps are very well done with Sense. I like what HTC has done to make them one tool, rather than separate functions.
