oh wow, this is such a late reply response....and technology is such velocity rapid fast! And i new to this Adroid forum site hahaa.. Incredible was released 2010 and it now 2012. well to only answer your question....
October 2011 I took a Android Incredible phone flash over to MetroPCS through a private guy found on Craigslist Sacramento, ca. I was charge $70 to flash and unlocked the phone to 3G and that was about it and have no effect on my family plan $30 i pay a month. (As you know when you flash a unMetroPCS phone, internet don't work.) He claim that Verizon have a security protective code unable him to rooted the incredible phone plus no one haven't hack into it yet, so my phone is unrooted S-ON and can't send picture text. Which obviously he not good enough to root or his guys not yet to master to do soo on the incredible!
