You'll still eventually hit it.

From what I understand, some of the worst offenders that cause this issue are:
-HTC Sense FB contact sync
-HTC Mail
-Netflix

If you used all three of those extensively, you probably ran into this issue at some point.
Thanks for the clear explication! To the point and with all the needed detail

I finally found it, it's on the same page as Verizon's fix to the random reboot, and out of memory problems.

Thank you for the highly amusing interlude of September 32nd. My first quick glance I went 'huh', then went back and read it - along with the confusion that ensued. Great!

Off topic but I got rid of Netflix app, stopped using HTC mail, and started using Friendster and have been low memory problem free for weeks. It had been a very persistent problem for me.

According to AndroidCentral they are pushing out the Droid 2 update today. So, it is possible to see an update mid-week. I don't see them pushing the Droid 2 and Incredible updates at the same time though.

I'm scared - that means my mother will be getting this soon. I haven't checked to make sure all her stuff if backed up. Hopefully when she gets it she will wait.

I would just like to say that this whole 'update' ordeal has really been an emotional roller coaster for me, and it has left me vulnerable and fragile. I don't think I can take another disappointment, HTC! I just want you to know that what happens to me next, either way, is on your hands.

I think I speak for many of us...

Don't forget Verizon is to blame just as much as HTC...LOL.

I think we need to start a support group....kinda like AA. We can call it UA (Updates Anonymous). I'll go first.....Hi, My name is Jim, I have an Incredible and I have been let down by this update process. I used to be in denial untill I realized I check this post numerous times a day to see if it started rolling out yet.

Hi, my name is Mark, and I bruised my thumb from hitting 'check for updates' too many times a day. It's been 2 Days, 6 hrs and 11 minutes since the last time I clicked... It's been one minute since the last time I clicked 'Check for updates.'

I do think it is important to remind people that This roller coaster was brought to you by each other and not VZW not HTC.

If the update doesn't come this month, you can start blaming HTC who tweeted it was coming in September

It looks like Verizon changed the PDF yet again. It is back to the older version which talks about Gingerbread, but has the newer build number (4.06.605.3). Still says "Coming Soon" though, so who knows when it will actually be released.

True dat!!
Is very important IMO that everyone remembers that. Was just reading the comments in phandroid article about the announcement of tbolt and inc getting GB and people were just going OFF.

I'm done with htc blah blah blah..... really... our phone hasn't even been available to purchase since what?? march?

geesh...

It looks like Verizon changed the PDF yet again. It is back to the older version which talks about Gingerbread, but has the newer build number (4.06.605.3). Still says "Coming Soon" though, so who knows when it will actually be released.

http://support.vzw.com/pdf/system_update/incredible.pdf
Maybe the "social media manipulation team" has been watching this thread? They must have called the "marketing team".

Imagine that call:
Really, you need to put the OS bit back on the file.
That's what people are waiting for.
No we're not kidding.
Yes, it really is called Gingerbread.
No we're not kidding.
Update the file or we release the dingos.
Nevermind, just do it.

Hello, This is Jim....who is not affiliated with Verizon in any way (I just had to...LOL)...but I do have some good news from Verizon. I called VZW support today to activate a new phone on one of my other lines. I mentioned to the lady I was waiting for my little slice of Gingerbread for my Incredible. She did some checking and then told me the update was just approved yesterday. She didn't know if that meant VZW or HTC approved it...but that it WAS approved. She then checked back when Froyo came out the update was actually pushed within a week of that update being approved. So.......if this update is going the same route hopefully it should start being pushed within the next week.....barring any interference from lobsters, dingos, spidermonkeys or zombies.

Typically, when an update is approved it is pushed that following Monday/Tuesday (likely Tuesday, after Labor Day). However, there have been MANY cases of an update being approved, and then pulled last minute. So, while this is good news, let's not get our hopes up.

Uhh.....I'm still running 2.1 so the upgrade to 2.3 Gingerbread should be a major jump for me, I think!

I wouldn't be surprised if they delayed the update rollout until the week of the 12th because next week they'll have a bunch of workers on vacation.

And I just realized it has been more than a year now since I got the Froyo update.

HTC got the approval on TB and INC. I'd bet TB goes first next week then incredible the week after maybe 2.

The pdf for the TB looks like a maintenance and bug fix update.

I got my phone last August and the update wasn't for a few months after. I believe Froyo came in November...I could be wrong.

I had a dream last night that it got delayed until Sep, 2012. May it be known that the 17 people who were still running the Inc were frickin ecstatic.
