Default froyo disappointment on the incredible.

Here are the changes I notice.

a) Voice to text. 10% of the time I would hit the microphone button on the keyboard, speak, and nothing would register. I'd have to start speaking again for it to register sound, and whatever I said while it wasn't registering sound would come out as gibberish.

Now this happens 50% of the time.

b) In the calendar, when I hit menu on an event, I don't see "edit event" as an option anymore. I tried to change the time of an event when someone called me, and could not figure out until after I hung up that I have to hold my finger down on an event for 2 seconds, then hit edit event.

Making the interface less intuitive is lame.

c) HTC mail still can't send mail over wifi. I like how I can select text from within an email the same way I can within the browser, but having to turn wifi on and off everytime I send an email is lame. I expect some bugs when the device comes out, but this was a chance to fix all that.

My personal favorite,

d) The phone was acting weird(think storm 9530 before OS5), so I turned it off, removed the battery, and turned it back on. I turn it back on to find out all the phone contacts are gone, 99% of the 3rd party apps I installed have icons but won't start/have their data cleared.

For all the supposed updates, I was hoping at the very least I'd be able to select text in applications like K-9, maildroid. Or on apps that came as a part of the phone - gtalk. If someone gtalks me a tracking number, I have to retype it then select what I just typed. This is asinine.

The phone seems no faster than before. The speed is the same. I's just buggier and less intuitive.

I use the phone for business, primarily to set appointments, take customer calls, order parts, do banking, check the status of orders. I loved it coming from a storm, I still do, but wish 2.2 were actually an upgrade.

A few questions:

1. Are you rooted? > If so, are you stock? > If not, what ROM are you running?
2. If you are not rooted, your message does not belong in "all-things-root" but I would still ask if you have done a factory reset? If not, it may have something to do with old apps and/or data.

+1 Try the factory reset. Seems to clear up a lot of the buggy-ness with the OTA.

I am terribly sorry & embarrassed to have been an idiot and posted this in the all things root forum, I wasn't paying attention and didn't mean to do so. My apologies!

I will try a factory reset. I am not rooted. If this is what I get half the battery life of every other motorola/samsung android phone for, I'm not impressed

IMHO OTA is NOT the way to go. Just like upgrading Winbows, it's better if you do a clean install. I did a Titanium backup of my apps and then used the RUU to upgrade to 2.2. I then reinstalled all my apps. A bit of a pain I know but well worth it in OS stability.

Sending, receiving, or both?

The same crap happened with the Eris with 1.5 to 2.1...

it's a software update. it isn't giving you a new phone. Something will improve others will crap out. it's the name of the game and why they give a one year manufacturer warranty. I suggest using that to the fullest. I went through 3 Eris refurbs and got the Incredible for free due to problems, and now I just got my first Inc refurb today and its great!!
