I pulled the battery a couple of times and waited before putting it back in and the phone would still stall on the white screen.
I then held down the Volume Down and Power Button and selected Reboot. That hasn't helped.
I'm not familiar with programming and I didn't have any problems like this with my iPhone and I have no idea how to repair smartphones, but I'm willing to learn how to fix mine.
I appreciate any help or advice!
Welcome to the forums
First try booting into safe mode:
Safe Mode - DROID INCREDIBLE by HTC
If that doesn't help, you may have to do a factory reset. Hold power and volume down when turning the phone on(like you did before). And choose the recovery option... This will take you to a screen with a red triangle and exclamation point, then press volume UP and power, which will give you more options. From that point you can try wiping just the cache (but probably won't help) and rebooting, or use the factory reset and then reboot.
