    Just wanted to talk about what my Incredible did for me this weekend.

    It was my sisters birthday this weekend in Boston (im originally from here). I haven't made the drive in awhile and needed to keep checking in with my brother in order to get up there quickly, its a good 6 hour drive. I turned on the Wifi hotspot and started a video chat with my brother (my girlfriend did actually, i obviously wasn't video chatting on a laptop while driving) for the first leg of the journey. Afterwards my brother used Google Latitude to check up on me to make sure I was taking the right highways.

    At this point music is running low and I texted my buddy to throw some stuff in a dropbox and a few minutes later we had my latop plugged in playing the downloaded music through the car stereo.

    Once in Boston used the GPS, still with the hotspot going to get to the bar where my sister was having her party. Took some awesome pictures and videos, the funny ones were immediately uploaded to facebook and youtube while some others were emailed to friends of hers that i didnt know.

    At the end of the night I had lost my jacket with my phone in it (yeah I was freaking out). Grabbed my brothers iPhone and went to HTCSense.com (I'm running IncDoes Sense) to lock my phone and display my brothers number with a message saying if found, please call. If stolen, I'm coming to find you. Decided that since I had LookOut installed too I would give that a shot once the bar cleared out. Suddenly from the back of the bar the LookOut Siren kicked in and I found my jacked, with phone in pocket, stuffed behind the table.

    The way home was no different, GPS + GLatitude + Wifi hotspot & youtube.

    My girlfriend is jealous of the time I devote to my phone always throwing around the "its a phone, how good could it possibly be??". Anyways, I think shes getting the Droid2 in a few weeks :D


    Regardless of the impending "cool story bro" comments, I want to thank the phone, and this forum, for truly being Incredible.

    Shouldve put this in, flashed a backup of MIUI right when I got there since IncDoes doesnt have a camera.

    ID is SO close to having a camera, he has a pic on his twitpic account of it working but very very choppy.

    EDIT: sorry to get your hopes up

    I've done this before on trips - I have a spot on the center console where I can attach the car mount and aim an air vent right at the phone. Never heats up.

    How is that possible? HTCSense.com doesn't even support the DINC from what I've looked at on the site.:rolleyes:
