    I bought an Eris which I love, but will probably take it back within the 30 days to get an Incredible. Just wondering what's the best way to clear all my info & downloaded apps off the phone so it's back to the way it came in the box?

    Do a hard reset. Go to your Setting Menu, and then Privacy, I believe. Do that and it should be good.

    But yes, VZW will do it for you, but you don't want to take a chance. You may want to change your GMail password afterwards, as well. Just for safety in case some way is found around a hard reset to get old info.
