    I just got my Incredible like an hour ago. :)
    Just wondering what everyone did as their first actions with the device, besides charging, contacts, setting up email fb etc..

    Checked out the 8mp camera! Then I surfed the net to see how it compared to the MOTO droid that I had..

    I love when people call it Dinc. Who started that?

    "Hey checkout my dinc."

    I downloaded apps and fiddled with settings and widgets to optimize battery life.

    I spent at least an hour downloading apps. Actually that's almost all I've done for the past three days. I think I've made about four actual phone calls LOL

    I've had my phone for more than a week already and I still haven't setup up my email. I'm too busy playing with all the apps.:D

    Hmm..

    I danced around and held it in my wife's face (she's an iphone owner) and said, "IN YOUR FACE". I exclaimed that I am officially no longer lame (previous phone was a touch pro 2 running.. bleh.. Windows mobile).

    I then decided that I would tell people that I pried the keyboard off of my touch pro 2 and that, "it turned out surprisingly well!" (and then show them my incredible).

    Next, I googled "best android apps" and installed applications at an "incredible" rate.

    As I ran each app, I gave my annoyed wife the blow by blow (with her response always being, "I have that too") and expressed my love for my new phone over and over.

    I broke down and shamelessly begged for a google voice invite in the "Please send me a google voice invite" thread. I never beg, but I begged. I didn't get one yet so I guess this qualifies as thinly veiled re-begging.

    I read about the short battery life (and it does seem short so far) and the poor call quality (and maybe it is, haven't made the final decision).

    I am now trying to figure out what phone will be next. ;) :D

    I had been researching the Incredible and Android for a while and had a number of apps I wanted to download. So the first thing I did was download and play with a number apps while simultaneously trying to figure out how to use Android :)

    Well, got home, immediately bathed it in the microfiber cloth to cleanse it of the evil VZW rep's fingerprints, put on the silicone case and interim screen protector, let it charge to full, then I think I went through all the possible settings on the phone; I usually do that with any new consumer electronic I get.

    That's me too:) Very first thing I look for is "Settings". What can I change, what can't I change. Try this, try that, etc. etc.:)

    The first thing i did was have the sales rep show me how to.. answer a call, make a call, read a text and send a text. everything else came second when i got home and comfortable on the couch.

    Well, after FedEx dropped off my package, I had to finish washing dishes.... then I got to sit there and stare at my Dinc for about 10-15 minutes (an eternity) while my fiancee finished vacuuming because I had to call to get it activated and I didn't wanna take if off the charger to go elsewhere.
