    My Incredible arrives tomorrow. I'm coming from a Blackberry and, needless to say, I'm gunna have questions. Lots of them.

    I spent a good part of the weekend reading up on Incredible/Android. I'll probably put swype on the phone early on. I'll also read the other threads about which-apps-to-install-first.

    Anyhow, just writing because I'm excited about the Incredible and joining the AndroidForums.com community officially.

    Make sure you properly cycle your battery a couple times when you first get it ( About 5 cycles, from full charge to turns itself off. ), and completely ignore the battery indicator for the first week or 2. Also, I recommend turning off the enable always-on mobile data. ( Everything should still update with that off. )

    If you get 6 hours or less of usage, even at very heavy use, something is wrong.

    Other than that...enjoy! It's a great phone!:)

    So cycling means to charge it fully then drain it until its dead?

    Bingo. This is done to calibrate the battery indicator. It's also helps once every couple months to do this to re-calibrate. ( Though you only need to cycle probably 1 time then. )

    I dont know how I ever survived without swype. The learning curve was 30 minutes and its amazingly accurate. Install it first thing! Have fun.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll go up the thread and click thanks a few times. Swype rocks. AndroidForums.com rocks too.
