    If you are rooted, you can fix the problem. There is a thread stickied in the All Things Root subsection with the fix.

    My incredible is just that. Incredible. Runs wonderfully. Only issue is I can never get it to update to gingerbread when it says I have an update. Just counts down and then does nothing at 0.

    Why don't you take it into Verizon?

    They can do something?

    If your phone is NOT rooted, I wouldn't know why they couldn't do something for you. Get it to upgrade, replace it..etc.. It is "their" update they are tryinng to push to your phone.

    My Incredible is still hanging in there. Running better than ever. I'm still running the official Gingerbread from Verizon, without the update patch, but I am rooted. I got rid of all the bloat junk and started using ADW Ex and WidgetLocker. Making all those changes made it feel like a new phone. It feels snappier and is actually a lot more stable.

    My contract is up in July and I think my Inc is going to go into semi-retirement, I guess you could say. I am going to fully retire my iPod and re-purpose my Incredible to fill that void. At the moment I am thinking of running CM9 and just using my phone for games, music, stuff like that. As for what will replace my Inc, i have no idea. At the moment its probably a tie between the GNex and the Droid 4 (that keyboard is darn tempting). But I still have 6 months so who knows what will change.

    I still have mine and am very happy with it. Waiting for a high end 4" phone. The current high end phones are just too big.

    While I did upgrade to the Galaxy Nexus, I can't seem to let go of my Inc. It is still at home, on the charger. I just loved it so much. I still have my non main email going to it, connected via WiFi. LOL I'm weird.

    The Inc is a GREAT phone.

    I haven't had my Inc long (roughly 6 months) but I plan to have it til it dies, or something jus completely amazes me. The RAZR is very appealing with the way it looks, but I think I'll pass. I can switch ROMs every so often to keep things fresh. But I do hope HTC comes out with something just as sleek.

    I've been very happy with the Incredible. The only problem that I ever had with it was the memory issue but after I rooted it I have not had that problem.

    search for 4.08.605.2 in google and there should be a link to a VZW forum that tells you how to clear the cache partition. i did that on my wife's INC and it fixed that problem.

    I still have my INC. love it. its the perfect size. however the razr maxx has caught my eye. now that its a little bit thicker, it might be what i'm looking for. the regular razr was awkward to hold due to its thin-ness, so the bigger battery might solve that.

    otherwise, there isn't anything from vzw that is of interest.

    Mine works great except for the low space notification. A front camera would be nice but I haven't seen a new phone that gives me that many more capabilities. I will hang on to my Incredible until the next big jump in technology occurs. Maybe I'll buy a quadcore in a few months.

    i accidently factory reset my phone a month or two ago, had to reinstall the updates, and now, no low space warnings.

    What are you doing with your phone that quad core would actually benefit?
    Almost no mobile apps are that processor intensive, and even the ones that are usually bottleneck on network resources or Graphics hardware anyways.

    Basically any improvement in hardware capabilities is being lost by crapily written, inefficient software. I think it's pretty telling that the actual use experience between our phones and the current generation really isn't that different. I was looking at phones at Verizon yesterday, and honestly there was more lag on them then my Incredible. I'm sure that will be improved significantly once you get rid of some of the junk, but it's still incredibly annoying.

    Agreed.... the incredible was and still is an awesome phone.

    I'm still sticking with my Inc. I pre-ordered it and waited an absurd amount of time for it due to the AMOLED shortage in 2010. Ended up with an AMOLED version, rooted it and I've ran lots of ROMs over the almost 2 years.

    After settling on CM7 as my daily ROM, I can say that I'm sticking with this phone until it dies. It does everything I want, I'm grandfathered into Verizon's unlimited data, and I personally hate the new trend of 4+" screens. They all just look so massive to me. I love the Inc's iPhone-like size and everything just works for me. Battery life has been great since I've been flashing ROMs/kernels.

    FYI you keep the unlimited data if you change phones/plans.

    Awesome, I hope so when I finally jump ship.

    I thought about that option but don't want to spend hours entering information. Thanks for the suggestion. Verizon employees told me the same thing.

    If you root you're phone there is a fix for the low on space issue.

    You need to do a factory reset for the update to install correctly.

    Hard Reset - DROID INCREDIBLE by HTC

    Backup all your data first, because you will need to reinstall all your apps afterwards. It was worth it to me because I didn't reinstall a whole bunch of apps I never used.

    My Incredible has been, well, Incredible. No issues whatsoever. Great size, updates are current, NOT rooted at all, and I've been very happy with it. My contract is up in a few months but not sure if the original Dinc will be getting Ice Cream Sandwich??? Otherwise, I'm not really looking around at other phones, but am curious about upgrading. I'm just in no rush...

    I think that hand full of us that still have our Inc do not visit the forums all to often anymore. I check here and XDA every once and a while now and it seems like most of the Inc Forums have died off. Everybody else must of moved on, but now there isn't these fun forums to read on the device I still own... :-( O-well....
