    I was told when I purchased the phone that I would need a new belt holster because mine has a magnet closure. Something about the magnets not being good for the android phones...is this true? Never was an issue before.

    Not an issue with the Incredible, only an issue with Motorola droids. I have a magnet closure holster and it works fine with no adverse effects.

    Motorola has a patent on using magnets to change settings, on droids is activates the dock modes.

    Agreed. It is a problem with the Motorola Droid line because they use magnets to trigger the dock modes. Not a problem with the Incredible.

    I've heard that it may put your compass out of calibration. Probably not a big deal for most people, but you never know. And re-calibrating isn't too hard anyway.
