    I can not play any flash content on my Incredible for some reason, it says not supported. I can see that flash is installed, but it is grayed out and I cannot uninstall to reinstall! Any thoughts?

    what sites are you going to? some sites (such as hulu) don't allow use on mobile devices.

    If you have root access you can do this:

    Do this when the phone is NOT in recovery. Then load Flash from the Market.

    Code:
    adb remount
    adb shell
    rm /system/app/install_flash_player.apk
    pm uninstall com.adobe.flashplayer

    If not are you still on 2.1?

    if you are on 2.2 then try to clear the cache for the market app and then try to install the flash player from there.

    Isn't flash now in the market? have you tried to download it from there to see what happens? At the very least it'll update what you have and may just work.

    oh also check in the browser settings if plugins are enabled. just go into the browser click menu button, then settings and you should see it there.
