    I'm considering exchanging my Incredible for a new one. The screen is really pink, I thought I could handle it, but it's really bothering me - especially since I use the auto backlight, so it's sometimes dim enough that the pink is very pronounced.

    NOTE: The pink screen issue is NOT the point of this thread. I've read the other threads. I've read the other sources cited in those threads, the ones citing particular types of AMOLED displays using a particular layout of subpixels causing more pronounced reds. I understand it all, but I've also seen pictures of side by side Incredibles - one very pink, one very white. Pictures don't lie. I don't know what to believe, but if I go test an Incredible, and it's whiter, I want it. Sorry to waste so much space on this post with this, I just know how it goes on forums, and don't want to get into an argument over the pink screen issue.

    That said - Here's my question: What's the best way to move everything over to my new incredible? I doubt I'll have the opportunity to have both in hand at home, meaning I'll need to copy whatever I'm going to copy before bringing it back. I primarily run Linux, but have access to a Windows machine as well. Contacts and e-mail come from Google, so I'm not worried about those. I'm primarily concerned with my Sense layout and installed apps. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,

    Google sync for email and contacts, astro file manager for app backup/restore and i HTC sync for sense layout.

    It should be on your SD card.

    Its actually on your phone's internal memory. Mount the phone via USB cable to your PC and open the phone and you'll see it. Double click to launch setup.

    Did you go to Verizon and exchange your phone yet? I have the exact same issue with a pink screen ..... even at 100 percent brightness when compared side by side with another phone, mine still has a pink hue. Definitely annoying. Just wondering if Verizon acknowledged this as a problem yet?

    Sounds like I'll need Windows for this. Trying in a VM now. Thanks for the info.

    I haven't gotten around to it yet. I keep telling myself to just deal with it because exchanging the phone sounds like such a hassle (even though it really isn't). I actually bought my phone at BestBuy, but they have a 30 day exchange window (I think). I doubt Verizon has acknowledged this yet, and considering my history with them and my Blackberry Tour, which was riddled with manufacturer defects, they'll likely never acknowledge it.

    There's a lot of proof out there suggesting this is an issue with this particular type of screen, and isn't a defect per se. However, I'd like to compare my Incredible side by side to another one and see for myself.

    I don't think mine has a hue at 100% as yours does, although I could be missing it because I haven't compared it to another.
