    Maybe we can see if these "pink screens", "blown speakers", "bad call quality", "weak signal" issues came from a certain batch of phones from HTC.

    Please Give Thanks!

    Mine doesnt have activation date either.

    Warranty date I believe is date and time you activated so they know the one year from that date is when your warranty ends..

    Dunno about life counter.

    Warranty date is supposed to be the end date of the warranty, 1 year from activation, but mine says 11/6/2010 which cannot be correct. I activated my Incredible on 5/3/2010

    I wonder if life counter is hours the device is awake? That could be very interesting.....


    MFG Date 4/25/10 Had call quality issues but a hard reset fixed it.

    Problems : Unresponsive Screen when on most soft surfaces and car dock. Verizon and HTC told me was grounding issue and would be fixed via OTA update sometime soon.

    Phone is being replaced anyways, New one be here soon, and will post about that handset...


    P.S:

    If you have call confirm installed, you have to uninstall it to view this menu, then you can re-install it after checking...
