    When I go to the storage settings, it says that I have a 1.86gb (2gb) sd card, and only 649MB available on my internal phone storage. Do I have a different version or something? I was told that the Incredibles have 8gb of internal phone storage.

    Thanks

    Settings>SD card & phone storage>Under Internal phone storage it says Available Space 649MB. This not right?

    Under that same setting it should say
    (SD Card)
    Total space:
    depends on your card
    Available space:
    depends on your card
    (Internal Phone Storage)
    Total space:
    6.60GB
    Available space:
    Whatever you have left
    (Phone Memory)
    Total space:
    748MB
    Available space:
    Whatever you have left

    All incredibles have the internal "8 gb" storage. It's 2 lines above where you are reading. NOT where it says "phone memory". That's for apps. Says "internal phone storage".

    Ps...are you running a custom rom?

    Yes I am, running cyanogen so that might be why I'm seeing differently.

    Here is EXACTLY what I see once again...

    SD Card

    Total Space
    1.86gb
    Available Space
    1.57gb
    Unmount SD Card
    Format SD Card
    Internal phone storage
    Available space
    627MB

    That rom can not really see the internal storage. Same is true for all aosp roms. You can still acces using a file manager but you might have problems writing or copying from it.
    There might be a way to partition the storage or trick the rom and apps to properly use it, but haven't looked into it much.

    Bottom line is, you have the 8 GB, but the rom you are using can not see it. It's a flaw in the rom, the developer is still working on fixing it.

    This is fixed in the nightly builds, so expect it to be fixed in the next release candidate.
