    Any of the upgrades in gingerbread do anything to improve the phone features of the Incredible?

    If I'm not mistaken; Verizon does soak testing right before a full on release. Hence the X2 (under that assumption of course) would be next up.

    cleaned a few posts up. since a certain someone is on a time-out i see NO reason to respond to him at all atm. Not too mention we all know we should be debating the issue and not the user:)

    I believe if you ignore certain things they tend to have less impact on you, just my opinion though:)

    NOt to say there isn't a risk, but rooting could not be easier. I've done it twice now, and it is as easy as following like 5 steps and pressing a button. It literally takes like 10 minutes. Go for it...

    I'll be optimistic and assume that some day Gingerbread is made available. Here's my question...I am not a Verizon customer, but Verizon is my carrier through a prepaid vendor. Will an upgrade be pushed to me, or will I have to get it from HTC? Will checking for updates on the phone show when it's available? Thanks.

    Possibly, but if soak testing had been done there would have been news about it.

    I would assume verizon would push teh update to your phone. The check for update function on the phone is pretty useless as it will only give you an update available once the update has actually been pushed to the phone and this could be days even weeks after its first released.

    You are absolutely correct. You will be notified by your phone when the upgrade to Gingerbread will be available on the Incredible. We do know it is being developed, however, we still don't have an exact date as to when it will be released.

    It would seem to me that they wouldn't release a GB update for the Incredible. I get the feeling that Verizon is phasing out the handset and going to other devices like the Incredible 2, the Charge and even the Droid 3. I wouldn't expect them to put anything out, especially when no word from anyone official has been made regarding this actually taking place. :( Perhaps rooting is the only way if you want up int he updates ladder.
