    I have an Incredible with a bad esn and theoretically want it to function like a tablet and use it for web/music/games like an iPod Touch. I would like to remove the phone features completely but I don't know if it's possible. Anyone know. Currently it's rooted and running Incredibly-Re-Engineered-v2 ROM.

    You don't need to remove the phone features... Just don't use them... Maybe I'm not understanding the question. But I guess you could use the sdk or titanium to delete the phone apps but it might cause it to become unstable.
    No word on a stable honeycomb build which would be what you are looking for. Or if you could get a nook or galaxy tab rom ported.

    Thanks for the reply. Right now I am using the phone for music and web and just ignoring the phone-specific features, the galaxy tab/nook rom is more of what I had in mind. I get that it's basically the same thing but since I don't really care about this phone I want to play around a little.

    Sounds like a cool idea, but probably not enough developer support to get a stable port to the incredible. If you don't care too much about the phone, I wouldn't be too afraid to experiment and maybe start disabling the phone features with titanium or the sdk and see what happens.
