    My Incredible is out for delivery, will be in my hands any moment now.

    What accessories should I look at purchasing?

    Best case/screen protector?
    Car mount?
    Do I need the extended life battery?

    Verizon Black High Gloss Silicone Case (it's somewhat flexible, slick, similar feeling to a hard case when on, and won't slip off of phone)

    Steinheil Crystal Screen Protector

    And I recently bought the stock 1500 mAh battery, originally for the HTC Imagio, but fits just fine in the Incredible. It seems to be working pretty well so far, only had it for the weekend.

    1. search the forum, these questions are answered in detail in different threads.

    2. I love Seidio Innocase II, screen protector, and universal holster (found one that fits perfectly)

    3. I bought a cheap car mount from ebay that works perfectly (vent mounted). I vent mount because in the summer the air conditioning with help keep the battery from heating too much and it keeps it out of as much sun. It cost me under $10 including shipping.

    4. I would wait until froyo to buy an extended battery. See if you need it. Being a lithium battery, you can charge anytime you are near a plug or usb port. I bought 2 1500 eris replacements with battery charger (charges battery outside your phone) and it works really well. when I have heavy use and no charger, I can switch out batteries.

    5. That is all the accessories I have bought. The phone doesnt need much, just protection!!!!!!

    I've done virtually the same:
    innocase II is fantastic and I don't use screen protectors because I can never get them on the right way (always a corner lifting up)
    bought a $5 universal car mount from ebay also with vent mount, although I don't know if I can attach to my vents in my acura as they are on a slant, still gotta check that out
    and I bought 2 1500 mah batteries with charger from ebay for $10. they work fine, although they are probably no better than stock battery. it's still nice to have extra

    I hope froyo does improve battery life as that is my one complaint with this phone. I probably charge 3 times a day just to be safe.
    Phone is awesome otherwise and froyo will make it as good as any phone out there and definitely better than iphone

    I have noticed a HUGE difference between stock battery and the replacements. The replacements last a bit longer and dont get nearly as hot. If froyo makes battery life better, as reported, I will be more than set!

    As for screen protector, I got them at VZW on sale. It isnt perfect but you cant really tell with the case on. I am a bigtime clutz so I want to protect it even if it doesnt look perfect.

    I've got the following

    -Hong Kong 3000MAH Battery and Fat Back
    -Verizon 2150 w/ Black Silicon Case custom fitted
    -32gb MicroSD
    -Generic Screen Protector (works pretty good and can barely notice it's there)
    -Body Glove Case and a TP2 1500mah battery (use it for when I take my phone on bike rides and other phone hazardous activites )
    -Best Accessory is my Moto RokR 505 awesome FM Bluetooth transmitter use it at home and my car. Never need to keep my phone pluged in and sounds very good once you find the perfect FM channel to use
    I have multiple cases and multiple battery covers , I just get bored with one and swap it to something else for a few days , keeps things fresh haha


    and yes the 32gig card works perfectly , I have about 20gigs on it right now

    Where did you get the 32gb card?
    I got this one, and I hope it's legit, but if not, 35 bucks back to me and no harm done!

    lol yeah, but i guess with the eBay buyer protection thing, I'm safe in that I can actually send them the test results to show whether it's legit or not. I mean, the guy has sold 24 of them, so I dont know why nobody would have put up feedback if it was bad, but I know I will.
    *honestly, speed doesn't really matter too much to me, as long as it is 32gb capacity and useable*
