    alright so ive had my incredible for a while now and it was great for a few months, but it went down hill very fast. battery life began to suck. some minor problems followed by an infinite boot loop twice in one week. after having verizon wipe my phone twice the phone, it just stopped doing anything. so now i have a new incredible and right out of the box this thing blows!

    here are a few big annoying problems that i need to fix:

    1. generic network failure error icon is almost always on my notifications bar.

    2. sometimes the touch screen keyboard woulnt work. it will tell me im hitting the bottons but no text appears in the text box.

    3. when i go to call history and press the person i want to call, about 60% of the time it does nothing then will randomly call that person minutes later when its in my pocket. about 30% of the time the screen will go to black for at least a minute then not call the person.

    4. when i hit the home bottom it goes to the white HTC screen then reloads all my home pages as if it were just turning on.

    any help would be great as im very tired of this expensive never working!

    also, my phone is not rooted. im using advanced task killer.

    First thing i would do is to stop using task killer. depending on how it is set up and how you are using it it definitely causes more harm than good...

    Agreed, these all seem like they "might" be caused by an overly agressive task killer

    Sounds like you haven't had it very long. Since they've already wiped it twice I'd go back and ask them to replace the phone. If they don't have an Incredible, ask them to replace it with an equivalent and see what they offer.
