    So I returned my Motorola Droid on April 19th to order the Dinc. I loved the Motorola Droid but i like sense and the 8mp camera. I received the Dinc on April 21st and have had problems since day one. I love the camera, the sense, and the color of the screen. The Dinc can do some many cool things, but I have had more problems then I can image. Since day one my MMS won't download, I'm using stock app and have auto retrieve set. I got a replacement thinking that would fix it, wrong. My second Dinc blown speaker, mms problem, and a lot more. Third Dinc blown speaker two weeks after I got it, also mms problem. Yes the mms is a problem for me bc I do about 20 a week. Verizon is sending me my fourth Dinc. I wonder if its time to use an upgrade and bail on the Dinc.

    Sucks about the mms problem. I have no solutions for you, I just know mine works. I hope you get it all figured out so you can remain a member of the DIncs.

    Yea it kinda stinks bc I like the incredible but just way to many problems. I'm thinking of jumping to the DX and see how it is. I didn't have problems with the original Droid so hope the X's is less problematic.

    I'm sorry that this is off topic, but I think calling this phone the Dinc is dumb. I have been on this board a while, but it has always bothered me. Why can't we just call it the Incredible? It's not much more to type. Sorry for the rant.

    Same here -- got mine a day before release from pre-ordering it. Haven't had a single hardware problem yet. Software -- That's all my fault. Rooting and hacking and whatnot, but I expect that. Currently it's running smooth and doing everything I want, with a battery that lasts 20+ hours (underclock while screen is off does wonders).

    I am getting my 3rd Incredible this week all for blown speakers. There has got to be a way to prevent this.

    LOL I thought I was the only one, I always call it the Incredible. Calling it the DInc makes it sound like a toy. I also never call it the Droid Incredible .. it is either the HTC Incredible or just the Incredible.

    I find it so weird that so many people have had issues with the phone and mine has been fine since I snagged it just after launch (May 3). Are there a bunch of lemon Incredibles floating around out there?

    Regardless, I hope you either get a working Incredible or a suitable replacement phone.

    I had my Dinc since day 1 and MMS works perfectly and my speaker's still going strong. I actually play it pretty loud from day to day when showering, cooking, and working out. The speaker's not the best I've ever had in a phone (that goes to my BB Bold 9000) but it's holding strong!

    Sorry to hear you had problems! A friend of mine actually wanted the Dinc, but got frustrated waiting for it to get back in stock and got a DX. I played around with it a bit, but it's way too big for me. I think he felt the same way, in fact I seemed more excited than him to check it out at first. Oh well, that's why Android is great--more options to suit everyone!

    :)

    haha i'll trade you my droid x for your incredible :)

    Seriously, i think on a lot of phones MMS is an issue

    most of the time my mms won't download unless i keep repetitively hitting it OVER AND OVER again for it to download it

    this has happened on my droid, eris, droid x and my one day with my incredible

    and you can't be connected to wi-fi when you download mms(that is what somebody told me)

    I am having a love hate relationship with my droid x and i am considering the incredible but i am a little nervous reading about the issues people are having

    lol thank you hon
     
  19. My 3rd DInc is an angel........ <-- Shouldn't have to be that way. The 1st one I got pre-launch and it was buggy and had a mind of it's own and acted like a brat. I dropped 2ft to the ground & that one and the screen cracked.

    DInc number 2 had a screen clarity issues (fuzzy) and had a pink screen. I love pink it's my favorite color for everything but my phone screen.

    DInc #3 is what #1 & #2 should have been.

    As many of us were early adapters we have to be prepared to ride out the kinks and bugs.

    I think dinc sounds dumb also. In a country where everything has to have a silly little nickname, even drinc would sound better...

    No issues with MMS here but I get the low storage notification every 3-4 weeks it seems regardless of now having about 25 added apps on the phone and a clear trash and sent box in Gmail. It's annoying to have to factory reset every month but I still love the phone.

    Do people with MMS problems have them with Handcent?

    As for the DInc debate, I can;t say without chuckling "I love my DInc"

    I use DI for short sometimes. Sometimes Incy.... time for a thread on this.

    I run that speaker at maximum volume pretty much every day (streaming Pandora on my way to the office or in my workshop) and I got it at launch. No problems at all.

    You guys are making me wish I'd bought an insurance plan...
