    Mine is doing the same thing since the update. And at times when I try to go back to the home screen I get a black screen and nothing will happen for a few minutes. Also noticed at times I can't do anything...meaning when I push on one of the icons on the screen or one of the bottom 4 soft keys nothing will happen...not even the short vibration indicating I pressed on one of them. And all of this started after the last OTA update.

    No problems here, the only thing I noticed is that Battery Left reports a lower battery than the system does. I will give it a few more charge cycles to see if it catches up. But otherwise no issues at all.

    Had same kinda problems with mlb-at-bat after the 2.2

    update: I think I figured out why my battery is draining so quickly. Since the update, my phone has had problem finding a good signal. Albeit the signal in my work was never that great, but the 1 bar was enough to keep it from constantly searching for the network. After the update, it doesn't pick up on that one bar as well so it spends the whole day searching, draining my battery. Might be something similar to those that are having 3g connectivity issues after the update.

    Don't really know what to do about that, except keep my phone plugged in at work. Works fine every else.

    Apps still force close randomly. More often it the browser.

    Wouldn't dialing *228 help here?
    Anyone else?

    What does *228 do on Verizon? - TreoCentral.com

    Just curious, I never received this update. Does anyone know if it was sent to all HTC Incredible devices? Or was it sorted by area code on a slow roll-out? If you did receive it list your area codes here.

    Yea, I'm expereincing the 5mg attachment limit when I try to attach a video to a gmail email. I thought this OTA was supposed to fix this issue.

    Wow. Surprised to read about these problems. I must be lucky. No FCs or other negatives, battery life is substantially improved, and car charging is now where it was before - charge increases even when I'm running GPS, streaming BT music to my car, and have the screen at 100%.

    Battery life is substantially better. Depends on the cell I use (I have two from Bidallies). One of them is letting me go 3.5 - 4 days depending on use. The other, 3+. Before the November Maintenance OTA, I was getting 2-3 days.

    I'm happy.

    I just went through a device replacement after a factory reset and found out today that Verizon made a error in the November update notes!!
    Verizon says the internal memo is indicating the restriction was set to 5Mb to limit data traffic on their network!
    What this means for all of us is that you can NO LONGER attach or FORWARD any Email over 5Mb , which is PATHETIC.

    Is this just limited to Android phones? Are there restrictions on BB or WinMo?

    No. I'm not having any issues. The battery does charge faster but other than that, I really can't see much difference. I haven't tried uploading an attachment larger than 5 MB, but I sure hope that isn't the limit as I want to be able to send HD videos through Gmail. Wherever I go, I seem to have the best phone so I'm a happy geek.;)

    This is the way it was under 2.1. Many complaints to HTC about deleting the mail on the Incredible after 2.2 - many posted in this forum. It looks like they went back to the way it was before 2.2.

    I for one switched to K-1 Mail because of this and K-1 has a setting to delete if deleted from server or leave it on the phone if deleted from the server. HTC Mail never had, and still does not have that option. It looks like I will delete K-1 Mail and just use the HTC Mail again.

    I guess I will list my issues after the udate.

    for one, i have been getting "android.process.acore" force close notifications.
    I also see weather animations no matter where on the phone I am. The weather animations follow me everywhere and they can't be turned off.
    Noticeably more lag in the system as well. apps can take a minute to open some times and when opening messaging the phone sometimes freezes and restarts.

    I had no issues till this last update

    I have this issue after installing WidgetLocker yesterday. It went away after I disabled it... I suspect WidgetLocker isnt fully compatible with the nov OTA update.

    I use Widget Locker and Launcher Pro Plus. I do not have these issues since update.

    Also, I am able to send 8 MB email via K9. Have not tried larger yet.

    No, 5Mb is the new cap on the Incredible's outbound data.

    This includes blocking of any email forwarding over 5Mb.

    Maybe, just maybe if enough of us scream to VZW they will be forced to
    remove this RIDICULOUS OUTBOUND DATA CAP !!??

    Verizon has snuck a 5Mb cap on all outbound EMAIL data including forwarded emails and any attachments , period.

    I went through a factory reset and a replacement device over this issue this week.
    Yesterday I found out from Verizon that their internal notes show that the November OTA UPDATE installs a 5Mb LIMIT to ALL outbound data!
    This has to be one of the sneakiest tricks VZW has pulled in a while to limit our data on the network that WE pay for!!
    Please, Please call VZW and DEMAND this cap be removed from your Incredible !!

    Do you think posting in bold font gets more attention?


    I decided against installing the update and I just moved a 200MB folder form my computer to my phone and then back again. So maybe the update does cap data, but I have no way to test it.
