    Hey guys,

    I was just looking at my Incredible 2 today and above the shorter leg of the Verizon checkmark (between that and the earpiece, there are two little circles that are purple/bluish tints. What are these for? They are about the size of the front facing camera. I couldn't take a picture of my phone so I just rotated the Inc2 on the Verizon website to point out where it is. This isn't a defect in my phone right? otherwise it would be one hell of a bad one haha.

    Those are your phone sensors :) I just remember that one is the proximity sensor.

    Check to see where the radio on your phone is. The original Incredible, Desire and Nexus One all have the radio at the bottom of the phone. So if your hand covers that area, reception decreased.

    One is a proximity sensor, and the other is the ambient light sensor used for automatic screen brightness.

    Thanks TheAtheistReverend, just the information I wanted.

    Sorry to divert from the topic of the thread but regarding my radio, no matter which way I turn it at home I still get 0-1 bars with -90ish to -100ish signal. I have taken it out with me and have gotten 4 bars and -60 in some places but I would like to see mostly 4 bars rather than mostly 1 bar. I can still call from my house, even with no bars, but at work where I used to be able to call with 1ish bars on my Env3, I get absolutely no signal on my Inc2. Thought a newer phone would have a better radio. Oh well, love the phone otherwise.

    All we can do for now is hope that HTC releases a fix for the reception issue. This can be adjusted via a software upgrade if HTC releases one.

    thought it was more of a hardware issue if I'm not mistaken
