    I've been playing with my Incredible for the few days I've had it and I was wondering what do other people use their Incredible for.

    So far, I've been only stuck inside my house, so I don't really use my Incredible much except to call and text and occasionally go online when I'm too lazy to turn on my laptop. Once I start school again, I'll probably have more uses for it.

    Internet, text, Navigation, facebook, fantasy baseball, I ride a motorcycle, so I use it for the weather.

    I listen to music, watch videos in the car with my daughter, basically my phone is a part of my life all day.

    I use my DI for many things (aside from the regular phone functions) from writing emails to listening to music.

    Recently, I began using my DI to record my relative's blood glucose readings from a monitor. Really neat to keep track of her diabetes.

    Fight crime. I just have to invite villains to join my latitude, then I can stalk and attack.

    I've gotten 4 so far.

    This is pretty much my daily routine... Woken up by the alarm, I usually make a quick check of Facebook and the weather.. On the drive in to class I play Pandora on the truck stereo with a bluetooth FM transmitter. If I show up early I'll watch a bit of Sportscenter with Slingplayer. Between classes I browse message boards, or check up on the news. After class I usually go running on the trails, where I listen to Pandora and use SportyPal to track my distance with GPS. The usual text and emails throughout the day, and then sometimes I actually use it to make phonecalls.
    Non daily uses: Grocery shopping lists and navigation.

    I use it solely for all my decision making. I considered deleting the Magic Eight Ball app after it told me to go ahead and give the kids away, but that has actually worked out GREAT!

    Actually.... I use it for everything. Lists, music, navigation, alarm, weather, Twitter, Facebook, price checking/comparison, calculator, Kindle.....so much.

    Loads of stuff...the possibilities are nigh endless. But to start, music/video player, GPS tracking for runs/walks/hikes, track work schedule and tasks (Google Calendar/Gtasks is awesome), primary source of social networking (FB/Twitter), newsreader (Buzzbox, Engadget), and web appliance for sports updates and other websites. Truly, an "incredible" device.

    First and foremost as a phone! This is the best phone I have ever owned from call quality to ease of use. Secondly as a PDA. Coming from a Palm background, I have to admit that apps for doing this are generally lacking and there is not a lot of inter-connectivity between the OS and apps like the Palm but it is getting better. I use it a lot for texting, email and some web surfing. I do listen to music but typically Pandora not MP3's. I have used the nav and maps but not a lot so far. I inadvertently use it to make my wife jealous because she got an iphone 4 and is disappointed that this phone kicks her phone's ass!

    Nothing appropriate, even for the internet. :eek: But i used it to text, browse, sync, use apps, Magic 8 Ball for the win! Use it to make a lot of decisions, but with all the features it has, why wouldnt you use them??

    I'm considering getting one of those EVO 4G phones, I hear that they print money, grant wishes, and that they can transform into a jet and fly you to the island that one of its apps built you.

    If I'm driving with the top down on my convertible I use the dinc to hold down any papers I might have in the passenger seat.

    I use mine for watching TV shows and movies, streaming youtube, playing multiplayer games, reading the news, listening to music, controlling all of my computers at home and work, texting, and talking.

    The coolest thing i do is the controlling of my computers at home and work. I use a combination of orb, VNC, gmote and multiremote to do anything with any of my computers that I want basically.
