    Anyone using the HTC Incredible on Verizon?

    How are you liking it? I'm getting one soon. It will be my first smartphone.

    I haven't done the research yet but I read that there's some quirk where certain apps don't shut down properly and that's what drains the battery. And I think there's a fix for it. Have you checked into that already?

    Re: Anyone using the HTC Incredible on Verizon?

    I have this device.

    Its pretty slick. It has a 1GHZ processor, so its really quick for a phone.
    Also the built in 8gb internal is nice, you also have sd slot for expansion.

    If you are a google account user, this is your device. I have the calendar/contacts/email through google and it is integrated into the phone pretty good.

    the apps are "ok"...not quite on the level as Apple but they are getting better each day and with more options.

    Biggest hit against this phone is the lack of a good battery. You Will be charging this thing every night, even with moderate usage.

    any specific questions?

    This is the phone I would get if I didn't get a iPhone for work. Nothing but good reviews everywhere too:

    On the Eris, if you turn off the GPS then it saves your battery a lot. They are essentially the same phone with upgraded processor, screen, ect so I would assume that would work with the Incredible as well.

    Yeah, occasionally you have to fiddle with it to close apps and make sure they don't run in the background.

    This was kind of the dilemma I was in as well, but I really wouldnt hold your breathe on the Iphone coming to Verizon thing. I dont see that happen for atleast another year, if it comes at all.

    Of course I could be wrong, Wouldnt be the first or last time.

    There's been a lot more smoke about it this time around than previously (even the WSJ was reporting it awhile back) , and at this point its only a few weeks until we can get word straight from apple.

    I'm currently using a windows OS phone and thinking about going to this phone. Is the OS on the Incredible similar to windows?

    Dont know much about windows mobile OS but I would guess its more locked down then Android 2.1

    You can basically do whatever you want with the Android 2.1 within reason.
    Of course this is a good and bad thing, depending on how knowledgeable you are.
