I HATE the Droid "Incredible" and I can't wait till my contract ends!

I'VE BEEN WITH VERIZON FOR 9 YEARS AND I'M SO OVER THERE SERVICE! I HAVE HAD THIS PIECE OF CRAP PHONE FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS (20 MONTHS TO BE EXACT) AND IT HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS AND ISSUES
FOR STARTERS, (removed to comply with VZW Community ToS)! I HAVE A CHARGER AT HOME, IN THE CAR AND AT WORK. I'VE TRIED TURING OFF THE GPS TO SAVE SOME LIFE BUT THAT DOESN'T HELP. I HARDLY USE THE INTERNET, BUT GOD FORBID I CHECK MY EMAIL BECAUSE THAT WILL MEAN MY FULLY CHARGED BAR IS NOW AT 50%. YES, I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT GETTING A NEW BATTERY. I MIGHT AS WELL GET A NEW BATTERY EVERY 3 MONTHS THEN. BELIEVE ME, THE "SUPPORT" TECHS THAT I'VE DEALT WITH DON'T KNOW ANY MORE THAN WHAT I ALREADY KNEW! "RESTART YOUR PHONE." "TAKE THE BATTERY OUT." "MAKE SURE YOU UPGRADE." HOW ABOUT GIVING ME A FREAKING PHONE THAT FREAKING WORKS!! I'VE UPGRADED THE SOFTWARE BEFORE AND IT SEEM TO HAVE MADE IT EVEN WORSE!
DROPPED CALLS ARE MY FAVORITE PASTIME WITH THIS PHONE. YEA, I LIKE HAVING AN IMPORTANT CONVERSATION JUST TO HAVE THE CALL DROPPED. I HAVE TO CRAMP MYSELF IN A CORNER JUST TO MAKE A CALL, AND NO I DO NOT LIVE UP IN THE TREES. THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE WITH ME HAVE VERIZON AND CAN MAKE CALLS JUST FINE.
OH, I ALSO LOVE WHEN MY PHONE IS FINALLY CHARGED (AFTER 3 HOURS) AND I UNPLUG IT AND MY PHONE SHUTS OFF. NO BUTTONS PRESSED. IT JUST SHUTS OFF. IT ALSO SHUTS OFF ON ITS OWN WHEN I TEXT TOO MUCH AND I JUST LOVE HOW IT FREEZES WHEN I USE THE CAMERA. ALLOWING ME TO HAVE TO TAKE THE BATTERY OUT (AGAIN) JUST SO I CAN GET IT TO WORK PROPERLY.
VERIZON OFFERS NO "SUPPORT". I HAVE TO WAIT TILL MY RIDICULOUS 2 YEAR CONTRACT TO END IN ORDER FOR ME TO GET A NEW PHONE. UNLESS OF COURSE I WANT TO SHELL OUT $500+ FOR A NEW ONE TODAY. I ALREADY PAY A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT EVERY MONTH FOR MY CRAPPY CONTRACT, SO NO. YOU WILL NOT BE NICKEL AND DIMMING ME ANY FURTHER. THERE ARE OTHER PHONE CARRIERS THAT OFFER MY SAME PLAN AND FOR LESS AND WITH THE PHONE I WANT. I REALLY THOUGHT BEING A LOYAL CUSTOMER STILL MEANT SOMETHING THESE DAYS, BUT WHO AM I KIDDING. I'M JUST A DROP IN THE BUCKET TO THEM.

    Gjr8103, I agree with you! Having issues with your phone is never a good time and I’m here to help! I want you to have a working phone that you’re happy with and would hate to lose you as a customer. Let’s get to the bottom of this!
From what you mentioned it seems you’re having quite a few issues. Did they start after a recent software update? How long is your battery lasting? Is the phone charging completely? Keep in mind the battery life depends on the usage and Internet access will definitely use up the battery faster.
Let make sure a third party app previously downloaded on the phone isn’t causing the problems. Run the device in safe mode http://bit.ly/p5eed2 and see if you notice a difference. If you see an improvement you will need to delete all third party apps and reinstall them one at a time to determine which one is causing the problem.
If there is no improvement while in Safe Mode the next step would be a hard reset. Since you are having so many issues with the phone a hard reset is highly recommended. This will even help out with the dropped calls your experiencing.  I know this can be very inconvenient to do but, it’s a very important step in getting these issues resolved.
If you are still having the same issue after the hard reset http://bit.ly/oOaRQt please send me a DM with your name and mobile so I can access your account and see what options are available to you.

  • I can't wait until my contract ends!

    Couldn't believe it...Phone customer care to ask if and increase from 10Mb download to 40Mb download would increase my contract length.........?
    Yes it would.................Not this callsign I can't wait until I get Sky!
    Remember that if you live on the outskirts of an area you are charged the same but don't get the same speeds!

    And the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence... Since you are going to drop Verizon, are you sure your coverage from other carriers is sufficient for you? Just make sure it works for you, and if you can switch, get good coverage, and save money, kudos to you.

  • Why the inconsistency with the "Droid" name and Android devices.

    This seems like poor marketing to me.
    Verizon made such a big deal about the name DROID.
    The was the DROID and the DROID ERIS, now there is the DROID INCREDIBLE and the DROID X and soon to be the DROID 2.
    But why is there the Moto Devour and LG Ally instead of the DROID DEVOUR by Motorola and the DROID ALLY by LG?

    I can't help it just say Incredible, or HTC Incredible. I leave out the "droid" nonsense because I always get some cell phone illiterate person saying "you got a droid cool, my entire family just got free ones on an upgrade". You know what I'm saying. It's just annoying to have to explain or show people what I have and what they have or want.. 
    I really wish VZW let Moto only use that term.
    Back when the Incredible was a rumor it was cool to think something different was coming out. They announced it as the HTC "Droid" Incredible. Geez.... Whatever....
    YEah I get what they are doing but it is leading to a lot of irritation.  People talk about the DROID and could be talking about any of them.  So yeah I just call them the Droid (moto Droid), Incredible (HTC DROID Incredible), Eris (HTC DROID ERIS), Ally (LG Droid ALLY), Devour (Moto Droid Devour), Droid X (because DROID X just sounds awesome even if Droid is over done).  I would like a Samsung personally mostly because I have had nothing but good experiences with Samsung phones and since my Droid was good with phone calls (better after some modding) I have to think that a Samsung Android phone would be Gnarly on VZW.  It is odd but it seems to me certain manufacturers are better on GSM and some are better on CDMA.  Samsung and LG seem better on CDMA where Motorola and a few others are better with GSM.  Or at least that has been my experience with feature phones over the last what 15 years.  Or I guess not when ever 3G came out would be GSM/CDMA but also back when I was on Sprint, Bell South, and GTE,  Bell South I had great luck with Nokia and Moto - Eventually they became GSM and were swollowed by AT&T a few years ago, Sprint my Moto was good but I always had better signals with Samsung and LG phones, and GTE which shortly after was swollowed by Verizon has always been good with Samsung and LG (LG has been a little more hit or miss they have had a few misses though which is why I am more excited about Samsung than LG) and the MOTOROLA phones I had were the ones where I was counting the days until my upgrade. 
    The DROID name is about branding.  They want to stand out as a big ANDROID player and one way to do that is to snatch up as many Android phones as you can get the manufacturers to make you and the other is to unify their image on your network with Branding.  The idea being to get people thinking DROID and kind of downplay the Motorola, HTC, LG, Samsung, etc roles.  Really it is something Google should have thought and had it on all the Android phones but Verizon is using it mostly for marketing purposes.  It makes for some interesting commercials and has been successful.  What gets me though is when people refer to EVO and Mytouch Slide as Droids because they are Android phones.  LOL.  Doesn't bother me but probably would bother Verizon if it ever made it to a major platform.  The marketing is so effective it is about to be like Jello and Aspirin and Coke in the south.  Any gelatin desert or generic Aspirin or soda is called by one of these names no matter who makes it.  Bayer lost that battle a long time ago but the other two persist.

  • Droid Incredible and GoDaddy POP email problems.  Please HELP!!!!!

    My prior phone (LG Touch) used mobile email and I accessed my GoDaddy mail account with no problems.
    I just got the HTC Droid Incredible and was on the phone for hours with tech support with no resolution.
    I am able to receive email but cannot send it.  This almost makes this smartphone worthless to me.
    Here are my settings:
    Incoming POP server:  pop.secureserver.net  (Port 110 with no security)
    Outgoing SMTP Server:  smtpout.secureserver.net (Port 25 or 80)
    Incoming Works.  Outgoing does not.  I can't believe this is a problem considering GoDaddy is the largest hosting
    company in america.  They assure me that the problem is not on their end.
    The only thing I can do at this point is use the GoDaddy app to send and receive email.  This sucks cause there are
    extra steps involved and it's obviously not as nice as the built-in email feature for this phone.
    Has anyone encountered this problem with the outgoing mail using GoDaddy?
    Thanks in advance for your suggestions

    Have you tried K9 for email?  You should!
    You should be ok using port 80, security type: None, and                           try checking require sign-in

  • DROID Incredible and Mobile Broadband

    I just upgraded to a DROID Incredible and want to tether my device and use Mobile Broadband.  The problem is I have a MacBook with OS X 10.5.8. 
    Is it posiible to tether the Incredible to the MacBook?  If so, how do I do it?  The software that came with the phone was for Windows. I have AccessMgr on my Mac as I used to tether an LG Env3.
    Thanks for the help.

    You can as long as you are on android 2.2, go into settings>wireless and networks and enable it, but you do have to pay extra for it.

  • Droid Incredible and a Mac laptop

    I'm new here so please excuse me if I've done this wrong. I got my Driod almost a month ago and the salesman said I could tether my phone to my laptop. I think I just figured out that the Droid Incredible is not compatible with a Mac. Does anyone know if this is correct? And does any one know if any of the Droid's are compatible with a Mac.
    Thanks for your help!
    Debbie

    I have a Macbook and a DINC and it hooks up just fine. When you plug your USB cable in, the Mac laptop will likely pop up an error. Just hit the ignore button. On the DINC, you will get your normal screen to choose "Charge Only"..etc etc. When you choose to mount the phone, it should pop up two drive icons. One for the phone, one for an SD card if you have one installed.
    Then you can drag and drop whatever files you want. Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Contact Rhapsody to see if they have or plan to release an update for the app. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Have you tried resetting your device by pressing and holding the Home button and power button until the silver apple appears?

  • Avoid the Droid Bionic and if you are a potential customer, avoid Verizon

    Back on November 16th, just 15 days ago, I purchased the Droid Bionic phone.  Twice in the past two days the screen has stopped working, but I know the phone is still on because I can hear the notification alerts as well as see the blinking lights for a text message and such and can hear the phone ring when I have had a call.  I have had to pop out the battery and reinsert it to get the phone working. 
    One would think that a phone bought brand new that is already experiencing problems and that someone paid a lot of money for would be replaced.  Well, not with Verizon.  I talked to someone at the Verizon store where I purchased it and was told that they would not replace it but would only go through warranty services in which I would recieve what Verizon likes to call a "certified 'like' new" phone.  Now, to anyone with common sense, this is what normal people call a used phone.  But telling the manager that it is wrong to replace a brand new phone with a used one completely confused her and made her argue that it wasn't used.
    I recently went through the hassle of one of these used, oh excuse me "certified 'like' new" phones.  About a month before my phone contract expired, my previous phone, the LG enV Touch went bad.  Now I am someone who prides myself on taking care of my electronic equipment.  The person at the Verizon store who helped me with the warranty process on it was impressed how my enV Touch looked new even after 2 years.  The replacement "certified 'like' new" phone I recieved had a scratched screen, gunk around the 2 bottom buttons on the front, and a filthy keyboard.  It hadn't even been cleaned and took me quite a while to clean the gunk from the buttons.  I said nothing, which was a mistake on my part, because I knew I would be getting a new phone in about a months time.
    It is just absolutely ridiculous, and bad customer service, that after just 15 days someone who spends a fairly sizable sum of money would have to exchange out a new phone with a used phone.  I have a family share plan with Verizon with 2 lines coming up for renewal in a couple of weeks.  Verizon will not continue my business on those lines and I am sure that one of the other companies will be glad to get it.
    And to Verizon, perhaps you should rethink how you treat customers.  I have been with Verizon ever since they moved to Huntsville when they bought out GTE Wireless.  I can understand a 14 day exchange policy being strictly enforced when there is no issue with a product, but when a product shows to be defective on the 15th day, it's rather very poor customer relation to tell them they have to take a used product a half a month after buying something new when it is no fault of the customer.
    I hope this helps anyone who may be considering the Droid Bionic and Verizon.

    That's always been standard practice for Verizon. Six years ago, my LG Chocolate went - like new replacement. Then my EnV3 - like new. It's the manufacturer who should be more responsible. I was really hoping I wouldn't have the same issues my with my new Bionic!  Good luck. Hey, if you have a problem, I would go to a Verizon owned store and check out your replacement before you accept it. Gunk is gross.

  • Why isn't there blogs for the Droid X2 and Droid 3?

    Thats it.....Both phones are important parts of Verizon's line up and have been out for a while......

    I can see the logic with the Droid X2 as it's similar to the outgoing X other than the dual core processor and higher res screen. The Droid 2 and D2 Global were facelifted versions of the original Motorola Droid, with higher clocked processors and better keyboards. All the hard points were the same as the OG Droid, especially under the back cover, battery placement, SD card etc. were nearly identical to the original Droid.
    The Droid 3 isn't similar to the Droid 2, it's a completely new device. The phone is larger, slightly thinner and shares no part of its design with the D2. The screen, keyboard, guts, all of it are new. I think there should be a dedicated to the D3 for that reason. Just my humble opinion.

The calendars on my iPhone are not keeping the information on the days that should be marked.  The info is there in my iCloud on my computer, just not on my phone.   Has anyone else had the same problem and what can I do about it?  Is it at bug in the iOS 7 update?

    What do you mean by "on the days that should be marked"?  Are you calendar events displayed on the wrong days?

  • I have an iPod Touch but I currently don't have a PC.  I found an app that would allow me to connect to my network drive and I was able to transfer music files to it.  These files do not show under the Music app and I can't find any way to do it.

    I need help from some Apple people. I have an iPod Touch and I wanted to load it up with some fresh music but I currently don't have a PC. I found an app that would allow me to connect to my 2TB network drive directly and I was able to transfer a bunch of music files to the iPod. Unfortunately, these new files do not show under the Music app and I can't seem to find any way to convince the iPod that they are music. I can play them through the file manager only. Android doesn't have this problem, any music I put on my phone is recognized as music and can be played through any of the music apps. Am I missing something or is Apple to inflexible to handle this?

    You can't. The only way to get songs in the Music app is to sync from a computer or to download from iTunes.

    Hi everyone! I tried to install the new iOs 7 on my iphone 4, but it wasn't completed (showing error 4005). Now, my iphone is stuck on the itunes' logo with the usb cord, and I can't use my phone. And itunes doesn't detect my iphone when I connect it on my computer, so I can't put it in recovery mode or someting like that... What can I do?? I tried everything they tell me to do in the apple support but nothing seems to work. Thank you!

    No problem, glad to help!
    Update: my PC USB hub was connected to a USB 3 port, I connected the 30 pin cable directly to my PC, And the restore worked just fine. Restored phone from iCloud backup and seems to be working fine.
