View Poll Results: Have you had a defective phone in which Verizon had to give you a replacement?
- 74. You may not vote on this poll
No - I love my phone. It functions as it should (minor bugs of course)
Yes - I think it's defective, but Verizon doesn't agree with me and won't give me a replacement
Yes - It's defective and Verizon agrees with me and has given me a replacement
Are you happy with your phone/is it defective?
Okay so many of us have already had our phone for almost a week now. Some have had defective ones and have gotten replacements.. others are happy with their phone.
For future Incredible users.. they probably come to this website thinking "Wow so many problems with this phone.. Nevermind, I don't want it."
But the reality is.. most people who are happy with their phones (haven't had defective ones) won't really say much about it. You always hear about the bad things and never the good things.
I am putting up a poll to see if you are happy with your phone and it's not a defective one.
If you have a defective one.. please post what was wrong with the original that made you swap out for a replacement from Verizon?

Unfortunately, I can't tell if mine's defective or not. I've described in previous posts that my calls sounds very "tinny", but I can't decide if that's my phone or just the way the Incredible sounds.-Strygun

Mine acts funny when it's charging and I'm talking on the bluetooth. The screen will keep trying to turn off by itself. I think it's a software thing. The screen turns off automatically during a phone call when you hold it next to your face to save battery life. There's hardware that physically senses when you hold it next to your face.
Obviously, when you use bluetooth, you don't hold the phone up next to your face to talk, but the screen will turn off by itself to save battery life anyway. I'm not sure how it's programmed to trigger turning off the screen in this instance. For some reason, it doesn't compute that I'm using other functions on the phone while talking on bluetooth and it wants to turn off the screen.

When you place the phone next to your face during a call.. there is a sensor that knows this and turns the screen black to save battery.. as soon as you move it away from your face. .the sensor knows this and lights the screen back up

If I'm on bluetooth and surfing the web at the same time (through wifi), the screen will turn off by itself sometimes. It doesn't do it all the time, but when it happens, I can be actively touching the screen and it will still turn off by itself. If I hit the power button to turn the screen back on, it will turn on for several seconds and then turn off again, even while I'm actively touching the screen. Then it becomes an endless cycle of hitting the power button, the screen turning off by itself, hitting the power button again, and the screen turning itself off. I usually give up after several tries at keeping the screen active. Once the call is ended, everything returns to normal.

I've seen a few others mention this problem but no clear fix or theories. During voice calls the earpiece sounds distorted (buzzes) at certain pitches, similar to a blown speaker. It's not THAT bad but is definitely annoying me. Hope its a network thing and not my phone. Anyone else have this happening?

While you are using a bluetooth headset during a phone call, wave a finger over (without touching the phone) over the light sensor. The screen will turn off. The location is such that if you accidentally cover the light sensor and then you start reaching for the power button to turn the screen back on, you will keep tripping the light sensor to turn off the screen.
At least the phone is smart enough to turn off the light sensor when you are on speakerphone. I'm not quite sure how to easily switch back and forth from bluetooth and speakerphone during a phone call though.

Picked my first Incredible up at Best Buy on launch coming from the BB Storm 9550 it was night and day was absolutely blown away by android and the device. Had to return my first one because I notice an abnormal "fuzz" sound when music was very low or I had it on speaker phone. The replacement is working A ok and I couldn't be happier...Android for life lol
