Someone should probaly explain bump charging in detail, but here's how to do it.
Charge your Incredible to max (green light).
Unplug the phone and then turn it off.
Plug it back in (should have an orange light now) and charge it to max again.
Unplug the phone and turn it on. Wait for it to boot up.
Turn the phone off and then plug it back in (should be an orange light again).
Charge it to full (green light) again.
Repeat this process until the light is green immediately upon plugging it back in.
It is definitely recommended with the stock battery and anything up to the 1750mAh extended... depends on if you need it for the 3500. Some people on here do and some don't bump charge the 3500.

You don't need to bump charge the 3500...
All bump charging does is top off a battery, or slightly fill it beyond 100%, in the same way as filling up your gas tank in the car. Once the pump shuts off, it's full... But you overfill it slightly to get the dollar amount even...
