    You can also bring up the thumbnail by pinching two fingers in, from any of the home screens. And by the way there are 7 homescreens not 6 haha.
    if you are on any of the home screens and take two fingers at opposite corners and pull them towards the center of the screen it will take you to the option to pick from any 7 home screens.

    Interesting feature but easier to just hit the home button twice to get the same result.

    Bigslam, that would only get you to the main home screen, rather than give you immediate access to all 7. In some cases might be faster than scrolling from very right to very left. Just different options

    Default ##778 > View Mode > Display

    I think this is worth sharing. I originally read this in a post by drjrdemelo.

    Anyone who may be concerned that their "new" replacement is actually a refurb can do this. To check within the OS to see if there are any records of refurbishment:

    Call ##778 > View Mode > Display

    ---

    I presume that seeing the following means your phone is in fact new, not refurbished:

    Refurbishment Status
    <Not Available>

    Refurbishment Date
    <Not Available>

    This put my mind at ease when I received my replacement Inc.
    Palm Treo 650 > Treo 700p > BB Curve 8330 > DInc (r) > Rezound (r) > custom Moto X
    Transformer Pad Infinity (r CROMi-X)

    If you receive a phone number within an email, press and holding the number will pop-up options to call or SMS or add to contacts.

    If this has been mentioned before I apologize. I searched the forums to see if there is anyway to turn the soft button backlight on when it is off. Not sure if this is intentional but if the backlight is off after you unlock it will turn on if you rotate left as if going to landscape. Rotate back to portrait and it stays on until you hit the top button or the screen times out. I know the backlight is sensor controlled so maybe this is unintentional however if it is a bug it is a bug it is a good one for my needs.

    Default The Inc. won't send SMS pictures to another phone if the Resolution is too high

    I was trying to send SMS pictures to other phones and wasn't having success.

    I discovered that it is because I had the camera set on a resolution that was too high.

    To change your settings for the camera, open the camera, then :

    1. pull out the > icon
    2. check settings ( looks like to gears)
    3. select standard ( not widescreen)
    4. set resolution to 1 M 1280 x 960.

    This didn't seem to make too much of a difference is picture quality.

    If you have the resolution set too high, you will get an error message that the file is too large.

    Regardless of the size of the photo, the phone should automatically create a compressed version of the photo suitable for sending. There should be no need to actually change settings before taking the picture.

    When I go to "send" a picture I just took, the phone puts up a message "Picture is too large, would you like to resize?" I say "yes" and it goes.

    If you have someone's birthday entered in their contact information, a red circle will appear next to their name on their birthday. Tapping on the contact will bring up a pop-up to call them, email them, or SMS.

    This covered in other threads, but worth mentioning: if you hook up your Incredible to your car speakers through the aux or cassette deck adapter, it turns into a giant speakerphone. You can listen to streaming internet music (Pandora, for example) and use Navigation at the same time. If you get a phone call, Pandora will stop and you can talk on the phone. I've heard Navigation will continue during a phone call, but I haven't tried it yet. Bluetooth speakerphone isn't all that necessary.

    Former Blackberry users will especially appreciate this: hitting the space bar 2x while typing a message will automatically place a period after the last typed letter.

    UPDATE: The Handcent SMS application is doing this re-size for me.

    Pressing and holding an address in Gmail or the internet will bring up a pop-up to show the location on Maps.

    If you are trying to import contacts manually from a Palm Treo (mine was a 700p), you can use Google Goggles to scan in the contact. Just bring up any single contact in your old Palm, bring up Goggles, use the crop tool in Goggles and take a picture. Select Add Contact.

    It's not perfect, but it could save you a lot of typing.

    I renamed each as to what it was..."sd card" or "phone mem" using the Windows rename drive protocol.

    From your Windows desktop, left click computer>right click on the appropriate drive listed, then rename.

    Default Email Auto-delete after one day

    This works with any POP3 email account. I like to monitor my email for the day but then have it auto deleted.

    - Click the Mail icon (find it in all programs or on your home screen usually)
    - Click Menu /More /Settings
    - Click Send & Receive (provides more options)
    - Click Download options
    - Set to "By days" and "Today's"

    Your mail will download all day but the next day it will be gone (even from the Trash). Great to keep track of things and not have to manually manage the mail.

    If you go to Settings > Applications > Development, there is an option to "Stay Awake" while the phone is charging.

    It may or may not be a setting you want to have enabled all the time, but it will allow the screen to stay unlocked while docked (assuming the dock is charging the device).

    Note: the screen does dim slightly after a short time of no user input, but just tapping it brings it back to full brightness without needing to swipe-unlock.
    Quoting myself because after several days I began having issues with the phone not sleeping even when not plugged in. Removed this setting and rebooted to fix it.

    If you downloaded Robo Defense, make sure you stop the program when not playing. The game keeps the phone from sleeping and will cookie monster your battery.

    Great tip. I was really starting to miss my multi select from my Storm. That was about the only thing I was missing from it. But this works great. I do wish there was a multi select on messages.

    I don't know which BB you had, but BBs from the 8730 and newer had this feature.

    Here is a tip I just learned:

    If you want your email accounts to update as items arrive, ensure you have Auto-sync enabled. If you don't, it will default to manual. Huge PIA if you don't know what is going on. I was | | this close to winging the phone out my top floor window. But we have made up and are friends again.

    Here is how to get to Auto-sync:

    Settings > Accounts & Sync > Auto-sync (make sure the box is checked)

    That was his point. BB has the feature; therefore, BB owners will be happy to know that Android has the same feature.

    Yup, it's all available in settings, depending upon which apps you're using for messaging.

    My question is how do I get my ring tones from my SD card on to
    The phone so I can use it.
    When I slapped my sd card from my old Storm into the DInc it automatically grabbed the ringtones and made them available in the list where you select the tone under Settings. I didn't have to do anything like create another folder, etc.

    Since I've seen a few references to the cumbersomeness of the Manage Applications menu...

    If you want to find a specific application in Menu> Settings> Manage Applications, load up that view and then click menu and select "sort by size," then click menu again and select "sort A-Z." Much easier to find the app in question that way.
