Droid Incredible Receives New Packaging

Starting tomorrow, shipments of the Droid Incredible will come pre-loaded with a 2GB SD card and quite possibly new “Droid” themed packaging similar to that of the Motorola Droid.  We have yet to actually see a picture of the new packaging, but you know we’ll be on the hunt for it.

On a side note, the SKU change referenced in the photo above is likely the cause of the missing Incredible from VZW’s site just an hour ago.

    Here elaborates the matter not only extensively but also detailly .I support the write's unique point.It is useful and benefit to your daily Most-modern.net life.You can go those sits to know more LeBron James shoes relate things.They are strongly recommended by friends.Personally

  • Jo

    I wonder if this is because Verizon and HTC probably fielded thousands of calls from Incredible owners who couldn't figure out where the SD card went. I know it took me a while of staring at the thing for a while to figure it out.

  • christephor

    so i just recently rooted my phone and i downloaded rom manager but when i opened it up it says i need to be mounted i connected the phone to the computer and pressed mount and still nothing happend can anyone help with this
    also if i have the superuser permmision that means im rooted right

    please someone help i know im a noobie but im learning

    • Hep

      I had that happen a LONG time ago when some things were different. I think that's when you have SPRecovery on the phone instead of ClockworkMod recovery, but I could be wrong. You might want to try forcing ClockworkMod Recovery on.

      • christephor

        so when i tried to flash the clockwork recovery its saying (an error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands!)

      • christephor

        how do i try forcing clockworkmod recovery on

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      Yea. Flash Clockwork Recovery (its the top option) and if you want anything besides Cyanogen then buy the premium version in the market.
      If you did all that, then take a screen shot of what it is saying that way we can better trouble shoot. I havent heard of this problem before :-/

  • lakerzz

    I have this overwhelming feeling that Kellex is off in the shadows with an evilish (is that a word?) grin, working on something that he is gonna be quite proud of, and reveal to all of us…(I hope) :P

    I could see the SD card problem. My incredible says I don't have a SD card every once in a while. I restart it and everything works fine. I can't wait to root so I can run 2.2 stock android and get rid of stupid sense. I thought I would like it but just hate it.

    • WhereIsTony

      Agreed, as neurotic as it is–I like sense– I want the option to turn it off–but I would leave it on if I had it.

    • aarynk

      you can turn sense off on the Incredible just got to applications manager and look for sense and clear defaults and then hit home. just download launcher pro or helix and there you go no sense not even any of the HTC widgets

      • http://twitter.com/ellerbestyle Ryan Ellerbe

        Yeah I am running helix and like it a lot. I hate the dialer and stuff. I was playing with a moto droid and I loved the dialer and stuff.

  • droid_fanatic

    I wanna see this small OTA that was rumored to hit the Incredible bringing the new Droid Eye Boot animation!!! I hope it wasn't just a rumor.

      Interesting……
      Like the theme, hate the wallpaper :-P
      But I will try this out. Thanks for the screenies!

      • aczm1988

        I tried it, the notification pulldown is horrible. You cant read the time or much of anything. Not the best Rom imo.

        • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

          Evil Wicked sounds like my style…I wish ROM Manager had screenies of all the ROM's :-P

    • droidroks

      What does cyanogen 5.0.7 have that bb1.0 doesn't? I like the blue.

      • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

        Stick to BB….I hear V1.1 is right around the corner ;-)

      • hawgpapa

    • skltr21

      nevermind…. i logged on and found some screen schot and posted them.

    Droid incredible = the girl version of the Droid. That HTC Sense UI is absolutely terrible. It seriously looks girly and kind of cartoony and cheap. Now of course that is just my opinion, some folks may like it. I saw that music widget and contacts widget and I'm just saying some poeple don't like the look of that. I wouldn't feel like a man using Sense UI. From what little I have seen of Motoblur, it looks just as cheesy. That stuff is not the true google experience.

    • WhereIsTony

      I really like Sense, but I understand it is not to everyone taste. That said I don't see the gender implications inherent in it. Maybe I am not insecure enough to think the menu system of my phone determines my manliness. I will work on that,

      • brandonmee

        Yeah I think that was a little far calling it out for a girl's phone. I don't care too much for Sense but there are a few features I do like. I like the screen preview and the contact widget is awesome. Just wish I could find the contact widget ported.

    • worm4603

      it amazes me how much rip on sense ui, but are always looking for mods that look like and do the same things

    • Sheed

      Really? You sound jealous more than anything. A phone that is twice as fast but similar in almost every other way is girly? Get over yourself.

    • kellex

      Interesting. Not sure why we are classifying phones as manly or girly?

      I could see if it was pink or had breasts, but I'm just not seeing how a phone with almost twice as much speed, RAM, internal memory, camera, etc. is girly?

      So is the EVO4G girly?

      Just wondering. :)

      • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

        Remember these POS's?!? My ex girlfriend had one…

      • MinoKo

        Im surprised you havent posted anything today yet. Lots of news! Motorola facebook anouncement, new pics of Droid Shadow, ect. Just sayin'. I know your a busy man :)

        • pappy53

          What Facebook announcement?

        • MinoKo

          http://phandroid.com/2010/05/26/motorola-looks-
          Its not really saying anything we havent already heard, but its something. Gives me a little more confidence that this isnt gonna turn out like the 2.1 fiasco.

        • MinoKo

          not to mention the amoled shortage for the incredible. Come on, Kelly! I need my Droid-Life fix! Im fiending. lol

      • Hep

        Funny because when I bought the Droid on the day it came out, the girl behind the Verizon store counter told me that the Droid is the man's phone and the Droid Eris is the girl's phone.

    • Victoria

      Interesting. I think the Droid Incredible is one of the manliest looking phones out there…straight out of a sci fi movie or something. I'm a lady and I wish the phone was sexier.

    • Dpry3580

      Obviously, someone didn't qualify for an upgrade and is venting instead of crying himself to sleep with his MANLY brick, I mean half an Incredible, ah, motto. Thank God I'd only had mine 29 days when Incredible came out and got to swap even, or I'd be jealous too. Sense is a great. If it's girly, why do you get every mod you can to imitate its speed and interface. Rhetorical. THIS SITE NEEDS MORE INCREDIBLE CONTENT!!! But it’s a great site.

  • aczm1988

    I have the droid, but even still i dont think its very fair they gave us a 16Gb card and they only get a 2Gb card. Yea they have 8Gb of internal storage but still :S

    • http://twitter.com/Durrock2000 Derek Weber

      Fair? I got to choose which phone I wanted, I'm sorry that others are forced to buy one they don't want.

      • aczm1988

        Nobody said anything about being “forced” to buy a phone. Im simply saying if the droid gets a 16Gb so should the incredible. Dont twist my words :S

        • http://twitter.com/Durrock2000 Derek Weber

          “Forced” was used for sarcasm not to rewrite your opinion.

  • droidroks

    Sorry this is way off topic, but I just noticed the ROM Directory above. I can't wait to see what's inside.

    • kellex

      Yep, we're hopefully changing hosting tonight, and then we should start to put that up!

      • droidroks

        You should add a little bio and how you came about droid-life. What other new things are you planning on doing to this site? Keep up the great work!

        • Chris Nimon

          I agree. I'm curious as to how going from a sort of hobby site to a polished, continually updated site has affected your job / home life.

      • ian

        are you using the new cyanogen rom 5.0.7 yet???

  • EC8CH

    Love the Droid Branding… keep it coming Big Red!

  • http://www.johnpariah.wordpress.com/ JP the Droid King

    ive had so many returns on this phone. seriously. its insane.

    first one, customer returned it the SAME DAY because the power button stopped working. it wouldnt register any clicks.

    than another customers touch screen stopped working. after it wouldnt read an SD card at all (i tried at least half a dozen SD cards too)

    then one completely died. wouldnt charge, wouldnt turn on, new battery didnt help.

    those are just the three most recent off the top of my head. :(

    • kellex

      User errors. I've not had one issue that anyone has complained of.

      • Tom

        Since I am assuming that he works at a Verizon store, I think we can assume he would hear more of problems and complaints than would you Kellex. No offense… But I doubt that you are the first person to hear “OMG! MY INCREDIBLE IS BROKED! GOING TO VWS TO GET A NEW ONE!”

        • kellex

          I'm just messin' with him cuz I know he hates the Incredible and jumps on any chance to put it down. Let's just say I got him to admit today that he would take MotoBlur on the Shadow. Yikes!

          • S8anicslayer

            My guess is that there is also going to be a droidlife boot animation

          • S8anicslayer

            Sorry a “Droid” boot animation

          • Tom

            AH Fair enough then. Though I must admit, I'm not a fan of sense nor the Incredible either… Well I'd like it better without sense… and maybe a bit of metal casing instead of plastic… A keyboard would be nice too… Droid 2? Where are you? (Hey cool! that rhymed)

          • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

            Ewww, motoblur? lol shoot me…

        • http://syntakk.blogspot.com syntakk

          Honestly, most things people complain about on the Droid or Incredible really are user error. It's rare to get a customer that actually has a device with an actual problem. Even when the phone is having problems (usually issues with force close errors), master reset almost always fixes it. Speaking from experience :)

      • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

        “User errors?” :-P

        You never know. Sometimes when things are made in such huge quantities (or lack there of), some things can get overlooked in production…
        Just saying, you never know…
        Either way; Too hell with HTC and the Sense UI :-) lol

        • http://twitter.com/TonyG916 Tony Garza

          sense is not bad…just a different flavor. love both the google experience and htc experience. Choices…now that is what makes Android special.

          • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

            I guesssssssssss :-P
            Long live the ability to make bad choices lol
            Like that time I went to Vegas for my 21st b-day…yikes…

            the country did elect obama….oh i won't get there. this is not a political forum :)

          • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

            Good idea. But just so you know, you can't expect a man to fix everything in one year that took eight to destroy :-P

          • kulz

            you guys are too funny~! hahah

    • http://syntakk.blogspot.com syntakk

      I work tech support at a VZW call center that gets first priority for the pda/smartphone/blackberry calls. Can't say we've seen many calls at all for those things. Maybe your store got a bad batch or something? I've hardly ever had to do any replacements for the Incredible or Droid.

      • blootzM3

        you can't call a call center if you're cell phone is already broken.

        • http://syntakk.blogspot.com syntakk

          …you do realize that more than one phone exists in this world, right? And most of the time stores call us for tech support anyway.

  • http://www.facebook.com/deadfrog82 Nick Olek

    Cool font know why they decided to wait so long for the droid box but my guess is they didn't want to waste money on something already made
