    No Access to Settings (Incredible 2)

    I was recently removing apps from my HTC Incredible 2. Somehow the settings app was removed. Now when ever I try to access settings, either via apps>settings or from the home screen menu>settings I get the error "The linked program is no longer installed on your phone." The phone works fine otherwise.

    I have tried numerous soft resets to no avail, and cannot find anywhere that offers the settings as a download.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on where to go from here? As I understand it, to perform a hard reset (which would be my next option) I have to have acces to settings... which I don't.

    resets wont help bc it wasnt a user app. you need to take the system dump and find the settings apk and reinstall it with the right permissions

    If you call verizon tech support, they will probably send you a replacement. Apparantly it's a software issue.
