    Help! Droid incredible in boot loop

    Hey everyone,
    my mom has a droid incredible. she emails me saying it just keeps rebooting.
    I got the phone from her and can not get it to stop. The phone has never been rooted. After a battery pull it will sit there with the red notification light on. if i try to power it on it goes into the loop.
    any ideas?

    She probably tried to do an update on a low battery and it was half way there. Did you try pulling the sd card? Try that... are there any sbf files for your phone? Idk cause I'm a moto droid so I wouldn't know...

    Just do a factory restore and be done with it.

    Hopefully she has a Google Acct and has all her contact info sync'd so she can retrieve that info after resetting. This should leave any info on the SD card untouched, so you're safe there.

    Pull battery so the phone will be completely off with no rebooting.
    Hold the "Volume Down" button down and then press power. Once the screen loads you'll see a white screen with print and some options. Choose Factory Reset and just follow the self-explanatory steps.

    Once the process is finished the phone should look like it did when you first bought it. Enter in all your Google Acct info, get it all resync'd, then hop on your PC/Mac/Linux box. Now you can go to the Android Market, log her into her Google Acct, and click the "My Market Account" link at the top. That will give you a list of her most recently installed apps (including purchased apps...you don't have to re-buy them). Once there, start clicking on the Apps you want to reinstall and choose the "Install" option. If it says "INSTALLED" click it anyway to re-install it. If she is logged into her Google Acct on the phone, then her DInc will start downloading the app without her having to do all the searching on the phone itself. Save ya about 2hrs of searching.

    Good luck, li'l homie!

    Angry DInc's BOOT LOOP of DEATH SUCKS & I'VE HAD IT!!!!!

    doing a factory reset isn't doing jack anything. it's just resetting your phone so that you lose everything and have to do everything over that just took a month or more to set up and once again by the time you finish setting this one up it will crap out again just like it did before and then you have to go through the same bs again!!!! i've gone through it 3 times now and i'm done. i don't have the time or patience to deal with this every couple months and no matter what i try to do i still seem to end up losing things. maybe if i had someone that knew ANYTHING about these phones they could show me what to do and then i wouldn't lose my stuff and it would be easy but there's nobody around here that knows how to even pick their noses let alone fix phones/computers!!! it really sucks and verizon needs to do something for me other than trying to give me another one of these POS phones!!! cuz i hate it & that's not gonna solve the problem!!!!!

    Because just like so many others before him he can't figure out how to use his Incredible so he registers here to gripe and complain. He has no interest I'n figuring out what's wrong with the phone or more likely why he is making user errors. He just wants to complain.
