1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Had a weird Monday. Got my Inc on release day, have loved it from the start. No problems at all. Then on Monday (5/10) the thing starts lagging. Every aspect. Opening apps, using keyboard or joystick, pinch; you name it, it was slow.

    I got it at Best Buy and had every intention of going in today and having them look at it. I am a total non tech person. This morning I get up and battery is completely dead. Shouldn't be, device was plugged in most of Mon evening. I plug in and turn on and voila! everything is running normally.

    Any thoughts? Pleased it is working now, but should I worry it will happen again? I am in love with this phone, but if there is a problem would like to address it sooner rather than later.

    A good reboot will solve most issues!

    It was weird today for me too....

    I had received a few picture messages from my friend and somehow those multimedia messages made my droid lag enough for me to notice. Yes, I only had the DI for a few days, and definitely got used to how fast it was, so a small lag, I noticed.... Anyrate, it bothered me with that lag, so I deleted those picture texts, and cleared out my cache on the internet, then did a soft reboot (same as listed above) and things went back to normal...


    Oh btw, what was the official release date of the Incredible?
    I got mine a few days ago
