    Hello
    Have had a Droid Incredible for 3 months. at this point, more thumbs down than up.
    Two big issues
    1) 3G drops to 1X
    2) email app freezes/errors out with "activity mail in application mail is not responding." force close or wait are the only options, which do not resolve anything.

    email woes

    using the std droid mail app, configured with cox.net account. since i do send/receive emails from time to time, i know it is configured correctly. plus i changed password and applied it to the account on the PC and on the Droid. sent a test email to confirm.
    there are two cox email accts on the phone. the primary one is used the most and locks up/errors out with the specific error i listed. gmail is set up also, but the main use is for the calendar.

    Hmm OK so ur emails are set in My Accounts correct? Try to clear cache from ur main menu. Click Settings/Applications/Manage applications/Running. Search for ur email accts including gmail, click on it and click clear cache.
    Sometimes when a whole lot of data is coming thru, we need to free up some things on the device. U can also do that for other running apps such as games. U may wanna reboot once in awhile also.
    Hope it gets resolved

    Is apps itself that are force closing? Many apps like CNN after an update may force close. I uninstalled mine on the Xoom because the app wasn't working well with the new Honeycomb upgrade. The other option would be to factory reset

    email and other woes

    the phone just freezes almost immediately no matter what the task. apps, emails, etc. this is my second phone BTW, so we started all over. VZ bounces me to Google. Google...well no live person there. VZ now tells me i live in a dead zone for reception and this is why i drop to 1X. i am not going to spend 250 bucks for a lan booster that will make the phone allegedly work better when i am home. actually phone is home most of the time as it is hubby's.
