    Well I just got off the phone with the Verizon Tech and he says, Google just finished and released the 2.2 update for the Incredible last week, the problem is that it has to be tested, so this means we will not get it until late August or early September. :icon_eek:

    I just saw this

    HTC DROID Incredible to be updated to Froyo end of July, early August

    We just received a juicy tip about the HTC DROID Incredible software update schedule that we’d like to share. One of our strategically placed Ninjas was kind enough to pass along an email from HTC that read as follows:
    I wanted to pass along that the upcoming Incredible MR will also include Froyo (originally it was going to be two separate MRs).
    We are targeting the end of the month/first part of August. As a reminder, below are the highlights:
    • Froyo
    • 802.11 n
    • 3G Mobile Hot Spot
    • HTC Widget: Email
    • HTC Widget: News
    • EAS Updates
    • 720p Video Recording
    • Amazon MP3
    • Skype
    • My Verizon
    Obviously, the news here is that the Incredible update that began rolling out this weekend will — in all likelihood — be halted, and a sexier, Froyo-inclusive update will be pushed out in the coming weeks. The update will also include 802.11n Wi-Fi support, 3G Mobile Hot Spot, 720p video recording, and more. Not bad news for Incredible owners. What do you think? Is Android 2.2 worth an extra few weeks of waiting?

    Battery? Whatever, it is what it is. Buy a spare. If you're rooted you won't be able to accept the upgrade unless you go back to stock. I won't get excited because rumors are all over the place but, would love to see this update together...

    From what I understand yes.

    I think I would not root even if we could. I like it just the way it is.

    Technically if rooted you will not get the update from VZW. But within days if not hours you'll have a better version of it. I have never used a VZW update with the last 3-4 yrs in cell phone use. I find them to be garbage.

    20 bucks?!

    I just found out Verizon will charge $20 a month for using the 3G Mobile Hot Spot, with a 2GB limit. That sucks. I think I'll not be using that feature. :(

    YES! Last night I was trying to check voice mail and when I pulled up the keypad to enter my passcode, the screen kept disappearing. I like the fact that it automatically dims the display when you put it up to your face to talk, but this was annoying.

    Any remedy?

    Absolutely, rooted you have some options. As far as your statement updates being garbage, I believe you may be a little off when it comes to this froyo update. I'm sure you realize that. For those who aren't going to root this froyo update is going to be a big upgrade.
