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

    I don't know if this is normal but sometimes my phone freezes when I get a call and I have to lock/unlock phone and call the person back because it freezes. It's not all the time but enough to be a nuisance.

    Also when I go on the internet and pinch out, it goes from big to small to big to small and I can't get it to stop when I have the size I want. Again I have to lock/unlock to manipulate. I tried the double touch and it works a little better. Again is this normal and doesn't work perfectly?

    I even called Verizon to let them know and they didn't know how to help me. They seemed to think I had no issue and how the Incredible is a good phone. Maybe since this is my first smartphone, I'm not aware how it doesn't work perfectly and I need to expect some issues here and there.

    I took it to the Verizon store and they took a look at it and of course things work good while I'm there and then I walk out and have issues again. They seemed to think my phone is normal and in good working order.

    I'm just locking and unlocking to get things to work as I think they should. Anyone else?

    I just hate to return the phone for a new one (even if they will allow me since they think it's working fine) and then find out the new one has the same issues. What's are some normal issues I should expect?

    I've had my incredible for over a month and had none of those issues. never had it freeze up on me once, and on the internet and pinch zoom works amazing. I can understand your frustration, when ya spend money on something you want it to work right. Those things shouldn't be happening on a brand new phone.

    Thanks Rush. I'll go by and get a new phone. When I took it to Verizon they looked at me like I should expect some issues and they told me not any phone is perfect so I was unsure if these freezing episodes were normal.

    ETA: After doing more research, I wonder if the freezing could be due from a app. that I downloaded.

    Yay, they actually gave me a new phone.

    After they did a battery pull (which I told them I had already done a couple of times) they reset the phone and reloaded my e-mail accts, etc.

    They say sometimes a phone will get viruses just like a computer does. This is what they thought might have happened. They also suggested that if you download a virus program, not to download the program that looks like a little round bug....not sure which they were talking about.

    They were going to give the phone back to me thinking my freezing issues were fixed. I was leery that freezing issues were actually fixed but they said they'd notate in my record what they've done in case it still acts up. Then they give me a new phone.

    Well I told the girl to just go online and go to a few sites and play around for a bit and see how it does. Yay me, it froze up on her. I finally got someone to see how it freezes. Now I have a nice new fresh phone.

    I hope I have better luck with this one because I so want to like it.
