The DROID Incredible has remained without Gingerbread while its successor, the Incredible 2, has had it for well over a month. A Verizon support rep is now claiming that the Incredible's long awaited Ginger-bump has been put on hold pending final approval from Verizon's product team - which basically translates to: we're not happy with it yet.


It could be a single bug, or wider user experience problems. This means the delay may last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks - or more. We'll keep you updated if more information develops, but for now, your guess on a date is as good as ours.

    Couldn't wait any longer for Verizon, very happy that I rooted and upgraded to CyanogenMod. Its been 2 weeks since I rooted with Unrevoked. Much better battery life and more stable than the stock Incredible.

    What a shock. First the droid 2 global and now the incredible. Verizon is trying to force good hardware into obsolescence so we upgrade. And then they wonder why we root and rom our phones

    Verizon is the worst carrier with upgrades my thunderbolt doesn't have gingerbread yet but the stupid echo from Sprint does ? Man this is a slap to the face

  • slavs06

    very disappointing. why get everyone excited and then pull this. makes no sense we have waited this long why not get all ducks in a row then release

    Surprise surprise, for those still waiting for the gingerbread update, just root the phone already and run cm7, miui or whatever and enjoy the latest taste of gingerbread
