ok, got the others. Yes, that's what I meant about the gmail widget. To be able to flick through the messages.
My gmail is set up on the page where you flick through email messages. Not sure how it happened. I just was playin with the phone when i first got and typed in my gmail stuff when it asked. I love that feature. (its the page to the left of the main home screen)

does anyone know how to setup reminders on the phone? for example on my dare every 2 minutes it would vibrate if i had no checked a text msg, voicemail, missed call, etc. but the incredible just does this very light vibrate (which i barley feel) and never vibrates again. i want it setup like 2min reminders where it vibrates to let me know to check it. anyone know where i can set this up? thanks
I'm no expert on this, but yes, it sounds like android will kill the app if it runs low on resources. HOWEVER, I dont think it means it is the most power efficient. I could make an app that makes the screen always on and full brightness, constantly use data, wifi, gps, etc. It wouldn't use alot of memory but it would drain the battery.
So I would think that you would still want to kill an app that you do not need running if it constantly uses power. But if its some standalone thing that doesnt do anything, I dont think it hurts to keep it running.
For example, if you have an email app set to check email every 5 seconds, it will uses alot of power vs having it check every 5 hours. But it may not use that much memory.
I'm guessing here, so someone can correct me if I'm wrong.
Any app can do evil things to your battery and the system (if you grant permission by installing it). There is a built in task killer you can use for poorly writting programs (I would uninstall them) that eat up your battery.
Not sure if anyone posted this..but i seen the Incredible commercial last night when watching The Office/30 Rock..this is the first i've seen the phone advertised. Once again, sorry if someone posted it but i loved it.
What is everyone using for email? The Gmail Push or the HTC Mail as Exchange Active Sync? Also, if using the Exchange Active Sync, do you need to be on the higher data plan?
I'm a total smart phone newb so i dont know the difference..
I have the little mail button on the main home screen set up to my Gmail and Homail account. I can go back and forth between them. Then on the screen to the left of the Main Home page is my gmail account again where i can flick through the messages. I hope i didnt mess anything up and start getting charged more or something
ok. got the gmail thing figured out. To change from HTC mail to any other pop3 account you have to open up the htc mail, click on the window, choose other pop3 mail account, enter your gmail info and it should push right through your gmail now and have the ability to flick through your messages.
