Gingerbread coming soon to the HTC Droid Incredible 2
It appears that the HTC Droid Incredible 2 may be the next Verizon smartphone to be graced with an Android 2.3 Gingerbread update (software version 2.18.605.4). This is according to the Verizon Support site, which now lists the update instructions and what all is to be included in the 116MB file.

Improvements include better device connectivity while roaming globally on GSM/UMTS networks, fixed Mobile IM and Hotmail sync, a new Download Manager app, power management details, better word selection and copy function, and improved stability to prevent resets and lockups. There will also be a new Wireless Charging UI, which will show the wallpaper and pop-ups when the phone is charging wirelessly, and a new Desktop Dock app.

Let us know if your HTC Droid Incredible 2 gets the update.

Good to know they are more concerned about their 3G device getting Gingerbread than their 4G device...where is it for the Thunderbolt?

Don't count on it!! You posted a similar flier regarding the Thunderbolt receiving an update which included Gingerbread. This was a month ago and so far nothing. There has not even been a follow up from Phone Arena!!

Why they don't released these phones with the latest version in the first place? Incredible 2, thunderbolt, charge, etc, etc, that's why u wanna buy a phone with latest Android version & not have to wait for updates that take forever, even more stupid is that manufacturers keep launching handsets with froyo! Why even bother?
