HTC Droid Incredible to come with a 2GB microSD card?
We have been hearing reports from people who have pre-ordered the HTC Droid Incredible after 4/24 that a 2GB microSD card is being included with the order. We checked out the Verizon site for the HTC Droid Incredible, and it now lists "Limited Introductory Offer: 2 GB MicroSD Card" under the Accessories tab. Hopefully people who have pre-ordered before 4/24 will also get the 2GB card, but if you don't, you could probably call Verizon and ask them (nicely) to send you one. Besides, a 2GB card is pretty inexpensive these days, and it's nice that Verizon is going to include one with the phone....through only for a limited time. We're waiting to hear back if standard orders placed on or after the 4/29 launch date will also include the free memory card.

Thanks to everyone for sending this in!

Frankly, with 7 GB of on board storage for applications, the 2gb card is almost a moot point. They are $10 at most stores, and probably $.10 if you search online ; )

I like the cards for picture storage, that way you pics follow your phone. Contacts and calendar sync with google sync.

Now here's my question: Where did Android Central get the idea that there was an 8gb micro SD card included? Here's the quote from their review: "To sweeten the deal, there's an extra 6.6 gigabytes of storage (which for some reason Verizon is still reporting as 8 gigs, even with a footnote explainer) that you can use for music, video, photos, whatever. (At the time of this writing, apps are still constrained to the 512MB of ROM -- more than enough for more people, but something Google has promised to address in future updates to Android.) And on top of that, Verizon's including an 8GB microSD card, and the phone can handle up to a 32GB card. You'll run out of battery long before you'll run out of music. (Side-effect: When you mount the Incredible as a disk drive, you actually see two -- one for the internal memory, and another for the microSD card.)"

LOL really?? First off this is not news, second of all The MyTouch on T-mobile comes with a 8Gb card, The Cliq and CliqXT comes with 4GB, the HD2 and Fender MyTouch a 16GB. P.S I don't care how much storage the phone has on board.

Real cheap, Verizon. If this is your supposed next "DROID" flagship phone, why did you only give a 2gb card out. The DROID comes with a 16 gig card and its your flagship phone.

"Flagship" describes a device thats suppose to "bring it on home" for a hurting cell phone manufacturer. i.e the Palm Pre was Palms "Flagship" device because it was suppose to save them tanking. Crown Jewel orHay Maker, would describe this hone just fine. I dont mean to pry I just think the term has evolved to something it isnt.

Seriously All these smartphones that are coming out with mem cards in them is not a big deal. Now for me they are just collecting dust on my night stand. I still am using the 8 gb card from my storm and have transfered it to several different devices, the tour i haves mem card is not being used and 16 gig from my droid holds all my music but i rarely switch to it cause my 8 gb from the storm card has enough music on it to keep me entertained. so when i buy this phone, its just a nother mem card im not gonna use..

I just called Verizon to confirm this and the CS rep said that she is going to check my order receipt when its ready to ship to see if the 2gb MicroSD is included and if not she is going to call me and then ship one out for free. Real nice rep as she also let me order a shell/holster combo for the Incredible that I will get tomorrow with free overnight shipping. Not that I need a 2gb MicroSD but hey if its free why not jump on it. I still got like 3 8gb MicroSD cards laying around on top of my 16gb in my Droid.

I think it's clear it does come with one from the Verizon site.

Got the new 32 GB card. just have to format the Incredible on my PC when I get it on Wednesday so it will recognize the 32 GB size since its only compatible up to 16GB. Pretty easy to do. 32 GB of removable memory plus the roughly 8GB of internal memory guarantees that i'll never run out of room for all my movies, books, etc.
