For those who were experiencing problems with the Droid Incredible since the Android Froyo 2.2 update, you’ll be excited to know that an update is on the way to address those problems. The OTA update will begin rolling out to users next week. Check out the list below or the image above to see everything that will be included in the update:

+ Updated Flash® player includes security enhancements.
+ Visual Voice Mail Wi-Fi improvements include removal of incorrect service messages and post-call notifications.
+ Enhanced support for Yahoo!® IMAP email.
+ Updated Slacker application.
+ Attach files larger than 5 MB.
+ Updated COX POP3 email settings.
+ Play YouTube videos in YouTube application.

+ Updated Comcast POP3 email settings.
+ Search key and other buttons displayed in correct order.

+ Preinstalled V CAST Apps lets users purchase applications directly from their devices and bill them to a Verizon Wireless account.

If you noticed, the enhancement is the VCAST App Store. The Droid Incredible will be the first VZW device to receive this store. Here is the official statement from Verizon Wireless:

“Verizon Wireless will begin pushing a software update to the DROID Incredible next week. The update includes software enhancements that will pre-install V CAST Apps on the phone. We said earlier this year that we’d be expanding V CAST Apps to the Android platform, and the DROID Incredible is the first Android phone with the store. Developers continue to submit apps, and as a reminder, V CAST Apps allows carrier billing, so customers who purchase applications through our store will see those charges on their monthly bill. For more information about the update customers can go to www.verizonwireless.com/droidincrediblesupport.”

If you can’t wait for the update, you can visit XDA Forums and do the update manually. So Droid Incredible users, are you excited? Hit up the comments and tell us what you think! Is there anything missing from this update that you wanted?
