I am still trying to get to know my new Droid (not Eris) but am having quite a bit of difficulty and am really considering trading it back for a Blackberry. The apps are great but this is a business phone and I have to be able to conduct my work-related tasks on this phone, preferably with ease.
The user experience for me so far has been just full of frustration. I am hoping this is simply because I'm not familiar with how this phone works and not that it's missing features/abilities that I really need for my job. I am wondering if there is any way to accomplish the following tasks:
1 - Get all email to show up in one box?
There is no way to know who is sending you email unless you drag the notification menu down to see which account got the email. I have shortcuts for the 5 accounts I have on the homescreen but they don't show any indicator that the new mail is in that box nor is there an option to have all mail show up in a single mailbox. It's such an incredible waste of time to have to either click on each of the 5 mailboxes to see where the new mail is or drag the list down from the top. I just can't get over what a silly thing to have to do.
2 - There is no way to know if you've replied to a message.
On my Blackberry, if I replied to an email, the icon next to the message in my Inbox had an arrow on it. The Droid has nothing and the message does not appear in the Sent Items folder. My job is extremely email intensive and remembering if I've replied to a message is difficult to say the least.
3 - Check for mail every 5 minutes.
Is there any way to force check email sooner than 5 minutes? That seems an eternity to me. I've tried sending myself an email and manually clicking Refresh on the mailbox page but it doesn't seem to pull the new messages. Not sure exactly what it refreshes. Also, occasionally, I get the "DROID!" sound notification that is set to my New Mail notification but when I check all the mailboxes there is nothing in them.
4 - When the screen goes to sleep, hitting the Home button or any other doesn't bring the phone back on. You have to press the Power button. Is that
I've been reading threads here this morning and appreciate all the info here!
