    How to prepare for my Droid?

    Hello all,
    Tomorrow I get my Motorola Droid in the mail. I have been searching the whole internet about how to prepare for the droid. I am google everything user, but I am going to question in a very general sense so others can reference the information. I personally plan on using this device as everything.

    How should one prepare for a Droid phone before receiving it to make the switch as seamless as possible (contacts, music, videos, must have apps...)?

    As for contacts, I was on a mac, so I exported my whole Address Book as Vcards and just dragged it into the SD Card. I think this works with outlook as well.

    I was already using Gcal on my BlackBerry & I'm a Mac user too. I uploaded all my contacts into Mac Address book and then exported them as 1 large vcard. I then uploaded the vcard to Google Contacts (which was seamless BTW) and when I got the Droid set up, it synced everything automatically!

    Ok. I already imported all of contacts into gmail.

    For all you new people.
    1. Export your contacts (Outlook, Verizon Backup Assistant, Yahoo, etc) to vCard or .csv file
    2. Log on to gmail.com with your user name and password
    3. On the left hand side click Contacts
    4. In the top left hand corner, click import.
    5. Import your vCard or .csv file

    You might have to merge some contacts together. Just checked 2 or more contacts, click Merge These x Contacts, Review the information and click OK.

    So what about music. How did you guys convert, import, and then play all of your music on the droid? I use iTunes, and assume most people do.

    iTunes!!! AHHHH! . It's drag and drop to the SD card. You'll get a notification on your Droid when you plug in your USB and you'll "mount" the SD card and from there it's drag/drop. I actually am not sure if the DROID can play the iTunes format. But I'm sure there's an App for it.

    and there is... nuTsie iTunes Music Player v1.1.0 Application for Android | Multimedia

    Enjoy your DROID!
