It has been about three years since my first Droid. Yesterday, I took the leap of faith and retired my Blackberry with the purchase of the Razr Maxx. After spending a great deal of time into the wee hours of the morning, I am having some flashbacks to why I gave up the first Droid.
Email. I have an imap account set up through GoDaddy. It is my primary email account. Needless to say, that all email on that account should be "pushed". However in order to get the mail on the phone, I have to go into email and then hit the sync button to get everything to download. What are the proper settings for the emails to automatically download with notifications? I know that it sounds basic, but I must have set something wrong.
I have seen various discussions about "bloatware" for all of the "wonderful" apps that come pre-installed. I am not looking to start "rooting" or doing anything that might impact my warranty after less than 24 hours of ownership, however what can be done to at least park these apps elsewhere.
If I want the "Facebook" photos to not show up on my menus, can I make that go away as well?
Which forum would be the most appropriate one to post further questions about the "getting started stuff" as I go along. I want to make this a positive experience and I want to stop listening to the "shoulda got an iphone" comments.
