    Droid X pre purchase prep

    So I'll be there at 8:00am when the store opens (I have an appointment at 8:00am). Get the phone, maybe buy some accessories, then out the door and play!

    What prep items can I do before I buy the Droid X so that my transition to a smartphone is enjoyable?

    Some things I have done so far:
    I have spent a LOT of time on these forums, youtube, other sites learning about Droid OS, apps, etc.
    Setup gmail account.
    Added all my contacts (cleaned / purged) to gmail.

    What else?

    Did you take care of your calendar? Set up Google calendar if you haven't already.

    Adding your contacts to gmail is key. Will keep you from having to program them in later

    Hendrix - good answers.

    Basically you have to export from what you're using and then import into Gmail.

    Forgot to mention that I had made a mental list of the apps I was going to download after I left the store....

    Handcent
    File manager - Astro?
    RingDroid - does everyone assign a diff ringtone to thier frequent contacts?
    LauncherPro - seems like most use this....
    FancyWidgets - free version like Beautiful Widgets

    Suggestions.....
