    sorry just thought of another quick question. i have some free ringtones on my sd card from Mabilo.com and i don't know how to assign each song to a person. also my contacts list is on my backup assistance from my old phone. i sold my old phone and now i have this droid but i realized i only have 5 numbers on my phone out of 176 numbers. the verizon store told me i'd have to type them all in manually. thats is bs. is there a way i can get them from my backup assistance on my verizon into my new Droid Motorola pone???? thanks again. i have so many questions, but i'll stop myself here for now. don't want to overwhelm you. hahaha cheers!!!!

    I downloaded 2.1 this morning. Beyond the irritation of having to reload my contacts, rearrange my home screens, and overall resync everything, I now cannot set the many songs I've uploaded as ringtones.

    I'd been using Myxer.com to cut ringtones and send them to my phone via text messages. Now when I save them and play them back, I don't have the option to hit the "menu" button and "save as ringtone." This has been driving me crazy all day. I've only had my phone for a month or so and had just gotten it to be completely personalised the way I wanted, and now I have this nonsense to deal with.

    The funny thing is, 3 of my personalised ringtones appear on the ringtones menu, but the rest don't. Can anyone help???? I am a smartphone novice and so would like the most newbie-friendly explainer... thanks!!!

    **Also--I downloaded Astro file manager and re-saved my downloaded files under /sdcard/media/ringtones as others have suggested, to no avail. My phone just isn't recognizing most of my music as ringtones and it's frustrating me to no end.

    Nevermind, I called Verizon and figured it out. If you email ringtones to yourself, you have to open your email thru the browser application, then click on the file and save it. After it downloads, click on the file in the download history menu; it'll play out and allow you to select menu>Set As Ringtone. UGH. I'm not sure this update that supposedly fixed bugs I didn't have my Eris long enough to notice was worth the 24 hours of frustration and headache to get my phone back to normal. Actually, slower than normal. Not a fan.

    **I should note this worked using Gmail. Not sure if it'll work with other web-based email apps or outlook, but it definitely won't work via the gmail widget. Which makes no sense on a google phone... whatever.

    Ok i need loads of help and explanation.. My newly bought phone is stock and i have no plans in rooting it (taking in concern that rooting = jailbreaking).

    I loaded marketplace and wanted to download some themes. It mentioned that i have to have GDE installed.

    1 - how do i download GDE for my phone ?

    2 - After downloading GDE, does that mean that i can just download and use the themes?

    Thanks for the help.

    I search GDE in the market and up comes "GDE - New Home Experience" The description of the app and the developer's website is all listed there, as well as feedback by others.

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    I have totally no idea why mine does not pop up... this is so annoying... is it because of the different versions we are using? I am getting a little piss off with myself.

    Hello guys,

    Just bought a Milestone (German release - azerty keyboard) a couple of day ago and all was just fine up until a couple of hours ago.
    First i`v noticed that that my Wifi was not connecting: it showed "turning off" and that`s about it. In order to get it to work again, i have to reboot the phone. Then some randoom lockups, non-responsive touch, etc.
    Then (some 30 minutes or so after), the phone start to run REALLY slow - it turned up that I had a TON of apps running in the background, even after I just restarted the phone.
    So my fist thought was - ok, bad app installed. Just to be sure, I did a factory restore. But apparently that didn`t helped a bit. The phone is still un-usable, locking up, rebooting, and as I type I see that it entered Recovery Mode by itself ?!? (it was ON a couple of secs ago). The "Wireless & Network" section of Settings is inaccessible, and it gives me "Application Error - Activity Wireless & Network settings is not responding"
    So .. now I got stuck with a half-bricked phone and no clue on what caused this OR how to fix it.
    The phone is running 2.1, stock, non-rooted.

    Any advice on this issue will be more than greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    I'd contact those who sold you the phone. From time to time people end up with a phone that has issues and it needs to be returned. It doesn't sound like its anything you did. If the store can reproduce the issue they'll swap you out for another one.

    I have a question when I try to upload an image stored on my phone to an image hosting site, or when I tried to set an AV for this or any other forum, it says that uploading is disabled. Are there some setting I need to change on my phone?

    Red face Oh Noooo, I deleted the data in my apps on Moto Droid

    OMG! My O.C.D. got the best of me and I went and cleared all the data in most of my apps. I haven't noticed any problems but this is all so new to me so maybe I just don't know what to look for.
    Anyway's, when I go to manage apps now, there are a few listed with 0 storage, such as Android System, says 0.00B, Live Wallpaper,Google Search, Market Updater, Bluetooth Share and a few other apps.
    Can you help me please?

    Thanks a bunch!
