    A few starter questions

    First can you turn the touch screen off when you are on the phone? If so, how? Is there any way to adjust the sensitivity of the touch screen? How in the world can I delete, not just move, but delete apps that was part of the phone when I got it, blockbuster, etc? What are the apps that we are mostly helpful downloaded for the droid 2? I have the handcent, which is AWESOME! But is there any others. I do a lot of music, pics, texting. Thanks a bunch! BTW: this is my first droid of any kind!!!

    Thats alot of questions. The apps that came on the phone you cant remove until you root (jailbreak) your phone

    The proximity sensor will turn off the screen when its close to your face but I don't think you can change the sensitivity of the screen. You can remove the stock apps with rooting. Check out the market for the top downloaded apps to get you started

    Welcome to the Forum and Congrats on your first Droid, the phone has a tilt sensor built in that should turn the screen off whil it is held to your face, there is also screebl in the Market that betters this experience, as far as the preinstalled apps you are stuck with them unless you Root your device and then you could delete them, although Rooting and the D2 is a very new thing


    Any other questions feel free to ask, this forum is full of information

    the senors already on your phone you dont have to download anything.

    i was saying just check out the market to find some of the top rated apps and give them a try. most of them are free

    Yeah Root isnt an app either. Its a process you do to unlock your phone. Ive never done it so I cant tell ya how to do it.
