Yep... thats awesome and unusual.
I work in the medical field and I see people in there 30's that are clueless, but then I see those rare folks in thier 80's and are sharp as a tack and have a better memory than me.
Its amazing the differences.
I can almost bet you that those rare folks don't struggle day to day with a computer they can't figure out either.
Some folks are techy minded and some just aren't and either just can't think that way or won't step up to the challenge.
Some folks won't or can't change their oil and only know how to turn a key and others can take apart a transmission and put it back together without a manual.
The Second Mouse gets the Cheese!
I've been following this thread with interest. I'm "sort of" tech challenged, but I can hold my own at times. I'm probably on the upper end of the age of people on this forum and was very upset there was no user manual with the droid and essentially after shelling out 300 bucks I was told, "you are on your own."
I went into a Verizon store and the guy there was patient and showed me some things and a few other things I was able to get from this forum.
I know that this phone can do so much more than I have done, and for me, I've done a lot (for someone on my level of tech-i-ness)
My confusion comes in on setting up the themes and desktop, folders, widgets and such. I need step by step instructions to follow. Once I have that, I'm fine. Any suggestions?
I personally don't feel too out of date to have a phone like this, but details for new owners of smart phones would have been nice.
Any suggestions to assist would be much appreciated.
Hello, there is a full manual (PDF file) on both Verizon's and Motorola's web sites. I will share the link below and it will help for it has 58 pages of great information!
ya. the droid isnt for people who have no idea about computers. an iphone is much simpler to use. however, my dad has a droid and he doesnt know much about computers. he just knows how to use his phone for the like 4 things i've taught him to do. i think the droid seems obvious to use, but a lot of people probably find it difficult to use

I think the Droid, once set up is extremely easy to use. The iPhone has it own shared of issues. For example, the Iphone is proprietary, which means no memory expansion, no flash support (coming in a 2 months for the Droid), lots of great applications and more.
The PDF manual from Verizon's and or Motorola's web site is well done and explains allot of things and how to maximize the use of your Droid.
