Welcome merlin....it is a great device.
Since this is your first smartphone and you picked a heck of device to start off with : ) do visit the FAQ section.
There is a ton of great info in there.
I'm telling you know the data base is huge here and it will get overwhelming but hang in there. Search the forums using the search function and ask questions if you can't find what you are looking for.
The members here are great and will help you out any way they can.
Good luck and welcome aboard.
