Well...Safe to say I'm not a NEW member...But I never did this, so here it goes.
My name is Jon. I was born and raised in Kansas, but visited Michigan's Upper Peninsula [The U.P.] every year growing up because my mom is from the area.
I was laid-off from the aircraft industry in February, and my grandpa wasn't doing well this summer, so I made the decision to move to the U.P. to help my grandma take care of him. He passed in November, but helping out with him made me realize how much I enjoy helping others, especially those who've done so much to pave the way for young punks like myself, so I took a course to become a Certified Nurse Assistant [CNA], and am now employed at an Assisted Living center 5 minutes from where I live.
My experience with Android: I bought T-mobile's G1 shortly after it first came out, and fell in love with the OS. The phone wasn't QUITE what I imagined, but it served me just fine until I moved here where T-mobile doesn't offer service.
As well as not wanting to roam endlessly on AT&T, I wanted a local number to make finding a job easier and so grandma didn't have to call long distance.
I signed up with Alltel and used an LG Triton for a few months, and missed my little Android like no one's business. I don't watch much TV, so didn't realize that the Droid ran Android, and Verizon wasn't available up here until the switch.
I live with 2 of my cousins next door to grandma, and we decided it'd be easiest for them to join my plan since we already split bills.
I wasn't going to get a new phone until the rep brought out another employee's Droid. As soon as I saw the Android lock-screen, I knew I had to have it.
The rest, is history.
This is getting pretty long-winded, so thanks if you've read at least half of it. Just wanted to let people know that I'm coming from a bit of Android experience [as opposed to others who're having their first experience with it on the Droid] and look forward to helping newer users out!
As well, I'm currently learning more about Java, and hope to someday try my hand at developing Android apps.
I've found a LOT of useful info on this forum, and do my best to help answer questions I've already seen the answer to. I hope my words help any of you
I work midnights, and so I've been up since yesterday evening, so maybe a better title for this post would be "Self-indulgence..." Haha!
