Hi all! I've had my Motorola Droid for four days now, and of course it's rarely left my hand. This is my first smartphone, and so far it's everything I hoped for. I never liked Blackberries and I refused to leave Verizon for the iPhone, and to be honest, wasn't interested in settling for a smartphone that was less than what I determined I needed.
The Droid OS takes a little getting used to, and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions that will be answered hereabouts. In the meantime, I do have a two part introductory question for all of you wiser, more experienced users -- which should be just about everyone, I guess. I had done a TON of research on the phone and all the best, greatest hits apps I needed to get started. I've mastered customized and assigned ringtones, syncing, background and other setup stuff. Among the apps I immediately installed was Advanced Task Killer - free edition. It does a great job, but I notice that certain apps keep opening themselves repeatedly, and have to be killed again. This is annoying.
First question: How can I keep things like the corporate calendar (which I don't use) and its pesky brethren from turning themselves back on and sucking down memory and battery life?
Second question: Can I delete (or permanently hide) standard installed stuff that I never plan to use (like the Corporate calendar, the standard, installed Verizon ringtones that I will never EVER use) and other apps that are just taking up valuable real estate?
