BlueTansy says Hi
Introducing myself: I'm BlueTansy, and I have an LG Android Vortex with Verizon. I got it two days ago after having various :palm: devices for the last 5 years. I really wanted an internet-based system rather than being tethered to a particular PC, so that was why this device was attractive to me. However, now I'm thinking about security, and wondering if there is some app that provides the ability to remotely wipe my Vortex if I lose it or it is stolen:confused:. So I am actively looking for that, and discovered this forum; thought it was a good place to be :smile:
Hey, I guess this is the right place. Just posting an intro.
I've had my Motorola Droid for about 7 months and I love it. Its rooted and I'm hoping to further explore its capabilities as I expand my knowledge of IT and computer science in school.
I'm particularly interested in opening the phone up so that I can access zip files and the like that various sources often install rather than straight downloads. Any suggestions on this would be appreciated.
Glad to be here.
Kind of forgot to introduce myself, long time BlackBerry user 5+ years found a droid on CL for $100 and haven't looked back. Rooted UD3.0 with slayer 1200.
I've had my Droid X for a week now (replaced my :blackberry:) and I'm having SO much fun deciding what apps and widgets I need and how to get them where I want them. :happy:
Looking forward to learning a lot from all of you!! dancedroid
Hey all, names Kevin! Just received my Droid2 on Tuesday and Im loving it so far.
Ive already rooted it and installed Squidly in it too.
Kinda of a nerd when it comes to technology so I may ask a lot of questions when it comes to how to install certain things and how to do certain things.
Happy to be here.
Hi everyone. User name is Elftal and this is the first forum i've ever joined!!
35 years old from Melbourne, Australia. Was a long time Symbian user then
picked up an LG Optimus One P500 on a re-contract a few months ago.
Figured out i really love what Android does. Played around a bit then figured
out i needed more. More memory, more processor and more screen. Did some
research and thanked God Motorola mad a global phone that fit my criteria
so I jumped on Ebay and am now impatiently waiting for my D2G to arrive.
What else? I enjoy building and tinkering with PC's, Home theatre just tech
and gadgets in general. Also love building projects round the house. I suppose
getting hands on with pretty much anything, I will always give it a go.
Hope thats not too long winded, I look forward to being a part of the droidforums community :greendroid:

Found this forum while Googling for "Droid acronyms". My head is swimming with all the new jargon - and I'm no stranger to TLA's*.
Good thread for week-old-Droid users as myself, new to the Android OS tech, here:
I haven't found these yet:
OTA ........... possibly, I dunno? Original-sump'n-sump'n
FC .............. often found in threads relating to restoring, possibly File Corruption?
* And so I'm not contributing to the problem, this stands for Three Letter Acronym, defined as "a common behavior or communications style among like-thinking individuals or groups, often looked upon as a disease, or genetic defect, by those who do not grasp nor understand this communications methodology."
Actually, that may or may not be the true definition for the acronym, as I just made it up. :)
...so, where do I tag this thread?
Good afternoon, fellow Droids.... I purchased my Droid 2 Global a couple days after Christmas. It's the very first smart phone I've owned. I upgraded from a Samsung slider phone that wasn't even built for texting, no texting keyboard, but numbers with letters. SO, this is a huge huge upgrade for me. I've read some of the forums to try and find answers I have (most notably the very humble desire to personalize ringtones to certain people, which I can't do), and I've been reading what seems to be a foreign language. It's very sad, since I used to be a programmer in my former life. However, I do pick things up very quickly, and I'm good at becomming a self-taught expert when I have the desire to do so.
Rooting my Droid? No clue what that means or how or if I need to do it. Lots to learn. Looking forward to learning how to make my little awesome droid work well for me. Thanks for letting me introduce myself! :greendroid:
If this is your first Android phone be prepared to be blown away like I was coming from an LG Dare.
First of all check out the top 30 app list.
Then read some articles about using task killers vs. not. (There is a really good one out there by the developers of Android as to why you should NOT use them)
Then I would get Launcher Pro Plus because it's BA and then just sit back and enjoy the amazing prowess that is Android.
I'm still learning but feel free to PM if you have questions.
I might be embarrassed to tell you just how much time I've "wasted" finding and d/l'ing apps, but... sounds like you would understand!
Coming from the :blackberry: Storm, which is not a bad device at all, but... this X machine is unreal. One week old today...
Agree about a launcher - it's already time to categorize all the apps. What's cool, too... been looking for a link to d/l Swype... it's already on the X! Just not in the Apps; it's in Settings. But you knew that....
Look for a PM, and we'll compare notes.
