Hi, name is Kris. Had a BB Storm, which at first was fine, but had started to hang and get "uncaught errors," which drove me up a wall until I broke it on New Year's Eve. When it worked, it worked well, but my patience was stretched way too thin and it wasn't even fun. sadisor, a "fellow" BB Storm. Glad you had better experience!
Got the Incredible last week at Target. $30 trade in for my other phone, and a reduction in my data plan AND a much better phone to boot (also, the Incredible has the same charger as the BB and my husbands LG ENV2 - score!!).
Anyway, it's been a week of trying out the phone and LOVE it so far. The guy at Target downloaded Advanced App Killer, but have since downloaded another app killer and battery saver, which has helped immensely.
Love that I can use it as wi-fi, too.
A few things:
1. This morning my phone wouldn't turn on, and the battery wasn't even dead. ???
2. The keyboard doesn't seem to turn when I turn my phone into landscape mode
3. Saving photos: where do they go? They aren't in the gallery or on my SD card.
Oh, and one more thing, how do I add smileys to my messages/texts?
Anyway, having fun downloading apps. I have an iPad for my Apple fix!
If you have an Android phone you need to go read the article by the Android Developers about Task Killers and why you should not use them.

Here's the videos why not to use task killers; think its one of those hotly debated topics.

Hello Everyone, My name is KRMN, and I am new to the Droid Community, I have a Droid 2 and unfortunatelly is stuck on the M but if I dont touch it it starts looping in to the Avalon boot... yes I thought the avalon was for the Droid 2 but found out the wrong way it wasn't... I would apreciate any help I can get...
Anyways... previously to the Droid 2 I had the original droid but my ex is the one that did all the rooting and stuff and with this one I decided to do it myself and now I am learning through trial and error...
Nice meeting you all!
Hello people! I've been lurking around for a couple of days and decided it was time to register. I currently have the Htc Desire and found this site while looking for a custom rom. I'm fairly new at this so i may have a few questions down the road, i'll try to keep the stupid questions to a minimum... I have tried the cyanogen 6.1 and after fighting with the flaky gps i decided to give UD a try.
