    My Droid came early and now I need help figuring this out :o)

    So my Droid wasnt supposed to arrive until tonight at the earliest but it arrived yesterday. I am super excited, but had plans last night and wasnt able to explore the phone at all other than to set up my e-mail and input contacts...

    Here are some things that are already driving me crazy that I need to change the settings to: (Please HELP!!)

    *After not touching my screen for like 15 seconds it goes blank. If I try to press the screen at all to go back to the home screen it wont let me. The only way I can is by sliding out the keyboard and unlocking it. This bothers me. So:
    1. How can I change the setting so it doesnt do it after approx. 15 seconds?
    2. Other than sliding out my keyboard how do I get back to the screen?

    *How can I change the font?

    *How do I change it so my phone vibrates whenever I get a text or email?

    *I feel like my contacts are too synced with Facebook. I want their pictures and thats it basically, are there levels to how much syncing you cna do?

    *I can't figure out how to compose a text. I have my friends phone number in my phone but when I put her name in the message box it does not come up...what am I doing wrong?

    I know these are all pretty basic questions but the guide it came with was no help, and as everyone told me, this phone is very different than a BB Storm!

    If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it!

    1. Download Screebl. It will keep your screen from going blank. Why are you touching it for 15 seconds, that doesn't make sense?

    2. Answered by #1

    3. Go to your settings/accounts & sync and turn facebook off.

    4. Well, actually 3. You can't change the font. That's a frequent complaint.

    5. You should just type in your friends name and it should pop up as your typing it for you to select. Make sure you have her phone number listed as mobil. If it isn't mobil, it won't come up for texting.

    6. Forget everything you ever new about Blackberry. You are right, this is a totally different phone. Do not worry about app memory or battery pulls. That should not be necessary.

    Edit: I missed the phone vibration. In messaging tap menu/settings/notifications/vibrate.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you both for your help! This is probably the stupidest question of all, but how do you turn the phone off?

    hookbill.. I'm not touching the screen for 15 seconds, I mean if I don't touch it for 15 seconds it will go off. I downloaded sceebl but cant seem to set it so the screen does not go blank. Did I need to download the upgraded verison? I just got the light version. Also, how do you delete downloads?

    Tapping the power button will turn the screen on if that's what you're looking for.

    Scroll thru the settings menu and tinker around a little then you will see all the different ways to change the factory settings also in most apps when you hit the menu button it will give you an option for settings these are different settings menus that are helpful to play with if you have anymore questions feel free to ask here we can help you
