    Red face hey droid-ers

    Hi,

    Total newbie here. Got the Verizon Motorola Droid and am still figuring it out.
    Glad I found this site!!!

    My problems/questions/confusions for the moment:
    • What is this "root" thing?
    • Will they make an Otter Box for the Droid?
    • About this tethering... can they really tell what you're doing, since I've read that you can rack up multi gigs per month just streaming and using the droid for everything?
    • When will we have flash?
    • Why can't I upload pics?
    • Should I stop asking questions now? :P


    Okay, I'll stop... I'm not a computer newbie, as you can probably tell... just a smartphone one. And I appreciatre any help!

    Thanks y'all!

    OH NO. A GIRL!!! EVERYBODY RUN AND HIDE!!!

    But for serial...

    Rooting is hacking the phone for superuser permissions -- lets you do things the manufacturer didnt intend. I'm a big supporter of using your phone for a couple weeks before you start to mod it, so you understand how to use it and what's considered normal behavior.

    OtterBox -- Maybe, the phone has sold enough units. There are plenty of good alternatives out there

    Tether -- They cant tell, typical usage is anywhere from 1 to 10GB/month. It is techincally a violation of the ToS, so they can get you for it, but I havent heard of this happening yet.

    Flash -- We'll have it when we have it. Likely sometime this year, but who knows.

    Upload Pics -- Because you're not doing it right? You'll have to provide more detail for us to help.

    Yes, this is enough questions for one thread.

    Happy Droiding.

    I upload to picasa.. is that what you mean? Or do you mean from your droid to this site? If the later, you've got to upload to a picture site like picasa or photobucket and link the image..

    And welcome!

    Just in case you didn't know this. It's been over the forums, but OtterBox is finally selling the Commuter Case for the Motorola Droid. I just ordered one actually. Ran into this thread when I was trying to do a search for information on the product. Naturally no one has any reviews because the case just came out. If you're interested in getting one, use coupon code "TechBargains0110p" to get 10 percent off, plus free shipping. I think my total came out to be a little over 31 dollars, shipped.

    i cant make out in the pic what the otterbox looks like, but is it a full coverage case? I think I need one. I am too hard on my phones, not intentionally of course..

    sorry, didnt mean to hijack your thread. It seemed like the perfect place to ask to question
