    Hi gang, I catapulted from a moto Z6c global to a droid2 global last week. While trying to get me head around this new device and I kept finding useful nuggets on this forum.

    I'm not a total eejut, but I'm not a software engineer either; but I'm enticed by the possibilities a fully customizable multi-tasking device that fits in my pocket.

    I've already found one or two apps that suit my usage. I will be much more comfortable once I understand the basic nuts-and bolts of the OS so I can optimise its performance, and maybe avoid rooting it if it's not necessary.
    Till then, I'll try not to scratch a bald spot onto my head.

    hey there, thanks for chiming in.
    I'm not using VZ visual vm.
    (this should probably get moved over to http://www.droidforums.net/forum/dr...settings-pre-installed-voicemail-app-d2g.html)

    I noticed on VZW's HTC devices running 2.2 that each stock messaging app to has it's own notification settings and preferences, but not with the Motorola.

    I've been with VZ for a few years and they have in the past had fairly consistent firmware across all their phones...it seems that a very common function has been overlooked in the D2/D2g user interface.
