    Well hello everyone. Hmmmm, what to say, what to say .....
    I have been a BB users for about 3 years and thought I had found the end all of mobile phones. I thought I would have one forever. But the browser on the Droid just kept calling to me. I made the switch to a Droid today and have been online finding forums and web sites to try and learn from. So far I really like this phone, but time will tell if I miss my BB too much and have to go back. It will take some getting use to and some time to get familiar with everything, but I will give it a fair chance.
    If you got any helpful tips or suggestions for the best Droid info, I am all ears ....

    Not sure which BB you had, but there are many of us who came from BB and I can tell you that after 3 years of an assortment of BB phones (Storm was the last), that nothing stands up to the Moto Droid for me. I think you'll feel the same way soon enough. And, glad you found DF. Lots of good info here and great people to answer questions.

    Thanks Vulcan .... I am a Victory Jackpot rider myself. Just in the few hours hours I have had it, I have found loads of cool stuff. Switching my Outlook calendar to Google was easy enough, but unless I am missing something, I havent found a way to easily move my contacts. I am retyping the all in Gmail but I am on like # 40 of 78 so I took a break from it. After all the setup stuff is done, I will be able to give it a fair assesment, but it looks very promising so far.
