    I'm a little slow to change but finally made the leap and ditched the Blackberry Bold after it bricked up for the third time and was told it was out of Warranty. I picked up a Verizon Samsung Galaxy 3 and I am off to a new start. Looking forward to picking up tips and tricks.

    Welcome, Jiminny. The change may be a little frustrating at first, but as you get things figured out a whole new world will open up to you!

    (and BTW, you should get rid of that Betamax and get yourself one of those new DVD thingies!)

    The keyboard is a bit difficult to get used to but I picked up SwiftKey 3 and that's been a big help. Still trying to figure out how to set up security and recovery in case of lost or dead phone.
