    Going through withdrawl right now as I start on this Droid, been with Blackberry for so long and did not think I would change. But here I am with this Droid 2 Global.
    I can't say anything bad about Blackberry so don't ask or look for it.
    This is something new and have to adjust to the changes instore for me.

    :welcome: aboard!

    Little tip to make your Droid experience that much better... You don't need (and should uninstall since there's a very good chance a Verizon employee saddled you with) a task killer. Task killers are BAD NEWS for Android phones. :)

    Always check for a quit or exit or logout option, but if there isn't one then it usually closes when you back out of it.

    Oh, hitting back is better than hitting the home button because the home button "assumes" you want to go back to the app so it keeps it running for a while.

    Very much so. If you hit home you will return to the page you were on when you load it back up. If you back out it'll return to the start page.

    Allot of relearning. Glad I got the basics at least.

    Ok, I am use to having a desktop manager when I was with Blackberry. So I naturally assumed that Droid would be the same since it came with cable hook up. Did I miss something there cause I dont see one for Droid.

    lol..it is a Blackberry program to load on your main computer to download or delet things and do your cell back up on.
    Whenever you plug in to your usb it connects you automatic and transfers info.
    I dont see that with this cell.

    Isn't there an option to enable PC mode? Or just to mount the SD card?
