    Well I just got my Motorola Droid this morning and there is two things confusing me so far.

    1) Is there a way to add a contact onto your phone's contacts, without it automatically being pushed also onto your gmail account? There are contacts I need to have on my phone that I don't want to be on my gmail, such as personal numbers being transfered to my work gmail. Is there a way to stop this?

    2) How do you save a picture off of a message sent to your phone's "Messaging"? My girlfriend sent me a picture to have on my new phone and I can't figure out how to save it. Please help. >.<

    1. Turn off sync for your gmail account
    2. Long press the picture

    You can also add multiple accounts so that the one with work contacts does sync and the one with personal does nto sync. I use gmail, exchange and somehting else I don't recall but it winds up just keeping contacts local to the device. Gmail has my personal stuff and exchange has my work contacts and the third is where I keep personal stuff I don't want anyone to kno0w about <wink>.
