    Is there a way to add the "direct dial" and "direct message" short cut icons on the home screen? the whole folders, not just a individuel name and number in that folder..

    What would these folders contain?

    You can create a plain "New Folder" and put direct dial and direct message shortcuts IN that folder.

    For example create a "Family" folder and place direct dial and direct message shortcuts to the members of your family.

    Is this what you are asking? Sorry if I am misinterpreting your question.

    How do you create a Family folder? I asked this on a new thread as well..I can't seem to provide a name, or rename a folder in any way. I hold the home screen, New Folder and it puts a folder called Folder on my home screen. I see no way to edit the name of it. :(

    Sorry, but what is this "Direct Dial" folder you speak of?

    The only folder options I have are: FOlder, All Contacts, BT Received, Contacts w/ Phone #'s, Facebook Phonebook, My Stations, Starred Contacts

    Oh I believe you need to do direct dial contacts one at a time into that folder. I don't think there is a way to do multiple direct dial contacts at once.

    I believe ALL pictures are stored onto the SD card.

    If you remove the SD card and try to take a picture it alerts you to put in an SD card to use the camera, well at least it did on my G1.

    Camera pictures = pictures taken with camera
    Camera media = both pictures + video taken with camera

    No problem -- I have had a G1 since last October so I know the Android operating system pretty well. I feel I should give back after all that was given to me on other forums.

    BTW yes I am a dude. :icon_ banana:
