    So recently exchanged mt LG Ally back after the 2.1 software was causing issues nand what not for my VZW ugraded phone so 3 days later i asked if they had any Droid 2's. Paid like $200 extra for it and never looked back on it. Had it for bout 5 days now.

    Got a hard rubber case and screen protectors for it. And the apps or downloaded stuff i have are....

    >Adobe Flash 10.1
    >Advandced Task Killer
    >Air Horn
    >AndroNotes
    >Barcode Scanner
    >Ringdroid
    >Coupons
    >Fbook
    >My Verizon
    >Paper Toss
    >ScoreCenter
    >Shopper
    >The Weather Channel


    Phone is running like a champ and i tried the whole USB thing for the ringtones and got confused so i used ringdroid and it works awsome.

    Welcome to the Android World! :)

    If you have any questions there are a ton of people willing to help!
    Read up on the rules and check out the search button before you
    ask a question. A lot of us have gone through your problem before
    you have ;)

    Further more,
    You should delete/uninstall the Task Killer, It does more harm than good.
    The Android Operating System has a built in task killer and having
    a 3rd party one creates conflict draining your battery.
    This has been brought fourth from Google developers themselves.
    There is a thread with a video around here somewhere that will tell you
    all about it.

    When my gf is sleepin I use the airhorn to wake her up lol! I turn the media
    volume up by going into the dial screen without making any noise first... lol :)

    HAVE FUN! :)

    :welcome: I am glad someone else has explained the negative effects of a Task Killer on the system of your device, as most here would agree, you should uninstall it :)

    thanks guys, i just uninstalled the task killer. My day is a 630-330 then phone stays off charger till bout 11-12 and im down to bout 20% battery at this point with calls and txting so its decent but yah.



    Also i made a thread bout the USB MOUNT on these phones. When i connect my droid 2 i dont get an option to MOUNT it i get 4 other options. PC ONLY, WINDOWS MOBILE SYNC, USB MASS STORAGE, and CHARGE ONLY.

    Cool im a pretty chill dude never argue or anything and just basically say dont do it if i think its bad or what not. Just help and learn like my car forum.

    But on topic, i deff love the droid 2, my buddy got the HTC EVO from sprint and even tho it has a kickstand and larger screen i still think the Droids are better phones and VZW has the best service IMO.

    We have them all here, Moto, HTC, Samsung, personally I choose Motorola but the EVO is a nice device, if your buddy isn't on the forum yet you should let him know :)

    Yah the Droid's looks sturdier the others and VZW offers all the droids to. And hes not a big computer guy especially phone forums, but i can let him know see if hell come on.
