Hi all. I am new to Droid (as of today) and very new to this forum, as well, so sorry if I'm repeating typical annoying questions. First off, my brother warned me about the data/battery usage and told me to get the task killer, which I did... but more open up right away, why is that? is it normal? He also said his Droid won't fully charge unless it's hooked up to a PC, normal? Also, I have tried numerous times to set up my standard google email account. I keep getting errors, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong? And, on the Facebook app, when I tried to view my notifications I get an error every time saying; "cannot retrieve notifications. Please try again later"... I suppose this could be a Facebook error? And lastly, I just want to make sure I'm thinking about this correctly.. my brother told me you can't actually CLOSE the tasks, hence the need for the task killer app. Is this true? They're just gonna keep running and running and suck up my battery no matter what I do? Thanks in advance for any help.
