    Dear all - I am not a technical guy and I am a fairly private individual. I've never IM'd, texted, tweeted, facebooked or been in a forum or a chat room. I don't go to you-tube. I don't plan to start now. Oh, and those little dancing "smilies" annoy me. Yes, I am an old curmudgeon (probably the first time I have ever admitted it, but it does seem true).

    This is the only forum I ever plan to join, because I'd like to get the most out of my Droid2 and it seems like you folks are friendly and enjoy helping people like me. Thank you for that.

    OK, so I'm not really sure what a "thread" is, how to make one or how to find answers to questions you good people have probably already answered. I don't know how to "tag" a thread if I do make one (I see the big red caution note about doing that, further down on this screen. Uh-oh...I just saw "Trackbacks". Again, no idea).

    Now, to the point of all of this. I have read the Droid2 user's manual and I have "played" with the phone for a week now, but there are some things I can't figure out, like:
    1. How do you make it stop making noises when you get an email?
    2. I have a "trial" version of a thing called "Touchdown" to make my laptop Outlook email sync/link with the Droid2 email (or something like that), but Motorola doesn't seem to have "Permanent" licenses. Any ideas on what that's all about?
    3. How can you get digital photos from a laptop into it?
    So, again, I thank you for letting me into the forum and for the time and energy you expend in helping me solve some of these little mysteries. It is doubtful, but if something ever comes along where I can help or return the favor, I surely will.

    Regards,
    Bob in Montana

    Bob, from one not so old curmudgeon to another old curmudgeon, :welcome:

    Most of us old farts hang out and keep to ourselves.
