    Welcome to DroidForums!

    Congrats on the Droid this evening. (btw, VZW is doing a BOGO on Android devices (Palm too) in case you knew anyone that wanted a Droid)

    Hope you Enjoy!

    :welcome: to the forum rayvincent. You'll get quite a few friends. Google Voice is hard to come by. If you got some invites, there are plenty of people looking for them.

    If you do need any help with your new Droid please let us know. We are all here to help each other.:)

    since I'm so new to google voice, I don't know where they keep the invites for me if I even have any to give.
    I still have invites to gmail lol, and those are easy enough to find.
    Will google let me know if I have invites to give?

    Fantastic phone. Just don't waste your time with the built in email app for pop type of accounts. It stinks, but the good news is that K9 mail is free and works perfectly. Mail was the only gripe I had about my droid after coming from a BB. Now with K9, it's great.

    Welcome to the forum. It is, however, very addictive. If you have someone to bring you water and food your'll be ok.
