    Im new here but of course I guess you can gather that if I am posting a new member post. I got my Droid in January and I love it. This is my first Smartphone and I am so glad That I got the droid. I had considered a Blackberry but did not like the keyboard on the blackberry. I am not that knowledgable about the Droid but I want to learn. One of the main reasons I bought the Droid was because I am planning on returning to school this year and thought it would be great to have to download reference programs for drugs and medical things for school. Little did I know that I Was going to fall in love with it.

    I guess one of my biggest questions right now is There are alot of paid apps I would like to download but I am a little worried about security of ordering them over my phone. Kinda leary about putting my credit card number in on the phone. Can anyone tell me about the security of that? Is there a place on the internet that I could go to on my laptop and pay for the apps I want?

    Thanks so much

    Chris

    Welcome. If you want to learn, you've come to the right place. As for the security, I can't tell you about the nuts and bolts, but I've yet to have an issue or read of one. But hey, there are plenty of great apps that are free.

    Everything goes through Google. Regardless of what country it is.

    Hello - Welcome!

    I have been using my Verizon rebate credit card. Not sure what everyone else is doing.
