    Hey there everyone, I'm new here and this is my first post (yay). And here's my first question... Why does the Droid link a new contact 3 times? (Ex: Google, Google & Phone Contacts) I understand the Google one but I hate that I have to unlink the contacts everytime I add someone new... Is there anyway to turn this off? Because if I don't unlink them, they will recieve a text message 3 times... and I'm sure that can get annoying lol Hope to hear from ya'll soon... Thanks : )

    on your power control widget you should be able to click the circle with the arrows and make sure its not "highlited" and that should stop linking I believe

    oh you're on the D2........ i think it pretty much is the same... on one of your home screens press and hold... a menu should pop up.... click widgets.... then scroll down to power control widget.... hope that helps

    Just got it.. thanks for the help everyone! : ) And just so I don't open a new thread (lol) if I've assigned a ringtone to someone and decide to take it off, how do I do so? I've deleted it (the ringtone) off my phone and it still rings the assigned tone instead of ringing the default : /
