    Nice toy but for me composing emails and texts are really difficult with the keyboard…
    Also how do you delete or hide shortcuts. Added to your screen?
    Is this it? No office, word excel utilities?
    No searching capability of thephone itselfd
    No to do liasts
    No task lists etc.
    How does a professional get to enjoy this toy? I guess not

    One would goto the market and download the app do accomplish the task at hand.
    There are many apps that do the same task but with different options.
    Everyone has the choice to use the app they want, not what the manufacture or cell provider says.

    Are you new to smartphones? They aren't setup exactly how each user prefers straight out of the box (think of it like a PC). i would highly recommend you take an in depth look at the full user manual first: Motorola Droid - User Manual

    After that, use these forums and the App Market to customize the Droid to your specific needs.

    Simply starting a thread stating your immediate frustrations is flat out useless to the forum community.

    I hope this thread is deleted. It's threads like these that lead to more crap to sift through when looking for answers. In turn, now my response is hypocritical b/c i'm adding to the garbage.

    PS - try the search button. :icon_eek:

    apologies to Backnblack's rule #1 but the OP was being negative from the start. He could have asked for help in a more polite way instead of attacking the :motdroidvert:

    How long have you had the phone? I have the ability to do all of the things you just listed.

    if it didnt come with a hardware keyboard you would be complaining that it didnt have a hardware keyboard. It does come with a hardware keyboard and now you are complaining that its hard to use?...You will get used to it and over time.

    There are hundreds of to do and notes apps in the market. Pick one you like.

    The dedicated search button searches the internet as well as the phone itself. But it wont search inside of apps, like if you have a notes app and you try to search for a note you made in there then it wont find it. It will search through your contacts, the internet, your music, your installed apps..etc.

    you can delete short cuts by LONG pressing on one and dragging it to the trash can icon that pops up where the apps drawer is.

    I'm going to assume this is not just a troll:

    1. To remove icons from any of your screens, long press the icon and then slide down to the bottom center of the screen. A trash can will appear. Release icon immediately and the icon will be removed. Continue to hold the icon and then release and the program will be uninstalled.
    2. Go to market and download DocsToGo. It allows you to read work, excel, & pdf's. If you need to edit or create these docs, get the full version.
    3. Go to the market and download Astro file manager or one of the dozen other file managers there.
    4. Go to market and search To Do or List.
    5. Go to the market and search tasks.

    The Droid and the Android OS are all about personal choices as to what apps you use for very tasks.

    BTW, thanks for belittling my Droid (toy??) and me (professional - I guess not??). Good way to start. I'm still betting troll.

    Sigh...I hate to say it because some of your questions are legitimate, but is it too much to ask for technology users to educate themselves? A couple of those questions represent very basic phone features that could be found by reading the manual or looking through some of the phone's settings.

    Stop being ignorant and educate yourself a little bit.

    I don't think he has a manual because he doesn't have a droid. Troll post only.

    I'll agree with that, the physical keyboard would be a lot better with raised keys, but the landscape touch keyboard is good once you get used to it and there are various keyboard apps like Swype that do even more

    Also how do you delete or hide shortcuts. Added to your screen?
    Drag them into the trash bin...

    Is this it? No office, word excel utilities?
    There are plenty of free and paid apps to view and edit office files.

    No searching capability of thephone itselfd
    Try pressing the permanent search button on the phone

    No to do liasts
    No task lists etc.

    Google Calendar, Exchange Calendar, plenty of other apps.


    Try actually learning about the phone before making an ignorant post because you handled the phone for a few minutes and couldn't figure it out.

    Good grief charlie brown. The droid does ALL that without breaking a sweat. Best to ask questions/search for answers instead of a first post rant.

    An iphone may be worth looking into.

    not
