    Hmmmm.... I'm Sarah Beth and hopefully I will soon have this phone mastered, ha ha. I feel so...lost....:byeBB:

    Anyway... I am really enjoying everything on the phone except for how the texting processes seem to be working, I'm hoping I just haven't got it figured out yet.

    :mad: Dont like how you have to go about selecting your text recipients, and how I cant differentiate between SMS and MMS messages, It dosent show how manny characters you have typed, Several times I have typed away and it apparently sent out as a MMS message or something because seems like some of the longer messages are not received???
    I have no idea though...its probably just me...I am a little crazy :wacko:

    :woot: I do love, however, how it shows your messages in threads so that you can see the entire conversation LOVE that!!

    Download Handcent. Best SMS app. Makes it so much more enjoyable.

    ... conversations are threaded.

    ... customize ringtone/ LED color for notification

    ... has an option so that you can text over 160 characters and Handcent will automatically split the message into multiple SMS. This is great cuz VZW sucks with their 160 limit. Won't send out as MMS unless it is more than 3 'breaks' I believe. (so 480+ characters)

    ... just make sure to disable notifications in the stock messaging or you'll get double alerts for every text!

    I've also defected over from my BlackBerry. Still have a few berries in waiting but I'm loving my Droid and I don't really think I'm ever turning back.

    Still addicted to crackberry though so I don't think I'm leaving those forums anytime soon. I'm just a phone addict in general so the more forums and communities the better.

    Hello & Welcome!

    I didn't catch it but did you say what BB you went from?

    Also my girlfriend's name is the same as yours but she spells hers Sara-Beth

    Welcome to the forums, from a fellow Blackberry refugee. I didn't hate my Storm as much as a lot of people, but I really loved the endless possibilities with the Droid, and am loving it.

    If you use a lot of IMAP e-mail services like Hotmail & Yahoo, I might recommend an app called K-9 Mail Beta. (The Beta is for the new Droid 2.0 OS, the regular K-9 is apparently for the older 1.5/1.6 OS) Droid's built-in e-mail client was driving me insane with the way it (mis)handled Yahoo & Hotmail, but K-9 has been much, much nicer.
