    Coming from an LG Dare that I have had almost 2 year. I liked the speed of the screen much better on the Droid. However, I am having a little bit of difficulty navigating the the touch screen on the web. Sometimes I want to open a link it just zooms and so on. Any tips?

    Whyy is the email client built onto the phone said to be so bad? I don't like how you can't have a signature attached.

    Be sure you're only pressing the screen once. Also, when you click on a text box in the browser when using the touch keyboard, it will automatically zoom in. I tend to double-tap near a link, but not on it to zoom it in. This makes it easier to not click the wrong one on accident when they're close together

    It's really just a matter of opinion. Depends on how you use it/what you use it for. I can't really say either way, because the address I used the e-mail app for is one that I don't use often and am phasing out altogether.

    The G-mail app, in my opinion is just fine.

    Are you having troubles with signatures in gmail, or email? I don't use them on either, but that might help you get some insight quicker.

    K9 seems to be the preferred e-mail app of choice for those that don't like the stock app.

    Not Gmail but the phones mail program. I don't see an area to have a signature. Thanks for the help.

    No problem! Like I'm pretty sure I stated before, I don't use that app anymore, since g-mail brings all my mail in. Can't remember if I ever saw a place to input a signature while messing around in the settings either...

    No problem. I also see they no longer tag your emails with "Sent from my Verizon Wireless mobile phone" on the bottom of the emails.
