    I have had my reliable LG Verizon phone for 4 years, and this morning I upgraded to a Droid.

    So far I love the device. The only thing left for me to do is take it to a Verizon store tomorrow to update my contacts and everything with my old phone.

    I have a couple questions though. I'm not sure if this is the correct place, but since I'm posting an intro thread I may as well ask my questions here.

    Firstly, is there a speed-dial system? I didn't see any in the manual. Also, does the Droid also allow for a "full profile" for my contacts (picture, phone number, email address, all in one contact)?

    So far I only have a few apps (Weather Channel, Weather Bug, Space War). The rest are pre-set apps. What are some good apps that you could recommend in the tools, entertainment, and social networking categories?

    One last question: I was told by a friend that the Droid allows for voice-to-text texting. I have used (and loved!) the voice search function. Is there a pre-set way to talk to the Droid, and have it set in a text message, or is that an app? If so, what app is it?

    Sorry for the long post, and I hope you can help me out with my questions. Thanks!

    You can go into contacts, press and hold down on the contacts icon for several seconds. This will bring up a menu. Works this way in several places.
