    Hey y'all....Just got our Droids last Sunday (Valentine's presents to each other). I got the Moto and she got the Eris.

    I am an MRI technologist and my wife just retired from the OR after 20 years there and is now a lead clinical nurse. We used to be travelers and still live in our fifth wheel.

    Finding out there is a HUGE learning curve on these phones. Yesterday, my wife was ready to chunk the Eris against the wall and get a phone with buttons. We spent over 2 hours with a sales tech, (not the idiot that sold us the phones) and she came away feeling much better. Guess we will keep the phone for now. I told her about this site and she is looking forward to cruising around here to learn stuff from the pros.

    Thanks...see ya around.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everybody. I have already learned a bunch. This is my first time to post to any forum on a phone.

    Wendy.....I hear you. Seems like there are two types of patients: The kickers and screamers or the kind I have to wake up when we are done.

    OK. I am done typing. How do I. post this?????

    Total kicker and screamer here. I'm so claustrophobic :icon_eek: It didn't help that at the time I was close to 300lbs, so I didn't fit very well at all. Even though I've lost all the weight, I would not get in one again. Open ones for me!:icon_ banana:
