    Hello everyone! My LG EnV2 died on Thanksgiving day so I headed out on Black Friday and picked up a Droid X. Big difference so I figured I'd look for help online. This forum looks like the perfect place to help me get started and keep me informed on everything I need to know. Thanks for letting me be part of your community! :)

    Thanks everyone! I actually wanted a Droid 2 but the store was sold out so I got the X. Getting used to the touch keys was a little hard at first but I'm getting the hang of it. I'm definitely slower at texting now haha!

    The x is a solid device you'll enjoy it. Especially once you get used to the keyboard. there are situations where I type faster on the virtual keyboard.

    That makes a world of difference doesn't it lol.

    Also don't worry too much about accuracy. Its really good with predictive text. I probably didn't spell one word I just typed out correctly. Lol

    You know, I didn't even think to ask lol but now that I've been playing around with the X I think I'm gonna stick with it plus I've been kind of wanting to wean myself off of the sliders and get used to a touchscreen keyboard. Buying the X made me go b***s to the wall on that one. :D

    That's def. all good too! I think less handsets will have a physical keys as models advance, so it's probably a smart move, really.

    I'm just stubborn, bad at texting and a militant D2 fan! dancedroid
