    Just joined the forum and wanted to let you guys know that I am looking forward to all the suggestions, experiences and opinions you guys have. I've only been using my droid for a week now so I'm pretty unfamiliar with all of the best it has to offer. And also a bit unfamiliar with some of the technical terms/acronyms I've read so far.
    All help is greatly appreciated!

    I don't know if you've ever owned another smart phone in the past, but if you have, specially a blackberry, forget everything you ever learned.

    If this is your first smart phone then just keep in mind that it's still a phone and not a computer. You're not going to see the speed that your get from your laptop but when you compare Droid with other Smart Phones out there, it's at the top of the list.

    I suggest that you take a look at the FAQ's section. Lots of good info there on much of the basic stuff. And of course if you do have questions don't be afraid to ask. We are here to help each other.:)

    Thanks for the info hook! The phone I had before was a smart phone. It just got dumber in time. It had the windows mobile OS which I do miss including the microsoft office programs. Any way to get these (word, excel, etc.) on the droid? Also I could cut and paste ANYTHING to or from any application which I haven't been able to do on the droid. Or, maybe I just don't know how. lol

    Thanks!

    :welcome:
    Fellow WM user here. You will be able to 'open' most MS docs (not pps) but there are no editors for them yet (well, no good ones). So you'll have to abandon the idea of a Smart-phone in turns of an office tool. It's a great media device and a fun phone but not great for strict business use. You'll probably have a good deal of frustration with the default email client as well (I know I did at first). Some people like the K-9 app but while it adds some nice layouts and features it's a bit too unstable (for me) but give it a try. It DOES handle attachments a LOT better than the default app but has some other issues (folder syncing, improper read counts ect.).
