    This is my very first smart phone and my first ever droid. I have a fair few questions on it. First of all my battery drains very quickly and the battery usage tells me that phone idle is using most of my battery is there any way to conserve my battery more?

    Also I save music and can set it as a ringtone, then the next time someone calls it's the stupid default verizon ringtone and I go to open my music folder and there is nothing there. I found out that the music is on my SD card and so I downloaded thed Astro app and tried to move the music to my phone but it won't let me, and it also wont' let me set the music as a ringtone from my card, any help on this?

    I probably have more questions just none I can think of at this moment.

    I love this phone and want it to work out for me so much! :)

    did the rep u got the phone from install any type of task killer?

    and check out Ringdroid on using custom tones as ringtones - free on the market

    also, :welcome:

    No i don't believe that the rep installed a task killer, he didn't do anything to the phone before I got it. How does ringdroid work? (sorry I'm VERY new) :) ;)

    When you say your battery is draining quickly. How fast do you mean? I would say average usage will run you about 10% an hour. Smartphones use alot more battery than dumb phones. You will more than likely never get more than 12-15hrs on a charge if you are using it. If you have any widgets they will drain it faster as well.

    As far as ringtones. in the music app are you long pressing on the song? This brings up a menu to set as a ringtone. To make that your default ringtone you still need to go into settings and switch it there.

    ringdroid lets you clip a section of a song to make it a ringtone.

    Yes I long click the phone and set it as a ringtone then go in and change it in the settings, but the music completely disappears from my phone. I thought that the music was completely deleted, until I downloaded the Astro app which showed me that it was only on my SD card.

    That's a strange one. Have you tried a simple reboot to see if the music shows up in the music app again?

    Where are you getting the songs from anyways?

    The issue could be they are the wrong format. Try using zedge or another free music app and finding songs that way. Might get better results.

    LG Vortex - contact as speed dial

    I just bought an LG Vortex, and I've been playing around with it the past 2 days. I was adding my contacts, and I actually used the option to add speed dial to my home page for one of them. Is there any way I can delete that off my home page? I've been messing around, and can't seem to find how to do that. If I could get some help, that'd be great! :)
