My buddy got a Droid this week and so far he has several complaints. He feels the product is not ready for prime-time. He says: "I also can't get it to stop checking my e-mail! I have "e-mail check frequency" set to "never", and I have "email notifications" unchecked. Yet every time I get an e-mail on either GMail or Hotmail the phone gives a chirp and puts the icon in the status bar. WTF! I want to be able to use the phone to send e-mail, but I don't want to receive e-mail unless I specifically tell it to go get it. And I sure as hell don't want a f****** chirp every 3 minutes when another e-mail arrives. It's so damn frustrating. The only thing I can do is turn off the notification sound, but that disables the chirp for my calendar as well - and I need that chirp to warn me that I have an upcoming meeting." Can you guys help with these issues? I actually want mine to check for email frequently, so this isn't a problem for me. I didn't realize email notifications and calendar notifications were tied together. That's dumb.
