    Hi. I got a Motorola Droid today. I am having a great deal of trouble figuring out what the manual and practically the whole Internet seem to think are simple tasks.

    Verizon offers classes on this phone, I'm told. I do not want to give them the satisfaction. I certainly didn't need a degree to operate my BlackBerry.

    I hope some of you can help me.

    Thanks!

    What do you mean "I do not want to give them the satisfaction"? I think that those classes could really help you. Of course we are here to help too.

    I don't know quite how to explain what I mean. I've been to some badly taught software classes where I felt patronized, and fear it might be a similar experience at Verizon, whereas I find peer forums like this quite helpful.

    But please don't let me give you a bad first impression; I have been trying to work with this phone for twelve hours straight (just looked at the clock) and I just realized I'm trying too hard. I'll come back when I wake up to try and form some sensible questions. Thanks to all of you for the quick replies!

    :welcome: to the forums Kitten. I would say go check out the Android class but dont listen to them when they tell you to download Advanced Task Killer and you should be fine :)

    @ Corina: I havent seen AnneDroid in a while either. Shes usually all over these Introduction threads lol.
