My contract with Verizonwireless allowed me and my wife to select a new phone(s) in September 2011. We previously stored all her appointments and contacts on Palm Tx. With the advent of Smartphones we selected the Droid 3(s). I have spent the last two months trying to figure out all the features of this phone. We are starting to slowly becoming aquainted with this instrument and fully happy with the features provided. Accessing our email(s), test messaging, allows us to see, and respond, to our mail and text messages on a timely basis. The calendar application allowed us to retire out Palm Tx(s). Were very happy with these phone(s).
