    Hi All,

    I'll be the first to admit, I'm not all that tech-savvy, but I heard that Droid was the way to go, and I was really bored with my Crackberry, so I made the switch. Now I'm having wicked second thoughts.

    This phone seems to have a mind of its own, and I'd love as much help as possible; otherwise, this puppy goes back in 24 hours or so!! :blink:

    If anyone is willing to point me in the right direction, I'd be most appreciative. Of course, barring any help, my wallet will be most appreciative!! LOL

    first start by browsing the market. There are lots of apps that make your phone very personal. It took me awhile to get use to it but now it is amazing. this phone will do things you could never imagine

    I agree...we can definitely help if we know the problem

    Also if VZW installed a Task Killer, it will make your phone act weird, uninstall it

    Abe,

    I know....didn't want to throw too much out there too fast and make me seem like a completely hapless female!! LOL

    So, thing one: When I first got the X, the camera actually had a "shutter release" on the screen. Made taking pictures REALLY easy. Now, it's gone and I have no clue how to get it back. Advice?

    Thing two: When I try to check for the 2.2 upgrade, I get a "check for update was not available at this time. Try again later." message. Any clues?

    I'm sure there will be more "things" later.....like when they'll come up with a self-capitalizing "I".....but these two will make me a little happier! :)

    Ummmm......

    Yeah, thanks, but, no.....LOL
    I got a brand new Storm 2 about 14 days before my X arrived, so if I DO make the switch back, I'm covered and this one goes back for a full refund!!

    download an app called uninstaller, it will list all the apps on your phone in alphabetical order. It should be at the top or close to it. It will have "killer" in the name of it.

    Yep.....apps, I've got that covered!

    Thanks....I've found them.....a LOT of them!:icon_eek:
    Sadly, the one app I'd like it to have is the one that will write my Master's Thesis for me!! :laugh:

    Have to admit, my favorite is The Schwartz......:)
