    hello everyone,

    i am brand new to this droid community. i was hugely into blackberry! i had a blackberry curve and then i upgraded to the storm 2 a week ago. when i was in the verizon store today, i was playing around with the Droid. i was very impressed with the phone. it was very responsive and VERY fast. i was talking to the sales rep about it and he mentioned he gave up blackberry for his Droid. i wasnt sure if i could give up blackberry messenger but i think i am going to be glad i did. the phone seems incredible.

    i just want to know what everyone recommends when starting of with the droid? any cool applications? how to keep the life of the phone? how to keep the battery life up? just anything that can get me adjusted to being apart of this community.

    i am sorry if all these questions are answered if i did a search, but i wanted to introduce myself and say that i have converted and i hope i will be happy...i think i may!

    :welcome: to the forum. You're story sounds almost identical to mine. I was returning my second BB Storm 2 and I had to wait a bit which gave me enough time to play around with the Droid, and that sold me. So instead of asking for another Storm 2 I asked for the Droid. Best decision I could have made and I haven't looked back either.

    Don't forget there is Google Talk. Just have your BBM friends open up a Google Talk account and you can talk away over there.:)
