Hi, Let me just preface this by saying that up until December of last year I'd had nothing but dumb phones. My boy has had a Droid2 for quite a while, but since I'm older and retired and the only person I knew with a smart phone was my boy who lived in the same house, I really had no (apparent) need for anything but the old phone. In Oct. my boy moved out of state for work (So. Kentucky is NOT a place to find work) and we were phoning back and forth. Last month he asked why I didn't add text to my phone......ah, the start of it all!! Texting on a very small phone with large fingers was not an option. After a week of it I went back into the Eastern Time zone to find the closest Verizon store, and asked for the least expensive deal on something with a larger keyboard and the Droidrazr was on on a great sale. Since I was getting this type of phone, I had no choice but to get data as well as texting. I didn't have any plans to use a data plan....right! Now, after only a few weeks I'm totally hooked on all aspects of the phone. I came to this forum and got many many ideas just from browsing the forum and proceeded to customize the phone to fit my uses. Thanks for all the advice and hints and tips I've found. I decided I'd better join and maybe someday I'll have something to contribute also.
