    Can I use the same google account on the Droid and Nexus One?? I would like to use both phones...switch out at any time (use one for 1 week the other for the next) or something like that,I could transfer apps back and forth by backing them up and restoring them...will the gmaill account sync without any problems??

    Extra(Root)...If i make a backup (From recovery) of the data part of the Droid and (If/when the nexus one gets rooted) restore it on that,would it work?

    I was thinking about this the other day.

    If phones were cheaper, I'd like to have 2 or 3, maybe 4 to switch between to keep it exciting, kind of like having several pairs of sunglasses.

    No you cant have 2 phones with the same # activated at the same time only one can be active at a time...u have to dial *228 from ur phone and follow the directions presented they ask for the # u want activated and ur last 4 of ur social they activate over the air after that u sign in to ur google account and your good to go...you have to turn the phone that your switching from off in order for the process to work also...

    Uh, isn't March 23 the date for getting the Nexus on Verizon? Only a couple of weeks ago there were multiple folks here assuring me that was the dead certain date. I won't be holding my breath tomorrow but I suspect others may be.
