    Told me I had to wait 3 days before I can touch it so she can get used to it.

    :(

    Well, my wife got her X today, and I've spent the last three hours setting it up and trickin' it out. She just said" make it cool, like yours" and went to bed.:icon_eek:

    Not fair.... I get my X tomorrow and I know nothing about modifying it...scared to root(convinced I'm gonna break it)...and my husband knows even less than I do. Wish I could hand mine to someone to fix and go to bed. Looks like I'll be sticking with all the standard configurations that come on the phone. My only hope of fixing anything is an official froyo release sometime in the next decade.:p

    Wish I could.... I really think I might have bought a phone that is just way too masculine and way to over my head. I am coming from a blackberry and there were more themes available than I could count and none of them involved rooting my phone or doing anything to void my warrenty. I really just want a phone that is personalized for me and works well....starting to think that thats too much to ask of a phone geared so specifically to men.:)

    Call your local Verizon store (a corporate retail store, not an authorized reseller), and ask to set up a Device Specialist appointment. Make an appointment, and a certified specialist will take a half hour or more to teach you the ins and outs of the phone, show you some cool apps, and answer any of your questions. It's free of charge and comes with any Verizon smartphone you purchase. Best of all, they don't work off of commission so you won't be pestered with "buy this accessory" or "sign up for this service" unless they actually see it as a benefit for your needs. Maybe you and your husband should both go.

    I used to be a Device Specialist and I have taught 80 year old women how to use a Droid, so don't think you can't be helped. Good luck.

    I'm kinda put off by the attitude that just because the customer has grey hair they don't have a clue about technology. I've been working with all types of computers and technologies for 30 years now am an electrical engineer and computer scientist and currently work as a software engineer and computer architect integrating webservice front ends and applications with mainframes. Now, I'm not saying that makes me any more aware of operational details of a smartphone, but certainly gives me a step up. The Baby Boomers are aging -- Grey is the new Black -- we're here to take over! :icon_eek:

    and you sir are the exception, not the rule. My mother can barely text. Wait, actually basically everyone I know over the age of 45 pretty much cant do anything tech related without asking someone for assistance. Thats just the way it is, older folks do not embrace technology like the younger generations. However; there are a few exceptions i.e. you!

    It's definitely not just a man's device. It's also for someone with horrible sight. It's HUGE!

    If you have questions, hit me up. I'll try and help as much as I can.
