    Hi. Just got my droid 2 today and I feel brain dead using it.:) I'd like to ask a few questions. When I go to my emails, all I see are my old, read, ones. How can I change it to just read any new emails? Also, how do I download Ebay? I've tried to find it in Apps but can't. Thanks for any help you can give a Newbie and please be detailed with your answers as I am lucky, at this point, to be able to make a phone call! ;)

    Thanks so much!

    Welcome! Good to have you with us. Open the email app and tap menu, tap settings, and look for display or view options.

    I do not use eBay so I do not know if there is an eBay app. Have you searched the Market to see if one exists. Open the Market app and search eBay.

    If one does not exist use the browser and create a bookmark.

    Check out the entire Droid 2 section by clicking the Forum link above.

    Welcome to the forums, nice pick with that D2!!! :)

    Your new emails should be getting pushed to the phone by Gmail on a pretty regular basis, (the interval for checking can changed in options somewhere). Not sure if you can filter for new ones only to show, I'll take a look.

    If the app does not allow then open the browser and enter ebay. Once you find an item to bookmark tap menu, tap more, tap bookmark.

    Ebay Search

    Thanks - I did find Ebay but the only search I can do is on the active auctions. I can't find the completed. Any suggestions? I have it on my old phone and can't use this one unless I am able to search completed auctions.

    ebay

    Its an old Motorola phone, not sure of the model. The screen came up and gave me the choice of active or completed auctions.

    I looked at the eBay app in the market. The screen shots have the following headings:
    Watching, selling, bidding, sold, won, unsold, did not win, scheduled. As I mentioned above, I do not use ebay but it seems to me sold is completed. Have you checked the app? It is free.
