So, when my Droid arrives tomorrow, what do I need to know right out of the box?

    Of course it will need to be charged right away. But I'm assuming I can turn it on and play with it while it's charging? I ordered the thing Friday night, so I've been waiting semi-patiently for 3 days already.

    Anything you wish you'd known right off the bat as you set it up? Lessons I can lean from?

    Thanks!

    Be careful when you open the box - the way it is packed it could fall right out when you slide the insert out of the main box. To be safe, open it over a soft surface.

    I setup my email and stuff right away. After that go to the market. There is so much there you can spend an hour or two looking at it. Then enjoy! FWIW letting it charge isn't necessary. Enjoy!

    I will be very careful--I was just reading about this. Crazy package design. Thanks.

    Great. That is good news. I hope my kids can forage for their own food tomorrow. (kidding! mostly!)

    If you have an exchange email account, set that up first and all your contacts and calendar will automatically sync to your new Droid. :)

    Good tip. I will be so disappointed if there are any problems like that, making me wait longer. :(

    I have a hard time understanding how you sell a device this expensive without a manual. I tend to learn by poking around anyway, but I sort of expect a manual to fall back on if things go wrong.

    This forum rocks, though, as you say. So I'm glad it's here and that I have found it.

    I wish. No, I just use Outlook as a simple client for my comcast email. I have set up gmail and imported my contacts. I've used google sync to start sync-ing my calendar.

    That just leaves the comcast mail account itself. I'm not quite sure the best way to deal with that. I guess I can either have the phone retrieve the mail itself OR forward to gmail.

    The Motorola website is useful, and has the .pdf file of the manual that you can read or print off (don't let the high # of pages scare you off. The last 20 or so are just technical stuff and warnings that don't impact the operation of the phone). But these forums are invaluable. I got miine on the 9th and come here several times a day and there hasn't been a day that I didn't learn SOMETHING!

    I make a practice of reading as many reviews of each app as possible, and try not to download less than a 4 star app. So far that has served me will. There is so much out there!
