    If you hold down the 'Home' key, a box much like the one you see in Windows when you push ALT-TAB comes up, which shows you all running application, and allows you to switch to them (I found this out by mistake). You can't however kill the tasks from there.

    good point, I really do prefer the drawing compared to password as I had on my BB Tour, its way faster and still very secure.

    No hibernation while in the car dock

    Maybe my Droid is broke cause I don't understand how something this logical could escape them.
    When I put the droid into the car dock it brings up the car interface (which seems cool) but if you use navigation or maps, The screen hibernates (default 60 seconds I think) which just does not make sense if your driving down the street. It ought to at least be a settings option for the car interface.

    Where is the car dock power chord???

    For what could be a really cool accessory, it becomes just ok since it does not have power plug with it.

    Voice dial and Voice access to the contacts

    This with a one touch button on the car interface would be so cool.
    Imagine it: Your droid is sitting there in the car dock and all you do is hit one button and say "call Jill" and the phone automatically finds the name in you contacts , calls the number and since it is in the dock, switches itself to speaker phone !!

    Try installing the free app in the Market called Corporate Directory. I have not found a way to integrate it while I am already composing an email, so I can add multiple contacts, but it does allow you to search your corporate directory and create a new email based on a corp contact. I hope this helps.

    LOL sir "roughly 8.2784x". Great info math wiz... it's appreciated. I was wondering how simple it would be to crack that. A friend had it on his phone before I got the droid and I tried and failed.

    Yes, I encountered a number of these issues also. However, I purchased the Touchdown Exchange client in the Market and it is awesome. I'm all for getting what you need OOTB, but this was a no brainer until there is a better native client. Give it a shot :)

    Media Player! So much work needed here.
    - Albums need to be organized by track number, not alphabetically.
    - Should be able to shuffle an artists entire album collection without having to create a playlist.
    - Shuffle plain sucks, whatever coding it's using is shot. Same song will repeatedly come up.
    - Genres
    - Albums need to be organized by track number, not alphabetically. (I know I already said this, but it really needs to be fixed)

    BB's media player is more refined and much more functional than Android's. That's unacceptable!:mad:

    Not sure what you're talking about with track number order. I just checked 5 of my over 100 albums at random and they are all in the original track order. Perhaps the software you're using to tag the mp3's is not set correctly or inadequate.

    A direct rip from a CD? Tags are all correct. Edited every single one my self as I've built my music library over the years. My LG recognized the tags, my BB recognized the tags.... why wouldn't Droid?

    Can we somehow get a projector added to the Droid 2.0? Something like that new LG Projector Phone? That would be great.

    I have direct rips from a cd and file conversions from vinyl made with Musicmatch Jukebox. All are fine. once Yahoo bought and shut down Musicmatch I started using Tag & Rename to add file tags and have no issues with any of those files at all.

    How did you put the files on your Droid? Drag and drop or sync with a 3rd party program?

    ^ drag and drop. Should I be using a sync program to get my tracks in order by number instead of alphabetically?

    1. I would like to see the hands-free/voice-dial feature work as well as the Palms I had before this.
    2. Syncing with MS Exchange, my e-mails and contacts sync, but my calender doesn't. What gives?

    It should but unfortunately doesn't. Maybe I'll go back and re do the setup.

    Probably not. There's just not enough demand for an accessory like that.

    I'm not sure. I use drag and drop and everyone of my albums has the correct track order in the media player.

    You may want to start a thread exclusive to the media player to find out if anyone else has the same issue as you.
