    Hi I am a very new Driod user and new to this forum. It is all well over my head but I will push on...... (blackberry storm was a bit more my level.) When I created my accout I used my email as my username, I am now regreting this, too much junk email coming. How do I change username on forum? Please help

    Go to user cp on the top of the page. There's an option somewhere.

    Edit: I think

    This can only be done by Administration - We usually don't but in this case we can get it changed if you can submit a username I will get it to Administration for a change

    Welcome.

    I had Admin change my name too. They're really supportive here. Meanwhile, I made $25.89 by selling your email, but they promised they'd only spam for a week ;)


    Seriously, if you had a smart phone prior, you'll catch on really quick. Enjoy!

    Okay I have my pm sent, I will wait see what he can do for me. Now help me love this thing I thought I had to have that now I want to throw out the window! I have been back to the verizon store twice in the two weeks I have had it, last week they replaced the battery, this week they gave me a whole new phone ( battery was dying after fully charged after 5 hours.) They installed app killer and made some adjustments to settings but I just feel like there is so much info and apps I am overwhelmed. What are the simple things I should have or download. I even downloaded and printed the entire user manual to review but am still overwhelmed. Did I mention I am relatively smart and successfull.... Well sort of...lol

    Ok smalltowmgirl, I watched the video on the link, actually understood what he was saying and installed the advanced task killer. Thank you for the tip, I will be eagerly awaiting more!

    That "task killer" was what was eating your battery alive if it was installed on the first one. :)

    Also, if they put an antivirus on there, pull it off as well. Make sure WiFi isn't turned on if you're not using it, ditto the GPS system, and put your phone information (make/model, NOT your phone number) in your side panel. :D

    Let us know if there's anything else we can do to help!
