    Welcome

    :welcome: to the forum and as Cornicakes said. Thanks for what you do! as far as the Droid goes. If you order on Tuesday you will have 2 choices. Either NDA (usually extra or 2 day air. Meaning if you get you order in early. You should get it by Christmas eve!

    as far as must have stuff. take a look in the App section. Handcent seems to be one most are set on. It's a replacement for the stk. SMS or MMS app. I use it every day and it rocks! Beautiful widgets, Backgrounds,....the list goes on and on. The OS and device are just awesome.

    Enjoy yourself here. There are lots of folks who like to help and great information available too! Once again thanks for what you do! Have a great day

    Welcome to the fun. It gives you a little time to read up about things a little. Get a file manager, the Droid doesn't have a onboard manager. Read all the reviews on apps in the market ,some don't Play Well with the Droid. Try to install any when you have time to check it out. Yowu can return the app in 24hrs ,if you don't like it.

    Open a Google email account, you can get Verizon to sync and set everything up for you, if you are more comfortable, until you are more used to the phone and it's menus. Be looking around the wallpapers here and start downloading some. When you get it you can make Ringtone, Notification, Wallpaper, and other folders that you can drag and drop onto your phone's memory card. After your contacts are set open them up. Touch the person's icon and hold down a few seconds, you'll get a menu to personalize that contact. Everywhere you go LONG TOUCH and the button on the phone with the lines (menu ) brings up stuff you'd never know about.

    The unlimited Data Plan should have you covered on everything.

    Text messaging is not included in the data plan. I believe the cheapest text plan is an additional $5 per month for 250 messages.
