    Verizon (here in Raleigh, NC) offered a class on beginner operation of the Droid. It was about 2 hours long. In the first hour, they described the general operation of the Droid phone. There were about 50 of us there. For the second half they broke us up into groups by the kind of phone we owned. The Verizon people helped us one-on-one with questions. It was free and very helpful.

    if you need the class, a droid is too much phone for you.

    as a verizon rep who does the classes, inevitably there is going to be, the one "know-it-all" who thinks that they know more than you. Heck, they might, but the only purpose of them coming to the class is to disrupt.

    There is a certain amount of fun that could be had going to a class like that....

    "how do you root"
    "is tethering ok"
    "how do I hook my PS3 up to my phone's 3g"
    "my bugless theme is acting up, which Rom is best"

    Or maybe it just takes some people a little longer how to use a brand new phone.

    Is that really all they teach you? That like the beginners course in the droid forums community. I didn't know what they taught you there or tried to teach you but looks like the forums have come out on top again

    I really think that there are people who can get a lot more from their Aandroid phone by getting a head start first... but then we are all entitled to our own opinions.

    Give them a break.. All the advertising means that these phones are in the hands of tons of non-nerds. Just like the 99% of mac users who don't know how use the command prompt, they just want to use it, not master it.

    Classes on Droids (Incredible)

    Where can i look for classes about my Droid Incredible. I am over 60, never had a smartphone before and need directions. Learning new tech information is not intuitive for me.

    Hi Pastelli.. Contact your local Verizon store. They are the ones putting on these classes.
