    I can't seem to figure out how to access my contacts from the messaging, e-mail and gmail apps. From the contact list I can select a contact and choose to call, text or e-mail them and then the contact will appear in the "to" of the message or e-mail. However, after I "compose" I can't find an obvious way to add recipients from my contact list.

    What am I missing? It seems simple enough. I have 200+ contacts in the Contacts app.

    How about an FAQ for the different ways to add Ringtones?
    I need one to take them from my computer to my phone!

    These are great a HUGE thank you!

    OK. It was as easy as I thought it should be. There is an 'autocomplete' feature which will display a list of potential recipients basd on the contact name or e-mail address once you start typing in the "to" box. I still think a "list & select multiple" feature would be a nice alternative but not necessary (as long as I can remember how to at least spell the first part of a name;)

    An autotext app, so I can type "dfic" and it will automatically expand into "Droid Forums .net is cool" - like on a Blackberry. Also, support for .vcf vcard files in email attachments as well as calendar .ics invites in email to be accepted would be sweet!

    Is there an easy way to set up playlists? I have all my music in a "Music" folder on the SD card, and then subfolders within those. I thought those would all show up as playlists.

    Honestly, any info on how to best organize media would be great.

    Is there a way to setup two different icons for the Gmail app for two different accounts? It would be nice to have a way to be notified separately. I tried using the email app instead, but it doesn't want to cooperate with the ActiveSync Gmail settings for some reason (doesn't display or send emails).

    I'm new to forums and am still researching the Motorola Droid. I have a Verizon family plan with five phones on it, but have never used "data" for anything. Verizon indicates that I need an additional data plan (I think for an additional $30 per month.) This plan allows me "5 GB per month" Can you tell me what, precisely, or how much, "5 GB per month" is? Thank you.

    How do I save received pics (either txt or email) to the SC card? Have explored all options (settings) and cannot find a method to save them. Thanks for any help.
