    Well it's less than 24 hours and I've run into first annoyance with the Droid. When it is asleep it has said/announced "DROID" four times now. Anyone have an idea of why it is doing so and how to stop it. I don't want to have to turnoff all sounds just this one, ????

    Thanks

    there is an alert/ringtone called Droid which is the sound you are referrring to. Sounds like you have email or some other alert set to using this ringtone. You can change it under settings to something else and it wont sing it's name anymore :)

    My Droid had the "droid" ringtone set for all alerts, etc when I bought it. I had to go through and customize alerts for everything, which is no big deal since I've done that with every other phone I've had.

    If you plug it into a USB port on a PC, it will announce itself with the "Drooooiiiddd" notification, too. Otherwise, you have an email or text message or some other notification.

    I use the app Locale and have it set up to be silent from the hours of 10pm until 6am so I don't get audible notifications while I am asleep.

    Just know that there are separate settings menus for the home screen and for e-mail. Probably others I haven't discovered yet. :)

    I have a related issue, only from the other side of the coin so to speak. I'm sure that when I first powered up my Droid, it spoke the word Droid while showing the graphics on the screen. After about a week or so I powered it off and then back on. Now no Droid sound. Tried it several times, but still nothing. What gives? Any ideas? I LIKED hearing that sound.

    Top right button to take you to home screen and slide the volume to the left to turn off sounds at night.

    did you put the phone on silent mode when you went to bed? I always do cause then you wont get any sounds. Don't worry your alarm will still go off if you have one set even in silent mode :)

    It is an alert sound, for email, text or VM. Is your green LED flashing? I love the DROID sound, and have left it on for my notifications.
