    I had a touchpro 2, winmobile, on Verizon for 6 months. I had no idea how much I was struggling to do basic items until I got the Droid. I have had it 24 hours and it is doing everything perfectly. Things I could not get winmobile to do in six months.

    Welcome! The Android operating system is phenomenal. You should consider rooting to unlock many other features. I suggest you visit the Droid hacks section to learn more. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made. Feel free to private message me with any questions.

    Thanks everyone. I am trying to get the basics down for my job. Ie personal email, company email.

    The biggest problem is that I have not figured out the notification thing. I can't easily tell by looking at the phone that I have a missed call, e-mail, voice mail, text message.

    I installed "Missed Call" but I am not sure that is doing it, although the program has lots of fans. Everything else is going just fine! I will check out the hacks section, sounds like fun!

    Missed Call : blinks blue LED
    E-mail : solid green
    Voicemail : well the blinking blue LED let's me know a call is missed :)
    Text Message : solid blue LED

    I don't have missed call installed. Just Handcent SMS. That allowed me to change the notification color to blue LED instead of green (which was my e-mail LED color)

    Here's a question:

    It appears for the Moto Droid there is no simple way to capture a screen, only works on "rooted" phones. Whatever that means.

    I am having difficulty with my email. I have two google email's set up. There is only a folder for one. The only way I can find the other account is when a email comes in, I go to notifications, then I can see it. Otherwise, there is no icon anywhere for this account.

    Anyone have a clue what I am saying??? Makes no sense to me, it is hidden. Of course when I go to settings / accounts and sync settings, I can see a total of three accounts. Two are gmail, one is work.

    The account that is "hidden" is sycn'd to contacts, gmail, calendar, picasa. I can go to contacts. I can go to calendar. Just can't find an icon for gmail???
