... for thinking that a smart phone would be just that. hello folks, new droid owner and an overwhelmed forum newbie. (somewhat) love my new phone, of course anything would be better than what i came from (bb nextel curve), but am less than thrilled about what i consider to be the thing it should do the best, making phone calls. so many steps just to get this thing to ring is baffling. but wait, before you get your bic lighters and hair spry out, i did read, and read, and read. tried a few apps (fast call seemed the best) but still too many steps. not going to use voice dial so forget that, tried google bar but still have to type, select, then call, fast call can only select by letter then must scroll through, and you can oly create so many direct dial icons. honestly i have about 30-40 people i call daily (for work). not including my family. on my bb i just hit a few letters of the contact then ph button- ring, ring. droid- power, slide, ph, letter, scroll, select, dial, ring. is this how phone life is with the droid or am i missing something? thanks in advance for any help and please go easy on me. i never claimed to be the sharpest marble in the bag, thus the name, but i did THINK about staying at a holiday inn express once!
