    Re: The Droid Review... IN REAL TIME

    My update also showed up last night. It was there at 3 a.m. when my child woke me up. It installed quickly. I also had to delete and reinstall my pisture fram widget on the home screen. It was no longer displaying a photo. One thing I noticed was that it made me relogin to the Facebook App. My only complaint is that all of my FB contacts that were therenow have two profile lines.

    In general, the phone performance seems noticably faster. Hard to tell about the battery life since I think the upgrade triggered me to play with it more today. I have been making full days on the battery anyway (with a lot of hands-on). So far I LOVE this phone.

    I took a couple of pictures and I believe the camera works better as well. I did notice that the barcode apps read faster. So far so good.

    DROID KEY RING App...

    Yesterday i got to apply my KEY RING app, went to Shop-Rite and purchased a few items, at the register i took out my cell phone, opened KEY RING, tap my file SHOP-RITE and the bar code appeared, the cashier scanned it with her HAND HELD scanner, and it applied, the flat bed TV screen type scanners creates problems because of reflections, so have the person use their hand held. Great App, if your one who carries many of those shopping cards, use this App, it works and its handy.

    I was one who never carried discount cards on a key ring, storing them on my cell phone using KEY RING is a useful and sensible App, i mean who doesn't carry one of those type of cards for one thing or another.

    When you store them on your DROID, it may not recognize your card, just title it yourself and store it, but it gives you the option to send the title/store card to the App developer to load in their files. Beware of what you send!! Maybe the developer can shed light on this procedure.

    DROID December UPDATE...

    On my DROID... i haven't really seen any GREAT improvements to speak of... MAYBE... a smoother touch screen, not sure, seems like it... MAYBE.


    You probably heard by now STACKS of Pro's and Con's after the updates (induced and self-induced) to their phones... some say it works great, some say no change, and some say it created problems on their phone.


    I never had any real problems with my DROID, maybe the UPDATE just tweak it a little, the update definitely gave it a different slide lock pattern, that's the only major change i see or can speak of. See Photos Below


    NEW after update



    OLD before update



    As my DROID is becoming HABIT, I'm liking it more and more...

    STAY TUNE...

    Re: The Droid Review... IN REAL TIME

    For those of you who DON'T WANT 35 Home Screens and only use 3, here's a TIP.

    Go through your contacts and see what numbers you call or need on hand quickly, tap on the number in CONTACTS, then tap the STAR, it (Star) should now will the be highlighted. Continue doing this to desire numbers.

    Go to one of your three home screens options, press and hold (empty spot) until the menu option board appears and choose FOLDERS, then choose STAR CONTACTS.

    All the numbers with highlighted STARS will now appear in this FOLDER on the selected home screen. No more searching for those 5, 10, or 15 numbers you always seem to look for.

    it's heavier than the iPhone, i thinks its the QWERTY key-board and maybe the glass screen that adds that little extra weight, but the weight gives it a sense of quality. I don't use the QWERTY key-board, as far as i'm concern... the phone would of been perfect without it.. what can i say, that's marketing.

    Re: The Droid Review... IN REAL TIME

    Here are 40 tips about using the DROID.

    Check them out...

    1. Make the most of your space by using widgets--dynamic programs that operate right on your home screen. Simply hold your finger on any open space, and then select Widgets from the pop-up menu. Widgets come in a huge variety of sizes and functions, so search the Android Market to find what works for you.


    2. Prefer not to be bothered by a sound every time an e-mail arrives? Head into Gmail's Settings menu and set its ringtone to Silent. You'll still see new-message alerts in the notification panel at the top of your screen, and you can always pull the panel down to get detailed information. You can configure text messaging and other alert-generating apps the same way.


    3. Set up one-touch dialing for the people you call the most. Hold your finger on an open space and select Shortcuts. Then, touch Direct dial and pick the person from your contact list. If one-touch texting is what you crave, use the Direct message option instead.


    The other 37 are at the link below...

    Re: The Droid Review... IN REAL TIME

    I found this move to be useful at any given time, you know when someone is going to call and you don't want to talk to him/her, or you can't take a return call due to current and temporary circumstances, try this.


    Go to that chosen contact, then press MENU, and TAP options, then choose " SEND CALL DIRECTLY TO VOICEMAIL " your phone will NOT ring/vibrate.

    Sometimes you just don't want to engage in conversation at a particular time.

    Re: The Droid Review... IN REAL TIME

    Here's a hint... and try it yourself...

    If your sending a photo with Gmail, or any mail account, make sure you close as many Apps as possible.

    As i was Sending holiday photos, i sent two separate email photos, one right after another. My GMAIL was in the process of sending the emails for awhile, i switch from 3G to WiFi, and GMAIL still kept sending, i then use my ADVANCE APP KILLER and killed as many Apps as possible without interfering with GMAIL, my emails were sent momentarily after killing Apps.

    So if your sending emails, especially with photos/attachments... make sure you kill as many Apps as possible FIRST for a faster process/sending... and less of a drain on your battery.

    TEST THIS YOURSELF
