    well, all the vibrations sound weird.

      then turn them off. vibrating every time you touch a key is going to kill your battery.

        I had the same problem. I thought I turned on vibration for texts, but apparently like "Notifications" or whatever =/= texts.

        So I had to open my list of texts, hit the setting button, and then under there you can turn on vibrations or whatever. You just have to do it through like the actual text screen, I believe.

          Ah, gracias senor! Fixed the problem for me. Didn't realize that's where the setting would be, haha.

            Yea, that's the one thing I found annoying to start was that most phones I had would have one giant settings menu for everything. With Android, it's like each ap or whatever has its own settings menu. I guess it makes more sense, and is similar to a computer in that way, but it's just like going from phones before it takes a little to get used to.

            But now any time I get/open a new ap, I immediately hit the settings button to see what's in there haha.

              Yeah, I've discovered that myself, heh. I'm loving the phone though. I use it for GPS all the time with Google Navigation. Hoping that it becomes a little more reliable, but otherwise it's been great.

              I'm waiting for them to regulate the Android Market a little more, though. Right now it's just too crazy and people are pricing games all over the place. One thing I like for my iPod is how the vast majority of games are all 99 cents. Plus you don't have to worry about getting viruses and such.

                I just got mine a couple weeks ago and haven't been able to figure it out because there is no Return button on the keyboard or anything that I can see.
                Can anyone help me with this?

                  I'm dead serious when I say my Droid X changed my life. I can't imagine life without this thing.

                  If you're a city guy, I highly recommend downloading the Yelp app and the open table app. Both of those apps are so awesome if you go to restaurants with your girl or whatever. Open table lets you make reservations on the spot it's soooo good to have especially in NYC.

                  Another must have for New Yorkers is the Subway/Train app that gives you the locations of every terminal.

                  Vlingo is awesome for the car when you need to use your phone but can't type.

                  The movie app is great for buying movie tickets too. And all these apps sync in with Google Navigation which is also great.

                  If you like having a lot of apps on your homepage, download multicon, it lets you have smaller icons.


                  If you're into stocks, bloomberg and etrade are great apps. Zillow is great for real estate. I even have my Walgreens app for my prescriptions. And amazon app for buying stuff, ditto for best buy, and cnet scan for reviews on electronics. Just scan the barcode and it will give you a review of the product.

                  I work full time and go to school part time, and I downloaded a tape recorder that allows me to record lectures, then I just sink my phone to my auxillary line in my car and listen to the lectures on my way to work and back home, so I basically hear every lecture 3 times, so I don't even have to study that much bc I just remember everything. Pandora makes my ipod useless, and the mp3 player on my phone does as well.

                  I don't even need a calculator, I just downloaded a scientific calculator app.

                  I can do so much with this phone I don't even feel like I need a computer anymore. I use my phone for almost everything now. All my social networks, everything.

                    Btw, I just downloaded Lookout, which is rated as the best antivirus by PC Magazine for the androids, does this mean I can get rid of my AVG antivirus, or should I just keep both?

                    I'd imagine having both would slow down my phone. So I rather just keep one. Who has what and what do you recommend?

                      anti-virus on your phone is not needed unless you're downloading stuff in your web broswer.

                      lookout is going to kill your battery/memory.

                        The battery on my phone sucks anyway. I charge it every day. I download stuff every now and then and attach em in emails. I like the peace of mind that the antivirus gives me.

                          I don't know much about AVG for the android, but I know i use Lookout and it's been awesome. If you lose your phone, it tells you where it is via gps, and when you're near it, you can make a siren go off. Idk, i just think that's kind of cool, coming from someone who loses his phone a lot. It also backs up everything.
