    Hopefully, someone playing with this thing can help me out. Verizon tech had no clue..

    I absolutely need my Outlook contacts, emails, and calendar on my phone. I do NOT have access to the Exchange server to sync. The only way I can sync is via ActiveSync, over a USB cable tied to my laptop (or via bluetooth). Does the droid have a sync program on it, that when plugged into a computer running outlook (the actual email program) that will sync contacts (those in my outlook address book), emails and calendar?

    try to sync to google...
    save .csv file...then upload to google contacts, calendar etc.

    or just d/l google sync
    google sync does this

    then you're all set

    Don't want to go the .csv round. Don't want to have to do that every time I add or change a contact (which is way too often).

    Problem w/ google sync is, I'm not going to put all of my corporate emails up on google's servers. Need to keep the information between my computer and my phone.

    Looks like this could be a deal breaker for me.

    sorry I don't know then...

    when I play a song in the built in media player...the volume is very low...even at full blast. It's not even close to how the curve was. I had to turn the curve down and could have on outside and be fine...anybody else's like this? or maybe my speaker is defective bc I thought I read a review that said the speaker was excellent

    > Settings > Wireless & networks > Bluetooth.
    • To turn off Wi-Fi, touch Menu > Settings
    > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi.
    • To add a Power Control widget, touch Menu
    > Add > Widgets > Power Control.
    Note: The Power Control widget is a simple way to
    enable/disable Wi-Fi, Bluetooth™ wireless, GPS,
    Sync (turns on/off all active accounts, Google, and
    Exchange), and display brightness.
    You can expect the following battery charge times:
    Usage—up to 385 minutes
    Standy—up to 270 hours

    While these obviously help, using the menu from Settings>About Phone>Battery Use I see that the screen uses much more battery than everything else.

    If yes, when in "wifi only mode" can you still receive and send text messages?
    See post #8 to turn off EVDO.
    Not sure if messaging will still work though.

    Messaging should come through on only a 1X connection but whenever I try to use just 1X for texts it seems slower on my Storm.

    Try the suggestions in that thread. If not it might be a driver issue? I don't really know.
