There were so many things wrong with my Droid, I finally gave in and took it to the local Verizon store and asked for a new one, and they gave me one!
Unlike an iPhone, the Droid personality doesn’t go from the old phone to the new phone, leaving me to wonder how much information about me Verizon just got. Oh well. So much for privacy.
Here’s the first picture I took with the new Droid.
What wen’t wrong? Well, people couldn’t hear me on phone calls. That’s a pretty big deal-stopper. Then the on-screen keyboard stopped recognizing the spacebar. Then the back button in the fixed toolbar at the bottom of the screen stopped working.
Now I’m getting all kinds of newbie questions, all over again.
I have accidentally added two Maps icons to the main desktop. How do I get rid of the extra one? Everything I try just gets me more icons on the desktop.
Update: Erik Neu provides the trick for getting rid of icons.
Next problem. Not sure if Lookout is bundled or if I’m getting this because I had it installed on my previous Droid, but I don’t remember the password, and it’s in the “Ongoing” section of the Notification dropdown menu, and near as I can tell there’s no way to get rid of it. Pretty insidious.
True story: I had about 15 minutes to kill in the Verizon store, so I played with their cell phones. The first app I tried out on the Droid was porn. Really skanky shit.
