Ok I figured some newbies could use a thread like this. So please add on useful tips you have. 1) Some apps will not install. Unmount and remove your microSD card and most will install now including Angry Birds. 2) The battery drains like a mofo when idle. Turn this thing off(and hit the reset pinhole) or have a charger handy constantly. 3) The speakers are garbage. NOTHING can be done about this. I've tried the audio boost and nothing helps. Go to your nearest tech store, but a pair of battery powered(small) speakers and live with it...or use headphones. Try this one or something like it: Battery Powered Speaker 4) Flash in the browser sucks, it works...but it sucks. Grab the Dolphin HD browser from the market to work around this. 5) To me this goes without saying but, download a different launcher. Yes the 3d InfoTM launcher is pretty but it's useless. Try Launcher Pro or ADW Launcher, both have custom themes(downloadable from the market) and are pretty sharp on this device. 6) Don't worry about hosing your device. There is a factory reset built in and easily accessible. As long as it can power on/off, From a powered off state, hold power, menu, and back(the big round button) for a few seconds and you'll see the recovery screen. It will put you back to stock(how the device came) 7) To sync Calendar and contacts check out this blog post: http://got-google.blogspot.com/2011/03/calendar-and-contact-sync-flytouch-3.html ** Thanks to Bleyten for sharing this one. Enjoy!
