    Let me just say. I love this phone. I have had many complications though...
    1) When I first got the phone it wouldnt allow me to log into the market. I had to call Sprint customer service and reset the phone!:mad:
    2) It would not connect to my laptop until I did the reset!:mad:
    3) I have a pattern. I got locked out 5 times, Thought I could just log into my google account... not so! i took it to Sprint and he couldnt do anything. Had to go 3 days w/o a phone because he had to order me a new one!:mad:

    Despite these "issues" I love it. I downloaded a couple applications I wanted to know which ones you guys reccomend to improve my phone & to entertain me. Thanks.

    Here's a few..
    Handcent and ChompSMS are both very good for messaging.
    Spare Parts is really good for the Moment in particular due to battery issue.
    QuickUninstaller is great, especially when you first start trying apps.
    Astro is a very good file manager.
    DigiClock is cool. My preferred clock widget.
    Dolphin browser is a great browser.

    I'm still looking for a really good Note app.

    Welcome to the forum. Honestly a lot of your negative experiences sound like user error.

    I recommend you keep your Android lean and mean to avoid application errors. Try out a few apps at a time to make sure it runs stable.

    I recommend google voice if you have a GV#, flixster for movies, just to get you started.

    fx camera is a fun little app for camera effects. one downside is there is no digital zoom(which you can acheive by cropping anyways), and there is no flash support

    My vote for Thomson Reuters News Pro

    Its a fantastic little app/widget with a beautiful UI design that lets you quickly see headlines on the widget and read the stories in the program.

    I Love "Where?" It allows you to see the weather, traffic movie theaters and show times, gas prices and restaurants in your area and more. Plus, if you do need the gps to find your location, it asks you if it may use the gps for just a minute then tells you when it's done and reminds you you may want to turn the gps off to save battery. Oh, and it's FREE!

    A really awesome app I just started using on my Moment is Ultimate Faves.

    It allows you to organize all of your installed apps into carosels. The free version allows you to have 2 full carosels with 16 apps in each one. It runs perfectly smooth on my phone, and I dont have icons littering my desktops anymore.

    A couple others I use constantly are...

    Quick Settings - seems to be the best simple setting changer I have found personally.

    ShopSavvy - Actually works very well to give me a price comparison. I use it all the time at stores now. Any big sticker item I will scan the barcode and it at least gives me online price comparisons if nothing else.. which gives me a good idea of how much mark up I am paying. Works good on the Moment.

    I just got this app and I love it. I had BBC news before but it opened up the browser to read the full article while this app is all self contained.

    cfrock, you should checkout Note Everything, I was able to import all of my palm notes over with a little manipulation and it will import from other note applications.

    Yahoo Mail and Messenger
    Aldiko
    Zedge
    Advance ask Killer Free
