    Ok, I'm just saying now don't use any big technical mumbo jumbo with me because I'm a noob with the Droid and I need help. :thinking:

    1. How do I turn on the vibrate when I'm typing? It was on the first day, but now it isn't. It has some typewriter sound and I don't really like that.

    2. So far, I've called 2 of my friends by an accident when my phone was in my pocket. I was sitting in class and my friend was right next to me and he's like "you're calling me" and I'm like ?? so how do I fix that problem. It's kinda getting annoying for my friends and me

    thanks for any help

    Go to the market and download call confirm and that will no longer be a problem. Good Luck.:D:D:D:D:D

    Call Confirm sounds like a good app.

    Not Call Log is another app that helps prevent unwanted dialing. After making a call, it puts it on another screen. I have mine set to go to the main home screen and I have virtually eliminated unwanted dialing.

    From your home screen hit menu, settings, language/keyboard, then hit touch input, then text input. Scroll down and u can turn on/off sound and vibrating.

    I used to have a big problem with pocket dialing and answering. I learned that if you face the screen towards the outside if your pocket, you shouldn't have a problem. I mow I haven't since I started doing this.

    Close the dialer app (press the 'home' button) and also put your phone to sleep before putting the phone in your pocket. For me, that prevented pocket dialing.

    before it enters my pocket I put my phone into standby. Hit the call end button and the screen goes black...

    Never ever pocket dialed.

    Have you ever flashed one of the leaked version ROMs to your phone (you would know if you did this)? Or did you wait it out and simply receive the over the air update from Verizon?

    If you did flash one of the leaks, go to Menu > Settings > About Phone > Software Information and let us know your Firmware version, Baseband version, and Kernel version.
