    I've been using the phone for an hour or so , just so stunned by everything about it . Have there been any tutorials/guides released for complete beginners?

    I can't stress enough just how amazing this phone is - maybe it's because I've been using a sony ericcson walkman phone :)

    The W810i , the really old one. The music is very clear , listened to a couple of tracks . It's just a shame that I have had such a long day and am exhausted , would rather like to stay up all night tinkering with the phone :p

    I'll be jumping from a Nokia 6300 to the Desire.

    I have a feeling my mind will explode from the sheer awesomeness.

    It will ! I've just been setting up my contacts . It's probably the most fun I've had setting contacts . I start typing the name , enter the number etc then it suggests links to social sites ( i.e FB ), it finds them on facebook then suggests taking the information from there - i.e b-day , status updates , display picture .

    I managed to get some music on the phone , but am going to dedicate a couple of hours tonight looking on the android market , looking at apps ( no idea where to start with the market place ! ) and sorting out the way my 7 screens are sorted . This should keep me busy for most of the night !

    I'm sorry :) If it makes you feel better , I had the phone yesterday morning and was out till 9pm , I was stuck knowing it was sitting at home and hardly got to use it . That was tough .

    I'm sure it'll be there soon though .

    I won't be able to use mine properly until my old number has transferred over (expecting it to happen tuesday or wednesday...)

    I can still play with it and set it up! My girlfriend might get a bit jealous as the phone will be getting more attention!

    Damn you Matt! :)

    How does it handle the contacts already on your sim card? Can you use this information then grab more details from facebook?

    I've got a new number , but my old one is being transferred . Once it syncs with FB/twitter etc then the details of the contacts already are stored somewhere on your phone . I've been adding contact cards , which takes the information from the social sites etc .

    Sorry I'm a bit vague , still getting used to everything :)

    It really is an amazing phone. First thing i did to the phone was disable friendstream, facebook sync n stuff because i really dont care about attention seeking status updates.
    The battery life isnt too great until you learn how to manage tasks, wifi, gps, etc. I would install Taskiller for this.. has improved battery life a lot!
    Very happy with this phone!

    How do you disable these syncs? FB, stocks etc? just turnoff auto sync?

    Settings > Accounts & Sync. It shows list of accounts that use sync, facebook, stocks, etc. Click on them and Cancel Sync.

    If I click on them I only get account settings, go into that and there are diff options for each but no cancel option, may be coz my auto sync is off, is yours on?

    I believe you can. I do not have the phone (yet), but was just reading on the TMobile forums that you can 'uncheck' Facebook in your contacts, and it removes you FB contacts.
