    This is my first Android phone and I came from the Motorola Q9H Global. The Atrix is insane and anyone I let play with it always comments on the speed. I plan on keeping this phone for a while :D

    I have a few questions that maybe you guys can help me out with, I want to keep this phone in tip top shape, I can get protective of my gadgets:

    1) My Motorola Q9H Global uses the same type of connector to charge the phone that the Atrix does, does this mean I can use the Q9H charger for the Atrix? As in, is there an Amperage difference that's in the chargers that might ruin my Atrix over time if I use the Q9H charger?

    2) I have some random car charger with a mini usb tip that I converted to the micro USB tip that my Q9H and Atrix use. I charged my Q9H with this car adapter but I have no idea if it is actually compatible. If it charges, is it safe to assume it can charge the Atrix without degrading the battery?

    3) I noticed this phone has some form of GPS, if I use it do I have to pay extra for some special service? I have the grandfathered unlimited data plan if that helps.

    4) With the stock Atrix OS (motoblur), on the second screen to the right are 4 boxes that say "Select Contact". I don't know how I did it but one is gone, any idea how to get it back? I plan on adding some contacts to them if that is their function for quick calls.

    I appreciate the help!

    Your chargers should be fine. If you are really concerned you can purchase a new Motorola car charger on Amazon for less that $6.00.

    Amazon.com: Motorola Vehicle Power Adapter micro-USB Rapid Rate Charger: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Google Maps/Navigation is free and probably one of the best available anyway. It does use data but since you have unlimited data that's not a concern.

    To add your contacts widget back either press your finger on a blank spot on the screen until the menu pops up or click the menu button and click "Add", select Motorola Widgets, and finally Contact quick tasks.
