    So, I've had my Droid for a couple of weeks now, and once I worked out my wireless problems at all, I've been loving it. However, in the past couple of days I've started to appreciate it even more, for simple reasons. I discovered that I can put Contacts and Playlists on the Home screen, which seems so simple, but makes the phone so customizable and easy to use! I have one touch calling to my wife and whole playlists! Sorry if it just seems like a noob ranting, but I'm running 2.05 Sholes with 1000 OC, and I've been most impressed by these two things so far :rolleyes:

    Wait until you figure out the beauty of creating folders on your homescreen and sticking all your direct dials in there. Brilliant!

    Coming from an iPhone (original then a 3G), I love the Droid for it's greater flexibility in many respects.

    Then you find AppOrganizer(free) or ABCOrganizer(1.99 and worth every penny) in the marked. Now instead of staring at a bunch of folders on your home screen. You can download any icon pack (most are FREE) and make you droid even more yours.:D

    Its awesome to have the options to do that, then if you want to root it and do literally anything! The sky is the limit with the Droid!

    Better yet using an app called speed dial and you can create thos one touch dials with pictures and then putting them in a folder on your desktop so you can dial by face and not name!

    i still want a buzz client, but yeah, thats a really cool way of doing it. it is usually pretty accurate too. every now and again its like post buzz : apples are a great way to get fiber

    and it reads : post buzz applicious gateway fibers
