    On the truck for delivery Fedex says :):)...as soon as I get the phone in the next few hours I will be de-bing'ing and customizing like a mofo. Its my first time with a android and a touch phone. I think it will be a huge upgrade over my old HTC ozone and WinBlows Mobile.

    (Pre-)Congrats on getting your new phone! It's my first Android phone as well (..okay, first smartphone too >.>) and I'm really loving it. Yay for feeding electronics, internet, and music addictions!

    Also welcome to the site, particularly the SF forums. Definitely one of the friendlier places to hang out - it's the first time I actively post in a forum o_o. So have fun and stay a while - the slushie machine is down the hall on the left.

    I hope you enjoy the phone. I got my first Android phone (obviously a Fascinate) and had some reservations coming from an iphone. But so far I love it. I am constantly picking it up to try new things because, unlike an iphone, I have the freedom to do what I want with my phone.

    This is for both of you. There is a wealth of knowledge about the SF here. Like you guys the SF is my first Android/smartphone. I've only had mine literally 3 weeks today but I learned so much by coming here. There is no better education than actually just tinkering with it. When it comes to speed bumps you might need help with my best advice is to ask specific questions about your issues and you will likely get specific answers

    REally? that much of a difference? I just converted someone to the Fascinate today over lunch. Actually, I didn't do anything, he just looked through it for about 5 minutes and played some of my vids. I told him about the 'Free Fridays" and that he would have no problem selling his on eBay particularly if it's unlocked.

    EDIT: "his" being an iPhone and "unlocked" as in "jail broken".

    Holy crap, I just noticed you joined in September and have that high of a post count.. Man you post a lot : P

    And I agree, just messing with stuff is the best way to learn, for this type of thing anyways. Not so much for a nuclear engineer. And reading the forums helps a lot, especially the Tech Help area. You'll more than likely use some of it either for your own problems, or helping someone else later on.

    Aha, I see : P Ah well, least you're helping people while doing so.

    Even more off-topic: Is it just me, or did the Report button under a person's avie change a few hours ago, and the Online/Offline one change just a few minutes ago?

    At first, i had made a post (a real friendly one too) and i saw that new report icon. I was like WHAT DID I DO??? hahahaha
