    Now that we have root, you just download an app and press a button. Easy peasy.

    The "hard" way is only needed if you don't have root.

    actually its not that hard. once you use the app to take the pic it stores in your picture folder. the other way im used to is having the actual app installed onto the device and take the pic and its stored onto your memory card then you just upload it to whatever forum you like. i used both methods with blackberries.

    Use ShootMe from the market. Does not need root on the EVO. Activate it, and whenever you shake the phone for 1/2 second, it takes a screen shot.

    QUESTION:
    i am %99 sure that the answer to this is no but im going to ask anyway

    does doing a clean wipe as followed delete your phone number as well?
    How to hard reset the HTC EVO 4G - Know Your Cell

    i ask this because i plan on doing this immediatley after i get it because the guys at my BB store like to play around with the past few phones i've gotten there, they think they know everything and on my brothers hero they even installed some apps for him because "nobody else knows anything" anyway this is my first android so i want the welcome tutorial and everything

    when i talked to my BB about how they have to activate it all then need to do is scan the bar code and they are done. because i also want to be the first one to touch my phone. call your local BB and ask if you can be the one to mess with it.

    I am not sure I understand your question. When you do a clean wipe it does not need to be activated again, and therefor your number is still there.
    A clean wipe just puts it back to the state in which it was when HTC put it in the box.

    the BB i am going to didn't tell me they needed to set up an appointment, just said that because of the high demand for the phone i would have to wait till the second shipment, which is what i was expecting, and they also said all i have to do is walk up to BBM and tell them my name and they will get me my phone and the gift card

    When you wipe you will get the tutorial back when you first start the phone up.

    I remember back in January I bought the instinct HD and it was a real piece of crap so I took it back. All they had was the moment and the hero that is worth a dam, don't like keyboards so I took the Hero. The guy messed with it and such while he was setting it up. Well I get home I had never heard or seen android I was lost. Did not even know I needed a google account to do anything on the phone.
    So I totally understand what you are saying.

    Regarding the iTunes Agent, can that be used to sync movies, tv episodes and podcasts as well?

    I've probably missed this somewhere so don't flame me right out of the box! I consider myself computer literate but have zero experience with Android. I've not seen anything about something as simple as getting contacts synced into the EVO. I have a vague understanding that you apparently have to sync contacts from a gmail account? So I've got an existing gmail account and I have an existing WinMobile 6.1 cell phone that I currently sync with Outlook. I assume that I need to some how sync my Outlook contacts and calendar to my gmail account? And then when I get my EVO I just tell it my gmail account and it will magically suck down my contacts and or calendar?

    Any specifics on this or a link to an existing explanation would be very much appreciated. :)

    I'm an android noob myself, so might not be the best to answer this, but I think the short answer to your question is....yes.

    In gmail, you go to Contacts (link on the left side of the screen). You can import .CSV files at the like, edit the contacts, make your own groups, whatever. On my old school phone I was able to save my contacts as a .CSV file on the microSD card and then load that on my computer into Google contacts.

    Then when you sign into the EVO with you Google account, it will upload your contacts (and from what I've read, two-way sync to ensure backup of your contacts in the clouds).

    Hope this helps.
