    After 2.5 days with my droid, I cannot figure out how to send a plain old ordinary phone text. When I pull up contacts, I see options for voice call and IM, but not phone text. I looked everywhere I could find, checked to see that the contact was listed as a mobile number. Someone please take pity on me and tell me the secret !!!

    That takes me into an IM screen. It is not for texting, can't do a contact lookup either from there.
