My lucky day / tips for former Moto Droid owner

    I had a Motorola Droid and liked it very much, but when the Incredible came out I fell in love with it when I played around with it in a Best Buy. However I wasn't due for upgrade pricing until November, so reluctantly decided it didn't make sense to spend full price on it.

    I came down to the Asheville NC area to visit my Dad a couple days ago, and we decided to stop by Harrah's Casino today for something to do. Right before we were going to leave the casino I hit for $500 on the slots and almost the first thought in my head (after "HOLY SH!T!!!") was "Now I can get an Incredible!". Of course the tricky part was FINDING one.

    It's about an hour drive back to his place from the casino and I was calling various Verizon and Best Buy stores and no one had one, and were saying how impossible it was to find one. BUT, one Best Buy actually had one in stock, so we stopped there on the way back and I got it. :D

    So far I'm absolutely loving the phone, it's almost impossible to put the damned thing down, so while I'm waiting for it to charge up I thought I'd post here and ask for any tips from other people who have transitioned from the Incredible to the Moto Droid: what were your favorite Sense UI / Incredible features that took you awhile to discover as a former Moto Droid user?

    Get used to a tap instead of a slide to get the tray open :D

    All in all, they are very similar when it comes down to it... but some of the new sense widgets are nice. I like the sense FB widget for a quick update, but seem to use the android FB app to see things like.. likes and replies.

    But out of the box, your DI is lighter, faster and more fun than a MD! Dive into it and check everything out for yourself, and congrats on finding one local :D

    i also came from a Droid. the Inc blows it away. its better in every single way. i do not regret paying full price for mine at all. sure i wish i could have won one like you, but it's still well worth it to me.

    i don't really have any tips though. everybody uses their phone differently and for different things so it's tough to recommend anything. one thing you may miss is the magnetic sensor, that's about it. there are ways around it though.
