    I just have a few questions i hope somebody can answer them .

    - How do you turn roaming off on the HTC EVO?

    - I noticed when viewing mail other than Gmail, my inboxes do not display all of my mail, only about 25+ out of my 100+ total. If this is normal, someone please let me know. If not please let me know how to modify the mail settings so i can view all my messages (i was not able to find any specific setting to do this myself).:thinking:

    - I noticed when going under Settings>Applications>Manage Applications there is about a 30 sec. loading/lag delay when the manage application menu is loading. I did encounter a Force Close error 1 time and had to restart phone. The long load time still happens after multiple hard boots to the phone. I was wondering if this is normal and if anyone else is experiencing this. If not i am happily open to any suggestions. This also happens when viewing running services but only with a 15 sec load time. (i have no 3rd party apps installed except for qik,google goggles,google maps, google earth, and google sky map):eek:

    - I have terrible signal in my house and get dropped calls all the time (not the EVO's fault) i never recieve a "drop call tone" which would be helpful that way i'm not left talking to myself. Does anyone know how to enable a drop call tone if possible?

    - I searched everywhere for a "Notes" app on the EVO and did not find one in stock. A little weird to me because most phones come with some kind of note taking tool. :( ; Anyone have any good n safe suggestions for apps?

    - Can someone explain the Android Power Bar Widget to me? I dont know what the "Circular arrows are for" what does it mean?

    - I am just curious, does anyone know if there is some type of external "universal keyboard" compatible with the EVO.

    *sorry for bombarding with all these questions. I'm just a happy EVO user wanting to learn more about his phone. Thanks ahead!:cool:

    My EVO beeps a couple seconds after a call is disconnected. Don't know if this happens with dropped calls since I haven't had one yet.

    that is for google sync. when it's on it will sync your contacts, it turns on the gmail push, and i believe it backs up your texts? not sure on the last part.

    1. Call Sprint and tell them about your dropped calls at home. Try to negotiate a good on an AIRAVE

    Sprint - Define Region

    2. Notes App? Try Color Note <<Love it!

    to fix the mail issue... its on a default setting

    open the mail app.. menu>more>settings>send & receive>download options
    then set it to what you want, days, or number of e-mails and set the caps you want

    mine is set to 14days, so any e-mail older then 14 days won't show up
    if i remember the default is 25 e-mails

    When you see the circular arrows, it means that something is being updated, Friend Stream, email, contacts, etc....
