    Well after reading all the posts about how much everyone loves their Rezound I took the bait and went and got one! Only had it about an hour but so far I'm liking it! My buttons are nice and red! And my main concern with getting this phone was the hotspot issue but so far I've been connected to it for the past 15 minutes or so and all is good thus far! Wheew!!! Now time to play around some more!!!

    Excellent! Glad you are liking it. I love mine more and more as I tinker with it. I've replaced the stock keyboard, gallery, browser and launcher which has made all the difference too. Enjoy and have fun tweaking it to your liking.

    So far I do! Only think I'm a little disappointed about is that I lost the navigation arrows at the bottom of the keyboard on my Thunderbolt but by no means a deal breaker tho!

    Go to app store and download/buy whichever you like. I personally love the ICS keyboard available. Once you have done this, go into the keyboard app and tweak any settings that you wish. When you are ready to use it, go somewhere you can type, such as the Text Message app. Long press in the box where you would otherwise begin typing your message and a box that says "Input Method" will pop up. Tap on it and select your new keyboard. Voila!!

    For the gallery, I am using QuickPic. I love it. I think it adds a lot of functionality. Just download it and begin using it. It should pull in all of your pictures. At some point you may be prompted to choose either your new gallery, or stock gallery, as your default. Once you do, you wont have to repeat that step again....or shouldnt....

    It depends what kind of keyboard you like. I also like the ICS, but since I've gotten use to sliding my finger, I really like the flext9 keyboard. There are several choices, it just depends on how you like to type. Just follow finn5975's instructions to install and choose it.

    I also use QuickPic. Great gallery replacement.

    whatever they let me do
    wherever I can
    Should be able to catch it. It has a distinctive pattern. I have this 8 pattern on my screen now. I'm hoping if I stand at one end he will come to me and wham I will smash him.

    The specific reference point I used was this link. It was so easy this cave woman could do it.
