    Hi, I'm Wendy and I have a droid I am very unhappy with. Pressing the top button to turn it on is a royal pain, it turns off the screen sometimes and I can't get it to come back on. With my Blackberry Storm I could connect it to my computer and use it as a modem, Droid does not do that I have learned. My email doen't come down unless i actively press the icon. I need my email for work purposes and it take FOREVER when it DOES work. I hate it- it sucks. All the stupid Apps are not worth the lack of functionality.

    Wow, that sucks, I'm sorry to hear that. I also can't believe someone preferred the Storm over anything Android.

    Couple things:

    1. Do you have the 2.1 update yet? That may help with your screen not coming back on. And, to turn your Storm on didn't you need to press the bottom "end call" button? Seems like it would be the same in terms of speed.

    2. Your Droid DOES act as a modem for your computer (it's actually called "tethering"). Get yourself PDAnet (free for 14 days, after that http is still free, if you need https it's $25 to purchase)

    3. What do you mean "your email doesn't come down"? Come down from where? Do you mean that it doesn't automatically retrieve your email unless you "refresh" it? That's a setting that can be changed (if that's even your problem)
