    Lets get it started;)
    I just notices two cool little things...

    -in the contacts app, swipe to the left on a contact, and the phone will call that specific contact
    -in the contacts app, swipe to the right on a contact, and the phone will oppen the text message app for that specific contact
    -all in the the contacts app, just press menue/more/my profile, and there you can setup your profile (picture/emails/phones/address, etc)
    -on the app drawer press menu/view type, there you can arrange the order of your apps
    -on the main screen or home screen, press menu/edit, there youll be able to delet or add home screen or arrange their order

    have you guys found anything cool?

    Anyone figure out how to silent the ringtone on incoming call?

    All I see is answer, reject and reject with a message options....

    Is there a way to keep the call but silent the tone?

    kewl thanks so much. I did this accidently I set sms and incoming calls to voice so it would read out ur incoming calls and sms. You can go to settings>text to speech>driving mode.

    at your house when your not there
    Also, if any of you didn't know yet, if you use the android keyboard when texting there is a little mic on the bottom left by the space bar. Thats googles new talk to text feature. It tell you about it when you first try it. Its pretty cool when you driving and somebody texts you cause I know I never type when I drive and I hate seeing people do it so this is a pretty nice feature.

    Found it!!

    Pressing the Power Button while your phone ringing in incoming call will silent the your ringtone!

    Very nice! Although I would prefer to see that on the interface sometime in the future.

    I dont sure if you knew it already or not-

    In case, You'd like to switch between the browser and the email without having to go back to the home screen and launch the apps.

    You need go different navigation, you can hold the HOME button for sec , then it will display the dialog box 6 apps u used, and u can switch between them.

    ;)

    Hit your volume up/down key. It worked on the G1, that way, as well.

    You're joking. This has been available since Android's release.

    Do you guys know of the panoramic feature of the camera? If you select it you can take up to 8 consecutive pictures to form a panoramic photo. The more you take, the less the quality. pretty cool feature.

    Ahh nice find... I was wondering why my brightness changed occasionally when I'd touch the notification bar. Now it makes sense! :)

    Hitting the power key will silent the call and lock the screen so your solutions is exactly what I am talking about! Thanks

    Question about panorama, can we take say just 5 or 6 pics instead of 8? I tried hitting back or menu and neither worked.

    Click the little arrow thing on the left of your camera mode to bring out the menu, go to settings, click scene mode where it says None, click on Night, then the disk (i think it's a floppy) on the lower right corner of screen to save the settings.

    Need to do this every time as it reverts back to None when you exit.
