    i ordered my droid eris through walmart for free and before it gets here (hopefully wednesday :D) i want to know what to do when i first turn it on. Now what i mean by this is that back in the day when you first got your phone all you did was charge in right when u turn it on, is that still the case (just got done with an old 2 year contract) and if i do charge it right after i activate it how long should i do it. Thnx :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Charging your new phone is always recomended, as they are tested before shipping. Often, phones are pulled out of the box for customers to tinker with (especially at a T-Mobile kiosk). As for how long, the battery icon in the top right corner will indicate when its done (if the phone is turned on). There is also a battery menu in settings that displays the exact percentage of charge. While its charging, feel free to browse the app store!

    I'd actually advise poking around the local settings while you charge. The possibilities are nearly overwhelming even before you hit the Android Market. Then you can really get mindboggled.

    Hey whats that code you can enter on the phone to get 2.1 again? HAHA KIDDING!!! :D:D:D:D

    Any way to the original poster: Take your time with learning this phone. It has A LOT of features and may take a while to get a grasp on everything. It's pretty easy to get overwhelmed. If you have any issues, JUST ASK!:)

    Wish there was more to say other than takes awhile to get used to the phone, but it's true. Add/removing the stock widgets alone is tough. I used to have iPhone, so evening moving icons around was a lot. lol

    With Eris though, the first thing I did was convert a bunch of music videos from YouTube to mobile version and upload them through USB to the phone first thing. :) I waited really almost 1.5 years before I got a good collection on iPhone.
