    Since it doesn't come with memo or tasks app (or so I've read, correct me if I'm wrong) did you find a memo app you'd suggest & if so what is it?

    Also, were you able to figure out cut & paste yet?

    Thanks again Cat!

    there are several memo and task apps out there. i have downloaded one memo app but haven't played around enough to recommend one over the other yet. i also saw some shopping list and todo apps...haven't tried them yet....most are free

    haven't spent too much time looking for cut/paste but still haven't seen it....it may not exist.

    on a serious note...i tried the slide out KB a little to test your FACT....it is your O...i have pretty large hands and i didn't have any of the problems that you encountered. the top row was just as easy to type on as the rest of them....and THAT IS A FACT!

    that being said,i still love and will use the virtul landscape keyboard most of the time.

    don't fret...it does exist i just haven't mastered it yet.... you can hit the up key on the pullout KB then drag your finger across the text to place on clipboard

    found a vid on it

    Glad you found that. It's um, kind of awkward. Not something I'd think many would find easily (obviously).

    Thanks Cat!

    droid vs storm

    98% of droid rocks storm to the ground. here are some of the negatives.
    no bluetooth support for voice dial/commands.
    however the speaker phone input for these commands are good to excellent. command keywords are different so it takes some getting used to. if your contacts include both first and last names you will need to say them both and also (home work mobile)
    otherwise it has full bt support. you can answer and end calls with your bt
    , but you cannot wake up phone or vad with bt button.

    when using both bt voice and bt media, voice will interupt media but may not restore media connection. there may be a fix in market place try bluetooth + headphones.... app

    no dedicated phone answer and end keys.
    you will get used to it and the phone app opens way faster than bb.

    useless google search hard key...unless you google search all day... and no convenience keys to configure...cant win em all

    3 homescreens sounds like a lot, but with the amount of app space you will soon fill it up fast.you can create folders and fill them up!!.

    there are many little quirks that seem redundent...however there are hundreds of fixes and options available in marketplace..
    some cool helpfull free apps to try:

    stay awake and screen on widget... controls locking,and sleeping
    flexillis mobile security...virus and malware,backup and lost phone locator
    not call log prefs!!!!! very cool set where your phone goes after a call
    internal memory widget.....(meterberry like/available mem widget) no need to ever reset this phone because of memory leaks.
    bluerss...blows viigo away!!!!!!! you can use simple keywords to find feeds!
    widgets widgets widgets. all updating on your homescreen. so many available you will soon run out of real estate.

    this is just to name a few.

    have fun!!!!!

    to me,the key is folders not extra home screens....use homescreens for widgets not icons.

    also download "apps organize" it's folders but way cooler and more customizable than native folders
