First things you do with your new phone
I have searched as best I can to get answers from ALL the people in the know to collectively answer my thread for me right or wrong. I can digest what I want but here goes:
Basically what is the first thing one should do with their new Android phone no matter what brand it is knowing that I have no desire to Root my phone?
I appreciate any and all advice that anyone wants to give such as apps to get, what to do or not to do and so on.
I thank everyone in advance and hope to get alot of responses.

The first thing you should do is set a few hours aside to just play around with your new phone. Coming from BB you going to have to learn a new OS which is going to take some time. And make sure you have enough charges because your going to have a hard time putting your phone down. When I first came to Android from BB I ended up losing a lot of sleep because I couldn't put the phone down.

What is stopping you from rooting?
Besides rooting, the first thing I would do is facebook lol. But I usually just play around with it and see what I like and don't like and go from there. I do not like the native SMS app since enter key does not send but instead, enters a new line. Handcent was a good alternative.-Droid RAZR MAXX (Artic 2.2)
-Motorola Xoom (Rooted/Unlocked ICS)
-VZW 4510L LTE MiFi

Consider what it is you think you'll be doing most with your phone and browse apps dedicated to that use. For example, search media apps if you plan on listening to music on it, whether on a streamed service like Pandora or Slacker, or playing games.
Also, do what @mclarryjr said. Set aside a few hours and learn the phone, inside and out. Read up on the articles here and see what features Android has available.

First thing you should do is install "Launcher Pro". Learn from my mistake and do not wait six months to install. Then in no particular order:

I have never done anything to my one and only BB Tour after 2 years and feel this is why I have NEVER had any trouble as opposed to others I know. This is not to say I will have trouble rooting but I don't want to find out. Thank you for your feedback though.

I am in the process of doing this now. I know what I want to do and how I am going to use my new device and looking for apps for this purpose.
Thank you for your comments.
