    1) adjust your account + sync properties to suite you

    2) adjust screen birghtness (these 2 things will make your battery last WAY longer)

    3) then update your PRL and HTC firmware versions.

    4) download any apps you might like

    5) customize your widgets/apps on all 7 screens!


    5a) ENJOY WHAT I BELIEVE IS THE BEST PHONE TO DATE!


    congrats!

    I should have posted the same thing.
    Been just playing with the screens and getting things to somewhat look like I want them too right off the bat, getting rid of the included icons for the ones I want and a few apps that I knew I wanted right away.

    DO NOT UPDATE YOUR HTC FIRMWARE!!!

    Actually, you may not have a choice, it'll probably come with the latest, or update automatically on first use. But if prompted to upgrade, I'd say don't. This latest upgrade has caused worse performance for a number of people. I'd only consider upgrading if you find you have a problem the upgrade is supposed to fix.

    Aside from that, spend time here and READ, READ, READ. Then play, play, play. There's a ton of info here just waiting for you to find it.
