    I'm a blackberry Tour user patiently (not anymore) waiting on my Thunderbolt. Just wanted to pop in for my 1st post.

    I'll be back often to learn new tips and tricks b'c I like to squeeze every ounce of tech out of my devices. That's the main reason I'm switching to the Droid platform, BB has become too boring.

    Can't wait for the fun...

    Thanks Runs with scissors.

    Putting my keyboard away is a bit scary but I'm a big boy, I hope to get used to it quickly. I know there are a bunch of keyboarded Androids but I want to go AlL in....

    I know what you mean! I had the bold 9000, which was the king of keyboards! I'm pretty good with the swype keyboard now; using it to compose this post actually!

    I'm looking forward to swype, the video is cool. So do you do the one hand thumb move or the one finger swype?

    More accurate with the finger but will alternate between both when I'm typing long messages.

    Yo, so how is life without a BB. I used to be on the sister site crackberry.com everyday, but I'll be spending more time here now.

    Thx highjakker, I'm gearing up now. Need to sync my contacts to outlook export, then import to gmail so I can get my contact ready to sync with the droid. Gmail sync via the blackberry gsync app was some crap so my contacts are different between by phone and gmail.

    I haven't used outlook in about 3 years so my BB and backups are the only place I have updated contacts.

    How did you go about the switch?
