    1. Open the music app
    2. Play a song
    3. Put the phone to sleep
    4. Press the power or home button to wake it and you should see a music widget to reverse, skip, or pause songs without unlocking the device
    Does this only work if the "pattern lock" is not enabled?

    Swype cursor control and edit keyboard is accessed by dragging the Swype key to the Sym key. Much better editing function!
    Oh dear god. Best. Tip. Ever. (Minus the battery tab tip for the few it saved from having their warrenty voided)

    I don't know anything about the battery tab tip, but I second your nomination of the swype edit tip being the best ever.

    Battery tab tip = dont pull the tab off your phone that says "pull" under your battery. Seems kind of oxymoronic.

    You just gently tug straight up to lift the battery out.

    I have figured out two if my main issues with Droid X,
    1. Poor quality with camera at times

    I learned that you have to set iso manually under camera settings to get quality shots... Use 100 works well in bright light and 800 seems better in dark light.

    2. Volume low issue
    By default the volume is set to use on volume across system, so if you turn down music player the master volume is turned down also..

    Under Settings/Sound and Display/Ringer Volume... "Use Incoming Call Volume for notification" need to be unchecked to correct this...

    Double tapping your finger works pretty good too. You don't necessarily get to pick your text size but, it's much bigger.

    HELP!

    I ordered a ringtone from the verizon store online and received the text message. However, in my current brain dead state, I can't figure out how to save the stupid thing to my phone. My apologies for the stupidity, but, anyway, HELP!!!
    Go to message threader page view and press and hold message that has media file and there should be a option to save file...

    Why don't you just enable the option to log into voice mail automatically when called from your phone? This option is in your voicemail option menu then you call in and go into settings menu through voice mail, You wont need anything changed to message *86 call in number.

    Correction I just learned that this option isnt on the system any longer, maybe because of the new VVM system.... Sorry, this appears not to be a option any longer..

    I have 2 gmail accounts set up on my X, but neither one of them is being recognized as the primary email account. Is there any way to designate one as the primary account, or will I need to do a factory re-set and start over?

    Try this...

    Settings -> Applications -> Development -> Stay Awake
    This is the correct way chefmike. I figured this out with my first Moto Droid and same way on X.

    I'm not sure if this method has been shown before or not. I only thought about posting this because I know people ask about how to do this and alternate methods. Like this method that was posted the other day.

    This method Involves using Gmail and emailing the .apk to your gmail account that is synced with your phone.

    Open Email that contains the .apk attachment


    Click on the Button next to the attachment that Says "Preview" It will open the following Pop-up.


    You may get this pop-up. If so click settings then click Unknown Sources. (make sure it has a Green check Mark next to it. AFter you've done this, Return to the Email. and start again.


    AFter it Fetches the Attachment. It will ask you to install. Click Install!


    And then there you go! you have it installed!


    Hope I haven't repeated a commonly known method.

    Enjoy!

    1. Open a email account
    2. Click left menu button
    3. Select Email Settings
    4. Select Default Email Account option
    5. And select account name to change default

    Looks like this may only work on the regular email accounts but the gMail account appears to not show this but try the option above in the regular email account and see if it still shows the gMail accounts in the list. Maybe it will still work...

    Thanks for the helpful info everyone. I got a question though.

    I have two gmail accs and I have bought all my apps on one of them. Is there a way to switch those paid apps to my other gmail acc and make that other one my default acc thru the gmail app?

    I'm brand new to a smartphone, and am stuck on whether or not its possible to post a video onto Facebook that someone texted to me. I tried the menu options, but nothing I can see at least would make that work for me....and after I record video on the phone, I can't find a way to upload it to Facebook either. Someone set it up for me that I can upload pictures but not videos.....if anyone has a tip for me, that would be very helpful. Thanks. :-)

    1) for videos from text you need to save them first I haven't found a way to directly send them to FB.

    2) for videos you create you need to send them to YouTube and then share on FB.
