tip: How to get browser to word warp (resize to fit screen in portrait) so you do not have to move screen left to right to read
pinch to zoom to your desired text size, turn phone to landscape and then back to portrait, takes a couple seconds to resize.
Works with stock browser and Dolphin HD have not tried with skyfire or Opera.

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...

where google voice says " this phones number it lists my home number" shouldn't that say my mobile? i click add this phone and it searches verifying your phone and it times out with Your phone number could not be verified. please try again. Do i need to delete google voice and reset it up?May the droid be with you !

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'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!Droid X > 7/15/2010-Present

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. :-)
