    Double tapping the hope button will take you not only to your home screen, but the center home screen. I've found this quite useful.
    I thought that double tapping the "hope" button would take you to a place where money grows on trees and and your house is worth more than the mortgage balance.

    I realize it was a type-o but it made me laugh.

    To get into the programming menu, from the call screen, enter ##PROGRAM and press send. Enter code 000000.

    In option 04, you can change the vocode option to EVRC-B, or 13K, it made my in-call audio sound better. I'm currently using the 13K setting. Your phone will reset after you exit and apply the new setting.

    Warning: Be careful what options you change in the programming menu, you could potentially brick your phone.

    Edit: Forgot to give the code of 000000 to enter at activation screen.

    +1 to this find!

    This has helped my audio quality tremendously. Why wouldn't this be a default option already?

    Thanks for the link, so I guess I am going to change my codec from 13K to EVRC-B.

    For ringtones place your clip in "DriveofSDcard>media>audio>ringtones".

    So far I've only done .mp3 ringtones, so don't know if it'll take other formats

    I have a case for my droid. Sometimes when I take it out it shows the date, time the weather and a little house on the upper left, some icons and then it just disappears. How can I get this screen back?

    It sounds like you have a case that uses a magnet. Your case is activating the multimedia dock mode and it's leaving the screen on while in your case.

    You want to stop using that case. Did the Verizon store just sell you that one with your Droid? If so, take it back, they sold you the wrong one. The correct case for the droid uses velcro to keep the case closed.

    Download DockRunner from the Market Place. It's a free download.

    How to make direction shortcuts

    Long Press on an empty spot on your home... and create a new folder..

    Open "Folder" and Long Press on the top frame of that window. Rename it name it to whatever you wish.

    Now go back to home and Long Press on an empty space. Select Shortcuts. Scroll down to Directions. Fill out the boxes with your destination address, choose mode of transit, give it a name, select an icon, and press Save.

    A new icon will appear on your desktop.. named whatever you called it in the previous menu... Just move it to your new folder, viola.. one touch directions...

    Home, Work, Liquor Store...

    Enjoy

    (I found those while digging around on Yahoo answers)

    Thanks darkstar. That's at least a work around for what should be in the final version.

    Instead of typing a period (.), you can hit space twice and it will appear automatically. Just like a blackberry (but 1284x better).

    I'm sure you have found this...but when you're using the physical keyboard you can hold alt+dpad to jump all the way to the left/right/etc. Also alt+del = delete all text you've written. You can also click shift then alt+dpad to highlight all text.

    Is there a way to paste a picture that was downloaded to the homescreen? I don't want to use it as a wallpaper, I just want the pic there. Thanks for any help.

    If you want to add custom alarm ringtones for your alarm notification "alarm clock" plug your Droid into your computer, access the SD card, create a new folder on the card called "alarms", and drop the ringtones you want to use into the folder. When the phone is unplugged from the computer, the Droid will be able to use the alarm new tones.

    It's been suggested to set-up the card with the following structure:

    /Media
    Alarms (Folder in Media)
    Ringtones (Folder in Media)
    Notifications (Folder in Media)
    /Music
    /Pictures
    /Videos

    Where the Ringtones and Notifications can have duplicate files if you want.

    Longpress on a blank area of the screen, select widgets>>picture frame. It lets you grab a picture from your gallery and place it on your scree, however it takes up 2 buttons worth of real estate, but it's a moveable picture.

    Although themes are nice you can change an idividual icon by long pressing it and selecting change icon. Not sure if it is a dxTop thing or default.

    To just lock the screen rather than turning it off, keep touching the screen and press the top button.
