My first android - did I make the right choice?
So I finally made the jump from blackberry to android. I have tmobile and I've had a blackberry for years. I started with the old 8320 and upgraded to the 8900, and I am up for a renew now. I was hoping blackberry would have something new and exciting but for tmo the newest is the 9780, which isn't much of an improvement over my 8900. Definitely not enough of an improvement for me to sign up for another 2 years. I was just going to wait and keep the 8900 and see what else would come along maybe next year, but then Tmo went and offered up their G2 for free and I just couldn't resist. I really wanted a bigger screen, and if Tmo had the 9800 I might have gone with that, but other than losing BBM I don't see why I should stay with BB.
Anything I should know about my first android phone? I don't even have it yet, but wanted to introduce myself and start reading up on everything ahead of time.

Anything to know about it? Nope, just play with it and get used to it, then ask questions if you have any after playing with it a few hours.
Like anything new, you will need to explore the options, menus and all that jazz, and forget comparing it to anything you have used in the past, because that will only drive you insane.

Not too much to know really. I think you will be amazed at the capabilities android has coming from blackberry, but it is easy to get a hang of it. I just love the customization of android. You can pretty much make it the phone you want with the options that are available.

Got my phone today, a full week earlier than UPS estimated their delivery. So far things are looking good, but a few simple things I just can't figure out. First, how do I adjust the call volume???
2nd - for those of you who have used Blackberry's before, what is the best, closest IM app to BBM? I'm a little overwhelmed with the choices available, I don't even have a clue where to start.

Bbm vs droid
Hey personally I like KiK messenger. I was also stuck with a blackberry for a long time but man the g2 is worth it. I just ordered a bigger battery due my job not allowing me to get around an outlet much. At any rate, I found that KiK was the closest to BBM but I'm sure there are other apps too. Hope it helps.

After having it a few weeks now there is nothing I miss about my BB, except the nostalgia. I had that phone for 2 1/2 years and it was great, but everything gets old eventually. Thank you very much for the WhatsApp recommend, I made my wife a convert and we're both loving it now.
