    Default Hi all, just got today my Rezound and wanted to say hii!

    I've been lurking around for about a month now, gathering info to help me make a good decision. Just received today my spanking new Rezound from VZ Wireless, taking advantage of the $99 sale (btw, after about 3 calls to CS I was able to get one of the reps to credit my acct $30 for my NE2 credit which the website wouldn't apply).

    I'm currently backing up my OG Droid and I'm hoping to be able to transfer my data/apps without any complications. Any tips are welcomed!!

    Right now I'm planning to keep it stock for about a month to see how I like Sense and then I'm planning in rooting it. I'll definitely keep coming back and asking for help but I'm also planning in contributing as much as I can. I really like the friendliness in this forum!

    Welcome! The Rezound is a solid device. Read up on rooting/modding carefully as it is a bit different than the d1. Enjoy your new device!

    I made this same transition, from Droid to Rezound. The touchscreen typing is going to drive you nuts, or maybe it won't. I still miss keyboards and would gladly take a Rezound slider (that would be so awesome, but unlikely.)
    Anyway, since you're going stock, make sure you disable all syncing options for VZW media manager, or it'll just chug battery juice while you're asleep. Enjoy the phone, newb.

    All touch keyboards suck. Typing on a touchscreen is about as intuitive as eating a burger with boxing gloves on.

    The OG droid made me learn how to appreciate using my touchscreen to type. I was a hardcore physical keyboard user until I got that thing. It was designed with a child's hands in mind(I'm assuming). Now if I could get the Epic 4G's keyboard on a Verizon phone, I'd happily go back.

    Oh and so I don't completely spoil the welcome thread. Welcome nica7. Enjoy your stay, have a look around nos casa su casa

    It will be an adjustment with typing compared to typing on your droid. I switched from a blackberry to an incredible and it was for me. I do use the qwerty keyboard sometimes but I mainly use the Slide IT keyboard app with the swipe function.

    Welcome nica7, this is the place to learn about and get help for your Rezound for sure. Although there are other forums/sites, this is definitely the best place to learn and do.

    Hi Doyahkiin,

    I took your advice to heart and attempted to disable the media manager, but I continually receive the following error message: Cannot connect to server. Your server is not responding

    Perhaps this is a good thing? The path I'm following to get there is:

    Settings/Account & Sync/V cast Media Manager/General Settings

    In lieu of being able to open the "general settings" i unchecked the "music, pictures, video" tabs, will that be enough to disable the auto sync?

    That's what I did. Just un-check the file types it can sync and it shouldn't sync anything at all.
    I would walk you through step by step, but I rooted and uninstalled that months ago. But like I said, the steps you took should be all you need to do. It usually syncs at midnight, so you should find out for sure by then.

    Wouldn't that be the Stratosphere? Granted, it does have some modifications to the keys, so it's not exactly the same.
    I'm really itching to jump ship to a keyboard phone, even though I love the Rezound so much. Basically, I'd be trapped to a crappy screen and locked bootloader on the Droid 4, or entirely inferior specs and screen on the Stratosphere. So far, it doesn't seem worth it to me.
    HTC is slacking with the keyboards, man.

    The stratosphere is like 1" too small. It was the Epic 4G on sprint that I was referring to. That thing was like 4.5" and the keyboard was huge. I almost stole it from my brother when I saw it. Does HTC even have a slider Android phone?

    I remember the Merge was supposed to be released on Verizon last year, but it never happened.
    I played around with a Droid 4 at a Verizon kiosk in the mall the other day, and damn, it had such a sexy keyboard. I thought my OG Droid was as good as it got, but this was an improvement in every major way. I was so tempted to use that extra upgrade on my family plan.

    On a phone with a non-replaceable battery and no SD expansion? In 2 months there will be a Droid 4 MAXX...watch.

    I know, I know, but a man can dream. Let's not forget the screen couldn't even hold a candle next to the Rezound's. Moto has fallen pretty far, man. It's sad. The worst news is that Google plans to do absolutely nothing with Moto Mobility, to just let it operate as is.

    Be careful. VCast Media Manager has a tendency to re-check the file types if you reboot or power off your Rezound. I find that I have to constantly un-check the file types. Wish they would stay unchecked.

    The last phone I waited for b4 deciding on the Rezound was the D4, mainly because of the KB. Even though I loved the KB the other limitations (battery, no SD, screen) made it easy for me to choose the Rezound. During my 2 years with the D1 I learned to use the touch KB and once I got Swype I did 90% on it. I already downloaded the Swype beta to the Rez and I'm good to go!

    Thanks for all the LOVE!!
