OMG, I have a DB account and never thought to use it on my phone. Thanks for the reminder! Wish I'd have thought of this - enjoy all that new space you're going to have when people sign up off your link.
For those not familiar - this is one super great sharing resource. I use it 'tween my desktop and my laptop. I made a Dropbox folder on my C drive and put all the folders in it that I use most often (web designers have a bunch of them) so that I can share them between my two computers.Deb

Google will sync your contacts and calendar events. Syncing photos and videos can be done via any number of methods. I use Easy Phone Tunes for my music. The paid version allows you to select multiple iTunes playlists to sync, which is great because this phone will hold a LOT of music. Market link below:
If you want to check out the free version, there is a link on the left side of the page I linked to above.Please Thank me or Add to my Reputation if I've helped you!

Let's say your Thunderbolt screen dies. You exchange it at Verizon. As soon as you sign in with your Google account, all of your contacts and calendars sync to the phone over the air. Any paid apps you have will appear in the Market (when on a the market page, press Menu, then My Apps. This is similar to what iTunes would do if you replaced your iPhone. As far as free apps, check out AppBrain. You can link it to your phone (signing in with your Google account) and it will keep track of ALL the apps you have on your phone... you just have to remember to sync it from time to time.

Long story short, if you'd like a way to stream media to your phone, Orb is an option.

Been a dropboxer for a couple years, and love it. But not quite sure if I am going to pull the trigger for the phone app, because one of the recent reviews says:
WHY does this crap INSIST on constantly running in the background even though advertises otherwise.
In your experience, is this a big deal? Does it eat up memory, battery, and/or overall performance?

I installed in on my TB and I'm getting great battery life. It's not installed on my wife's TB and her battery life is less than stellar. So, I wouldn't worry about it too much. You can alwas check and see after the fact if it is using lots of batter and uninstall it then.
if you still have access to a .edu account, you can get doulbe the referral credit on drop box by registering the address on your account. The address doesn't need to be a part of your account, you only need to add it and verfiy the address works, and then you get 512MB per referral instead of the standard 256MB.
To increse your referral credit for .edu accounts go to
