    Congratulations on your new phone and welcome to Android! I love the Infuse. The screen is amazing! You might want to try hitting the Hints and Tips sticky first to get you started. Infuse Hints & Tips

    I started there and it really helped. Also, several of us have posted lists of our favorite apps in here, so that should help too.

    There are a lot of posts about extending battery life in here, but I find if I don't run live wallpapers all the time, don't play too many games and use wifi as much as possible that I get pretty decent battery life. I can go about 12 hours with normal use. That drops if I'm on the phone a lot, but still lasts me the day. With a large super amoled+ screen, I think it helps to keep the brightness down a bit. I usually have mine at 30% when I'm not using it. I use "brightness widget" from the market. I love it. It puts a bar anywhere I choose on my screen so I can just slide it up and down to instantly adjust the brightness.

    Just ask away when you have questions. There are a lot of real gurus in here to can help. I left Blackberry for Android just over 2 months ago, so I'm still learning too!

    By unlock you mean root (similar to jailbreaking an iPod or iPhone), out unlocking foot different carriers? If the first, check out the stickies on how to root infuse. Very simple, 10 minute process.

    Not going to root my phone due to i switched to a Android "jailbroken ipod/iphone" so its a package in its self i dont really see the need in rooting anyway plus this is a phone that may be damaged interally one day and i wont be able to take it in and so many problems i have had with my jailbroken ipod so ill just stay away from the whole thing for a little bit i just can't wait to get my hands on this phone so im asking dumb questions lol cant wait 10/25/11 or sooner O.o

    Also i didnt wanna make another post and i have read some good case reviews but i trust my Otterbox i use on my ipod touch and i don't know of anything that could be better but if there is let me know before i get my phone!
